Nokia has announced that it will lead the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research’s KOMSENS-6G project. The project aims to drive global pre-standardisation activities from a German and European perspective, with a specific focus on the network as sensor technology.
Nokia will work closely with a consortium that includes partners from the industry, subject matter experts, start-ups, research institutes and distinguished universities in Germany. KOMSENS-6G is part of a broader German 6G initiative and has €14.9 million in funding, over three years. Networking with other projects and partners of the overall national initiative takes place via the central ‘6G Platform Germany’.
In the 6G era, sensing will be a key enabling technology towards the vision of bringing together the digital and physical worlds. The sensing service will be fully integrated into the wireless network for simultaneous operation with communication services. Nokia will play a leading role in researching technology solutions for front-end, baseband, RAN protocols, data processing and security to make the 6G vision a reality.
On completion of the three-year project, KOMSENS-6G aims to deliver an architecture for integrated sensing and communication, together with a demonstration of the combined service.Click below to share this article
