Nokia announced on Monday that it will partner with NTT and its telecommunications subsidiary, DOCOMO, to set standards for the next generation of mobile network, 6G. The news was revealed shortly after first impressions were given by Pekka Lundmark, president of the company.
According to the Finnish brand, the partnership should focus on developing two proof-of-concept concepts for emerging 6G technologies: creation of a network interface with native artificial intelligence (AI) and access to “sub-THz” radio frequencies, that is, much higher spectra than 5G bands.
Emphasizing the priority in analyzing the benefits of AI in 6G and the use of frequencies above 100 GHz, the company states that “these technologies have great potential to improve application flexibility and extend throughput further. 5G without the need to increase power consumption. “
The company believes that Faster data transfers can be achieved with the 140 GHz band. These connections could provide mobile network speeds of up to 100 Gbps under ideal conditions, i.e. 10 times faster than 5G. Samsung is less conservative and believes it can bring rates up to 50 times higher.

Nokia adds that other technologies will be explored in partnership with NTT, including networking concepts such as sensors to enhance the security of corporate private networks; specialized, cognitive and automated architectures; among other innovations.
All analyzes will be performed in laboratories in Japan, home of NTT and DOCOMO, and in Stuttgart, Germany. Tests with the network are expected to start in 2022, and the expectation is that 6G will hit the market in 2030 with a focus on the “industrial metaverse”.

6G is expected to hit the market by 2030 with the expansion of the “industrial metaverse,” says Nokia’s CEO.
6G technology is expected to hit the market by 2030 with the expansion of the industrial metaverse in the technology sector, according to the president and CEO of the telecommunications company Nokia.
He made the prediction this March (25) during a panel discussion in Davos on “Strategic overview of the digital economy”.

Lundmark said that by 2030, the mobile phones we know today will no longer be the most common interface because the physical and digital worlds will grow together, which could lead to users using the virtual reality world to activate a switch. or commandment that will reflect the world, true.
Despite the construction of the 5G network at the moment, quantum computing is ripe for commercial applications, which indicate the proximity of 6G. An industrial metaverse would carry similar patterns, almost identical to what exists in our world.
Alphabet CFO Ruth Parlot was also in the discussion and predicted that people will soon be able to translate conversations instantly with virtual reality lenses.
There is also no standard 6G definition. It wasn’t until late 2018 and early 2019 that telecommunications networks began using 5G technology in the U.S. commercial sector. Lundmark also said that to make the switch to 6G would require more expansive computing resources, including networks that will be a hundred or even a thousand times faster than 5G.
Experts describe 6G as not only a faster technology, but a large-scale generational leap in telecommunications networks, using features such as quantum mechanics and artificial intelligence.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that Samsung has started developing 6G and the network can be 50 times faster than 5G.
