Target KPIs Evolution towards 6G
This keynote will present a study on the evolution of target Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and technology trends towards 6G. Three timescales are considered, namely short-term (2022’ish), medium-term (2025’ish), and long-term (2030’ish). The KPIs evolution is analyzed by accounting for forecasts on the emerging use cases and their requirements together with assumptions on the pace of wireless technology advancements.
