Abstract: This panel focuses on the theme: On–Demand 6G for Resilient and Ubiquitous Networking targeting particularly the following user cases:
1) Access on demand: Ships on the ocean, expeditions in the mountain, and festivals in the field require network access only during the concerned activities. For these applications, one–off infrastructure is far more attractive than permanent infrastructure.
2) Emergency communications: Network resilience is seriously threatened by unexpected incidents.
Natural disasters could bring down base stations. Hardware/software malfunctioning could cause
network failure. In these cases, fast–deployable solution is crucial to provide emergency coverage.
3) Traffic off–loading. Network is designed to accommodate limited traffic, while traffic changes with time and location. Consequently, in some areas or during certain time (like Pandemics), the traffic requirement may exceed the designed capacity, leading to poor services. Flexible off–loading is required in this case.
