LG became successful in testing 6G with massive transfer speeds

LG conducted its tests outdoors at a distance of 320 meters at the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI) in Berlin, Germany on September 7. The transmission took place in the 155-175 GHz frequency range and LG says it is a significant step towards the commercialization of 6G in urban areas in the future.

The company and its partners used a custom 20dBm multi-channel power amplifier for transmission and received through a low-noise amplifier that improved the quality of the incoming signal. Dr. Kim Byoung-hoon, CTO and EVP of LG Electronics said:

With the success of our latest demonstration, we are one step closer to realizing 6G speeds of 1 terabit (TB) per second in indoor and outdoor urban areas. We expect 6G to be a major driver of future business and new user experiences, and there’s no place we’d rather be than at the forefront of its development.

On paper, 6G should be able to deliver ten times lower latency and 50 times faster data rates with higher reliability compared to 5G networks. For example, mmWave 5G, which is available for commercial use, can provide peak speeds of 3 Gbps, but the theoretical maximum is 5 Gbps. This means we can expect peak speeds of around 150 Gbps from 6G networks.

However, 6G is not expected to arrive anytime soon. The telecom giants expect the next-generation network technology to be standardized by 2025, with commercialization expected by 2029.
