Day 1 Event: 

IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) Workshop on Rural Connectivity provides an opportunity to deep dive into the policies, infrastructures, applications, use cases, standardization and open source efforts that are gaining prominence in creating communication infrastructure/ecosystem where not existing as well as improving utilization of such infrastructure/ecosystem where it is already present.

The 6G and beyond network standards will be defined with an overarching theme including connecting the unconnected and ubiquitous connectivity. Today, both wireless (4G/5G/6G) and wired connectivity (FTTX) is gaining traction in the rural areas.
