ATIS Calls for 6G Collaboration

The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) announced a call to action and shared its vision for collaboration across government, academia and industry to promote U.S. leadership on the path to 6G.

ATIS said that the timeline for 6G development has already begun, because investments in 5G networks, devices and applications already point toward the future opportunities for 6G. Therefore, deliberate, collaborative steps and an aligned commitment between government and industry are necessary to ensure the U.S. maintains a competitive technology position in 5G and 6G networks in the future.

"COVID-19 has brought unprecedented economic and public health challenges, and it has also shone a spotlight on the critical role of communications networks in our daily lives, as the connective fabric between people," said Susan M. Miller, president and CEO, ATIS. "While innovation can be triggered in reaction to current market needs, technology leadership at a national level requires an early commitment and development that addresses U.S. needs as well as a common vision and set of objectives."

ATIS' call to action promotes a holistic approach, beginning with innovative research and development (R&D) that addresses U.S. needs, a commitment to standardization and full-scale commercialization. The result will be the introduction of 6G services and technologies that position the U.S. as the global leader for the next decade and beyond.
