It will be 50 times faster than 5G and run at 1 terabit per second

At the moment everything is quite technical and above all theoretical, but Samsung has big plans for a new 6G generation where it wants to be a pioneer.

In the consumer electronics industry and mobile devices, Samsung has become brighter than ever, and in this sense of positivity and innovation, it seems that the Suon giant wants to anticipate some of the promising future that some 6G networks will bring to Samsung.

As it is understood that Sunghun Choi, Executive Vice President and Director of Samsung Research’s Center of Investigation of Advanced Communications, is currently presenting a blank version of the 6G with its first advances with its investigation, which is part of Samsung’s “border” border. .

The 6G network will officially welcome the “Terabit” revolution.

Samsung’s ambition and involvement are important, because with the fall of Huawei, the holotransport, blockchain and many autonomous robots that we promised in the near future have been suspended, waiting for new players and new offers for future connections.

Now Samsung is taking the initiative, and in fact everything seems as promising as expected from the beginning:

We started our journey long ago to understand, develop and standardize 6G communication technology. We are committed to taking the lead and sharing our discoveries in spreading our vision to bring the next hyper-connected experience to every corner of life. Sunghun Choi, Vice President and Director of Samsung Research.

It will be the 6G revolution: holotransport, blockchain and many autonomous robots

How to understand the spectrum of 6G communication, and its requirements

The first thing Samsung explained to us in its documentation was that 6G would require ultra-wide and adjacent bandwidth, ranging from hundreds of MHz to ten GHz, which would allow it to offer new high-end services like high-speed holography. . Really immersed communication, fidelity or augmented reality.

All of these services require extremely high speeds, minimal delays, and large amounts of data transmission, so improving coverage is always another big requirement to offer the best connection quality.

Thus, Samsung’s offer can only be considered for all the bands available for 6G, the medium band 1-24 GHz from the spectrum below 1 GHz and the maximum band between 24 and 300 GHz.

The white paper highlights the need for coexistence of 5G and 6G networks and the importance of restructuring existing bands used for 3G, 4G and 5G, as well as ensuring new exclusive bands for the next generation. . Spectrum

The cover of Samsung’s ‘White Book’ includes a presentation of research on 6G.

A lot of progress for a Samsung that leads to change

Without going into too many technical details, where Samsung has apparently focused on completing the “white paper” with its research, the fact is that the South Korean giant has already made some interesting advances in 6G candidate technology. Particularly in the case of sub–THz in-band communications (in the range of 92 to 300 GHz), duplex and cross-duplex communications, and the implementation of AI for non-linearity compensation and power saving.

Samsung tells us speeds of up to 1 terabit per second (Tbps) that will be about 50 times faster than what is offered by 5G networks, have already been successfully tested in the laboratory up to 12 Gbps at a distance of 30 meters.

Other technologies such as RIS beams and carriers are advancing to improve sharpness, being able to reflect wireless signals to the desired direction with new metamaterials, as well as increasing the propagation distance with interdivision duplex (XDD) using self-cancellation. – Interference at the base station.

Many advances have already been tested by Samsung under laboratory conditions, although it is clear that it will take at least the end of the decade to complete its development and standardization.

Samsung says 6G technology should provide a full-duplex connection with simultaneous transmission and data receiving using the same frequency, which Samsung has already tested in the mmWave band at a lab distance of 100 meters.

Regarding artificial intelligence, Suon is working with the implementation of new AI-NC and AI-ES, which in the first case seeks to compensate for signal distortion, greatly improves coverage and, in the second case, automatic adjustment of parameters to control switching. Turning on and off rooms selected according to traffic load, looking for cost improvement in both terminal and base stations.

Everything is pretty technical and theoretical right now, though Samsung has warned that they will continue to report on their progress in upcoming events, even showing future 6G connectivity pilots … Did anyone say that at Mobile World Congress 2023?

In the electronics and mobile phone industry, Samsung is even brighter than before
