Speech Title: Blockchain-Enabled 6G Wireless Network

Abstract: The 6G revolutionizes the end-user experience in networking by providing higher frequency, higher capacity, and lower latency in comparison to 5G cellular technology. Expecting to facilitate significant improvements in the wireless system area relying on 6G technology, network infrastructure is required to get updated aiming to provide more secure wireless systems and address the use case requirements accordingly. Blockchain as a distributed ledger technology addresses most of the current limitations of the 6G technology including security concerns. The shortcomings and limitations of 6G technology and the provided opportunities by blockchain-enabled services to facilitate 6G networks will be discussed in this speech.
