6G Fundamentals: Vision and Enabling Technologies - From 5G to 6G Trustworthy and Resilient Systems


This talk reviews the 6G global landscape and the most relevant private and public initiatives, ongoing in the world. Then, it presents the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) technology roadmap towards 6G and 5G New Radio (NR) releases. This is followed by an introduction to the new societal challenges, opportunities, and the latest shift in paradigm “from Internet of Things (IoT) to Internet of Intelligence (IoI)”, which paves the way towards 6G wireless. Beyond that, the talk discusses the new carrier frequency bands, above 110 GHz; and innovative fundamental enabling technologies, such as, e.g., integrated semantic communication and sensing (ICS), low earth orbiting (LEO) satellites, quantum key distribution (QKD), post quantum cryptography (PQC), and distributed ledger technology (DTL); and portrays a network vision for 6G wireless, looking at the horizon 2030, and beyond. Conclusions are drawn on 6G prospects, the needs of security by design for 6G; as well as the potential of 6G for connecting pervasive intelligence, securely, safely and preserving privacy; and new research and innovation directions to cater for new use case categories and requirements, especially for vertical sectors.
