The world of technology travels fast, we know it well: of 5G the first phase of implementation has just begun that is already thought of the next generation, the 6G.

Samsung has recently published a white paper entitled “The Next Hyper-Connected Experience for All” which, precisely, aims to outline the vision of the company for the next generation communication system

The white paper covers various aspects of 6G, including technical and social megatrends, new services, requirements, candidate technologies and a timeline for standardisation.

Samsung’s vision for 6G, in short, is to bring the next hyper-connected experience into every aspect of life.

To accelerate research for 6G, Samsung Research, the advanced research and development hub within Samsung Electronics’ SET Business, founded its Advanced Communications Research Center in May last year.

According to Sungyun Choi, Head of the Advanced Communications Research Center in Samsung, although the marketing of 5G is still in its early stages, it is never too early to start preparing for 6G, because it usually takes about

Sunghyun Choi also explained that Samsung has already started research and development of 6G technologies based on the experience and capabilities that the company has accumulated working on several generations of communication technologies, including 5G.

In the white paper, Samsung expects the completion of the 6G standard and its first marketing period to be in 2028, while mass marketing could take place around 2030.

Among the main users of the 6G will be both humans and machines and 6G will be characterized by the provision of advanced services such as the extended reality (XR) really immersive, the mobile holograms with high fidelity and digital replicas.

While the requirements of 5G focused mainly on performance aspects, Samsung defines three categories of requirements that need to be met to achieve 6G services: performance, architecture and reliability. Examples of 6G performance requirements are: a peak data speed of 1,000 Gbps (gigabits per second) and latency of less than 100 microseconds (μs), 50 times the peak data speed and one tenth of the 5G latency.

The architecture requirements of 6G include solving problems arising from limited mobile device computing capacity, as well as the implementation of artificial intelligence from the early stage of technology development and the possibility of flexible integration of new network entities. The reliability requirement addresses security and privacy issues arising from the widespread use of user data and artificial intelligence technologies.

White paper also introduces candidate technologies that could be essential to meet the requirements for 6G. Among these, use of terahertz frequency band (THz), new antenna technologies to improve high frequency band coverage, advanced duplex technologies, evolution of network topology, spectrum sharing to increase efficiency of the network,

The white paper on 6G can be downloaded from Samsung Research’s website, where information on the latest innovations of the company in the field of communications technology is also published.
