A Theoretical Framework for the 6G Wireless Communication Standard Vision, Applications and Challenges
With the 5G standard being completely solidified and currently being rolled out in multiple countries with total commercial deployment being expected by 2022, focus has now shifted towards conceptualization and standardisation of Beyond 5G (B5G) and 6G wireless systems. Research has already begun in various countries on what to expect from the next generation of wireless communication which is being expected to be deployed early in the next decade. In this article a vision for the next generation of wireless communication is presented based on the trend in usage scenarios around the globe. Some of the promising technologies in 6G such as Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces, Smart terminals etc. are explained and the major challenges the next generation of wireless communication faces are also defined. The emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) as an inherent part of the 6G intelligent networks and the increased Virtualization of the system is also discussed.
