Challenges and Risks Involved in Deploying 6G and NextGen Networks
Lead Editor’s Name
Dr A M Viswa Bharathy, Dr Basim Alhadidi
The book focuses on AI enabled NextGen (6G and beyond) networks on the whole. We need to be aware of the challenges waiting in NextGen networks, so that proper steps could be taken to either minimize or eliminate issues on 6G and NextGen networks. Incorporating AI in NextGen networks for Privacy and Security policies will serve the purpose. The four key components of NextGen networks will be, Real-Time Intelligent Edge, Distributed AI, Intelligent Radio, and 3D Intercoms. The book will focus on these key areas identifying the challenges and risks in each, therefore increasing the scope and viability of future potential applications such as Multi-sensory XR, Autonomous Wireless Robotics and Wireless Brain – Computer communication. As per current research the technologies involved are AI-based software, Molecular and Quantum Communications, Blockchain, TeraHertz (THz) technology, and the Visible Light Communication (VLC) technology. The feasibility of these and all 6G technologies in connection with NextGen networks, the strategies for design and deployment of 6G and beyond, identification of challenges and risks will form the core theme of the book.
