Is it too early for organizations to prepare for 6G?
Industry advisers answer this question with a resounding “absolutely not.”
While 6G is still a decade away, organizations that stay up to date with what this next networking architecture has to offer will have a leg up on their competition. While 5G commercialization is still in its initial stage, it’s never too early to start preparing for 6G because it typically takes around 10 years from the start of research to commercialization of a new generation of communications technology.
When you start to take a serious look into likely 6G architecture, you quickly understand how companies and organizations will need some time to sort it all out and plan how 6G can best serve their interests.
An impressive list of services will ultimately act as major drivers for 6G, including high-fidelity mobile holographic displays and also XR (extended reality), which would combine virtual, augmented and mixed-reality applications.
In fact, XR has attracted great attention and will open new horizons in various fields including entertainment, medicine, science, education and manufacturing industries.
Most tech insiders believe 6G would need to hit a couple of benchmarks first starting with a hyper-fast data rate that outruns 5G, with download speeds of at least 1,000Gbps (50 times the speed of 5G) and all-time low latency, or “air latency” of less than 100 μs, end-to-end (E2E) latency less than 1 ms, and extremely low delay jitter in the order of microseconds.
