While talking about the 5G technology, there is no doubt that Chinese companies are already in a leading position globally, and Huawei's performance in the 5G field is particularly eye-catching.
As of 2020, Huawei has filed nearly 7,000 5G patent applications, ranking first globally.
In contrast, the construction of 5G networks in the United States is relatively slow. The US technology giant Google's CEO Eric Schmidt said that China's 5G development is already 10 times ahead of the United States.
To maintain its technological dominance, the United States intends to seize the opportunity on the 6G network. In October 2020, the United States announced the formation of the 6G alliance and invited many telecommunications companies such as Apple, Ericsson, and Samsung. Huawei, who was not invited, seemed to have anticipated the United States' small actions and chose to deploy 6G technology in advance.
According to Huawei's news, before the popularization of 5G, Huawei's laboratory in Ottawa, Canada, has already begun to develop 6G network technology in 2019.
On April 12, Huawei once again announced the latest progress in 6G research and development. At the 18th Huawei Global Analyst Conference, Huawei's rotating chairman Xu Zhijun said that with 5G significantly ahead of its competitors, Huawei has already Prepare for the next 10 years in advance and has begun the research and development of 6G technology first.
Moreover, Xu Zhijun also stated that Huawei would introduce its 6G network to the market around 2030. At the same time, Huawei will release a 6G white paper soon, telling all walks of life what 6G is.
From the current point of view, 5G networks have not yet achieved widespread popularity, and the advantages brought by 5G are also emerging. For ordinary people, the changes brought by 6G networks are even more confusing.
Although we don't know what changes 6G will bring to life, referring to the development of 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G, network speeds are becoming faster and faster. When transitioning from 5G to 6G will significantly improve the network speed.
Regarding the network speed brought by 6G, Cui Baoguo, deputy dean of the School of Information of Tsinghua University, once predicted that the network speed of 6G would be 50 times that of 5G reach 1000Gbps. In terms of network delay, the delay of the 6G network is only ten times that of 5G. One part, below 100us.
And high speed and low latency are just subsidiary products of 6G. Experts say that the 6G network will bring a fully connected world where ground wireless and satellite communications integrate.
It means that 6G networks can achieve seamless coverage through satellite communications, wider than 5G networks. Many uninhabited areas can also achieve full coverage of network signals.
Simultaneously, with the support of multiple advantages, 6G will have a broader application scenario, especially artificial intelligence, which will be more widely used.
We can see that the development of the 6G network is still worth looking forward to, but the current 6G network is still in the experimental stage. I believe that with Huawei's efforts, 6G should come out soon.
