Reconfigurable Intelligent Sustainable Environments for 6G Wireless Networks

Objective

Visions and plans on forthcoming B5G/6G networks aim to provide flexible connect-compute technologies to support future innovative services and uses cases. Considering the 2030 horizon, B5G/6G networks need to create the basis for human-centred smart societies and vertical industries. To this end, innovation is expected to: (a) support the long-term sustainable transformation of networks into a distributed smart connectivity infrastructure, where new terminal types are embedded in the environment; (b) provide the end-to-end connectivity-computation system with high flexibility and dynamism that accommodates future ever-evolving and heterogeneous applications, regulations and specific user-/service-/location-based needs.
RISE-6G vision builds on the latest advancements on Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces (RIS) technology for radio wave propagation control, in order to achieve intelligent, sustainable and dynamically programmable wireless environments that go well beyond the 5G capabilities developed under 3G PPP release 16.
RISE-6G objectives are to (i) define novel network architectures and operation strategies incorporating multiple RISs; (ii) characterize its fundamental limits capitalizing on proposed realistic and validated radio wave propagation models; (iii) devise solutions to enable online trade between high-capacity connectivity, Energy Efficiency, EMF exposure, and localization accuracy based on dynamically programmable wireless propagation environments, for legislation and regulation compliant spectrum use, data protection, and EMF emission; and (iv) prototype-benchmark proposed innovation via two complementary trials with verticals.
RISE-6G project is poised to actively participate in standardization bodies and bring its technically advanced vision into the planned industrial exploitation. This will secure the European technology leadership, supporting the creation of new European-conceived service and business opportunities in the B5G/6G global race
