The speed of 6G network is significantly faster than that of 5G network, and it will be applied in many important fields in the future.
6G network or 6th generation mobile network is the technology that follows the 5G network generation. 6G networks are expected to support wider frequency bands with data transfer speeds many times faster than 5G networks. At the same time, the 6G network also has wider and better coverage, which fully meets the factors that 5G has not yet realized.
Currently, 6G networks are still being researched and are expected to be announced at least in 2028 or 2030. This is understandable since current 5G networks are not widely available in many countries.
What does 6G network mean to users?
In theory, the 6G network is the same as the 5G network, but every standard on the 6G network is much better. Factors such as faster speed, lower latency, wider bandwidth, etc.
Researchers believe that 6G networks will be faster than wired networks. Faster speeds and lower latency make connecting one device to another nearly instant.
Many potential areas such as self-driving cars, drones and smart cities are already using 5G networks. With the help of 6G, these technologies can function better in the future. DoCoMo (Japan) believes that cyberspace can support human thought and action in real time through wearables and small mobile devices.
Scientists report that when the connection speed exceeds 100Gbps, a lifelike interface will be created through smart glasses or contact lenses.
What potential areas will 6G be used for?
The development of 5G network aims to build a user-centric information ecosystem. At the same time, 6G networks will be the focus of potential future technologies such as:
Multisensory Augmented Reality (XR) Applications
XR will bring many applications to 6G on the AR (Augmented Reality), MR (Augmented Mixed Reality), VR (Virtual Reality) spectrum. Currently, 5G connectivity is still insufficient to provide the most complete XR experience, such as perceiving sensory input, due to high latency.
With 6G, all the shortcomings of 5G connectivity will be improved. High data rates and low latency make every XR experience flawless.
Autonomous Systems and Connected Robots (CRAS)
The main driving force behind 6G systems is the upcoming CRAS, which includes delivery systems using drones, self-driving cars, self-driving cars and robots. CRAS may be a key area where stringent ratio-reliability-latency requirements are required, a balance that does not yet exist in 5G.
Wireless Brain-Computer Interaction (BCI)
In addition to XR, wireless system customization is required to support direct BCI services. Previously, BCI applications were limited to healthcare situations where humans use brain implants to control prosthetics or adjacent computing devices.
However, the recent advent of wireless brain-computer interfaces and implantable devices will revolutionize the field. It also introduces new use case scenarios that require 6G connectivity.
Using wireless BCI technology instead of smartphones, people will interact with their environment and others through gestures, and communicate with loved ones through tactile information.
BCI services will require completely different performance metrics than those offered by 5G. Similar to XR, wireless BCI services require high speed, ultra-low latency and high reliability.
Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) and Blockchain
Blockchain and DLT will be one of the most disruptive technologies. Blockchain and DLT applications can be viewed as the next generation of distributed sensor services, whose connectivity needs will require a synergistic combination of reliable, ultra-low latency and communications. ..Machine to Machine ensures low latency, reliable connectivity and scalability over wired or wireless (mMTC) networks.
