6G Research Visions Webinar Series:

Scoring the Terabit/s Goal: Broadband Connectivity in 6G

Wednesday 4 November 2020 at 5:00-6:30 PM (Helsinki, UTC/GMT +02:00, CET +01:00)

About the Event

Join the webinar series highlighting the insights of the new 6G White Papers written by international Expert Groups!

As part of the 6G Research Visions Webinar Series, this webinar will address the how to get to Scoring the Terabit/s Goal: Broadband Connectivity in 6G.

The webinar is moderated by Prof. Nandana Rajatheva, who led the Expert Group that prepared the White Paper.

Talks by Expert Group representatives:

Expert Group representatives, presenting some of the group’s key discoveries, include Stefano Buzzi: advantages of cell-free massive MIMO and reconfigurable intelligent surfaces with respect to traditional multicell massive MIMO deployments, Josep Jornet: Spectrum aspects from mmwave to THz, Tommy Svensson: Lower layer enablers for agile and efficient dense wireless networks along with IAB towards 6G, Emil Bjönsorn: IRS, ultra massive MIMO and holographic radio, Qingqing Wu: Faster, Smarter, Greener: Intelligent Reflecting Surface Enabled 6G Wireless Network and Italo Atzeni: from 5G to 6G and enablers at the infrastructure level.

After the talks, a minimum of 30 minutes is reserved for discussion on the path towards broadband connectivity in 6GA recorded video of the webinar will be openly available after the event.

Highlights of the White Paper on Broadband Connectivity in 6G

There will be ultra massive MIMO realized with fully digital arrays and holographic radio to create a spatially continuous electromagnetic aperture to enable ultra-high density, and pixelated ultra-high resolution spatial multiplexing.

We expect user-centric and scalable cell-free networking to enable the densification of network infrastructure with access points (APs) in 6G.

We see that THz communications will provide high capacity point to point links complementing the wide area coverage at lower frequencies.

We also believe that intelligent reflecting surfaces (IRS) will be integrated to wireless systems to create a smart, programmable, and controllable wireless propagation environment, which brings new degrees of freedom to the optimization of wireless networks, in addition to the traditional transceiver design.
