Dynamic infrastructure-as-a-service: A key paradigm for 6G networks and application to maritime communications – ITU

This paper highlights the missing elements in 5G that prevent evolutions of this technology from meeting future needs. Instead, they propose a disruptive communication paradigm to “ultimately enable the radical evolution of the current systems”, that interlink connectivity and computing seamlessly. They propose 6G should be able to “integrate and release, in a dynamic manner, heterogeneous types of resources, such as diverse types of network entities/nodes with nomadic, relaying, and multi-tenancy capabilities, which can enable demand-driven service provisioning, coverage extension, increased network capacity, and reduced energy consumption.”
