What does the future hold for 6G?

By

Electronics company LG has successfully demonstrated the transmission and reception of wireless 6G THz data over 100 metres in an outdoor setting, a breakthrough in 6th generation mobile telecommunication development.

iTWire previously reported that LG collaborated with Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Europe’s largest applied research lab. The data travelled between Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute and the Berlin Institute of Technology in Germany.

With this breakthrough, LG looks at the possibilities and what the future may hold for 6G.

LG says 6G uses terahertz frequencies which refer to the spectrum between 0.1 to 10 THz electromagnetic wave with wavelengths of 30 to 3000 micrometres.

THz signals are very sensitive to shadows which significantly impact coverage. Furthermore, lower frequency terahertz experiences larger free space fading, LG adds.

While only a test, the LG demonstration marks a milestone in the evolution of 6G.

According to LG Electronics principal research engineer Dr Lee Ki-dong, 6G technology will play a key role for promising future industries including autonomous vehicles, AI robots and virtual and augmented reality-based technologies.

LG says 6G is a key component of its focus on mobility, autonomous vehicles and cloud-based service robots.

“What self-driving cars and remote surgery have in common is the need for connectivity that 5G cannot readily support but which ultra-responsive and extremely low-latency 6G can,” Ki-dong says. “But while the technology will be ready, it’s also critically important for governments to be on board as well and that requires the right regulations.”
