Future Beyond 5G(B5G)/6G networks are expected to support the massive number of connected devices/sensors/machines with enhanced Ultra-Reliable and Low-Latency (e-URLLC) to realize the end-to-end latency of about 0.01 ms with 99.9999% reliability. Towards supporting the e-URLLC, ultra-low energy-consumption and high capacity links targeted by B5G/6G networks, it is crucial to introduce innovation at the edge-and device-level by addressing several constraints such as power limitations, low computational capacity and limited storage capacity over a range of radio frequencies including millimetre wave (mmWave), TeraHertz (THz)and optical bands. The recent advances in edge computing architecture and technologies with the notion of “edge processing as a service” are expected to enable e-URLLC in future networks, by bringing the computing and storage capabilities near to the end-users. Furthermore, potential device-level innovations include the design of efficient power amplifiers, receiver filters capable of operating in higher frequencies, efficient multi-antenna arrays for end-users, inter-chip communications via THz line-of-sight links, lightweight modulation and coding for high-speed communications, near-field communications and backscatter communications for zero-energy devices.
