TAICS held the 2022 TAICS Standards Forum online on May 26, 2022, focusing on B5G/6G technology development and applications. 5G technology and industry representatives from Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea were invited to share the latest 5G policy plans, technology developments, and applications. TAICS Chairman Jyuo Min Shyu and Secretary General Sheng-Lin Chou expressed their gratitude for the friendship and support from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications of Japan, ARIB of Japan, and TTA of South Korea during their opening remarks. They said that new 5G forces can be created by learning from each other through frequent interactions and forming alliances in the 3GPP organization. They also thanked ITRI, MediaTek, Keysight, Rohde & Schwarz Taiwan, and Communication Components for their help and sponsorship of this event and hoped that all participants could benefit from it.

Pang-An Ting, General Director of Information and Communications Research Laboratories of ITRI, started the presentations by introducing Taiwan’s low earth orbit satellite and 6G communication plans. Shinji Ide, Director of Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communication, indicated that Japan faced significant challenges due to the declining population and changes in social structure. Thus, Japan's government proposed Society 5.0, a blueprint for a super-smart society where humans live in a world where cyberspace and physical space are tightly integrated, and a blueprint and policy plans for realizing B5G that connects AI, robotic, and IoT technologies to realize the super-smart society that can connect with the world.

Dr. Lee of South Korea's TTA mentioned the South Korean government's commitment to improving the 6G core infrastructure in the next ten years and achieving a B5G global cooperative ecosystem. TTA has also set up multiple 5G/B5G work groups within their organization for this purpose. Moreover, NTT DOCOMO and Samsung Electronics shared Japan and South Korea’s visions and blueprints for 5G/6G, and Taiwan's speakers (representatives from MediaTek, Far EasTone, and ITRI) shared exciting information about 5G developments, low earth orbit satellite tests, and global 5G O-RAN tests. Many members attended this event; 110 to 120 participated on average.
