The Role of Optical Transport Networks in 6G and Beyond: A Vision and Call to Action – JSAN

The work presented in this paper outlines the role of Optical Transport Networks (OTNs) in future networking generations. Furthermore, key emerging OTN technologies are discussed. Additionally, the role intelligence will play in the Management and Orchestration (MANO) of next-generation OTNs is discussed. Moreover, a set of challenges and opportunities for innovation to guide the development of future OTNs is considered.

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.

ETSI White Paper: Fibre Development Index: Driving Towards an F5G Gigabit Society

ETSI White Paper: Fibre Development Index: Driving Towards an F5G Gigabit Society

This White Paper will address the main driving forces for fibre investment, proposing a way forward for a
fibre development index (FDI), including the definition of country clusters that present similar stages of
development, requirements, and evolution paths. Finally, it proposes some future directions,
recommendations, and related actions.
With this White Paper, the authors intend to set the guidelines for an FDI and the fundamentals for
related standardization work in this scope.

“6G Fundamentals” – IEEE 6G Lecture Upcoming

“6G Fundamentals” – IEEE 6G Lecture Upcoming

Following the release of Dr David Soldani’s white paper, “6G Fundamentals: Vision and Enabling Technologies -From 5G to 6G Trustworthy and Resilient Systems”, the University of New South Wales professor will be giving an online talk hosted by IEEE to discuss the observations and conclusions.

Oppo: 6G AI-Cube Intelligent Networking

Oppo: 6G AI-Cube Intelligent Networking

In this newly-released white paper from the Oppo Research Institute, the authors posit the need for an additional plane in 6G telecoms networks, beyond the control and user planes. This additional plane would be the AI functional plane.

The white paper outlines the role, functions and integration of the proposed AI plane in a well-illustrated 20-page document.

IEEE & Queens University Belfast: Road to 6G, 10 Physical Layer Challenges

This paper by Queens University Belfast, published in the IEEE Communications Magazine, looks at some of the fundamental problems that pertain to key physical layer enablers for 6G. This includes highlighting challenges related to intelligent reflecting surfaces, cell-free massive MIMO and THz communications. Our analysis covers theoretical modeling challenges, hardware implementation issues and scalability among others. The paper concludes by delineating the critical role of signal processing in the new era for wireless communications.
