Despite its U.S. introduction in 2019, 5G technology failed to live up to its lofty expectations – until recently.

5G-Advanced, as part of 3GPP Release 18 in 2024, is generally considered the next milestone in the 5G Era.

5G-Advanced brings in new wireless technology innovations strengthening the 5G system foundation including improving speed, maximizing coverage, enhancing mobility and power efficiency.

Additionally, 5G-Advanced is set to bring enhancements on mobility by Uplink and Multicast at better latency and position accuracy for XR as well as increasing sustainability from the use of AI/ML data-driven designs.

5G-Advanced is considered a giant step over 5G in the advancement of wireless communications technology.

And yet, waiting in the wings is the next future wireless communications star in the guise of 6G technology, expected to take center stage around 2030.

6G networks will be able to use higher frequencies than 5G networks and provide substantially higher capacity and much lower latency. One of the goals of the 6G internet is to support one microsecond latency communications. This is 1,000 times faster — or 1/1000th the latency — than one millisecond throughput.

The 6G technology market is expected to facilitate large improvements in the areas of imaging, presence technology and location awareness.

Working in conjunction with artificial intelligence (AI), the 6G computational infrastructure will be able to identify the best place for computing to occur; this includes decisions about data storage, processing and sharing.
