About nGRG

The next Generation Research Group (nGRG) is a research task force founded by the O-RAN ALLIANCE in June 2022.

Formed by members from major mobile operators, vendors from telecom, IT and DT industries, and well-known research institutes and universities around the world, nGRG takes the mission to leverage industry and academic 6G research efforts and determine how O-RAN will evolve to support 6G and beyond, considering regional research efforts, ITU-R, and 3GPP development.

nGRG defines O-RAN ALLIANCE’s 6G research agenda and key priorities, with the focuses to achieve O-RAN sustainability from 4G/5G to 6G and beyond and unify the 6G technology path to avoid incompatibility with other SDOs.

Through nGRG’s white papers, it will recommend appropriate actions to the development of next generation O-RAN.
