  • The Role of 5G in Limiting the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic [Mobile
    • Authors: Matthias Patzold;
      Pages: 6 - 12
      Abstract: Reports on the impact of 5G mobile communications in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Ericsson expects the global number of 5G subscriptions to exceed 190 million by the end of 2020 and 2.8 billion by the end of 2025. The forecast is included in the June 2020 edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report [1], along with projections for data traffic growth and regional 5G subscriptions. The report also takes a sharp look at the role of networks and digital infrastructure in keeping societies running and families connected during the COVID-19 pandemic. The spread of COVID-19 has prompted people around the world to change their daily lives and, in many cases, work or study from home. This has led to a rapid shift of network traffic from business to residential areas. The latest Ericsson Mobility Report shows that mobile and fixed networks are increasingly an even bigger part of critical national infrastructure.

  • Laying the Milestones for 6G Networks [From the Guest Editors]
    • Pages: 18 - 21
      Abstract: The articles in this special section focus on the evolution of automotive engineering that deploy 6G networks. The continuous evolution of network technology and the digitization of the economy are key drivers for defining the expected 6G networks. Academia and industry have made tremendous strides during the past few years to shift the networking paradigm from human-centric communication to machine-type communication, and those gains will eventually lead to everything-type communication. Such developments have already enabled 5G systems to support massive connectivity, multigigabit data rates, massive multipleinput/ multiple-output (MIMO), millimeter-wave (mm-wave) communication, nonorthogonal multiple access, multiuser access, edge computing, dense wavelength division multiplexing for transport networks, service-based architectures, network slicing, network function virtualization, network automation, and core network encryption. Moreover, service requests are now processed using various sets of performance metrics in intelligent and self-healing fashions. Scaling these types of automated networks requires paradigm changes in communication network management, where communication and computation must ultimately fuse. Overall, this will lead to orders of magnitude of improved user satisfaction, and it eventually will spin out new, smaller domains for local and efficient service provisioning (e.g., private networks).

      Abstract: In this article, we present our vision of the application scenarios, performance metrics, and potential key technologies of 6G wireless communication networks. We then comprehensively survey 6G wireless channel measurements, characteristics, and models for all frequency bands and all scenarios, focusing on millimeter-wave (mm-wave), terahertz, and optical wireless communication channels under all spectra; satellite, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), maritime, and underwater acoustic communication channels under global coverage scenarios; and high-speed train (HST), vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), ultra-massive multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO), orbital angular momentum (OAM), and industry Internet of Things (IoT) communication channels under full application scenarios. We also provide future research challenges of 6G channel measurements, a general standard 6G channel model framework, and models for intelligent reflection surface (IRS)-based 6G technologies and artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled channel measurements and models.

  • Ultramassive MIMO Systems at Terahertz Bands: Prospects and Challenges
    • Pages: 33 - 42
      Abstract: Terahertz (THz)-band communications are currently being celebrated as a key technology that could fulfill the increasing demands for wireless data traffic in 6G wireless communications. Many challenges, such as high propagation losses and power limitations, which result in short communication distances, have yet to be addressed for this technology to be realized. Ultramassive multiple-input, multiple-output (UMMIMO) antenna systems have emerged as practical means for combatting this distance problem, thereby increasing system capacity. Toward that end, graphene-based nanoantennas have recently been proposed, as they can be individually tuned and collectively controlled in compact UM-MIMO array-of-subarrays (AoSA) architectures. In this article, we present a holistic overview of THz UM-MIMO systems. We assess recent advancements in transceiver design and channel modeling and discuss the major challenges and shortcomings of such designs by deriving the relationships among communication range, array dimensions, and system performance. We further highlight several research advances that could enhance resource allocation at the THz band, including waveform designs, multicarrier configurations, and spatial modulations (SMs). Based on this discussion, we highlight prospective use cases that can bring THz UM-MIMO into reality in the context of sensing, data centers, cell-free systems, and mid-range wireless communications.

  • Massively Distributed Antenna Systems With Nonideal Optical Fiber
           Fronthauls: A Promising Technology for 6G Wireless Communication Systems
    • Pages: 43 - 51
      Abstract: Employing massively distributed antennas brings radio access points (RAPs) closer to users, enabling aggressive spectrum reuse that can bridge gaps between the scarce spectrum resource and extremely high connection densities in future wireless systems. Examples include the cloud radio access network (C-RAN), ultradense network (UDN), and cell-free massive multiple-input, multiple-output (CF-mMIMO) systems. These systems are usually designed in the form of fiber wireless communications (FWC), where distributed antennas or RAPs are connected to a central unit (CU) through optical fronthauls. A large number of densely deployed antennas or RAPs require an extensive infrastructure of optical fronthauls. Consequently, the cost, complexity, and power consumption of the network of optical fronthauls may dominate the performance of the entire system. This article provides an overview and outlook on the architecture, modeling, design, and performance of massively distributed antenna systems (DAS) with nonideal optical fronthauls. Complex interactions between optical fronthauls and wireless access links require optimum designs across the optical and wireless domains by jointly exploiting their unique characteristics. It is demonstrated that systems with analog radio-frequency-overfiber (RFoF) links outperform their baseband-overfiber (BBoF) or intermediate-frequency-overfiber (IFoF) counterparts for systems with shorte fiber length and more RAPs, which are all desired properties for future wireless communication systems.

  • Radio Localization and Mapping With Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces:
           Challenges, Opportunities, and Research Directions
    • Pages: 52 - 61
      Abstract: 5G radio for millimeter-wave (mm-wave) and beyond5G concepts at 0.1-1 THz can exploit angle and delay measurements for localization through an increased bandwidth and large antenna arrays, but they are limited in terms of blockage caused by obstacles. Reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RISs) are seen as a transformative technology that can control the physical propagation environment in which they are embedded by passively reflecting radio waves in preferred directions and actively sensing this environment in receive and transmit modes. While such RISs have mainly been intended for communication purposes, they can provide great benefits in terms of performance, energy consumption, and cost for localization and mapping. These benefits as well as associated challenges are the main topics of this article.

      Abstract: In this article, we introduce Wireless 2.0, the future generation of wireless communication networks, in which the radio environment becomes controllable and intelligent by leveraging the emerging technologies of reconfigurable metasurfaces (RMSs) and artificial intelligence (AI). In particular, we emphasize AI-based computational methods and commence with an overview of the concept of intelligent radio environments (IREs) based on RMSs. Then, we elaborate on data management aspects, the requirements of supervised learning by examples, and the paradigm of reinforcement learning to learn by acting. Finally, we highlight numerous open challenges and research directions.

  • Topology Optimization for 6G Networks: A Network Information-Theoretic
    • Pages: 83 - 92
      Abstract: The classical approach of avoiding or ignoring interference in wireless networks cannot accommodate the ambitious quality-of-service (QoS) demands of ultradense cellular networks (CNs). However, recent ground-breaking information-theoretic advances have changed our perception of interference from that of a foe to a friend. This article aims to shed light on harnessing the benefits of integrating modern interference management (IM) schemes into future CNs. To this end, we envision a hybrid multiple-access (HMA) scheme that decomposes the network into subtopologies of potential IM schemes for more efficient utilization of network resources. Preliminary results show that an HMA scheme can multiply nonorthogonal multiple-access (NOMA) performance, especially under dense user deployment.

  • Visible Light Communication in 6G: Advances, Challenges, and Prospects
    • Pages: 93 - 102
      Abstract: 6G networks are expected to provide extremely high capacity and satisfy emerging applications, but current frequency bands may not be sufficient. Moreover, 6G will provide superior coverage by integrating space/air/underwater networks with terrestrial networks, given that traditional wireless communications are not able to provide high-speed data rates for nonterrestrial networks. Visible light communication (VLC) is a high-speed communication technique with an unlicensed frequency range of 400-800 THz and can be adopted as an alternative approach to solving these problems. In this article, we present the prospects and challenges of VLC in 6G in conjunction with its advances in high-speed transmissions. Recent hot research interests, including new materials and devices, advanced modulation, underwater VLC (UVLC), and signal processing based on machine learning, are also discussed. It is envisaged that VLC will become an indispensable part of 6G given its high-speed transmission advantages and will cooperate with other communication methods to benefit our daily lives.

  • Aerial Base Station Deployment in 6G Cellular Networks Using Tethered
           Drones: The Mobility and Endurance Tradeoff
    • Pages: 103 - 111
      Abstract: Airborne base stations (BSs) (carried by drones) have a great potential to enhance the coverage and capacity of 6G cellular networks. However, one of the main challenges facing the deployment of airborne BSs is the limited available energy at the drone, which curtails the flight time. In fact, most current unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can only operate for a maximum of 1 h. The need to frequently visit the ground station (GS) to recharge limits the performance of the UAV-enabled cellular network and leaves the UAV's coverage area temporarily out of service. In this article, we propose a UAV-enabled cellular network setup based on tethered UAVs (tUAVs). In the proposed setup, the tUAV is connected to a GS through a tether, which provides the tUAV with both energy and data. This enables a flight that can last for days. We describe in detail the components of the proposed system. Furthermore, we list the main advantages of a tUAV-enabled cellular network compared to typical untethered UAVs (uUAVs). Next, we discuss the potential applications and use cases for tUAVs. We also provide Monte Carlo simulations to compare the performance of tUAVs and uUAVs in terms of coverage probability. For instance, for a uUAV that is available 70% of the time (while unavailable because of charging or changing the battery 30% of the time), the simulation results show that tUAVs with a 120-m tether length can provide up to a 30% increase in coverage probability compared to uUAVs. Finally, we discuss the challenges, design considerations, and future research directions to realize the proposed setup.

  • Trustworthy Deep Learning in 6G-Enabled Mass Autonomy: From Concept to
           Quality-of-Trust Key Performance Indicators
    • Pages: 112 - 121
      Abstract: Mass autonomy promises to revolutionize a wide range of engineering, service, and mobility industries. Coordinating complex communication among hyperdense autonomous agents requires new artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled orchestration of wireless communication services beyond 5G and 6G mobile networks. In particular, safety and mission-critical tasks will legally require both transparent AI decision processes and quantifiable quality-of-trust (QoT) metrics for a range of human end users (consumer, engineer, and legal). We outline the concept of trustworthy autonomy for 6G, including essential elements such as how explainable AI (XAI) can generate the qualitative and quantitative modalities of trust. We also provide XAI test protocols for integration with radio resource management and associated key performance indicators (KPIs) for trust. The research directions proposed will enable researchers to start testing existing AI optimization algorithms and develop new ones with the view that trust and transparency should be built in from the design through the testing phase.

  • Machine Learning for 6G Wireless Networks: Carrying Forward Enhanced
           Bandwidth, Massive Access, and Ultrareliable/Low-Latency Service
    • Pages: 122 - 134
      Abstract: To satisfy the expected plethora of demanding services, the future generation of wireless networks (6G) has been mandated as a revolutionary paradigm to carry forward the capacities of enhanced broadband, massive access, and ultrareliable and lowlatency service in 5G wireless networks to a more powerful and intelligent level. Recently, the structure of 6G networks has tended to be extremely heterogeneous, densely deployed, and dynamic. Combined with tight quality of service (QoS), such complex architecture will result in the untenability of legacy network operation routines. In response, artificial intelligence (AI), especially machine learning (ML), is emerging as a fundamental solution to realize fully intelligent network orchestration and management. By learning from uncertain and dynamic environments, AI-/ML-enabled channel estimation and spectrum management will open up opportunities for bringing the excellent performance of ultrabroadband techniques, such as terahertz communications, into full play. Additionally, challenges brought by ultramassive access with respect to energy and security can be mitigated by applying AI-/ML-based approaches. Moreover, intelligent mobility management and resource allocation will guarantee the ultrareliability and low latency of services. Concerning these issues, this article introduces and surveys some state-of-the-art techniques based on AI/ML and their applications in 6G to support ultrabroadband, ultramassive access, and ultrareliable and lowlatency services.

  • Peculiar Times Being Used to Analyze and Plan Ahead [Connected and
           Autonomous Vehicles]
    • Authors: Elisabeth Uhlemann;
      Pages: 135 - 138
      Abstract: Reports on trends and future market developments predicted for connected and autonomous vehicles. The web pilot aims to provide an online, public-facing platform for sharing automated driving system testing activities. When collecting news for this column, the author noticed a distinct absence of press releases announcing new products and services, partnerships, and field trials. Instead, already-collected data are being analyzed and annotated. Strategic plans and standards are being written, certification is being requested, and websites collecting planned activities are being launched. A few examples of practical development and collaboration can be found, but these are all anticipated to start or to be launched, and some collaborations have, instead, ended or, at least, been put on hold. The vehicle industry has paused and is using the time to plan ahead. In the meantime, smart connected things help out by, e.g., guarding prisons and sanitizing airports.

      Abstract: This article reports on trends in automotive sales and electronics.Recent economic indicators show a decrease in passenger vehicle sales of nearly 7% in July compared to the previous year, despite some countries showing variable signs of recovery after the COVID-19 lock-down.Sales in the United States contin-ue to fall because of the pandemic's prolonged impact on the economy. The volume of passenger vehicle sales in July, although higher than in June, declined almost 19% com-pared to the year-earlier period.As COVID-19 continues to spread in ma-jor U.S. states, including California,Texas, and Florida, people are expe-riencing less traffic, and passenger vehicle sales face strong headwinds.The market is being stimulated by new concepts, such as neighborhood EVs (a U.S. designation for battery EVs that are usually built to have a top speed of 40 km/h and a maximum loaded weight of 1,400 kg), battery EVs, and gasoline and hydrogen fuel cell hybrids. The July results repre-sent an increase of 20% for this mar-ket segment, to nearly 98,000 units.

      Abstract: Reports on IEEE Standards development in the gaming industry. To address these issues while guaranteeing interoperability and compatibility for global gaming services, two recently established IEEE standard projects, IEEE P2861 and IEEE P2861.1, involve different stakeholders including game developers, game publishers, network vendors, and device vendors in the online gaming ecosystem. IEEE P2861, Standard for Mobile Gaming Performance Evaluation and Optimization, is designed to improve the experience of gamers by resolving tradeoffs between high demands from game applications and resource limitations of mobile devices. It aims at defining criteria and mechanisms to optimize the performance of game applications and devices, along with evaluation methods for game fluency and the optimization effect. This standards project also defines the classifications of gaming scenarios and interfaces between a game application and a device.
