It will be in the sectors of aerial and space communication, holographic beamforming, 3D connected intelligence in cybersecurity, microelectronics, and photonics (the science of light waves).
Jio hopes that its efforts will contribute to the development of 6G-enabled devices in defense, automotive, industrial machinery, consumer goods, and experiences like urban computing and autonomous traffic.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with Jio Estonia.” The University of Oulu focuses on wireless communications leading to 6G technologies as the head of the world’s first significant 6G research effort.
