Next Generation 6G Networks Crash Course
There are a number of reasons we need next generation 6G networks.
Take technology convergence. The next generation of 6G networks will integrate previously disparate technologies, such as deep learning and big data analytics.
The introduction of 5G has paved the way for much of this convergence, but this journey is far from over.
Next generation 6G networks are also expected to advance edge computing and the Internet of Things (IoT). Sector analysts believe the need to deploy edge computing to ensure overall throughput and low latency for ultra reliable, low-latency communications solutions is an important driver of 6G.
Another driving force is the need to support machine-to-machine communication in IoT.
Then there’s high-performance computing (HPC). A strong relationship has been identified between 6G and HPC. While edge computing resources will handle some of the IoT and mobile technology data, much of it will require more centralized HPC resources to do the processing.
6G networks will be able to use higher frequencies than 5G networks and provide substantially higher capacity and much lower latency. These factors alone provide considerable advantages for 6G over 5G. And while it’s still too early to approximate 6G data rates, a theoretical peak data rate of 1 terabyte per second for wireless data may be possible.
Greater levels of capacity and near zero latency will likely expand the scope of capabilities to support new and innovative applications in wireless connectivity, cognition, sensing and imaging. With 6G, access points will be able to serve multiple clients simultaneously via orthogonal frequency-division multiple access.
Additionally, mobile edge computing will be built into all 6G networks, whereas it must be added to existing 5G networks. Edge and core computing will be more integrated as part of a combined communications and computation infrastructure framework by the time 6G networks are deployed.
This approach will provide many potential advantages as 6G technology becomes operational. These benefits include improved access to AI capabilities and support for sophisticated mobile devices and systems.
Heading the list of challenges for next generation 6G networks is the same issue that has slowed its predecessor 5G: how to harness faster but less stable radio frequency waves.
6G will use a spectrum above 100 GHz and will ultimately reach THz.
The advantages of employing such a high frequency are obvious: huge bandwidth may be used, allowing for Tbps peak data flow with microsecond-level latency. However, there are several limitations to employing such a high-frequency spectrum, including the use of waves that travel shorter distances and waves that are subject to penetration issues and disturbances caused by weather.
