The next technological revolution in the field of communications networks will be the sixth generation mobile networks, or 6G networks. IMDEA Networks is playing a determining role in the development of this new technological paradigm, leading several pioneering projects of 6G technology, developing cutting-edge lines of research and playing a determining role in the SNS JU (Small Network and Services Joint Undertaking), a Large-scale European public-private initiative to research and develop advanced 5G and 6G technologies. However, in order to continue playing this role and ensure that Spain has a relevant role in research in this revolutionary field, it is essential to have a leading experimental platform at a global level that allows the evaluation and validation of new disruptive ideas and new technologies in the field of 6G networks, thus ensuring their practical viability. In order to create this unique experimental platform, IMDEA Networks participates in the SLICES-RI research infrastructure ( included in the ESFRI Roadmap 2021. IMDEA Networks has contributed since its inception to SLICES-RI and has a relevant role, managing the node of the 5TONIC laboratory ( integrated in SLICES-RI.

ADVANCE_6G aims to provide the scientific and technological infrastructure and equipment that will allow 5TONIC to address, in an integrated manner with SLICES-RI, an infrastructure for experimentation in advanced 5G and 6G, offering a catalog of resources and services available to the research community, not only nationally but also internationally.

This project is funded by the Spanish Ministry of Digital Transformation and Civil Service, the Spanish Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan (PRTR) and the European Union-NextGenerationEU.
