Identification and evaluation of 6G physical layer technology components

Posted on the 21st December 2021

Internship 6 months

Ref. CCC072021

Overall context

Set up in the middle of the scientific campus of Rennes, the capital of Brittany, the French branch of Mitsubishi Electric R&D Centre Europe provides advanced R&D support to the Japanese R&D centers and to the business units of Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.

Within the Communications and Information Systems division, our Wireless Communication Systems team focuses its research interests on wireless communications for factory automation, automotive, railway, satellite, and access network fields.

We combine long-term research with applied research resulting in contributions in international standards and development of proprietary technologies for in-house products.

Internship subject

5G technologies are nowadays commercially available all over the world. In international standardization forums such as 3GPP, the standardization of 5G-Advanced already started and standardization of 6G technologies is foreseen at the horizon 2026-2028, targeting 6G commercially available products before 2030.

6G pre-standardization work is currently ongoing in different R&D forums across the world.

Recent advances on technologies such as Orbital Angular Momentum, integrated communication, sensing and positioning or AI/ML assisted air interface open the way to exploring the Terahertz spectrum and aim achieving 6G new key performance indicators.

The purpose of the internship is to identify key 6G physical layer technology components, explore their advantages and limitations, and evaluate their pertinence in a 6G context.
