According to Nikkei, various countries have begun to target the next generation of communication technologies after 5G. Japan plans official-civilian cooperation to formulate a comprehensive strategy for “post-5G” (6G technology). It plans to achieve communication speeds that are 10 times faster than 5G by 2030. China, South Korea, and Finland have also started research, development, and investment. If you have patents related to communication standards, you can make huge profits through the sale of equipment and software. Japan, which is slowing down in 5G development, strives to catch up.
The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications of Japan will set up a government-civilian research society in January. Representatives from NTT Docomo and Toshiba will summarize comprehensive strategies such as 6G performance goals and policy support by June. Japan will promote the development of 6G technology using the government budget.
Using “post-5G” (6G) high-speed communication technology, many unimaginable things will be possible. The speed of 6G must be at least 10 times faster than 5G. This is the plan of the Japanese Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications. The research will center on network speeds that can instantly transfer large amounts of data instantly. This technology is suitable for transmitting large amounts of data. Unused high-frequency radio waves will also be used for communication.
6G technology – research and development is on the way
In order to achieve 6G technology by 2030, countries have begun to take action. The Chinese government announced in November 2019 that it will establish two 6G R & D institutions. Finnish universities and government-affiliated institutions have also launched 6G R & D projects. In South Korea, Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics each set up research centers in 2019.
In Japan, large telecommunications operators such as NTT Docomo will launch 5G services from spring 2020. 5G will become popular in the future, but many countries are already targetting the next generation technology after 5G.
