China's IMT-2030 (6G) Promotion Group Releases 6G Whitepaper

Last month, China's IMT-2030 (6G) Promotion Group officially released the white paper on "6G Vision and Candidate Technologies ". This white paper summarizes the current study results of the IMT-2030(6G) promotion group, covering 6G vision, driving forces of 6G development, candidate use cases of 6G, ten candidate 6G technologies, and expressed some thoughts on the 6G development.

The eight Use Cases highlighted are:

  1. Immersive Cloud XR
  2. Holographic Communications
  3. Sensory Interconnection
  4. Intelligent Interaction
  5. Communication for Sensing
  6. Proliferation of Intelligence
  7. Digital Twins
  8. Global Seamless Coverage

The 10 Candidate 6G Technologies highlighted are:
