- Prof. Wolfgang Kellerer on the next wireless communications generation “6G will be human-focused”

From hologram-based communications to remote-controlled surgical procedures – the 6G wireless standard will make many high-tech applications a reality. A major project now being launched at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) aims to establish the key technical criteria for the new standard. In this interview, project leader Prof. Wolfgang Kellerer explains how 6G will become the most intelligent wireless network, when Germany could take on a leading role and why, in the world of research, new speed records are less important than ensuring 99.999999999% reliability.
