The next generation of networks will need to be extremely agile and highly reconfigurable to meet the demanding requirements imposed by emerging complex use cases. The 6G network will have to be self-controllable at much finer levels than the 5G network to realize different services such as the metaverse and the Internet of Things (IoT). To this end, significant improvements will need to be made to multiple wireless radio access technologies, including LoRa, millimeter-wave transmission, and THz, the core network, and auxiliary infrastructure to ensure higher performance and greater reliability. Furthermore, complex strategies employing the latest ML/AI technologies will be needed to manage and orchestrate resources so they can be optimally shared among different services. Due to this inevitable resource sharing among services, security and privacy must be organically integrated into its design.

INES aims to design, build, and test an intelligent end-to-end network suitable for developing scenarios that integrate IoT and cyber-physical systems. In doing so, IMDEA Networks will create a network capable of fulfilling the promises of 6G by providing new and unique tools to the scientific community through its various national and international collaborations, highlighting its participation in the 5TONIC laboratory (
