Book contribution: Towards sustainable trustworthy 6G

10 July, 2023

The rapid global deployment of 5G networks has set the stage for the next technological leap: the development of the sixth-generation (6G) wireless communication system. As the ICT industry and research communities intensify their efforts towards envisioning the future of 6G, the book “Towards Sustainable and Trustworthy 6G: Challenges, Enablers, and Architectural Design” serves as a valuable resource. Led by the 5G PPP Architecture Working Group (WG) and the Hexa-X project, this book explores the fundamental challenges, enabling technologies, and architectural trends that will shape the forthcoming 6G era.

The REINDEER project has made noteworthy contributions to the book, enriching its content with insights from their research. The following REINDEER project members have authored specific chapters:

  • Chapter 2: Architecture Landscape
    Pål Frenger (EAB)
  • Chapter 3: Towards Versatile Access Networks
    Vida Ranjbar (KU Leuven)
  • Chapter 4: Towards Joint Communications and Sensing
    Liesbet Van der Perre (KU Leuven), Thomas Wilding (TU Graz)
  • Chapter 6: Towards Sustainable Networks
    Benjamin Deutschmann (TU Graz), Liesbet Van der Perre (KU Leuven), Klaus Witrisal (TU Graz), Thomas Wilding (TU Graz)

Conclusion: The book “Towards Sustainable and Trustworthy 6G: Challenges, Enablers, and Architectural Design” offers a comprehensive overview of the upcoming 6G technologies and the path towards realizing a connected, intelligent, and sustainable world. With contributions from the REINDEER project, the book incorporates cutting-edge research and insights, enhancing the academic community’s understanding of the challenges and opportunities in the 6G landscape. By combining the efforts of the 5G PPP Architecture WG, the Hexa-X project, and the REINDEER project, this book lays a solid foundation for future research and development in the European Union towards 6G systems.
