Peiying Zhu, Huawei

Dr. Peiying Zhu, Senior Vice President of Wireless Research, is a Huawei Fellow and IEEE Fellow. She is currently leading 5G and beyond wireless research in Huawei. The focus of her research is advanced wireless access technologies with more than 200 granted patents. She has been regularly giving talks and panel discussions on 5G vision, enabling technologies and standards. She served as the guest editor for IEEE Signal processing magazine special issue on the 5G revolution and IEEE JSAC on Deployment Issues and Performance Challenges for 5G. She co-chaired various 5G workshops in IEEE GLOBECOM. She is actively involved in 3GPP and IEEE 802 standards development. She is currently a WiFi Alliance Board member.  

Prior to joining Huawei in 2009, Peiying was a Nortel Fellow and Director of Advanced Wireless Access Technology in the Nortel Wireless Technology Lab. She led the team and pioneered research and prototyping on MIMO-OFDM and Multi-hop relay. Many of these technologies developed by the team have been adopted into LTE standards and 4G products. 

6G: The Next Horizon

Today, 5G becomes a reality as we have witnessed the global roll-out of 5G networks. The 5G deployment will realize the vision of “connect of everything” and become the fundamental platform to enable the digital transformation for every vertical business.  

Next on the horizon, we see the emerging of 6G, 6G is believed to realize “connected intelligence”, and solving human challenges in many aspects. The research community start to look into the vision and requirements to define the 6G, the long term process for technology research, ecosystem alignment and global standardization will continue to carry on for next 5 to 8 years, in this talk we share our perspective on the 6G evolution and its path.   

We also present the earlier definition for 6G and the view on enabling technologies. The spectrum allocation opportunities and envisioned timeline. We discuss the key question regarding the applications and services which can be enabled by 6G.
