Each generation of wireless has been an approximate 10 year journey from early research and requirement definition through to commercial launch. With 5G launches underway, the research communities are ramping up on a vision for 6G use cases and technologies. The need for increased wireless capacity and support of more connected devices continues to show significant growth and is more essential than ever for maintaining economic productivity, health and safety. In addition, some of the most innovative technologies and solutions can address a need before it even arises.
While the 6G standard will be completed and commercialized as soon as 2028, the years between will require research and coordination among the industries leaders, innovators, and problem solvers to determine the promise and opportunity of 6G technology. Today is the best moment to begin shaping the technology of our future.
The 6G Symposium aims to increase public awareness, excitement, and engagement around articulating a strong vision for 6G.
A curated agenda of keynote speeches and panel discussions will explore the demand and opportunities for 6G enabling technologies like novel air interfaces, new network architectures and “killer” applications, and offers a variety of perspectives from the future developers, enablers, and disrupters of 6G technology.
Discussions will also emphasize the strategic, technical, and regulatory barriers to developing a 6G roadmap and the effort to develop a community-agreed definition of key performance indicators.
What You’ll Learn
The 6G Symposium invites leading experts from across industry, academia, government agencies and the wireless ecosystem to brainstorm and begin to shape the next generation of wireless communication and network technologies.
From VIP panels to keynote speeches from industry’s leading minds and policy makers to engaging thought explorations of the potential and challenges in enabling 6G, this event will showcase all sides of this life-changing technology.
Participants can expect to learn about the Beyond 5G roadmap, spectrum policy, KPIs, the 6G technology landscape, and more.
