When you are finally able to focus your thoughts on 5G and understand the difference between millimeter waves below 6GHz and mmWave radio waves and know why low latency is better than high latency.
Samsung gives you Threw a machete and released a “white paper” about 6G. The “white paper” should make it easier for the public to understand a complex issue.
Samsung says it is the right time to prepare for 6G
The title of the paper is “The Next Hyperconnected Experience for All,” and the company’s goal is to bring 6G “to every corner of life.
Samsung believes that the 6G standard will be completed in 2028, and large-scale commercialization will begin two years later. Although 5G is based on performance goals, Samsung said that to make 6G services available.
It must meet three requirements: For example, to be called 6G, the download data speed must be no less than 1,000 Gbps.
In contrast, Open Signal said that in the United States, Verizon currently has the fastest average 5G download data speed, only 500Mbps. When using 6G, the waiting time is expected to be less than 100 microseconds or one-tenth of the waiting time at 5G.
Samsung said that by 2030, the number of connected devices (500 billion) will be 59 times greater than the total population (8.5 billion). Mobile devices will include AR glasses, VR headsets, and holographic devices.
These screens will be connected to 6G networks, and these networks will be built for machines, not people. The main users of 6G will be machines, and Samsung’s report states:
- The human eye’s capabilities are limited to a maximum resolution of 1/150° and viewing angles of 200 degrees (azimuth) and 130 degrees (zenith).
- On the other hand, the machine vision function is not constrained by these restrictions because it can utilize many cameras with various functions.
- Considering such high machine performance, the performance requirements of 6G systems may be very high for related service scenarios.
Samsung said that 6G will help the world by solving social problems through its ultra-connectivity.
The widespread deployment of 6G will reduce the differences in regional and social infrastructure and economic opportunities, thereby providing alternatives for rural population outflows, large-scale urbanization and the problems that ensue.
All in all, we hope that 6G mobile communications will… Make a great contribution to us. The quality and opportunities of human life.
The white paper discusses technologies that cannot be used due to the limitations of today’s technology.
Truly Immersive XR, which combines AR, VR, and mixed reality, will become an important tool for entertainment, medicine, science, education, and manufacturing.
But current mobile devices do not have the processing power and battery capacity currently required.
High-fidelity mobile holograms will require data speeds hundreds of times faster than 5G transmission speeds. Even in the case where the peak data speed of 5G is 20Gbps, a faster rate is needed, and 6G will be able to achieve this goal.
Besides, a full-size human hologram requires a large number of pixels. The document also mentions digital copies. Samsung explains what this means:
- With advanced sensors, artificial intelligence, and communication technology.
- It will be possible to replicate physical entities in the virtual world, including people, devices, objects, systems, and even places.
- These are called digital twins, Users will be able to interact with them using VR devices or holographic displays.
Samsung said that advances in technology have enabled the formulation of a new generation of wireless standards to be completed within eight years of the past 15 years.
The report said that as soon as next year, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) will begin to work on its 6G vision.
Considering that 5G is not yet complete, you might think this is a completely crazy topic. The company explained in its conclusion that this is the right time to start preparing for 6G.
