ATIS’ Next G Alliance and the 5G Forum signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to further their mutual goals of advancing cooperation in next-generation mobile communications.

Launched by the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS), the Next G Alliance is an initiative to advance North American wireless technology leadership over the next decade through private-sector-led efforts with the initial focus on 6G. The 5G Forum Korea is a non-profit organization with the aim of globally leading and promoting 5G toward the year 2020 and further evolution of 5G including 6G around year 2030.

“The Next G Alliance is developing the ‘Next G Alliance Report: Roadmap to 6G,’” said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller. “Taking a holistic view of the 6G marketplace and the broader environment, the road map will establish the North American vision for 6G and beyond. Geared toward the eventual commercialization of 6G, it will address the full lifecycle of research, standardization, development and manufacturing and will be a major contribution toward shaping the networks of the future. Cooperation between the Next G Alliance and the 5G Forum will advance both organizations’ objectives in the development of the future global 6G mobile wireless ecosystem.”

The MoU, signed by Miller, and Dr. Kim, Yihan Chairman, 5G Forum, defines how the two organizations will exchange information on missions, goals and work activities, and explore areas of future cooperation. When the Next G Alliance completes the National 6G Roadmap in early 2022, collaboration may also include exchange of information regarding 6G technology trends, discussion on developing a 6G road map, collaboration on global standardization and spectrum, analysis of socioeconomic aspects of 6G, and other areas as agreed between the two organizations regarding 6G promotion.

“Since 2013, the 5G Forum has committed to 5G and 5G-Advanced promotion in both the private and public sectors over the entire cycle of 5th generation mobile communication,” said Kim. “One of our key goals is to leverage the experience and resources achieved in 5G promotion for use in 6G and beyond. The 5G Forum has already started engaging in 6G pre-standardization activities such as the 6G Vision and the technical trends report. In 2022, we are focusing our mission more on 6G and beyond. Our intent is that the MoU between the 5G Forum and the Next G Alliance will be the platform that mobile stakeholders in the private and public sectors of both countries use for collaboration in 6G promotion.”
