The “European Vision for the 6G Network Ecosystem” white paper paints a portrait of what to expect from the next cellular generation.
Overall, 6G is expected to be a self-contained ecosystem with flexible management and control and automated human-like decision-making processes. It will build on top of the current human-centric network architecture where service-specific variations (vertical-oriented network slices) apply to a holistic self-learning service provisioning platform, engaging any type of connectivity and device.
KPIs such as affordability, scalability and sustainability drive the design of the 6G era, while the network programmability (introduced in5G), stands in the epicentre of a self-learning network management controlled by the infrastructure owners and the vertical service providers.
