Towards 6G

5G network deployments today go live at an increasing rate across the world and is already providing a digital transformation innovation platform for consumers, enterprises, and society.

This talk will explore examples of evolution paths for mobile system technologies in the coming years, and even decade, starting from today’s 5G evolution agenda.

Technology innovations in connectivity, distributed compute, trustworthiness, intelligent cyber-physical systems, automation, as well as sensing and interaction will lead the way, and when combined will strengthen each other and create new cross-domain innovation opportunities for evolved 5G mobile systems moving towards 6G.
