Highlights of the 6G White Paper on 6G Networking:

This white paper is one of the twelve new themed 6G White Papers led by the 6G Flagship program. It involved the participation of more than 50 experts and enthusiasts of future 6G technologies. In this white paper, we intend to shed light on advanced features relevant to networking that would shape the evolution beyond 5G, ultimately leading to the 6G mobile system.

Hereby, we study the advancements and implications introduced by the evolution of softwarization and service based architecture. We also overview the key technologies that constitute the pillars for the evolution towards 6G networking, considering the evolution toward a cloud native mobile communication system and the adoption of a new IP architecture that supports high precision services. In this white paper, we explore the different analytics that can be gained from the different segments involved in the delivery of a particular communication service. We also discuss the utility of high-precision end-to-end telemetry and cross-segment analytics.
