Tuesday, October 20, 2020 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:10 p.m. EST

With each new generation of wireless, it is common to determine its capabilities and limits even before the technology is introduced. As 5G is deployed and standardized around the globe, the industry is eager to explore and begin developing a consensus around 6G and its key performance indicators (KPIs), including roughly 1 Tbps system capacity, user plane latency of <0.1ms, and per-user data rate of few Gbps.

With much debate around the use cases and KPIs that will eventually give meaning to 6G, this panel invites experts from across industry and academia to discuss the applications that will be enabled by 6G, including volumetric media streaming, connected industries and automation, multi-sensory extended reality, and eHealth, in addition to the political, economic, social, and technical drivers that will help shape consensus-driven KPIs for 6G.
