6G: everything you need to know
promiseland in 2030 and have pilot tests in 2026. But above all, it promises multiple improvements in terms of connectivity. We refer to 6Gthe sixth generation of mobile networks that already generates expectations given its characteristics.
the new standard will offer minimal latency, improving the experience in live broadcasts. In addition, this is key to promoting fields such as extended reality and artificial intelligence (AI), optimizing system performance thanks to faster and smoother data traffic
In this article, we will explore the main features and benefits of the next era in mobile connectivity and its main differences with the current standard.
6G: this is the future of mobile
The sixth generation of mobile networks promises transmission rate improvements. But that’s not all: latency will also be reduced (0.1 milliseconds), which will allow, for example, transmissions to be close to real time.
In addition, it promises significant advantages for various industrial sectors, promoting the development of technologies such as extended reality, giving way to truly immersive experiences. It is estimated that the 6G can create experiences that until today we only saw in science fiction, making sensory interfaces viable. For example, through smart or contact lenses, we can feel and see as if we were in reality.
In this way, 6G will improve the experience in industries such as health, promoting telemedicine thanks to extended reality.
This higher speed in data transmission and practically zero latency will make it possible to best audio visual experience and as far as video games are concerned, among other applications linked to daily life.
Thus, thanks to the next generation of mobile connectivity, it will be possible to strengthen or improve processes What:
- Threat detection.
- face recognition.
- Air quality measurement.
- Automation of tasks.
How is it different from 5G?
The main difference is that the sixth generation of mobile connectivity will multiply data transmission rates by up to 10. And, although 5G came to improve on issues such as speed and latency, 6G promises great improvements in both aspects:
- latency: will go from 1 ms to 0.1 ms.
- Speed: the increase will be considerable, going from the current 20 Gbps to 1 Tbps.
6G is expected to be 100 times faster than 5G.
In addition, as it has a greater capacity, it allows more devices to be connected to the same router, something that will impact both the experience at home and in productive environments.
This will be seen in the strengthening of the IoT ecosystemfacilitating the exchange of data practically in real time, speeding up operations and, with it, decision making.
The benefits of this new generation are also related to caring for the environment, since this new generation of mobile connectivity has lower energy consumption. This, because while 5G focused on performance, 6G points to sustainability.
Towards a new era in mobile connectivity
It is estimated that in Spain there are more than 54 million mobile connections. Considering that the population is just over 47 million people, the positive impact that 6G will bring when it lands in our country is evident.
On the one hand, millions of people they will be able to enjoy a high speed connection and performance, improving everyday experiences such as enjoying online content or working from home without browsing problems.
On the other hand, companies will be able to enhance their digital environmentspromoting the automation and strengthening of new workflows.
And although we are just getting used to the arrival of 5G, it is already possible to anticipate the advantages that come from the next generation of mobile connectivity.
