When it comes to technology, change is unique. It took less than a decade for 1G to become 5G, and now it looks like 6G will be the next step towards much larger and faster wireless connections. Over the past twenty years, we have witnessed rapid changes and developments that we could not have imagined. Here’s what you need to know about advanced 6G networks:

The future potential of the sixth generation
Although half the world is still connected via newly built 4G or 5G networks and many parts of the world are still using 3G, it seems too early to start talking about 6G.

Usually, about every ten years, a new network gets attention. 6G networks are likely to be deployed around 2030. Rumors about 6G networks have circulated since experimental work began nearly a decade ago. With new networks hitting the market, it won’t be long before carriers experiment with 6G and mobile phone manufacturers roll out 6G-compatible devices.

6G network benefits
In short, all the improvements that 5G brings will be reflected in the better and better-optimized versions of 6G. Marcus Weldon of Nokia Bell Labs says 6G will combine biology and artificial intelligence to become a sixth sense experience for humans and machines.

6G will continue to support all the advanced technologies 5G networks will already experience, such as more powerful virtual and augmented reality, smart interconnected farms and cities, V2V communications, and intelligent robotic workforce in factories, etc.

6G expands the scope for further innovation by adding a modified layer of greater bandwidth to all of these services. So, 6G brings you one step closer to turning science fiction into reality with immersive VR apps, photorealistic 3D video calling, and more.
