Huawei will have a major lead in the Research and Development globally for the new technology by launching satellites for the 6G verification
Although the deployment of 5G infrastructure is still limited to developed countries online while developing nations are working towards it, 5G technology has now gone mainstream when it comes to offering support on consumer electronics like smartphones. Companies have now started working on the next-generation technology – 6G as 5G communication technology has reached the milestone. The Chinese giant Huawei, one of the leaders in this segment is now moving towards the next step.
Report coming from China, citing Chang’an Shumajun as source who has close ties to Huawei, says together with partnership of two Chinese companies in July 2021, Huawei is all set to launch two satellites, as it aims to verify the 6G network technologies that the company has developed.
Huawei will have a major lead in the Research and Development globally for the new technology by launching satellites for the 6G verification. The launch will be a joint effort from Huawei, China Mobile, and a national space firm. For China’s core technologies such as networking and switching, this will have a great significance.
The new technology will be 50 times after than 5G, as per believed by experts. Compared with the construction of 5G networks that rely on base stations to transmit signals, 6G networks, conveying higher frequencies, need using satellite for communications instead of base stations where there will be low penetrability.
Xu Zhijun, rotating chairman of Huawei, announced earlier this month that the tech giant will launch its 6G networks in 2030, and it will release a 6G related white paper soon to explain to the industry what the technology is.
When it comes to the 5G footprint around the world, China is the leader and is likely to have a further lead with the new development efforts.
