Although many Western countries continue to watch 5G’s Huawei with extreme skepticism, not to mention concern, the Chinese giant certainly does not sit idle. We have known for some time now that the company is working on 6G connectivity, all while there diffusion of 5G is still in fits and starts and an important portion of the population is convinced that it represents a health problem.
6G will reach speeds of 1000 Gbps
During the eighteenth edition of the Global Analyst Confercence, Eric Xu, temporary president of Huawei, has mentioned some plans of the company related to 6G. According to the company’s roadmap, next-generation connectivity is expected to start in 2030. Eric stressed that Huawei’s strategy partly follows the one already seen with 5G: outclass the competition with top-level technologies offered at very competitive prices.
In short: if Huawei is already the undisputed leader of 5G networks today, it is doing everything to continue to be so even at the launch of 6G. Speaking then of some technical characteristics of the 6G, Cui Baoguo, saw president of the School of Information to Tsinghua University, said the top speed will be equal to 1000 Gbps, with an estimated latency of 0.1 milliseconds. If so, 6G would be around 50 times faster than 5G while latency would be around 1/10 of that of 5G.
The path that will lead us towards 6G is still long and rather smoky, with the most important companies in the sector waiting for Huawei to publish the reference information document about the potential use cases of 6G.
