According to a 6GWorld™ mapping of the CORDIS database, Ericsson, NEC Laboratories, and CEA (Commissariat a L’Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives) received the most funding from the European Union to carry out research on Beyond 5G and 6G. Since 2017, the...
That there are at least 20 initiatives focused on Beyond 5G or 6G under way or already carried out in the continent
In this paper, we attempt to paint a broad picture of
communication needs and technologies in the timeframe of 6G. The future of connectivity
is in the creation of digital twin worlds that are a true representation of the physical and
biological worlds at every spatial and time instant, unifying our experience across these
physical, biological and digital worlds. New themes are likely to emerge that will shape 6G
system requirements and technologies, such as: (i) new man–machine interfaces created
by a collection of multiple local devices acting in unison; (ii) ubiquitous universal computing
distributed among multiple local devices and the cloud; (iii) multi-sensory data fusion to
create multi-verse maps and new mixed-reality experiences; and (iv) precision sensing
and actuation to control the physical world.
What can be done to secure the networks and systems that citizens, companies, and states rely on now and in the future? Here are three of the most interesting recent pieces of thought leadership.
A poll conducted by 6GWorld answered the question of “Who should take the lead defining use cases beyond 5G?” It illustrates a diversity of attitudes towards the evolution of the industry. 6GWorld caught up with a few experts to share their views on what these results tell us.
In this section of the 6GSymposium, Northeastern University's David Luzzi is joined by Walter Copan of NIST to talk about how the US' research platforms function and coordinate; and what we can expect from them in the coming years as the fundamental elements of beyond-5G systems are put in place.
6G might effectively ignore the Shannon limit. Xiaohu You of Southeast University has proposed a number of techniques to improve not only data rates but reliability and spectrum re-use that can help meet 6G’s stringent demands… by breaking down the concept of cellular communications itself.
