Researchers at the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation Second Institute have achieved a breakthrough in next-generation 6G communication by conducting the first real-time wireless transmission, the South China Morning Post reported. The researchers made their first successful wireless transmission at a terahertz frequency level - and achieved a 100Gbps wireless data speed.
Terahertz or THz caters to a wider bandwidth which would translate to enhanced speeds and performance as far as wireless transmission is concerned.
6G might take a while before it is publicly released. In terms of values, the test successfully completed 100Gbps wireless data transfer in 10GHz transmission bandwidth using the wireless backhaul technology. The technology is expected to deliver latency lower than optical fiber networks.
Currently, users would prefer wired fiber cables over wireless transmission due to the lack of faster speeds. Using THz bands, 6G will easily be able to compete better against fiber networks. Ultimately, the concept of wired networks would be obsolete. However, it is too early to make assumptions as it requires a lot of time and funding for the technology to finally see daylight.
Currently, it is speculated that 6G will be available by the year 2030. Additionally, the United States is also competing against China to launch the technology. This is all there is to it, folks. We will share more details on the upcoming 6G standard as soon as further details are available. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
