Nvidia has launched a 6G research cloud platform it says will help usher in a new era of wireless technology and offer AI-enabled communication capabilities.

The launch was announced at Nvidia’s GTC AI conference taking place this week in San Jose, California. 

The 6G platform is made up of three foundational elements: a digital twin application for users to create simulations of 6G systems, a software-defined, full-RAN stack for researchers to customize, program and test 6G networks in real time and a neural radio framework to train AI and machine learning models at scale.

Nvidia said the platform will accelerate the development of 6G technologies, connecting trillions of devices including robots, autonomous vehicles and smart home products.

Early adopters of the new platform include Samsung, SoftBank, Nokia, Arm, Fujitsu and ETH Zurich, to name a few.

“The massive increase in connected devices and host of new applications in 6G will require a vast leap in wireless spectral efficiency in radio communications,” said Ronnie Vasishta, Nvidia’s senior vice president of telecom. “Key to achieving this will be the use of AI, a software-defined, full-RAN reference stack and next-generation digital twin technology.”

Nvidia said testing and simulation will play a crucial role in developing the next generation of wireless technology, with the 6G platform built to serve this rising demand.
