In Japan, 6G Network Transmitted Data at a Speed of 100 Gbit/s

A consortium of companies from Japan has tested the world’s first high-speed wireless device for sixth generation (6G) cellular networks. During the tests, it was possible to achieve data transfer speeds of 100 Gbps over a distance of more than 90 meters, which is at least 10 times the maximum for 5G.

At a speed of 100 Gbps, you can, for example, transmit five HD movies in a second. According to the German company Statista, this is up to 500 times faster than the average speed in the 5G networks of the American telecom operator T-Mobile.

Test results conducted by Japanese companies indicate that the 6G wireless device transmits data at 100 Gbps indoors using the 100 GHz band and outdoors using the 300 GHz band. The device was tested at an altitude of 100 meters.

Commercial use of 5G networks began in 2019. Currently, this standard is the most current wireless communication standard, and its support is implemented in most modern smartphones. The average 5G connection speed on T-Mobile’s 5G networks is 204.9 Mbps, and the theoretically achievable 5G limit is 10 Gbps.

Despite the fact that the implementation of 5G in many countries is still far from complete, scientists are already working on creating the next generation standard. The infrastructure for 6G networks is under development, and commercial use of the standard is expected to begin in the next decade.

The main difference between 5G and 6G is the different frequency ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum used by devices of different standards. Operating in higher ranges usually means much higher speeds. According to 6GWorld, 5G networks typically transmit data in the sub-6GHz band, but it can expand to 40GHz. According to Nokia, 6G networks will use higher frequency bands between 100 GHz and 300 GHz. The use of higher frequency bands not only means higher data transfer rates, but also the need to create a completely new infrastructure for transmitting and amplifying signals.
