NEW DELHI: Indian Institute of Technology (IIT Kharagpur) and Ericsson will carry out joint research in 6G technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), edge compute and radio. As part of the collaboration, IIT Kharagpur and Ericssom signed two agreements, which will allow researchers from both organisations to collaborate towards developing novel AI and distributed compute technology towards 6G research.

AI and compute research is instrumental to Ericsson’s 6G networks as the compute offload needs to be managed dynamically at edge and the policies would primarily be driven by AI. These themes of research are well aligned with IIT Kharagpur and both organisations view this partnership as a way to push the boundaries of fundamental and applied research in the radio domain.

On the occasion, a symposium on radio and network research was organised at GS Sanyal School of Telecommunications (GSSST). Leaders and academicians from Ericsson Research and IIT Kharagpur participated to discuss the developments and advancements for the future of networks and communication.

Focus on 6G networks

IIT Kharagpur director Virendra Kumar Tewari said, “In the commitment towards Digital India and making India the hub of technological innovation, this collaboration with Ericsson will be effective for next-generation technology significantly. 6G networks integrated with artificial intelligence will enable AI-powered applications to run faster and more efficiently. In the 6G era, IIT Kharagpur aims to contribute to radio access technology and network, core network, RF and device technologies, VLSI design, neuromorphic signal processing, services and applications.”

Ericsson Research head Magnus Frodigh said, “This collaboration strengthens our research and development commitments in India and is pivotal to Radio, Compute and AI research. We are excited to partner with IIT Kharagpur and look forward to collaborative research in fundamental areas as well as translational research for our Future Network Platforms”. Dr Frodigh also presented Ericsson’s vision on 6G which aims to blend the physical and digital worlds enabling us to improve the quality of life by incorporating widespread Sensor-based communications between humans and machines through digital twins.
