The truth is only in words so far
The development of the fifth generation mobile networks is just beginning, but the Chinese are already thinking about 6G technology. The Ministry of Science and Technology of China recently began preparatory work for the development of the future network.
According to some experts, the peak data transfer rate in 6G networks can reach 8000 Gbit / s per second, while the record data transfer rate in fifth-generation networks is about 35 Gbit / s. The real speed in already running 5G networks is much lower.
Dr. Mahyar Shirvanimoghaddam of the University of Sydney said that such a speed would open up entirely new scenarios for the use of the Internet and revolutionize the interaction between people and technology.
China has set up two working groups to oversee 6G research. One of the groups consists of several heads of relevant line ministries. The second group includes several dozen experts from universities, research institutes and technology companies.
Do not think that work on 6G networks started too early, given that 5G networks are in their infancy. Indeed, the development of a new generation of mobile networks takes about 10 years. It was previously announced that 6G networks will be launched in 2030.
