As 5G technology gradually spreads around the world, technology giants are already preparing for the advent of 6G Wireless Technology. LG was the first in the world to test this technology outside a laboratory and transmit 6G terahertz wireless communication signals over a distance of 100 meters.
While the world is still in the transition to using 5G networks, some technology companies, such as Samsung or LG, are testing 6G transmission using terahertz (THz) waves.
Although Samsung has already tested it last year, South Korean company LG This is the first time in a long distance that she has carried out outdoor trials in front of her this year.
LG conducted a test at a distance of 100 meters against 15 meters Used in testing Made by Samsung in the lab. Another novelty is that the test was done outside. The experiment was carried out in collaboration with the German company Franhofer-Kesselsoft, which specializes in research in applied sciences.
To make this experiment a success, LG set up a research center dedicated to 6G and worked with Franhofer-Kesselsoft to develop a power amplifier.
“The success of this experiment proves that we are closer than ever to the successful implementation of the Terahertz radio communications spectrum in the next 6G era,” said IP Park, President and CDO of LG Electronics.
In theory, the new 6G technology should be 100 times faster than 5G.
When will 6G be launched?
In 2020, the South Korean manufacturer Samsung said it 6G will be launched Used on a limited number of sites from 2028 and by 2030. According to Samsung, humans and machines will be the main beneficiaries of this technology. Digital copy.
Its rival LG is pushing for almost the same period by promising that the new 6G technology will become a global standard by 2025. However, the company says its commercialization will only take place between 2025 and 2029.
