Don’t Miss NIST’s 6G Core Networks Workshop, September 12, 2023

And Don’t Miss NIST’s 6G Core Networks Workshop, September 12, 2023

On September 12, 2023, NIST will conduct its 6G Core Networks Workshop, online and onsite at the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence in Rockville, Maryland.

The workshop’s goal is to discuss the transition from the 5G to 6G ecosystem. This transition poses great challenges while leading to profound economic, scientific and social changes. It is important to identify challenges, develop more stringent key performance indicators, and find solutions, and create new standards as needed.

Specifically, the workshop will address:

  • Evolving 5G service-based architectures and technologies (e.g., network slicing), to meet 6G needs
  • Managing the growing number of users, devices, and network traffic
  • 6G core network architectures and automation
  • Enabling end-to-end service and quality assurance
  • The roles of AI in 6G core networks and end-to-end service enablement
  • Managing differentiated and even customized network services
  • Cloud and edge computing for 6G
  • How opensource and open testbeds can help advance 6G
  • Making 6G systems resilient

The workshop’s morning sessions will focus on the current landscape, gaps, and challenges. Afternoon sessions will consist of panel discussion on selected topics. More information on the workshop and registration are available online.
