WS11: Intelligent 6G Architecture: towards network simplicity and autonomy

WS11: Intelligent 6G Architecture: towards network simplicity and autonomy

With the evolution and integration of AI, big data, cloud computing, edge computing and other technologies, the future network will gradually move towards to support all kinds of applications and provide the ultimate experience. This requires the technologies converged innovations at the network architecture level. However, the complexity of the network architecture may lead to high operating expense, which in turn requires a lite architecture with autonomous operation and maintenance capabilities. Therefore, facing the needs of 6G development, the next generation network will face to the great challenge to find the balance between the convergence of new technologies and the lean, intelligent and automated architecture.
