Intelligent Environments to Realize Communication in 6G Wireless Systems

Ian F. Akyildiz (Georgia Institute of Technology, USA)

Electromagnetic waves undergo multiple uncontrollable alterations as they propagate within a wireless environment. Free space path loss, signal absorption, as well as reflections, refractions, and diffractions caused by physical objects within the environment highly affect the performance of wireless communications. Currently, such effects are intractable to account for and are treated as probabilistic factors. This talk proposes a radically different approach, enabling deterministic, programmable control over the behavior of wireless environments. The key enabler is the so-called HyperSurface tile, a novel class of planar meta-materials that can interact with impinging electromagnetic waves in a controlled manner. The HyperSurface tiles can effectively re-engineer electromagnetic waves, including steering toward any desired direction, full absorption, polarization manipulation, and more. Multiple tiles are employed to coat objects such as walls, furniture, and overall, any objects in indoor and outdoor environments. An external software service calculates and deploys the optimal interaction types per tile to best fit the needs of communicating devices. Evaluation via simulations highlights the potential of the new concept for 6G wireless systems.

What does New IP Do and Why?

Richard Li (Future Networks)

2
The Internet has been very successful in our times. But it starts to show signs of its weakness, incapability and vulnerability in face of upcoming applications, industry verticals, and network infrastructural changes such as industrial control and manufacturing, driverless vehicles, holographic type communications, and ManyNets, which gives rise to New IP. This presentation talks about the weakness of the current Internet, lists some new capabilities and services that would be expected from the Internet infrastructure, outlines a framework for New IP, and shows why New IP would be able to support future applications. New IP is expected to get the Internet ready for the next wave of future applications and industry verticals.
