Decentralized AI-native 6G network management for resilience and sustainability

The expected growth and scale of 6G networks shall demand crafting new and smarter network management paradigms. Multiple stakeholders will jointly define the ecosystem, and this poses several administrative and technical challenges. Natively embedding AI-based cycles while delegating decisions throughout the network offers the required resilience and sustainability at scale. A consortium of four industrial partners (ERICSSON Spain, EVIDEN, Software Radio Systems and Telcaria) representing the 5G and beyond value chain and led by the CTTC (Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya) are investigating these challenges within the framework of the UNICO R+D project 6G DAWN.
