Global view on 6G – 6G workshop series hosted by Hexa-X

Despite a target of commercial 6G deployments at the end of this decade, globally significant research efforts towards 6G have been ongoing for some time and requirement analysis in 3GPP is not far in the future. In 2030 and beyond, the world will face challenges and opportunities for growth and sustainability while proactively tackling the issues of green deal efficiency, digital inclusion, and protection of health and safety in a post-pandemic world. Wireless technologies are critical for our society and economy today; their importance for growth will continue to increase steadily. This panel will give a global update on the current status of actions towards 6G.
