To satisfy the requirements of full-spectrum,full-scenario and full-service networking in the future Internet of things,the intent-driven radio access network (ID-RAN) is proposed for the 6G wireless communication system to decrease the networking costs and save the labor expense,while enhancing the intelligent capabilities of the radio access network.Based on the artificial intelligence,network function virtualization and software-defined networking,the intents from applications,performance requirements and networking status can be translated to the configuration and optimization strategies by the proposed ID-RAN,which enables 6G work efficiently,flexibility and elastically.The system architecture of ID-RAN was proposed firstly,and then the principles and solutions of key techniques were formulated,including intent translation,conflict resolution,configuration trigger,performance evaluation and optimization.Meanwhile,the open software-defined hardware platform for ID-RAN was built,and the corresponding performances aimed for 6G were presented.

Key words: 6G, intent-driven radio access network (ID-RAN), artificial intelligence, hardware platform
