About 6GSymposium Fall 2023

Beyond The Hype

The USA has signaled its intention to take a lead in 6G with provisions in, among others, the $280bn CHIPS and Science act. Canada is also investing heavily to play a major role. While some of the technology directions for 6G are becoming clearer, reaching those aspirations through the 2020s will be demanding. Building sound commercial models for 6G and its related services is key to ensuring timely deployments and uptake, which will depend in turn on coordination with regulators and policymakers across multiple domains. We can learn from 5G but there’s more to be done.

So what do we need to do to get beyond the hype and be ready to deliver practical, effective solutions from day one?

Join the people shaping the industry as we delve into the critical issues across policy, business and tech and showcase demonstrations from cutting-edge research.
