Yes, the nature of the research will take the global market into account, however, there will be a special emphasis on finding the use cases of 6G for the Indian society. The use cases that Nokia and IISc will focus on, with respect to India, will include:

  • Creating more sustainable and energy-efficient communications systems
  • Improving resiliency and reliability of networks for critical communications
  • Using AI and developing "Network as Sensor" technologies to improve transportation safety, augment healthcare, and increase access to education.

By partnering, Nokia and IISc will contribute to the central government's 'Bharat 6G Vision', which aims to position India as a key global contributor to the development of 6G tech.
