6G Industry Projects in the German 6G Program

Thursday, 8 June 2023, 16:00-17:30, Congress Hall

Session Chair:
  • Hans D. Schotten (RPTU Kaiserslautern, Univ. of Kaiserslautern, DE)

The 6G Platform Germany is the umbrella organisation of the German 6G program. Recently, 18 industry projects and 7 projects on resilience joined the 6G platform. This session aims to provide an overview on structure and progress of the 6G program and to present use cases and technical focus of the 6G industry project in detail. The objective of the session to initiate a match-making process between German 6G projects and interested projects of other European research programs addressing similar use cases or having the same technical focus. Use case scenarios and application areas addressed in the German 6G program are for example campus networks (automation, campus logistics, …), medical scenarios (hospitals, emergency, operation theatre, …), mobility (automotive, commercial vehicles, drones, …) and IoT with ubiquitous coverage (deep indoor, rural areas, in-X networking, …). Almost all components and many new system engineering concepts of 6G systems are covered including Joint Communications and Sensing, Realtime and sync’ed networking, D2D, infrastructure-less/nomadic and organic networking, device management, authentication, security concepts, disaggregation, Open RAN evolution, OpenXG, open interfaces for third parties, massive usage of AI as well as microelectronic components for almost all system components.
