Based on our preliminary research, it shows that many new emerging services (such as V2V in Vehicular Telematics Services, Industry 4.0 and e- Healthcare Services, and manufacturing industry 4.0) could be realized and implemented easily and economically. It could be also serve as a core engine to enable many Services in Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Both of Future Research Directions and the ICT Convergence for Entrepreneurs in the area of Fog/Edge Computing and Networking will be performed in this initiative. From Technology aspect, we will propose current views on how to identify potential road blocks and then solve these technical challenges for future 6G wireless Network. Now both the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) in US (emphasizes Data Telecom and Services) and the NGMN Alliance in Germany (emphasizes Telecom and Applications) have been also conducting similar research for future 6G and next Generation IoT Services and Applications.
