Activities are happening today, that are shaping wireless networks beyond 5G throughout North America and around the world, including initiatives in Germany and India. It looks at early specifications and requirements for emerging mobile communications applications, including holographic communications, imaging and sensing, evolutions of massive IoT (mIoT), smart agriculture, and first responder services among others.
The white paper by 5G Americas focuses particularly on North American technical leadership, examining new applications, services and emerging technologies under discussion and planning stages. It reviews activities by the US Department of Defense, recent US CHIPS Act, standards activities, and North American leadership in the ITU significant to research and future development of 6G.
The paper explores the following key topics:
- Introduction with activities focused on North America & National Science Foundation programs
- Review of global activities
- Standards initiatives
- Use cases
- Technology requirements and network evolution
- Technology enablers and trends
- North American leadership – technology and regulatory
