Ericsson has joined Hexa-X – the 6G flagship analysis carrying out that brings together a sturdy consortium of major ICT, commerce and tutorial stakeholders.
The carrying out will start on 1 January 2021, with a highlight on rising the imaginative and prescient for future 6G programs and rising key technology enablers to join human, physical and digital worlds.
In its Outlook for 6G analysis paper, Ericsson identifies four key drivers that will furthermore simply emerge in what it calls “the 2030 era” and which the carrying out will analysis to take care of: trustworthiness of the programs, sustainability via cell technology effectivity, accelerated automatization and digitalization, and limitless connectivity.

As technical lead, Ericsson’s contribution is anticipated to be pivotal in laying the groundwork for future expend conditions, distributed MIMO, man made intelligence and machine studying (AI/ML), and overall 6G imaginative and prescient and architecture. Ericsson will lead several duties to boot to the work packet on architectural enablers for 6G.
“We are proud to be the technical lead of the Hexa-X carrying out, alongside with a sturdy line up of consortium partners from commerce and academia. In 2030, society will had been formed by 5G for ten years,” says Magnus Frodigh, VP and Head of Ericsson Examine.
“While we proceed to adapt 5G, now will most seemingly be the moral time to start collaborative 6G analysis activities. The Hexa-X carrying out will be a a will deserve to relish automobile for joint exploration someday of European commerce and academia, together shaping how exponential technology evolution will meet anticipated requires and opportunities for the 6G era. The road to 6G begins on the present time.”
