The Path to 5G

Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are the backbone of the modern economy. Networks are changing rapidly: we continue to shift from hardware to software to make networks faster, simpler and more scalable. 6G must be designed to leverage these changing network structures to provide fast, affordable and reliable connectivity to the entire globe. The Path to 6G Session gathers leaders in the 6G space who are designing the networks of tomorrow. 

Key challenges 6G must address include trust and security, resilience and sustainability, innovations in wireless technology and materials engineering, as well as 6G integration with complementary technologies including cloud and AI. The networks of the future must do more than ever, while consuming less power and providing heterogeneous and ubiquitous connectivity. How do we balance cutting-edge technology with the need to bridge the digital divide and keep costs low? Do applications drive the technology, or does technology drive next-gen applications? And how can the industry more rapidly and create agile solutions, all while being more secure than ever?  

These topics and others will be discussed among experts across industry, academia and government. The talks and will provide an overview of where we are today and a roadmap of where we need to be in the next 5-10 years.
