6G promises over 1tb/s communication speed

6G's potential requires more than technological innovation.

The emergence of 6G technology promises to surpass 5G's capabilities significantly, offering superior connectivity and data processing speeds exceeding one terabyte per second.

Saurabh Daga, Associate Project Manager of Disruptive Tech at GlobalData, emphasised its potential to transform various sectors and the critical role of international collaboration in its standardisation.

According to Daga, 6G represents a significant leap from its predecessor, boasting speeds exceeding one terabyte per second and extremely low latency. This advancement not only facilitates rapid downloads but also enables innovative applications like real-time holographic communication and the integration of AI into everyday devices. 

"6G takes communication to a whole new level," Daga said.

The implications of 6G extend far beyond improved communication speeds. Daga pointed out that 6G aims to revolutionise industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, media, entertainment, and transportation. 

He painted a picture of a future where remote surgeries are conducted with unprecedented accuracy and factories operate autonomously with real-time monitoring. The technology's integration with augmented reality could alter how people interact with their surroundings, leading to immersive gaming experiences and virtual tourism opportunities.

One of the most significant impacts of 6G, according to Daga, could be in the automotive sector, which is poised for transformative advancements in autonomy and safety due to 6G's low latency. 

"The automotive sector looks to have the highest transformation capability through 6G," Daga noted, referencing data from GlobalData's patent database.

However, the realisation of 6G's potential requires more than technological innovation. Daga stresses the importance of international collaboration in the development and standardisation of 6G technology.

Countries that are currently leading in research and development, such as the US, China, and South Korea, may have a competitive edge, but Daga believes that international cooperation is crucial for seamless deployment and interoperability worldwide. 

He highlights ongoing multinational projects in countries like Canada and Sweden as examples of the collaborative efforts needed to advance 6G technology.
