innovation for industry
RISE-6G Collaboration Will Develop Technology for Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces and Ensure Energy Efficiency, Localization Accuracy and Privacy
mission is to enable this disruptive new concept as a service for the wireless
environment by dynamically controlling wireless communication for local, brief and
energy-efficient, high-capacity communications, said Emilio Calvanese Strinati,
RISE-6G project coordinator and 6G future wireless research director at CEA-Leti.
The system also will ensure energy efficiency, localization accuracy and privacy
guarantees against eavesdroppers, while accommodating specific regulations on
spectrum use and restrained electromagnetic field (EMF) emissions.
To achieve its goals, the RISE-6G objectives are to:
Expected to be deployed by the end of this decade, B5G/6G networks will create the basis for human-centered smart societies and vertical industries. To accomplish this, advances will be expected to support the long-term, sustainable transformation of networks into a distributed smart-connectivity infrastructure, where new terminal types, e.g. mirrors, signs and walls, are embedded in the environment. In addition to responding to regulations and specific user-, service- and location-based needs, targeted innovations include an end-to-end, connectivity-computation system with high flexibility and dynamism that accommodates continuously evolving and heterogeneous applications.
By dynamically controlling RIS-enabled communication environments, mobile network users will gather in optimized "ultra-capacity/gigabit areas" with controlled energy consumption and circumscribed EMF to avoid interference from unconnected devices and to minimize their impact on the people around them.
RISE-6G will lend itself to a revolutionary flow of the current network paradigm by contributing with novel technologies and strategic business plans that will have a remarkable societal impact in the near future, Calvanese Strinati said.
The project is poised to actively participate in standardization bodies and bring its technically advanced vision into the planned industrial implementation. This will secure European technology leadership, supporting the creation of new European-conceived service and business opportunities in the B5G/6G global race.
Officially launched on Jan. 1, 2021, with a planned duration of three years, the RISE-6G project will be piloted by CEA-Leti. The consortium includes 13 partners from seven countries representing the academic, research and industrial sectors:
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
