China plans to deploy the first sixth-generation (6G) mobile network by 2030.
“When we were leading the way with 5G, work on 6G had already begun. By 2030, 6G will be commercially available. We now need to accelerate the definition and research and development of 6G '', & mdash; Wang Jianzhou, former chairman of the board of China Mobile and GSMA consultant, said.
6G services are projected to transfer data at speeds of up to 1 Tbps, while fifth generation (5G) networks provide theoretical bandwidth up to 20 Gbps.
For 6G networks, the possibility of using the terahertz spectrum is being considered. With the advent of 6G, it is expected to introduce qualitatively new Internet services, interactive platforms, enterprise management systems and smart transport.
