holotransport, blockchain and many autonomous robots


If 5G and the era of 'gigabits' is still starting with many promises, imagine now what 6G and its revolution 'terabit' could offer us.

When still most of us look forward to the take-off of 5G networks, which are already here but in a mode still 'non-standalone' on 4G LTE hardware and without basic and economic cut terminals that bring it closer to everyone, from Huawei and other Asian brands picked up the gauntlet of Japan announcing the start of their research on 6G, which should be ready approximately around the year 2030 with an advance the key 'terabit'.

In fact, some of the industry's top experts have helped CounterPoint Research study the 6G revolution that promises many challenges and complexities due to the use of increasingly higher frequencies, but that will provide endless possibilities for change our lives and the way we work and communicate in something that the consultant calls a new 'TeraEconomy' global.

Huawei starts the 6G path in Spain

6G networks will officially welcome the 'Terabits' revolution.

The truth is that practically we have always met these 10-year cycles in each generation of mobile connectivity, and if 5G has arrived with its performance 'gigabit' and its minimal latency, it seems that the 6G will make the leap 'terabit' Y will accelerate the digital transformation started these days with Big Data, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality and robotics in general, with connected machines and machine learning as base.

The pandemic has only delayed a few months the beginning of all this transformation in the physical part of the networks, although in part it has also contributed to accelerate collaborative teleworking and other aspects of a more globalized technology collaboration that companies have had to adopt in a hurry, opening a scenario in which talent is sought and hired anywhere in the world and by any company, using full high-performance personal and work connectivity offered by 5G networks.

The connected personal and work transformation that 5G has initiated and accelerated the pandemic, will serve as the basis for 6G networks that will provide infinite possibilities, such as remote collaborative medical surgeries, 'holotransport' and, for example, fully connected autonomous machines and cars that even they will talk to each other.

A decade to investigate, with another exponential leap to revolutionize

As we approach 2030, we will begin to see the improvements that 6G will offer us, with new mobile network infrastructures capable of operating in terahertz (THz), jumping directly from the current megahertz (MHz) spectra to the gigahertz (GHz) used by 5G mmWave from United States.

The proposed spectra ranges for 6G communications they would operate between 300 GHz and 3 THz, a radical change that will force a refocusing of networks on microcells, but which points to much higher capacities in the network to operate with an exponentially greater number of connected devices, also increasing the bandwidths up to terabits with microsecond latencies.

6G Revolution

The differences in the radio spectrum used by each mobile generation.

The change would be absolutely radical, but we will need more research than ever to develop new technologies more advanced waveforms, modulation techniques, coding, channels, architectures and, as mentioned, different network topologies and schedules that allow this jump to terahertz, massive MIMO and a holographic radio that still looks like something from another planet to us.

It is in fact foreseen this photonics-based approach, with AI as the key for the deployment of these smart grids that will automatically optimize specific carriers for each need, increasing the quality of service and improving energy management, but complicating connectivity very much from the mobile device part, which will require better channels and direct vision with the microcells as well as a much more optimized energy efficiency.

After the development of so much technological innovation, there should be key actors such as Huawei or Docomo, which have already been announced, but also AT&T, SK Telecom, ZTE, Nokia, Samsung, Ericsson, Qualcomm, China Mobile and many more, so some very interesting years await us.

6G Revolution

Endless applications for a 'tera' connectivity that will revolutionize our economy more than ever.

Applications and promises of 6G, above what we can understand today

It is true that whenever we talk about future technology we imagine that world of flying cars and undetectable robots that the cinema has presented us for decades, but this time we do It is confirmed that there are certain expected applications on the 6G that we do not even understand to this day, and it is that we speak for example of a HoloPortation difficult to explain.

They say in the studio that advanced compression techniques and 6G architecture should allow us to transmit high resolution holograms through our phones, in a technology of "Holotransport" that will extend those new augmented realities and it will transform current forms of communication.

The huge bandwidths of terabits they will also allow us download or stream ultra-high resolution images and videos in seconds, which will allow us to send these holographic communications from wireless links in real time in something that it should look like an evolved video call towards the three-dimensional. Have you ever thought about the Jedi council meetings in Star Wars?

6G Revolution

Holotransport? Many things seem very far, but this industry you already know that it flies.

These 3D holograms, according to the study, would occupy tens of gigapixels in size and require these terabits-per-second (Tbps) speed so they can become a reality.

Not only that, and it is that microsecond latencies would unlock real-time touch applications such as collaborative remote surgeries with "zero-lag"as well as remote control of machines in hazardous work, control of robots in rescue and much more.

Some also speak of the possibility of create high resolution digital cufflinks, which will allow us to access with our avatars a parallel digital world, mixed reality devices and even video game environments using virtual reality, in real time and with other players.

It certainly seems that 6G will come to revolutionize our lives, or at least it does promise much more compared to the 5G that we already know, and that bases the improvement on the lower latency, the greater capacity and the possibility of creating networks machine-to-machine to serve as a starting base for autonomous cars, networks of collaborative robots in industry, video games and content in streaming from anywhere and surely many more options that we still do not know.

It seems that the 'TeraEconomy' will be a reality sooner rather than later, and although there is a lot of work ahead, we will be here to tell you how mobile connectivity is going to revolutionize our lives!

Although 5G is not yet a standard, we already know what will be the advances of its successor, 6G
