Samsung said that it will bring 6G: holograms, augmented reality and remote medicine
Samsung has published an official document about 6G technology, in which it spoke about the record speeds that are waiting for us in 2028.
Although the introduction of 5G is underway at an accelerated pace, the technology is only available in large cities in technologically developed countries. However, Samsung will not wait for the full implementation of 5G to start developing 6G. Last year, we learned that the company is expanding its research into 6G. Now it has published an official document to offer its vision of the possibilities of 6G networks.
In an official document, the company predicts that we will see a quick launch of the new standard before the end of the decade. This will generally correspond to the gap between 4G and 5G.
"For 6G, we expect ITU-R will begin their work to define a 6G vision in 2021. Taking into account the trend of speeding up of development of technical standards for each new generation, we expect that the completion of the 6G standard and its earliest commercialization could happen as early as 2028, while massive commercialization may occur around 2030." - Samsung said.
What to expect from 6G
Samsung says speed, latency, and reliability are the main improvements in the transition from 5G to 6G.
"While 5G was designed to achieve 20 Gbps peak data rate, in 6G, we aim to provide the peak data rate of 1,000 Gbps, and a user experienced data rate of 1 Gbps," the company explains.
Samsung believes that the signal delay in 6G will be less than ten milliseconds. In addition, we are expected to see a 10-fold improvement in the reliability of delay-sensitive services (such as remote surgery, emergency response) compared to 5G.
Where can I use 6G?
The South Korean company also sees several options for using this technology. The first is a truly exciting Augmented Reality (AR / VR / mixed reality). Samsung claims that streaming AR to an 8K display currently requires 55.3 Mbps, while “really exciting” AR requires 0.44 Gbps. At the same time, streaming 16K resolution VR content requires 0.9 Gb/s, which modern 5G connections cannot offer.
Two other uses of the 6G offered by Samsung include high-precision holograms and Digital Replica / Digital Twin technologies for copying people, devices, places, and more. According to the company, a high-precision human-size hologram requires a speed of several Tbit/s.
Samsung also suggests that the 6G can be built with AI capabilities in mind, saying that AI can reduce power consumption, predict and fix network problems.
It is clear that the implementation of 6G is still far away, but Samsung is not the only company working on this technology. Ericsson, Huawei, and Xiaomi are just some of the pioneers of the sixth generation of cellular communications. Over time, their number will only grow, bringing the future described by Samsung closer.
