TSDSI Session on “Looking Beyond 5G – Path to 6G”@Convergence India 2021 (March 24, 2021: Pragati Maidan, New Delhi + Online)

March 24, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

TSDSI is proud to announce a session on “Looking Beyond 5G – Path to 6G” in Convergence India 2021

About the Session:

ITU has recently approved three Radio Interface technologies – 3GPP 5G-SRIT, 3GPP 5G-RIT and TSDSI’s 5Gi conforming to the International Mobile Telecommunications 2020 (IMT-2020), aka 5G. These will now be used for global commercial deployments. 5G is slated to become the backbone of tomorrow’s digital economy – driven by an ecosystem of near ubiquitous, intelligent at the edge, connected devices in various verticals, apart from realization of AR/VR based applications for users.  Learnings and feedback from these deployments will continue to tune the standards in the coming days and shape the technology evolution path.

Meanwhile, the research community has already begun deliberations on technologies for the next decade – looking beyond 5G and 6G, from 2018 onwards. Academic Institutes and Research agencies, technology companies and fast-growing breed of deep technology startups in Europe, America and Asia Pacific regions are involved in focus activities to explore the use cases and potential technologies.

Global Standards forums, (including ITU and 3GPP) are spearheading efforts in this area. Topics such as holographic type communications, extremely fast response in critical situations, high-precision communication demands of emerging market verticals, large intelligent surfaces, waveforms, free space optics, Non-terrestrial networks are some areas under deliberation. TSDSI has formally initiated a technical study on “Use Cases, Requirements and Technologies for 6G”.

It is important for India to chalk out a roadmap for technology development and indigenous IP creation that meets India and global needs and ensure our taking a leadership position in defining global standards – the path to 6G.

This session will examine the landscape from the lens of technologies, network architecture, applications – giving viewpoints from Operators, infrastructure and value-added Service Providers, R&D and Academia.
