In France, the fifth generation sparked a heated political debate. However, the new generation of mobile phones has been well launched in France. However, while this new network is not working optimally yet, some are already considering the rest.
This is exactly the case with China, which is considering 6G implementation. An industrial body backed by the government of the Middle Kingdom has published a white paper on the subject. It highlights the contributions of this new technology and in particular from the point of view of the speed that can reach ten times the 5G networks.
Europe is also trying to move forward on this issue
Very ambitious in terms of research, China hopes to launch this technology commercially by 2030 in order to overtake the United States on this issue. By taking the lead, the idea is also to be one step ahead of the potential economic impacts of 6G. The innovations mentioned in this white paper are significant, particularly in relation to 3D communication, sensory connectivity or even intelligent interactive communication.
Note that China is far from the only country that has tried to move forward on this topic. We know, for example, that Europe has not been excluded from the Hexa-X research project that Nokia will lead. The French companies Orange and Atos are also joining this initiative. Ambition is defining Practical cases and unique 6G scenarios, developing core 6G technologies and defining a new architecture for a smart matrix that integrates core 6G enablers ».
from his side, Samsung has also done a lot. The South Korean tech giant is selling a dream and hopes 6G will debut in 2028, before mass marketing is set for 2030. The company believes speeds could peak at 1,000 Gbit/s, and a response time of 100 microseconds. Finally, from the point of view of uses, the company cites the example of broadcasting in VR at 16K.
