6G Flagship research program has published world’s first 6G white paper which opens the floor for defining the 2030 wireless era.

The white paper “Key Drivers and Research Challenges for 6G Ubiquitous Wireless Intelligence” is based on the views that 70 invited experts shared during a special workshop at the first 6G Wireless Summit in Finnish Lapland in March 2019. The publication focuses on the key drivers, research requirements, challenges and research questions towards 6G.

“As 5G research is maturing and continues to support global standardization, we must already engage in mapping what 6G can become at its boldest”, says professor Matti Latva-aho, the director of 6G Flagship at the University of Oulu, who edited the white paper with professor Kari Leppänen.

The publication presents a strong vision of ubiquitous wireless intelligence for 2030. Ubiquitous services will follow users seamlessly, everywhere, and wireless connectivity will be part of critical infrastructure. Furthermore, intelligence will create context-aware smart services and applications for human and non-human users alike.

Latva-aho says he wants to make sure that 6G becomes a joint effort of traditional and new stakeholders. The clarification of 6G vision continues in the second 6G Wireless Summit on 17-20 March 2020.
