New Reports on Sustainable 6G Connectivity and AI-Native Wireless Networks Map the 6G Future

The Next G Alliance (NGA) has released two new reports focusing on sustainable 6G connectivity and AI-native wireless networks, both of which are integral to the NGA’s mission. Sustainable 6G Connectivity: A Powerful Means of Doing Good  presents a holistic approach towards achieving a sustainable 6G system, covering the full environmental impact of the information and communications technology (ICT) sector. The report outlines a path towards a sustainable 6G system that spans the entire life cycle of ICT technologies. AI-Native Wireless Networks surveys the research and technology directions required to make the vision of an AI-native wireless network a reality, which is a major feature of the next generation wireless network. These white papers are part of a series of reports on the NGA’s Six Audacious Goals, which aim to prioritize North America’s contribution and leadership in 6G-related global standards, deployments, products, operations, and services.

6G Market Development: A North American Perspective

In 6G Market Development: A North American Perspective, the Next G Alliance outlines the strategic importance of 6G and the imperatives that will shape North America’s competitiveness, economy and global leadership.

It presents the context for NGA’s work and priorities, explaining how 6G is different compared to prior generations. It also provides insights into the 6G market, including prospects that will excite society and boost the digital economy.

Next G Alliance Releases Roadmap to 6G

Developed by ATIS’ Next G Alliance, the Roadmap to 6G presents a 6G vision for North America. Watch the  Roadmap launch event for insights from key experts on the region’s wireless future. Speakers include the Next G Alliance leadership, developers of the Roadmap to 6G.

Next G Alliance Research Priorities

Public and private sector research coordinated with a vision of the future 6G marketplace is critical to achieving North American global leadership throughout the 6G development lifecycle. The Next G Alliance’s research priorities will act as a collective compass for North America’s 6G innovation platforms as well as the region’s technology landscape.
