Samsung Revealed What Kind Of Hyper Speed Communication 6G Might Become

Samsung has outlined its vision for the development of 6th-generation networks. Researchers at the Korean firm expect that if the 5G networks currently being deployed around the world primarily give a boost to the growth of mobile gaming, streaming services, Internet of things devices and driverless cars, then the future standard of high — speed mobile communication — 6G-will slow down all aspects of everyday life.

This forecast is contained in the report "next-generation hyperlink Technology for all" published today. According to experts, the development of a new-generation communication system will end by 2028, and it will become available to mass consumers in 2030.

In ten years, the report says, the number of Internet-connected gadgets will exceed the world's population. Wireless connectivity will require all sorts of devices - from cars and home appliances to "smart" sensors and holographic devices.

Samsung expects that the introduction of 6G will open the way to services such as immersive augmented reality (a combination of technologies that combine augmented, virtual and mixed reality), high-quality mobile holograms and digital replication. And the main users of "hyperlink" will be "both people and machines."

Creating digital copies of people, objects, and other objects in the virtual world, as well as displaying gestures and facial expressions on a holographic display, will require much higher communication quality than 5G can offer.

Following the commercialization of 5G technologies, both academia and industry are

initiating research activities to shape the next-generation communication system, namely

6G. Considering the general trend of successive generations of communication systems

introducing new services with more stringent requirements, it is reasonable to expect 6G

to satisfy unprecedented requirements and expectations that 5G cannot meet.

We expect that 6G will provide ultimate experience for all through hyper-connectivity

involving humans and everything. In this white paper, we aim to provide readers with a

comprehensive overview of various aspects related to 6G, including technical and societal

trends, services, requirements, and candidate technologies.

To ensure such speeds and minimal delay in data transmission, researchers suggest using the terahertz (THz) frequency range, new antenna technologies to expand the coverage area of high-frequency signals, advanced duplex technologies, the development of network topology, and the beginning of the use of artificial intelligence in wireless communications.

Officially, the requirements for 6G networks have not yet been defined. The International Telecommunication Union is expected to begin active work on the future communication standard in 2021.
