North American initiative Next G Alliance (NGA) is planning a new document expanding on the original 6G Roadmap the group published in February last year. The new report should be available in the first quarter of 2023.
That’s what ATIS, the industry-driven body organising NGA, has indicated in a paper released this month. “[The document] will address the important needs of verticals and the intersection with 6G technologies and applications by the end of the decade,” the file reads.
6G promises to be one of the main ATIS priorities in 2023, including in fields such as policy, where the organisation vows to “continue to amplify the work of the Next G Alliance to promote policies necessary for leadership in next-generation technologies.”
During the 6GSymposium Fall 2022, Mike Nawrocki, NGA’s Managing Director, share some of the challenges and opportunities for 6G and the Next G Alliance in 2023.
Goals and Sustainability
Besides the overarching report and the policy work, the Next G Alliance has at least two papers covering essential goals included in the 6G Roadmap.
They will address an AI-native network and sustainability related to energy efficiency and the environment at the forefront of decisions throughout the life cycle.
In addition to those, a new deliverable produced by the initiative’s Green G Working Group is slated for early 2023.
“Following this initial report, the Green G Group is delving deeper into specific sustainability metrics for end communications devices, the radio access network, the core network and cloud and edge compute infrastructures, with more focused reports on target for completion in the first quarter of 2023,” the document reads.
