Bharat 6G Alliance is an initiative of the Indian industry, academia, national research institutions and standards organizations

India’s Bharat 6G Alliance has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with 6G Smart Networks and Services Industry Association (6G-IA) and 6G Flagship-Oulu University to boost research activities in the 6G field.

The Bharat 6G Alliance is an initiative of the Indian industry, academia, national research institutions and standards organizations; its focus is on designing, developing and deploying technology for future 6G systems, through promotion of an ecosystem for research, design, development, field testing, security, certification and manufacturing of telecom solutions.

The Bharat 6G Alliance and the 6G-IA recently signed a MoU to explore collaboration opportunities on several areas including a “vision for 6G”, requirements for 6G, architecture and use cases, identification of common interests, building of consensus and collaboration to support development of globally harmonized standards for Beyond 5G and 6G and promoting cooperation among European and Indian R&D organizations and industries.

The entities noted that the work will encompass aligning research and development priorities that support a common 6G vision and creating secure and trusted telecommunications as well as resilient supply chains.

The 6G-IA carries out a wide range of activities in strategic areas including standardization, frequency spectrum, R&D projects, technology skills, collaboration with key vertical industry sectors, notably for the development of trials, and international cooperation.

Also, the 6G Flagship program, led by the University of Oulu in Finland, and the Bharat 6G Alliance have announced an agreement to foster collaborative research and development efforts on 6G wireless technologies. This strategic partnership marks a significant step towards aligning Finland’s and India’s 6G ambitions to accelerate the development of a resilient, secure, and globally interoperable 6G ecosystem.

The two organizations will work together to create a shared vision and roadmap for 6G, ensuring that their respective R&D efforts are complementary and synergistic. The collaboration will also explore opportunities to strengthen the supply chains for 6G-related components and equipment.

Last year, Bharat 6G Alliance and ATIS’ Next G Alliance (NGA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding to explore collaboration opportunities on 6G wireless technologies.
