EUCNC and 6G Summit 2023

Pioneering research

Welcome to our booth and speaker slots!

Jun 06, 2023 09:00
to Jun 09, 2023 14:00 (CEST Standard Time)
The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre (Mässans Gata/Korsvägen, 412 94 Göteborg)

EUCNC focuses on all aspects of telecommunications ranging from 5G deployment and mobile IoT to 6G exploration and future communications systems and networks, including experimentation and testbeds, and applications and services. Ericsson is the Diamond patron and present with a 20 sqm booth, keynote speaker and many exciting panels and sessions.

Thank you for joining us at the 2023 EuCNC & 6G Summit in Gothenburg! We are excited to co-host this year’s conference, which combines two of Europe’s premier events in communication networks: the European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC) and the 6G Summit.

At the EuCNC & 6G Summit, we advocate for global dialogue and collaboration to develop mobile communications standards. The road to 6G extends beyond mobile communications technology and spans the entire value chain, from components and devices to AI, Cloud, and security. The 6G era will be driven by four important factors: trustworthy systems, sustainability, accelerated automation and digitalisation, and limitless connectivity. Each generation of mobile communications technology has moved beyond the sole purpose of increasing connectivity to prioritising the creation of essential infrastructure, energy efficiency, and positive societal impact. Our goal is to design mobile communications technology and systems that prioritise the well-being of both humanity and the planet.

We hope you enjoy the conference and your stay in Gothenburg. Let’s work together to shape the future of our connected world!

Zero-energy devices in 6G networks

Imagine a future where batteries never have to be recharged or replaced. Sound too good to be true? Perhaps not.

Connecting countless devices wirelessly without external power supplies is an integral key of our 6G vision of connecting a cyber-physical world. With Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston we are exploring radio hardware technology components to realize this. In the work MIT have used Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) as a material to realize an ultra-efficient radio energy harvester in combination with a silicon low energy radio transceiver based on backscattered communication. We have connected the zero energy device to more than thousand pressure sensors integrated into a knitted sweater to make predictions of the current activities of the bearer of the clothes.

5G Non-Terrestrial Networks

Integration of non-terrestrial and terrestrial (cellular) networks is a potential solution for CSP to provide mobile coverage everywhere. 5G connectivity via Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites is expected to include coverage in extreme geographies or remote areas where terrestrial coverage is absent.

Ericsson Holographic Communication enabled by 5G APIs

Holographic communication is cutting edge technology powered by edge and cloud computing, which enables real-time 3D experiences with consumer grade devices on today’s 5G network pioneered by Ericsson.

Holographic Communication enables several use-cases, such as getting in touch with loved ones, e-health, or influencers.

The demo shows a live holographic calling experience, showcasing a hologram of a person represented on an augmented reality device.

Digital twin of 6G network

We show a demo of a prototype 6G RAN system, consisting of a 6G Baseband stack and a Digital Twin of the radios and the propagation environment.

You will see a 3D model of an outdoor environment in Kista, Sweden. The position of the device (represented by a walking person) is changed. While walking around in the 3D world, the system shows changes in KPIs (throughput, latency, BLER).

The demo is realized by connecting the 6G baseband part of Ericsson’s 6G testbed to a digital representation (Digital Twin) of the radio and the propagation environment. The Digital Twin acts as a very accurate channel emulator, which is a true representation of the specific environment (in this case a part of Kista). Beyond the immediate take-away (live experience of a 6G RAN), there are a number of deeper take-aways: A digital twin is a powerful tool for fast turnarounds in RAN design, e.g. testing and optimizing a new feature, including (pre-)training of AI-based algorithms. When combined with a 3D model of a customer network, it can be used for virtual feature introduction and comparison.

Multi-robot exploration

Find this demo in the Lobby area of Svenska mässan.

Experience collaborative robots mapping their surroundings over a wireless network. 

Connected intelligent machines that collaborate to achieve a common goal is a key use case for the next generation mobile networks. In this demo, multiple small and scalable robots are collaborating through a connected network to explore and map an unknown environment. The robots are equipped with simple sensors and rely on a fast and reliable ubiquitous connection to perform their task collaboratively, where the decision making and calculations are done remotely. Multiple robots provide higher fault tolerance, and with a centralized control scheme all calculations and processing can be outsourced to cloud computing to enable a cheap and scalable system.
