6G Summit 2019

6G Mobile Communications Event - a first for Finland and the World

287 participants from 28 different countries spanning all inhabited continents took part in the very first 6G Summit at the top of Levi ski resort, in beautiful Lapland. The setting for such an event was very fitting, as the aim for the conference –and, indeed, 6G research –is to keep reaching ever higher.

With plenty of Arctic attitude around in Levi, the 6G Summit was a roaring success. As the world is preparing for the commercial release of 5G, the expert speakers’ and the roughly 300 participants’ view from the mountaintop expanded to the future, which is coming faster than we think.
