1st 6G Wireless Summit 26 March, 2019

6G: The beauty of a simpler network life

After five generations, a lot of legacy cruft has accumulated in wireless and wireline networks. Thus, it’s time to apply KonMari to the wireless network, getting rid of all the parts that no longer spark joy, including the legacy components that made sense when GSM was the dominant technology. Networks should be fully PHY-agnostic, not require classical network operators, natively implement security everywhere, and allow incremental building of automated networks that work in both residential, commercial, and public settings, with clean separation of components. For example, authentication and authorization should not depend on a small set of carrier-like entities.



Thank you to all who participated or co-operated in making the 1st 6G Summit happen!
