eBOS Participated in the 6G MUSICAL Kick-off Meeting in Aveiro, Portugal

The physical kick-off meeting of the new 6G SNS (Smart Networks & Services) Research and Innovation action, titled 6G MUSICAL: 6G MUltiband Wireless and Optical Signalling for Integrated CommunicAtions, Sensing and Localization was held between 24-25 January 2024 by the projects Coordinator, Mr Attilio Gamerio representing Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT), in Aveiro, Portugal. The meeting was attended by the project’s 11 consortium partners, while eBOS R&D Senior Project Manager Mr Philippos Philippou represented eBOS.

The 2-day meeting included partners’ presentations of the vision and objectives of the project, as well as an overview of the overall project expectations and guidelines by the European Commission’s Project Officer. Partners also discussed the project’s work plan, tasks, challenges, risks identified and implementation schedules. 

The main motivation behind the 6G-MUSICAL project is the integration of wireless communication and radar technology (two isolated technologies) and their inclusion in the definition of the future 6G network. The project aims to meet the demands of the rapidly evolving world of wireless communications, radio-sensing, localization, and positioning while investigating new spectrally and energy efficient system architectures and signals, to facilitate high-rate communication across multi-frequency bands integrated with accurate sensing and localisation. The Consortium is determined to merge radio sensing and communication technologies to create new paradigms in Radio Frequencies communication.

eBOS’ main technical role is to offer their 5G IoT testbed facility and expertise to enable the testing and validation of a 6G use case in a small-scale lab environment. eBOS will also lead the Work Package related to the maximisation of the project’s impact and visibility, including leading the dissemination, communication and outreach strategy and activities.
