LG Electronics successfully conducted a 6G data transmission utilizing terahertz (THz) spectrum last week, adding to its expertise in the next-generation communication technology, the company said in a statement.
The Korean government plans to spend 220 billion won ($194 million) by 2025 on the research and development of 6G network technology, vowing to ensure the early deployment of the next-generation network via partnership especially with the U.S.
Samsung Electronics conducted a 6G test with the University of California, Santa Barbara, the Korean company announced Wednesday.
Most people with smartphones can guess what 6G will be. But what are open interfaces in radio access network, otherwise known as Open RAN? Or quantum technology?
Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong called a meeting on Wednesday to check the development of next-generation technologies including 6G networking technology and artificial intelligence (AI).
With the coronavirus driving digitization, the conversation has already shifted to the futuristic 6G network, even though its predecessor 5G is still just a pipe dream in many parts of the world.
With the hoopla over fifth-generation wireless technology barely subsided, Korea is now girding itself for 6G.
LG Electronics will partner with KAIST and the Korea Research Institute of Standards (Kriss) to delve into the research and development of sixth-generation wireless technology, or 6G.
Samsung Electronics expects the standardization of sixth-generation technology for wireless networks, or 6G, to be completed as early as 2028, followed by mass commercialization in 2030.
