6Genesis (the 6G-Enabled Wireless Smart Society & Ecosystem) project

Speaker(s) : Madhusanka Liyanage (Oulu University, Finland)
Abstract: The 6Genesis flagship project is focused on the development of wireless technology, exploring the implementation of the fifth generation of mobile communication technology (5G) and the development of the 6G standard. The flagship will support industry in bringing the 5G standard to the commercialisation stage by carrying out large pilots with a test network. It will also develop essential technology components needed for 6G, targeting areas such as wireless connectivity and distributed intelligent computing and novel applications of these. In addition to communication between people, the research will focus on communication between devices, processes and objects. This will contribute to enabling a highly automated, smart society, which will penetrate all areas of life in the future. More Info:
