one6G Summit 2021

Discover the global 6G vision, key values, and technologies


The mobile communication system has become one of the fundamental infrastructures of today’s society. It does not only bring connectivity to individual persons but also incubates innovations that trigger the entire society’s digital transformation. After the global commercialization of 5G, 6G has begun its journey. Due to numerous global initiatives, nationally funded projects, and industrial and academic research programs, 6G is now being widely promoted across the entire globe.

Our society has deep-seated faith that 6G will support various vertical industry sectors (automotive, eHealth, smart manufacturing, smart cities, etc.) and digital economies to develop the essential technology components needed for 2030 while contributing to a fully connected and intelligent world. 6G goes a step beyond and addresses new use cases and performances, which cannot be met by 5G nor its evolution.

The first edition of the one6G Summit aims at establishing a platform that will address the latest 6G progress by presenting valuable viewpoints of policymakers and top experts from industry and academia. The event will shed light on some of the latest research on 6G enabling technologies, such as integrated sensing and communication, THz, AI, cloud computing, IIoT, etc.
