What is 6G, and when we will be able to get it? But it is already making headlines in the world of technology. Right now, 5G is here (almost). You can buy a 5G smartphone, enjoy and use all the benefits of a 5G data connection. But, technology never stops, and the next step in the world of mobile communication is already talked about.
There is a growing amount of 6G information out there, and much of it built around some reports and studies. Let’s clear up a few things about 6G, and find out what the reality of this future tech is.
Is 6G real?
Yes and no. Yes, 6G (or whatever called after all) will replace 5G. But 6G is not yet a working technology and is in the early stages of research. Mobile telecom companies are focusing too much on 5G to tackle 6G in any significant way. Although initial research projects have begun in return for government funding that seeks to benefit.
When it is coming?
“It’ll be too early to talk about 6G.”
Not our words, but the words of Ericsson’s, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Ericsson during the MWVC 2019 Shanghai in July 2019. In December 2020, Verizon CTO Kyle Malady then said, “I don’t know what 6G is. We’ll call it that again: it’s about 5G at the moment.
But if research is beginning, when will 6G start? Ekudden estimates that 6G will be a decade ahead. A prediction is consistent with Huawei’s founder Ren Zhengfei. Who told CNBC in September 2019 that 6G would be at least ten years away. Was a 2021 report by ABI Research predicts that the initial commercial settlement will take place in 2028, 2028. And 2029, followed by more extensive discussions in the years to come.
How fast will it be?
We don’t know how fast 6G will be yet, but estimates are 100 times faster than 5G. The final standard will define a 6G connection. It will be under the auspices of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). After more than eight years of operation, the ITU has recently abolished the 5G standard (hence called IMT 2020). And it hoped that soon the same done for 6G. Such a process will begin.
This has not stopped experts from estimating how fast 6G will be. One of the most cited is Dr. Mahyar Shirvanimoghaddam from the University of Sydney. Who claims that 6G can provide amazing brain speeds at 1TB per second or 8000 gigabits per second? Forget about downloading a movie from Netflix in a few seconds with such 6G speed. You will be able to download 142 hours of Netflix movies in one second.
As far as ITU concerned, it has not published much on 6G yet. In May 2019, he talked about IMT 2030, which he described as a hybrid network and an upgrade to 5G. Instead of a completely new network, which we expected. There are 6G.
What does 6G mean to you?
It will be like 5G, but even more so. Even faster, even slower delays, and bandwidth masses. Researchers and scientists are talking about 6G moving beyond “wired” networks. Devices that act as antennas and are not controlled by any network operator. Decentralized Use the network. If everything connected to 5G usage, 6G will set these connected devices up for free. As fast and low latency of data makes instant device connection from device possible.
Although the technology we expect from 5G. From autonomous cars and drones to smart cities – will be further enhanced. It will integrate our brains with computers through science. And improve touch control systems. Can also help. . Talking about the creation of NTT DoCoMo 6G, “cyberspace can support human thoughts. And actions in real-time through variable devices and micro-devices installed on the human body.” Others have called it “teleportation of the senses” for the same reasons.
The report points to the reality of science in the realm of science fiction. Saying that speeds over 100 GB perceive potential sensory interfaces. Through smart glasses or contact lenses. Which, made the video an overnight sensation. It talks about prioritizing low power consumption to compensate for the wind. And the coverage that can spread across the ocean and even into space.
Who is working on 6G?
In 2020 and early 2021, research initiatives in 6G became more popular. As governments around the world began researching the possibilities of adopting new technologies. Before their competitors. This can break down into several recent key investments.
- According to China’s state news agency, the nation has already launched an experimental 6G satellite. One of the 13 satellites set to launch the Long March 6 rocket by China in November 2020 announced. The China Global Television Network also reported that the satellite weighed 70 kilograms. And designed to help carry out data transmission tests over a long period. Distance with terahertz spectrum. The satellite used to check crops, forest fires, and environmental data. Most recently, CNIPA (China National Intellectual Property Administration) announced. That it held 35% of the 6,000-related 38,000 patents.
- In Europe, the 6G Flagship Project is working to combine research on 6G technologies, currently at the University of Oulu in Finland.
- Japan is allocating 48 482 million over the next few years to help spread 6G. This funding will also create a facility where researchers can develop wireless projects. The country’s goal by 2025 is to highlight standard mobile technology.
- In Germany, Vodafone Germany announced in 2021 that it was setting up a 6G research facility in Dresden.
- In South Korea, it is not surprising that Samsung is working on 6G. And finds this technology particularly promising for advanced technology such as the hologram. It is another organization that is predicting that the first rollout of 6G could take place in early 2028.
- In Russia, the R&D Institute NIIR and the Skolkovo Institute of Science. And Technology predicts in 2021 that 6G networks will soon be available in 2035.
- As far as the United States concerned, the 6G effort is more private than state-owned fuel. Although the federal government announced a partnership with South Korea in 2021 on 6G research. Some mobile companies in the US are growing with their 6G growth. In particular, AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile are launching an entire industry initiative called ATIS. The Next G Alliance to organize and advance 6G research across North America. Can go. In May 2021, the NextG Alliance launched a technical work program to integrate a series of new workgroups. With the specific goal of developing 6G technology. If the number of patents is correct, the United States currently lags behind China with 18% of 6G patents.
