08.00 - 09.00 REGISTRATION

TRACK 1 - TUTORIAL & WORKSHOP

Beyond 5G and 6G Network Technologies and Enablers: RAN & Core, NTN, and AI


The tutorial will cover a comprehensive number of software-based technologies from the perspective of the 6G and beyond 5G system as a basis for a highly flexible, customizable and automatic multi-network infrastructure, as well as a critical overview of the impact of AI on the network.

Aiming to reflect the current R&D trends, it focuses on the importance of full softwarization and cloud-native developments to address the complexity and energy-efficiency challenges, as well as on its highly ramified implications towards a high utility, “useful” network, customized for satellite-terrestrial convergence, campus networks for highly diverse use cases and large operators alike.

In part 2 of the tutorial we will take a closer look at the software RAN and core network functionality, data-intensive AI-impacted network management. We will conclude with a study on the different deployment scenarios for nomadic and mobile network infrastructures, highlighting the specific opportunities and benefits and their best-practice engineering in the Fraunhofer FOKUS toolkits.
