The 5G/6G Vertical Users Workshops aim at establishing a collaborative event for strategic dialogue between vertical industries (automotive Industrial automation, health, media industry, security, public safety, energy), SDOs and 3GPP, with a view to exchange requirements, outline issues and obstacles impeding progress, and look at upcoming future standards development. These requirements are considered to be essential to unlock the potential of 5G/6G technologies, with the objective to enhance vertical industries.
The April 20 workshop gathered more than 250 attendees on “What will offer 6G to vertical industries?” After a presentation from Alexandros Kaloxylos on the global 5G/6G research picture, the speakers dug into 6G high-profile themes, by tackling long-term challenges and priorities that can be summarized as follows:
