When it comes to technology, change is the only constant. It has taken less than a decade for 1G to become 5G, and now it seems that 6G will be the next step towards even greater and faster wireless connectivity. In the past two decades, we have seen rapid changes and advancements that we would have never imagined. Here’s what you need to know about the advanced 6G network.
The possibility of 6G in the future
While half of the world is still communicating via 4G or the newly deployed 5G network, and many areas around the world still use 3G, it seems premature to start talking about 6G.
Typically, there is a new network in the spotlight every decade or so. There’s a high probability that 6G networks will roll out around 2030. Since the experimental work began almost a decade ago, rumors about the 6G network are now circulating. After the new network hits the market, it won’t take long for telecom companies to conduct 6G trials and mobile manufacturers to release 6G-compatible devices.
6G Network Benefits
Simply put, every single improvement brought about by 5G will be reflected in 6G as a better and enhanced version. Marcus Weldon of Nokia Bell Labs says 6G will be a sixth sense experience for both humans and machines, where biology and artificial intelligence come together.
6G will continue to support all the advanced technology we’re already destined to experience with the 5G network like the more powerful VR and AR, interconnected smart farms and cities, V2V communication, intelligent robot workforce in factories, etc.
6G will add a modified layer of bigger bandwidth to all these services, expanding the field of further innovation. So with 6G, we might come one step closer to making the sci-fi world a reality with more immersive VR applications, life-like 3D hologram video calls, and many more.
