Samsung Begins 6G Wireless Research Center

Samsung has created the Advanced Communications Research Center to start research into 6G wireless.

6G will use machine learning for intelligent capacity and routing management and could yield speeds up to 1TB.

6G aims to integrate satellites for global coverage to provide far high data rates and faster Internet speeds than 5G.

  1. Yeah, we ran into that with Ubiquit radio links, the only way we can get good internet to where we are at. 900MHz cuts through the trees well but only gives 20Mbps. 2.4GHz gives much higher, potentially, but can’t cut through the trees. We had to cut through the trees with a chainsaw instead. 🙂 I don’t think 5G nor 6G will help us. Can’t wait for Starlink!

  2. Serious stuff! Can’t even imagine what people will do with all that bandwidth. I imagine we will find out, at least to an extent.

  3. Did you change your user name again? Tiny lice have developed specialty in sucking blood and still stay in hiding up to a level of changing their user again and again so they can like their own comments.

  4. You hear about people afraid of radiation, you realize going outside for less than an hour doses you with weeks worth of 5g radio wave radiation. People need to stop being manipulated by these conspiracy theorists and their buzzwords!

  5. We are vibratory beings.
    We have no understanding yet how different types of artificial vibration affects us.

    So honey, are you for or are you against my vibrator?

  6. Terabit per second speeds would require frequencies in the multiple THz. Waves that short that can’t pass though walls so would only be suitable for something like Bluetooth or WiFi, WLAN as we know it would be infeasible.

    Also, past a certain point quantization rears its head, as the wavelengths get shorter more and more energy is needed to ensure that enough photons make their way to the receiver for the signal to be complete.

  7. 5G offers 4x the real-world spectral efficiency, better latency and less energy expended per byte.

    So it will do well, because in a competitive environment that means your data bill will drop by almost 4x in cost per MB.

    Another advantage is it will be able to compete with home broadband, lowering prices in that segment as well. That’s very important in markets like the USA that tend to be monopolistic and therefore expensive compared to world costs.

    It will get popular alongside WiFi 6, which has similar improvements and timeframes for supporting equipment.

  8. I know people who develop protocols for extreme file transfer. They can do 10…40 Gbps well without coordination between transmitting servers and are looking forward to begin developing and testing 100 Gbps next year.
    Nobody even has thought of a protocol for Tbps data transmission with non-cooperating transmitters. To develop and mainstream this may be a world-wide work of more than a decade.

  9. Probably works as well as 4G but maximum capacity is higher.
    4G in it self kind of works most of the time like most newer technology.

  10. I assume he means Tbps or Terrabit per second or 1000 Gigabits per second (Gbps), which is crazy high. You would need some total paradigm shifting new application to make serious use of Gbps much less Tbps speeds. You would also have to completely reprice the $/GB or TB.

  11. “TB” is no unit of speed.

    The previous generations of mobile phone tech had used ever smaller wavelengths (after the transition to digital) to get higher bandwidths. 5G has such a short wavelength (and thus extremely short ranges caused by attenuation) that you can’t really go shorter on that.

    You could use some waveform manipulations, but that won’t justify a “6G” moniker. The application would use the same hardware and the same wavelengths, thus the same government licenses.

    5G+ or whatever they will call it will be an incremental improvement.
