Open RAN World

26 April 2023, Hotel Palace Berlin

Will open RAN become mainstream in 6G?

6G Summit was co-located with Open RAN World 2023 event

Future-proofing telecom innovation, environmental and social contribution with the next-generation of connectivity

Co-located with Open RAN World on 26 April 2023, the 6G Summit brings together global telcos, regulators, industry bodies and distinguished academia to discuss 6G business, policy and technology.

The industry can already not wait for 6G and what ubiquitous connectivity will enable for the society, economy and the environment. Globally, governments are accelerating their 6G investments, pumping significant funds in their national ecosystems in a bid to win the race to 6G. And while the impact of the next generation of networks cannot be understated, we are at early, critical days of defining the standards, spectrum, applications and technology evolution roadmap.

Key themes

Global 6G telco perspectives and projects

Perspectives on 6G spectrum

Network architecture developments for 6G

Expectations for 6G applications

6G’s role in responding to societal, economic and environmental requirements

Models for 6G public private partnerships

The role of non-terrestrial networks in 6G

Will open RAN become mainstream in 6G?

Why 6G? Why now?

Research is well underway from telcos, research institutes and industry bodies in 6G so now is the time to connect and exchange learnings and vision with international thought-leaders

Governments globally have accelerated their investments in 6G, in an effort to achieve 6G ‘firsts’

6G applications are still being explored, looking for ways to commercialise the technology as well as benefit the society, economy and environment

Standards have yet to be defined and the industry is in active conversations to shape what 6G network architecture will look like

Regulators, and the industry, are still debating what spectrum bands 6G will require so it’s prime time to hear and influence the global approaches

Open RAN, for many the most – currently –transformative network tech, is argued to only become mainstream when 6G is rolled out. Join us as we question industry experts on the matter
