Evolved Prevention Strategies for 6G Networks through Stochastic Games and Reinforcement Learning
Herein, a method to find security strategies for intrusion prevention in SDP network is presented based on modeling the interaction between an attacker and an SDP Controller as a stochastic game. These security strategies evolve through reinforcement learning and can emerge from self-play.
eBPF for Telco: A New Approach to Observability, Networking and Security – Rakuten Symphony
Modern mobile communication networks and new service applications are deployed on cloud-native platforms. Kubernetes (K8s) is the de facto distributed operating system for container orchestration, and the extended version of the Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF) – in Linux (and MS Windows) kernel – is fundamentally changing the approach to cloud-native networking, security, and observability. This white paper from Rakuten Symphony outlines the impact the eBPF could and should have on future networking.
The 6G Architecture Landscape – A European perspective – 3GPP
The European networking research community has started a new program along with 33 projects on the Smart Networks and Service (SNS) programme that will focus on 5G advanced and 6G. The 5G/B5G Architecture Working Group (WG), as part of the 5G PPP Initiative, is identifying and capturing novel trends and key technological enablers for the realization of the 5G and 6G architecture. The main findings and results of the Architecture WG are now captured in this white paper, which presents a consolidated view from European perspective on the technical directions for the architecture design in the 6G era.
Near-Field MIMO Communications for 6G: Fundamentals, Challenges, Potentials, and Future Directions – Tsinghua
In this paper a team from Tsinghua University investigate emerging near-field communication techniques. They address two types of recent studies in near-field communications: techniques addressing the challenges and those exploiting the potential
in near-field regions. Their principles, recent progress, pros and cons are discussed, alongside several open problems and future research directions for near-field communications.
The 6G Ambient IoT Opportunity For Supply Chain – ABI
A new class of Ambient Internet-of-Things (IoT) technology, which delivers pervasive connectivity to products that were previously disconnected, can help supply chains provide that much-needed granular real-time visibility.
In this whitepaper, ABI Research provides comprehensive insight into how Ambient IoT enables most items in a supply chain to be connected to the Internet, delivering real-time triggers and information about location and condition at a minimal cost, using existing wireless infrastructure, without human intervention.
3GPP Rel-19 Toward 6G – Ofinno
Recently, 3GPP SA1 started various studies for Rel-19 5G systems. The outcome of Rel-19 may not only show the additional capability that the 5G system will offer, but also provide guidance on what the future 6G system needs to be capable of. This whitepaper discusses the ongoing areas of the Rel-19 studies.
The Development & Current Status of Error-Correcting Code
Shenghan Wu of StorArt shared this lecture on the challenges and potential future of error correction as we move from 5G to 6G.
Positioning and Sensing in 6G: Gaps, Challenges, and Opportunities – Arxiv
This paper presents a unified vision from stakeholders across the value chain in terms of both opportunities
and challenges for 6G positioning and sensing, as well as use cases, performance requirements, and gap analysis.
