BARCELONA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–WORLD MOBILE CONGRESS 2022 — VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), a leading enterprise software innovator, today unveiled its vision Automation of life. The vision is underpinned by the fusion of cloud, network and AI technologies and a belief system structured around fairness, sustainability and trust. To chart a successful path to 6G, the evolution of these underlying technologies must align with the evolutionary cycle of human behavior, society and technology, as they influence each other to form a continuum of evolution.
“This continuum of evolution – the way people change, technology evolves and society responds – is how VMware aims to shape its path to 6G – by promoting technologies centered on human needs, for example, which improve and save lives, but more importantly, enable humans to thrive in and with technology the way people want – not the way technology dictates,” said Kaniz Mahdi, Vice President of the distributed edge, VMware.”We are thrilled to support Professor Fitzek and Professor Falko in their mission to shape the future of wireless with human-centric technologies.”
Led by Professor Frank Fitzek of TU Dresden, the Center for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop (CeTI) and the 6G-life hub are working to enable humans to interact in near real-time with cyber -physical. systems in the physical or digital world on smart communication networks (5G and beyond). Allowing this type of interaction will promote equitable access to remote environments for people of different gender, age, cultural background, or physical limitations. It also has the potential to democratize access to skills and expertise as well as its cutting-edge research in sustainability, security, resilience and latency.
“We are excited to work with VMware to advance research and innovations that play an important role in the path to 6G,” said Frank Fitzek, Professor and Director of the Deutsche Telekom Chair of Communication Networks at TU Dresden. . “We launched 6G-life to provide new approaches to durability, security, resiliency and latency. This collaboration will help us advance our cutting-edge work in specific areas such as Tactile Internet in the CeTI Pole of Excellence, 5G communication networks, quantum communication and artificial intelligence methods.
As the fusion of cloud, networking and AI plays a central role for 6G, new concepts for distributed systems, data management and computing are essential. With its proven track record and expertise, TU Berlin’s Telecommunications Networking Group, led by Professor Falko Dressler, develops new solutions for virtual edge computing, learning and networking of machine, as well as distributed data management in the 6G era.
“We are delighted to start a collaboration with VMware,” said Falko Dressler, professor and president of telecommunications networks at TU Berlin. “Multi-layered virtualization of a mobile edge system introduces flexibility at the potential cost of increased complexity. ML helps overcome this complexity resulting from extreme virtualization across an end-to-end device continuum and opens up new frontiers for cutting-edge research paving the way for 6G.
International Research Ecosystem for the Automation of Life
These university grants will facilitate research and discovery on the automation of life in collaboration with the TETRA Initiative (Digital Equity Grid Innovation) launched by VMware in partnership with IEEE FNI and Mitacs in Canada, as VMware continues to expand its research and innovation portfolio with similar grants and partnerships around the world.
