China tests the world's first 6G technology. The South China Morning Post reports that the high-tech laboratory in Nanjing, in China's eastern Jiangsu province, has ushered in a breakthrough in next-generation communications technology. The lab was part of a special government project with Futan University and the country's telecommunications company, China Mobile, on 6G technology. He has said that this technology will play a huge role for us in the future.
The world has not yet seen the potential of 5G and how it will change our world. Although low latency and high transmission speeds are notable features of the technology, overall, there does not appear to be a general global application of this technology. The high deployment costs of the technology have caused a drawback in its release; in fact, operators choose slower speeds until usage increases, SCMP said.
However, this did not bother the engineers' desire to build the next big thing. Last year, we talked about how LG Electronics works for 6G wireless communications and how China will already use 6G-enabled satellites by 2020. However, the problem is that no standard has been adopted to define what it is. became 6G.
Future 6G Technology
SCMP states that 3GPP, the organization that sets global communications standards, has not yet released a roadmap for 6G and that countries have not yet adopted a common framework for the fixed frequencies, signal modifications, and waveforms used to operate the technology. Without it, any peak of 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) provided by 5G would become the next frontier for mobile communication.
The lab, known as Purple Mountain Laboratories in China, is headed by Professor Yu Xiaohu and claims to have reached a speed of 206.25 Gbps in the laboratory environment. Although this record has not yet been published in a journal, it is a world record for transmissions in the 300GHz-3THz bandwidth, which SCMP says will be used in 6G technology. 6G technology will become the most sought-after service in the future.
Even tool manufacturers are not sure when this technology will be released. When Huawei President Xu Zhijun told the SCMP in September last year that "we do not know what 6G is now," Ericsson expected it to be available in 2027 and expected the definition to come in the next decade.
