While operators from dozens of countries are actively engaged in the implementation of fifth-generation networks, and electronics manufacturers are releasing 5G versions of smartphones, Huawei has begun developing network solutions for the 6G standard. The partners of the Chinese tech giant from different parts of the world also take part in the work, and experts have already announced the launch date of the “mobile Internet of the future”.
Huawei is working directly with 13 leading research institutes. The technological base of the telecommunications giant is located in Ottawa (Canada). According to preliminary estimates by analysts, the commercial launch of the sixth generation networks will take place no earlier than 2030. During this time, operators and manufacturers of telecommunications equipment should prepare for the development of networks with a throughput of up to 1 Tbit/s.
Earlier, network sources reported the beginning of similar studies at Samsung, whose engineers also began to develop 6G equipment. Nokia, Ericsson and SK Telekom announced plans to take an active part in building sixth-generation networks. All three companies entered into a strategic partnership agreement for the development of 6G networks.
