This is the second deliverable of Work Package 5 (WP5), “Analysis of 6G architectural enablers applicability and initial technological solutions,”, denoted D5.2.
In this deliverable, we develop and evaluate enablers with the aim of integrating AI/ML and programmability in the network. For the flexible networks design, we focus on developing and evaluating coverage extension solutions such as mesh ad hoc networks and NTN. Finally, we describe methods on how to improve the signaling performance, scalability and resource consumption compared to previous generations.
The deliverable reflects the work done in WP5 from month 13 (Jan. 2022) until month 22 (Oct. 2022), according to the project execution plan.
