While 6G is still several years away from being showcased, the technologies expected to be a major part of 6G include terahertz (THz) band, AI, optical wireless communication (OWC), 3D networking, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), and wireless power transfer.
Experts in this field believe that 6G is necessary because society is moving toward fully automated and remote management systems. Consequently, the very rapid development of various emerging applications, such as artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality, three-dimensional (3D) media, and the internet of everything (IoE), has led to a massive volume of traffic.
In fact, the global mobile traffic volume was 7.462 EB/month in 2010, and this traffic is predicted to be 5016 EB/month in 2030. This statistic clearly depicts the importance of the improvement of communication systems.
The key drivers of 6G will be the convergence of all the past features, such as network densification, high throughput, high reliability, low energy consumption, and massive connectivity.
The 6G system is also expected to continue the trends of the previous generations, which included new services with the addition of new technologies. The new services include AI, smart wearables, implants, autonomous vehicles, computing reality devices, sensing, and 3D mapping. The most important requirement for 6G wireless networks is the capability of handling massive volumes of data and very high-data-rate connectivity per device.
6G is expected to increase performance and maximize user QoS several folds more than 5G along with some exciting features. It will protect the system and secure the user data. It will also provide comfortable services.
The 6G communication system is expected to be a global communication facility. It is envisioned that the per-user bit rate in 6G will be approximately 1 Tb/s in many cases.
6G architecture is also expected to provide simultaneous wireless connectivity that is 1,000 times higher than 5G. Moreover, ultra-long-range communication with less than 1- ms latency is also expected. The most exciting feature of 6G is the inclusion of fully supported AI for driving autonomous systems. Video-type traffic is likely to be dominant among various data traffic systems in 6G communications.
