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.

That there are at least 20 initiatives focused on Beyond 5G or 6G under way or already carried out in the continent
A follow-up to Europe’s 5G Public-Private Partnership (5G-PPP), Smart Networks and Services (SNS) is poised to pick up where its predecessor left off, with at least one major difference. Instead of innovating for 5G, SNS will focus on 6G. Last Call for 5G-PPP...
