5G Into 6G

5G represents a major departure from previous cellular generations.  It will not only focus on speed, lower latency and spectrum efficiency  but will also empower several verticals enabled by IoT and AI collecting and aggregating data for edge computing.

Moving into 6G, one of the key pursuits is support by AI bringing intelligence to the edge cloud performing analysis and generaing insigtful information and enable ubiquitous compting to empower future use cases and applications.

We'll take a broader view as to the trends of collaborative technologies and impact on ecosystems and networking solution highlighting roadmap and applications and use cases.

Specifically, the talk will cover:

A clear understanding of 5G & 6G positioning, features and roadmap.

Architecture evolution pushing intelligence to the edge.

Examples empowered by 5G/6G, IoT and AI including Enhanced Mobile Services, Massive Machine-type Communications and Ultra-reliable and low latency communications.

Use of network slicing for bandwidth efficiency, security and QoS.



Collaborative technologies and impact on ecosystems and networking smart solutions.

Opportunity to participate and drive advancement of IEEE transdisciplinary framework and Future Networks Technology Roadmap (INGR) working groups.
