The DESIRE6G project is an exciting research initiative aimed at improving mobile networks to meet the growing demands of the digital age. This project is funded by the European Commission’s Horizon Europe program and addresses the topic HORIZON-JU-SNS-2022-STREAM-B-01-01 – System Architecture. It involves a diverse group of 15 partners from 11 countries, including universities, technology SMEs and key industry players.
Over the past few decades, mobile communications have become an essential part of our daily lives, transforming into a fundamental infrastructure that supports digital demands from all industry sectors. However, the current 5G systems are expected to fall short in meeting the anticipated stringent performance requirements for the new generation of real-time mission-critical applications. This shortfall led to the creation of the DESIRE6G project, which aims to develop novel technologies that will provide faster, more reliable, and more energy-efficient connectivity than current 5G systems.
The primary goal of the DESIRE6G project is to design, develop, and demonstrate a new wireless communication system that will provide near real-time autonomic networking and support extreme ultra-reliable low-latency communication (eURLLC) application requirements. In simpler terms, DESIRE6G is working to create a new network that is even faster, more reliable, and efficient than current 5G networks to meet the demands of new applications.
To meet these objectives, DESIRE6G will employ a combination of innovative technologies such as terahertz (THz) communication, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning. These technologies will allow the project’s participants to design and test new hardware and software components that will form the basis of the new wireless communication system.
