In addition to 5G, the fifth generation of mobile networks. This is the exercise that the Chinese manufacturer Long live comes in a new report. There, the world’s fifth-largest smartphone maker explores the possibilities of a world of hundreds of billions of connected devices. until 2030 as 6G.
We are facing a new area of opportunity: sensory integration and communication, according to Vivo. An era in which 6G mobile data connectivity services will optimize capacity, data frequency, latency and reliability worldwide. Until then, the focus should be on research and development.
Reconfigurable smart surface and new waveforms are key challenges
Vivo Communications Research Institute has published its third white paper on 6G. Titled “Building a Free Connected Physical and Digital Integrated World: 6G Services, Capabilities and Enabling Technologies”.
The report explores the 6G framework and potential technologies that vivo experts believe will help shape people’s lives beyond 2030. Thus, enabling the convergence of the digital and physical worlds and impacting our future realities, 6G services will require new system architecture designs.
The white paper proposes that 6G offers super communication. In practice, information and computing services are converging, combining communication, computing and sensory in a single system.
In this way, an integrated 6G network will not only connect humans with humans, but also connect humans to machines and machines with machines. In other words, help create a new digital world.
Hundreds of billions of devices are expected to be connected by 2030, Vivo itself points out.
Services and capabilities: creating a new digital dimension with 6G
According to Vivo, 6G technology will expand basic telecommunications services to support completely new experiences. Among these we will have possibilities such as immersive mixed reality and holographic and multisensory communication.
Also, 6G mobile data connectivity services will continue to improve in terms of capacity, data rate, latency, reliability and many other aspects. They will therefore have to be optimized several times compared to 5G.
Enabling technologies for truly ubiquitous connectivity beyond 5G
However, there are several challenges to overcome. New network functions will be required to support new 6G services. Since 6G will converge mobile and computer networks, cross-domain data interaction, and native AI networks. This requires an entirely new system architecture design to implement.
In practice, the integration of sensors and communication tools opens up a new field of opportunity in wireless networks. There, 6G native AI would improve network and air interface efficiency, increase system flexibility and reduce costs.
At the same time, the introduction of an end-to-end transversal data plane is essential to support intelligent and basic information services. Low-power communication reduces the barrier to terminal access, enabling truly ubiquitous connectivity.
Currently, the evolution of Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) technology, Reconfigurable Intelligent Surface (RIS) technology and new waveforms are some of the research areas that will pave the way for a more efficient and flexible, says the report. .
In short, we have a long way to go until 2030 and until the global possibilities of 6G networks can be realized. However, given such potential, Vivo is among the companies already focused on this long-term goal.
