Dr. Young-Jo Ko is currently Director of 6G Wireless Transmission Research Section in Future Mobile Communication Research Division at Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), and serves as Chairman of the Technology Committee of 5G Forum in Korea. He received BS, MS and Ph. D. degrees in Physics from KAIST in 1992, 1994, and 1998, respectively. He joined ETRI in March, 1998 and has been working on mobile communications. He has also actively participated in the 3GPP standardization of LTE/LTE-Advanced. His current research interests include 5G New Radio and B5G/6G technologies, particularly focusing on the physical layer aspects of radio access.
New Generations of Wireless and Their Impact on Measurement
In this presentation, we discuss our initial views of 6G vision including user application areas, radio access usage scenarios, key performance indicators, and potential enabling technologies. From a perspective of radio access technology, we envision 6G to be characterized by four usage scenario components and three common technical ingredients. The usage scenario components are termed as hyper-performance, hyper-connectivity, hyper-precision, and hyper-coverage, each of which going beyond the 5G capability and extending the 5G usage scenarios. The underlying technical ingredients, commonly incorporated into the usage scenarios, are intelligence, low-energy consumption, and support of extreme mobility. For the enabling technologies, we will address the areas such as terahertz wireless, 3D and satellite based communication, AI and machine learning, enhanced URLLC and positioning etc.
