Scientific breakthroughs in four interrelated areas
THE BIG FOUR
Strategic Research Areas
Our research is organised into four strategic research areas. Each interconnected area employs dozens of scientists who seek breakthroughs in core 6G technology and component development.
Strategic Research Area 1
Wireless Connectivity Solutions
This research area looks into discovering technology enablers. We focus on developing the wireless system concept, studying different transmission techniques and receiver algorithms, and related implementations that make 6G possible. In short, the area concentrates on researching ultra-reliable, low-latency communications and pursuing 1 Tbps frequency.
Breakthroughs made in this research area will make unmanned processes possible.
Strategic Research Area 2
Devices and Circuit Technology
This research area focuses on the materials and circuit technologies required to push the operational frequency into the Terahertz communications range.
Breakthroughs made in this research area will make unlimited connectivity possible.
Strategic Research Area 3
This research area investigates how we might leverage modern Al-inspired cloud-type computing close to users and end-user applications more efficiently. Its primary research theme is Mobile Edge Intelligence.
Breakthroughs in this field of research will enable time-critical and trusted applications.
Strategic Research Area 4
Human-centric Wireless Services
This research area does multidisciplinary research across verticals. We seek to comprehend how the critical vertical application areas are constructed, what the main actors are in the value chain, and how and what components of the key application areas’ requirements must be recognised for different 6G system settings.
Breakthroughs in this field of research will enable disruptive value networks.
