The 6G-XR project proudly showcased its innovations at the EuCNC & 6G Summit held from June 3-6, 2024, at the Flanders Meeting & Convention Center in Antwerp, Belgium. This conference, renowned for bringing together experts and cutting-edge research in telecommunications, provided an invaluable platform for 6G-XR to highlight its advancements and foster collaborations.

At the event, 6G-XR presented a Co-Creative Cyber Studio utilizing a sliced 5G O-RAN network. This impressive demonstration was a collaborative effort, combining the expertise of the University of Oulu’s 6G Flagship and three standout projects from the 6G-XR Open Call 1: 6G-Slice (by Allbesmart), Faladin (by Finwe), and BANQ (by Kaitotek). The interactive and collaborative display featured state-of-the-art and beyond hardware and software, showcasing a multi-sliced 5G network equipped with a RAN intelligent controller, spatial computing and virtual reality headsets, and a completely passive professional network measurement system.

Moreover, Jussi Haapola represented the 6G-XR project at the “Strengthening EU-US Cooperation in Experimental Infrastructures Towards 6G” workshop, underscoring the project’s commitment to international collaboration and innovation.

Attending the EuCNC & 6G Summit has greatly benefited the 6G-XR project by providing a stage to demonstrate its groundbreaking work, engage with industry leaders, and forge new partnerships essential for driving the future of 6G technology.
