Introduction to 6G
6G is expected to revolutionize the way we communicate — even more so than 5G.
With 6G’s predicted debut in 2030 come visions of a much different world pushed forward by more advances in technological architecture.
For example 6G will likely bring more accurate indoor positioning, allowing an application to identify exactly where you are in a 10-story building. Also expect a more tactile internet that allows remote machine operation or cooperative automated driving.
Also on the way thanks to 6G technology is improved in-flight and on-the-move connectivity as well as the transmission of biological information extracted from exhaled breath, allowing the detection of developing contagions and the diagnosis of disease.
Additionally, around 2030, Holographic Multiple Input Multiple Output Surface (HMIMOS) should be starting to appear. HMIMOS refers to a low-cost transformative wireless planar structure comprising of sub-wavelength metallic or dielectric scattering particles, which is capable of impacting electromagnetic waves according to desired objectives.
A practical implementation of active HMIMOS can be a compact integration of an infinite number of tiny antenna elements with reconfigurable processing networks realizing a continuous antenna aperture. This structure can be used to transmit and receive communication signals across the entire surface by leveraging the hologram principle.
One possible usage of HMIMOS would be corporate meetings where attendees look to be physically present, but are actually holographic projections.
6G research is organized into four interrelated strategic research areas: wireless connectivity, device and circuit technologies, distributed intelligent computing, and novel applications and services. Major scientific breakthroughs are sought in all of them.
The main future uses of 6G are foreseen to take place in different verticals that 5G has already started to address. There will be very high capacity short-range solutions as well as solutions addressing the challenges of remote and rural areas.
The minds that meld the wireless network industry expect 6G to have speeds 10 times greater than the fifth generation and more bandwidth to handle new data-hogging devices such as unmanned factory equipment and autonomous cars.
The actual format for 6G will depend on how 5G develops and where its shortfalls appear to be. Currently there are many different use cases that have been put forward. It is expected that it will be used increasingly for the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as inter-vehicle communications for autonomous vehicles.
There are many more parts to the 6G future that are just now starting to take shape such as the use of artificial intelligence and deep learning techniques to optimize 6G communications and the use of “smart radio environments” with reconfigurable reflecting surfaces to optimize signal transmission.
For organizations hoping to get a leg up on their competition, now is the time to tap into and follow the 6G era to better sharpen 6G strategies.
