Position Paper – Our view on the Evolution of 5G towards 6G


Executive Summary

5G-ACIA will continue to focus on enabling the full potential of 5G in connected industries and automation, in particular in the manufacturing and process industries. At the same time, we want to ensure that the needs and requirements of the industrial automation sector are considered beyond the year 2030 (e.g. in the context of beyond 5G). Therefore, 5G-ACIA will continue to bring forward requirements to the relevant standardization bodies in order to ensure the long-term success of mobile communications in the industrial domain.
5G networks have just recently started to be deployed, hence only initial thoughts can be given on the industrial requirements that need to be supported in the next decade.
