ECO-eNET Team Presents at the 2024 EuCNC & 6G Summit

The 2024 EuCNC & 6G Summit, which merged the European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC) with the 6G Summit, recently took place, bringing together a wide array of experts and industry leaders in telecommunications. Sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society, the European Association for Signal Processing, and the European Association on Antennas and Propagation, the summit aimed to cover a broad spectrum of topics, from the deployment of 5G technologies to the exploration of 6G possibilities.

The 2024 EuCNC & 6G Summit, which merged the European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC) with the 6G Summit, recently took place, bringing together a wide array of experts and industry leaders in telecommunications. Sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society, the European Association for Signal Processing, and the European Association on Antennas and Propagation, the summit aimed to cover a broad spectrum of topics, from the deployment of 5G technologies to the exploration of 6G possibilities.

ECO-eNET team had the opportunity to present their work titled “Towards Efficient Confluent Edge Networks” at the “Elements for 6G Vision” session chaired by Seppo Yrjölä from Nokia & Centre for Wireless Communications, University of Oulu.

In their presentation, the ECO-eNET team proposed the development of mesh edge networks that promise to enhance energy efficiency, reliability, and reduce latency. These networks are intended to be controlled by AI-native orchestration that spans across mobile, fixed, and compute domains. They also discussed integrating multiple transmission technologies such as radio fixed wireless (RFW), free space optical (FSO), and switched flex grid wavelength division multiplexed (Flex-WDM) transport through optical-spectrum-as-a-service (OSaaS).

Their presentation highlighted not only the potential advancements in telecommunications but also brought to light the substantial challenges that lie ahead in evolving from conceptual frameworks to tangible, efficient networks.

ECO-eNET team also hosted a booth at the conference and presented posters throughout the event, engaging with a diverse range of experts from the field of telecommunications.
