Key Drivers and Research Challenges for 6G Ubiquitous Wireless Intelligence

As fifth generation (5G) research is maturing towards a global standard, the research community must focus on the development of beyond-5G solutions and the 2030 era, i.e. 6G. It is not clear yet what 6G will entail. It will include relevant technologies considered too immature for 5G or which are outside the defined scope of 5G. More specifically, the way in which data is collected, processed, transmitted and consumed within the wireless network will be a key driver for 6G.

The first 6G Wireless Summit in March 2019 launched the process of identifying the key drivers, research requirements, challenges and essential research questions related to 6G. This white paper is the first version for the annually revised series of 6G research visions and can be phrased in one vision statement from the first 6G Wireless Summit: Ubiquitous wireless intelligence.
