5G Advanced - Next Gen Mobile Networks and Services - Day 25G Advanced - Next Gen Mobile Networks and Services - Day 2
Light Reading’s 5G Advanced Digital Symposium will investigate the state-of-the-art in mobile technology and the outlook for 5G networks from 2025 and beyond.
September 22, 2023
Date: Sep 21, 2023
Duration: 3h 15m
After almost 5 years of commercial service, there are hundreds of 5G networks and millions of cell sites live worldwide. To secure the next decade of 5G, and prepare for the introduction of 6G, the mobile network ecosystem is now working to develop 5G Advanced.
Session 1: AI/ML in 5G-Advanced
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are changing the way mobile networks are designed, built, and operated. By matching the vast quantities of network data with novel learning techniques, operators can take advantage of powerful AI/ML models to plan and optimize 5G networks. The 5G-Advanced study of AI/ML in the air interface will help define how this technology can be applied in mobile networks and prepare for an AI-native system in 6G.
Among the topics this session will address:
Data collection, model training, and model transfer
AI/ML for NG-RAN management, optimization, and energy efficiency
Distributed and federated AI/ML and the 5G edge
AI/ML in 5G core – e.g., to optimize policy and network slicing

Session 2: A Bridge to 6G: Giant Leap or Small Shuffle?
The 10-year “G cycle” is (seemingly) inexorable. With research underway across academia and industry, the race is on to identify the key technologies (and secure the associated intellectual property) that will combine to create 6G. This session investigates how the 6G vision is emerging and the practical steps towards defining requirements and creating a plan for standards development.
Among the topics, this session will address:
Identifying 6G solutions to real world problems
High performance and / or energy efficiency – can 6G really do both?
An AI-native communication system
Integrated sensing and communication
Spectrum issues for 6G
