Abstract: 5G technology is becoming a reality, with several deployments appearing around the world. Despite bringing improvements, 5G technology may not adequately support many envisaged applications that will demand large amounts of network resources. Thus, studies on the next generation, the 6G, are highly desirable. Observing this landscape, in this paper, we present a seminal study about the potential usage of 6G to support such highly demanding applications. Towards this study, we model a 6G system at the simulation level and conduct a case study exploring an application of high-definition video monitoring, applying the concepts of drone-swarm based surveillance. This scenario demands the transmission of large amounts of video data through the network. The acquired results present evidence that 6G can address these high network traffic demands.
