Continuous Innovation of Wireless Networks from 5G to 6G

With the fast growing number of 5G networks and subscribers, 5G is driving the rapid growth of mobile data traffic with exciting new applications and enhanced user experiences. At the same time, 5G is slowly being adopted by vertical industries. Thousands of projects are being set up for testing and verifications, indicating the growing adaptations of 5G for industries in the near future. These activities are driving the continuous enhancements of the 5G network for new and expanded use cases. 5G-advanced is being standardised to meet the growing needs for the next few years. Meanwhile, industries and researchers are looking further for the next decade in both new services and breakthrough technologies. 

In this talk, a roadmap toward 6G will be discussed based on our learning from 5G deployment, society’s needs, and future technology trends. First, the latest progress of 5G commercial deployment will be briefly provided, followed by 5G-advanced. This will lead to the dicsussion of our 6G vision and future research directions including a preview of ITU-R related 6G activities.

AI-Assisted Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces (RIS) Wireless Networks

In this talk, we will present some recent results on the reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RIS) wireless network empowered by AI, in particular a deep-learning-based hybrid beamforming for RIS-empowered multi-hop teraherz communications, AI-assisted MAC, and intelligent spectrum learning with RIS. Such AI-based solution is of particular importance when the network involves multiple users, as the signals impinging upon an RIS can be contaminated by interfering signals which are usually dynamic and unknown. To address this issue, "learning" the properties of the surrounding spectral environment is a promising solution. Motivated by the convergence of artificial intelligence and spectrum sensing, we termed here as spectrum learning, the RIS controller is able to intelligently "think-and-decide" whether to reflect or not the incident signals.

Is the Shannon’s Capacity still valid for 6G and beyond

The electromagnetic waves are vector waves from the Maxwell’s Equations. The commonly adopted assumptions such as point-source for antennas, scale waves for radio-waves, real impedance for wave propagations and real values of power used in the Shannon’s capacity etc. might not be suitable for the scenarios of 6G and beyond. Modified Shannon’s capacity has been proposed. The results show that higher modulations will result in lower channel capacities.

Multi-Mode MIMO Communications Beyond Beamforming

Traditional wireless receivers operate in the far-field of the transmitter and the channels only involve a few angular directions. Under these conditions, the main role of antenna arrays is beamforming: to focus the transmitted signals in the strong angular directions and focus the reception correspondingly. This feature can be realised using classical phased-array technology.

Several research developments towards 6G will change the status quo. Firstly, the carrier frequency is increasing towards the THz range, which proportionally increases the far-field limit. Secondly, the antenna array dimensionalities are increasing, particularly at the base stations, which further extends the far-field limit. Thirdly, the network densification shortens the propagation distances and increases the number of impactful propagation paths. These three factors will fundamentally change how point-to-point MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) links must be designed in the future. We need to go beyond traditional phased-array-inspired far-field beamforming and consider the near-field focusing regime, where multiple parallel spatial layers can be transmitted using different spatial modes, even in line-of-sight scenarios with only a single angular path.

In this keynote, we will revisit the fundamentals of point-to-point MIMO communications and explore the new features that arise when operating in the radiative near-field. The relation between spatial modes, spherical wavefronts, and array geometries will be described and illustrated. The hardware requirements for exploiting spatial modes will be analysed. Are the spatial modes the next untapped signal dimensions that can sustain the capacity growth in future networks?

Localisation-of-Things in Beyond 5G Ecosystems

The availability of real-time high-accuracy location awareness is essential for current and future wireless applications, particularly those involving Internet-of-Things and 5G ecosystem. Reliable localisation and navigation of people, objects, and vehicles – Localisation-of-Things – is a critical component for a diverse set of applications including connected communities, smart environments, vehicle autonomy, asset tracking, medical services, military systems, and crowd sensing. The coming years will see the emergence of network localisation and navigation in challenging environments with sub-meter accuracy and minimal infrastructure requirements.

We will discuss the limitations of traditional positioning and move on to the key enablers for high-accuracy location awareness in 5G and beyond 5G ecosystems.

Deep Reinforcement Learning for Control of Large-scale Communication Infrastructures

Deep reinforcement learning (RL) techniques have been applied to many application domains. In communications networks, deep RL has been used to solve routing, service-placement and power-allocation problems in the software defined networks (SDN) as well as the software defined coalitions (SDC) developed in the DAIS ITA Program.

Kin will begin with a brief introduction to RL. For illustration purposes, he presents use of RL to train a smart policy for synchronisation of domain controllers in order to maximise performance gains in SDN. Results show that the RL policy significantly outperforms other algorithms for inter-domain routing tasks.

As shown in the above work, a challenging issue for deep RL is the huge state and action spaces, which increase model complexity and training time beyond practical feasibility. Kin will present a method to decouple actions from the state space for the value-function learning process and a relatively simple transition model is learned to determine the action that causes the associated state transition. Experimental results show that the state-action separable RL can greatly reduce training time without noticeable performance degradation. Other methods, including embedding and state-space decomposition techniques, to reduce training time will also be briefly discussed.

The talk will conclude by highlighting the open issues for use of RL for control of large-scaled communications networks.

Microwave and Millimeter-Wave Phase Change Material (PCM) Devices for Future Communications

Microwave and Millimeter-wave switches are key components in communication systems. They are used for signal routing and for realising a wide range of reconfigurable microwave and millimeter-wave devices.  Phase Change Materials (PCM) have been widely used in optical storage media and non-volatile memory device applications. Over the past recent years, there have been interest in exploiting the PCM materials such as germanium telluride (GeTe) and metal insulator transition materials such as vanadium oxides (VO2) for RF applications. The principle of operation of PCM devices is based on the ability of the material to transform from a high-resistivity state (amorphous phase) to a low-resistivity state (crystalline phase) and vice versa with the application of short duration pulses. Several orders of magnitude in resistivity change can be achieved by PCM technology allowing the realisation of highly miniature microwave and millimeter-wave switches. In addition to miniaturisation, GeTe based switches offer latching functionality and ease of monolithic integration with other RF circuits.

This talk will address recent developments in PCM switches and their applications to the realisation of switch matrices, phase shifters, attenuators and reconfigurable filters.

Toward Reliable and Scalable Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X)

Reliable and scalable wireless transmissions for Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) are technically challenging. Each vehicle, from driver-assisted to automated one, will generate a flood of information, up to thousands of times of that by a person. Vehicle density may change drastically over time and location. Emergency messages and real-time cooperative control messages have stringent delay constraints, while infotainment applications may tolerate a certain degree of latency. On a congested road, vehicles need to exchange information badly, only to find that services are not available due to scarcity of wireless spectrum. Considering the service requirements of heterogeneous V2X applications, service guarantee relies on an in-depth understanding of network performance and innovations in wireless resource management.

In this talk, we compare the performance of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) beacon broadcasting using random access-based (IEEE 802.11p) and resource allocation-based (C-V2X) protocols and introduce several enhancement strategies to mitigate packet collisions, recover from transmission errors, and support two-user non-orthogonal transmissions.

Biological Layer for 6G/B6G: Einstein, Reynolds, and Communications

Nano-molecular communication represents, in terms of its scale and energy consumption, a very powerful future communication system. Though nano communication can also be realised with electromagnetic waves, as in traditional communication systems, such means still pose several problems, such as the development of nano-scale actuator, antennas, or body absorption of tera-Hertz band frequency. Nano-molecular, or molecular communication, however, can utilise intra-body biomolecules that enable a great deal of various applications. As research into this field has been underway for less than a decade, it calls for fundamental intellectual challenges through preliminary studies.

In this talk, we will introduce the contributions of Einstein and Reynolds and explain how they contribute for communications, especially for a biological layer of 6G/B6G.
