Nokia 6G has rolled up its sleeves for research. Nokia will conduct new research for the European Commission’s Hexa-X project.
While the whole world is focused on 5G, in fact, studies for 6G have started slowly. The European Commission launched the 6G research project Hexa-X to promote the development of 6G technology in Europe. Today, Nokia is the first company chosen to oversee and develop the 6G research project Hexa-X.
Nokia said in a statement that it will serve as project leader for Hexa-X. The program is currently funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. The Finnish manufacturer explained that the aim of the project is to create use cases and scenarios.
In addition, Nokia will take on the task of developing basic technologies and defining a new architecture for an intelligent network structure that integrates the factors that enable basic 6G technology.
This program will also bring together key European industry stakeholders. Coexistence of stakeholders will encourage the development of 6G. We expect the active participation of network providers, operators, technology providers and European communications research institutions. Note that Ericsson, Orange, Telecom Italia and Telefónica are among the main stakeholders.
The project will start on January 1, 2021, with a planned duration of two and a half years. Nokia Bell Labs, Nokia’s research department, will play a major role in new network development. Bokia was an integral part of the development of 4G and 5G networks. Thus, the Finnish firm had become part of the commercialization of previous generation networks.
Nokia’s current burden is heavier. It will analyze the disadvantages offered by 5G and work to create a faster network. With 5G, everything seems to be rosy. However, 5G also has its own problems. Nokia will both compensate for these and strive for the speed and stability of 6G.
