Radio Access Network (RAN) Techniques for 6G

Last month I blogged about the UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the UK Spectrum Policy Forum (UK SPF) running a series of University-run workshops to showcase the current research projects having the best potential to address 6G wireless research priorities. The first of these, here, were led by the University of Bristol and it focussed on physical layer hardware technologies and architectures as well as new materials to enhance both spectrum and energy efficiency of next generation networks.

The second one was led by University of Surrey and focused on energy efficiency, spectrum efficiency and coverage. 

The slides and video from this workshop is available here.

The following topics were covered in this workshop:

  • Session 1-Radio Waves modelling
  • Session 2: New Physical layer Techniques
  • Session 3: New Frequency Bands and towards Tbps
  • Session 4: RAN
  • Session 5: Co-existence
  • Session 6: Enabling Techniques

Embedded below is a short video providing overview of workshop by Regius Professor Rahim Tafazolli, Head of Surrey’s Institute for Communication Systems (ICS)
