EU Hexa-X Project Gets €12m to Develop 6G Vision

www.eetimes.eu, Jan. 05, 2021 – 

A research project to develop and define the architecture, technologies and vision for next generation 6G wireless networks has received almost €12m in funding under the European Union (EU) Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.

A total of 25 industry and academic partners led by Nokia intend to spend the next two years working on the Hexa-X project, which aims to develop a vision for unique 6G use cases and scenarios, develop fundamental 6G technologies and define a new architecture for an intelligent fabric that integrates key 6G technology enablers.

Peter Vetter, head of access and devices research, Nokia Bell Labs, said, "Even though there is still a lot of innovation in 5G with the release of new standards, we are already exploring 6G in our research lab. In the 6G era, we will see applications that will not only connect humans with machines but also connect humans with the digital world. Such a secure and private connection can be used for preventive healthcare or even to create a 6G network with a sixth sense that intuitively understands our intentions, making our interactions with the physical world more effective and anticipating our needs, thereby improving our productivity."

Nokia is leading the 6G joint research and pre-standardization process and Nokia Bell Labs is already researching the fundamental technologies that will comprise 6G. Nokia expects 6G systems to launch commercially by 2030, following the typical 10-year cycle between generations.
