6G: speeds could increase up to 1 TB/s, 8000 times the speed of 5G


6G technology

The world is just beginning to discover 5G but China is already looking towards 6G. The Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology recently launched preparatory work for the development of the future network. The foundations are already laid and in the opinion of some experts, 6G speeds could reach 1 terabyte per second, or approximately 8,000 times the speed of 5G.

China has set up two working groups to oversee research around 6G. One of the groups is made up of several executives from the sector ministries concerned. They are responsible for supporting the efforts of the second group, which is purely technical. The latter includes up of 37 experts from universities, research institutes and technology companies.

If this work seems early given that 5G is still in its infancy, recall that it takes about 10 years to develop a new generation network. Knowing that the first steps of 6G are in plans for 2030, the timing seems quite logical.

What are the speeds of the 6G networks?

6g

In theory, 6G networks can offer speeds of up to 1 terabyte per second, or 8,000 gigabits per second according to Dr. Mahyar Shirvanimoghaddam of the University of Sydney. These flows would open the door to entirely new types of uses and revolutionize the relationships humans have with technology. The 6G era could, for example, offer new perspectives in terms of brain-computer interfaces. For example, it would be possible to use devices “via our brain,” he said.

As for the daily use of the Internet. To put that into perspective, broadcasting Netflix in the highest definition requires 56 gigabits of data per hour. With 6G, you would be able to download just over 142 hours of high-quality video every second.

However, as things stand, researchers still have to remove significant obstacles to achieve this goal. For the specialist, these 6G speeds would require significant improvements in “materials science, computer architecture, chip design and energy use (…) We must think about sustainable ways to supply all these devices without the risk of burning the Earth, “he said.

    So 1200 hd porn seems on your mind is not enough? You need 8000!
    5 g is a waste as well. The money would be better spent making the 4g system more widespread. I can get 200m down on my phone today with 4g. I can stream and surf and still have 180m to spare

    We don’t have hard disk drives or ssd drives that can handle that much info per second. It may take many years before we will have such things. Same goes for the processors and ram memory.

    See you in 20 years ,6g

    Jesus christ why bother. We’ll all be dead before 5g even touches down.

    Can we just work on my 10MB/s connection first?

    Listen to this. 5g will be really bad for humans. It has such a strong radiation that it can cause brain cancer, tumors and worse things yet to come. 6g will be effectively the extermination of the human race. We have to stop this RIGHT NOW

    It wont matter. Those who live check by check cant afford the phones or the service. I think just bbn greed. Keep making new networks with faster way for them to make more money. It’s sad.

    Only thinking about material benefit when 5g was made, in spite it will have serious consequences for human health.

    do you think they are inviting the 6G or even the 5G for your porn movies?!
    this is plan for IoT, AI-IoT and better medical solutions!

    Small minds have limited forward Thinking capabilities. Try to expand upon what we have now and think 10 years in the future to things that do not exist today.

    Back when I had to text using the dial pad, I did not even have a keyboard (speech-to-text Technology like Wildflower was $10 to $20,000 for large-scale operations. I never thought I’d be able to watch videos on my phone or FaceTime with my colleagues! So perhaps a hologram interface, 10 years from now is very likely!

    With better speech-to-text we will not need keyboards, the way technology enhances 286-386-486 Pentium chip, dual-core /quad-core now 8 core we will have computers that you didn’t think of would be possible in 10 years.

    * FYI in 2000 a T-1 = 1.544 Mbps sold for $1,900 from Bell Atlantic to a business (using rule 72 in today’s money that would be $3,800 a month) for a 1.5 mbps circuit now do you see the picture!

    * DS-3 45 Mbps sold for $28,500; so about $57,000 a month for 45 Mbps. Only CBS NBC DOD would need this!

    5g is not a waste. As 5g becomes more wide-spread, 4g will be a fall-back to fill in the gaps, much like 3g is often available where 4g is not.

    That just means the network will be able to serve more nodes without slowing down.
