The first important step for the 6G mobile network

A new generation of 5G mobile networks is here and quite a few countries are fighting for first place in the global 5G technology development market. Not surprisingly, it is increasingly accessible to users of mobile telephony services and brings them many benefits, especially in the form of faster data transfer and download. Of course, this is also true for our country, as Telekom Slovenije took care of it.

Although the 5G mobile network is not yet fully operational, many companies and research institutes are already focusing their efforts on developing a new 6G mobile network. This is expected to come to life as early as 2028, meaning it will already be available for commercial use. However, it will be available to ordinary users around 2030, which means that it will be affordable to a wider population around the world. However, if there are problems in the commercialization of the 5G mobile network, the 6G network could appear in the next few years.

The first important step towards a 6G mobile network, however, was recently taken by researchers at South Korea’s Kyungpook National University. Namely, they made a dedicated transistor called HEMT (High-Electron-Mobility Transistor), which is really something special. It can operate at a frequency of up to 738 gigahertz, which is more than 30 gigahertz more than the previous record. Higher frequencies are expected to be the key to building a new mobile network, but they could also be used to build more powerful computer systems, including the increasingly popular quantum computers.

Many experts believe that the 6G mobile network could provide data transfer speeds of up to one terabyte per second. This actually means that at least theoretically, you could download as many as 142 hours of 4K video in one second, which is completely unimaginable today. The delay time should be less than 100 milliseconds. Artificial intelligence is expected to play an important role in the operation of 6G mobile networks. It is supposed to take care of the management of new technology and to ensure fast data transfer.
