Browse the connections between EU-funded 6G research initiatives and institutions in this interactive graph based on the CORDIS database
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.
IEEE members Wei Jiang, Bin Han,
Mohammad Asif Habibi, and Hans Dieter Schotten collate a comprehensive survey of 6G's elements, status, and possible future directions. The authors investigate 6G as a set of communications network technologies, and apply a scope and treatment appropriate to that definition.
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.
The final panel of the 6GSymposium addressed the way that 5G has brought the introduction of cloud native platforms, the disaggregation of radio access networks, and a paradigm shift towards openness – together with complexity. Future 6G testbeds will need to be much more flexible and support the integration of multiple technologies. This panel teases out the complexities of how we even begin to prepare for 6G, thanks to insights from the University of Oulu, Nokia Bell Labs, Facebook, Parallel Wireless and North Carolina State University.
