The production of devices of modern technology are largely governed by economic factors. Each generation of a product seems to have a noticeable difference that is directly related to its economic factor, not only in terms of the cost of the product, but also in terms of components quality and product effectiveness. One of the key points that can be noticed about the current generation of technological products is that, they are always focused towards the extremes of capabilities that the current possibilities offer, be it the small size, high end specifications or capabilities beyond one’s imagination. Same is the case with AI products. This drastic improvement can be noticed if you compare the first version of the computer which was a humongous device that occupied an entire room where two people could live.
Even today, we follow this pattern of development. The development of the 6G technology is progressing like a race among tech giants such as Nokia, Ericsson, Huawei, Samsung, LG, Apple etc. Countries like China, South Korea and Japan have also expressed their interest in this technology at a time when 5G itself is not completely rolled out.
Researchers already working on the 6G wireless data transmission technology are expecting high speed PV conversions by utilizing the principles of photoscience. The integration of wireless transmission lines in fiberglass networks result in high performance data networks, and pair the receiver antenna directly with the fiberglass.
The concept, explained by the researchers, will greatly reduce the technical complexity of future radio base stations and enable Tera Hertz connections with very high data rates – several hundred gigabits per second will be made possible. The integration of wireless links in fibre optic networks is key to high-performance data networks: future cellular networks will consist of many small radio cells that can be connected by high-performance THz transmission links. In the receiver, THz signals can be converted directly to light signals with the help of high-speed plasmonic rates and transmitted over fiberglass networks.
The technology assumes that future wireless networks in the sixth generation, consisting of a number of small radio cells to transfer large amounts of data quickly and efficiently, will be connected to transmission lines, which can handle tens or even hundreds of gigabits per second per link. The frequencies needed are in the Tera Hertz range, i.e. between microwaves and infrared in the electromagnetic spectrum. In addition, wireless transmission paths must be seamlessly connected to fiberglass networks.
In this way, the advantages of both technologies, i.e. high capacity and reliability, as well as mobility and flexibility, will be combined.
Sixth-generation technology, based on an economic vision, also assumes that future wireless data networks should reach higher transmission rates and shorter delays, with an increasing number of peripherals, just as we find in virtual infrastructure technology in the computer world, where central computer transmission rates are characterized by high-speed data transmission capabilities.
6G aims to achieve much higher transmission rates, shorter delays, and increased device density, with the integration of artificial intelligence, 6G networks will be broadband cellular networks, and the service area will be divided into small geographic areas called “cells”. It can be stated that 6G technology will become a reality and commercially available in the near future.
