5G mobile network has started in India only last month. It is expected to take about 2 to 3 years to expand across the country. Compared to the rest of the world, especially China, it is moving very fast in this. Work on 6G has started in China. Chinese company ZTE has announced that it has started research on 6G in search of amazing network speed of 1 million Gigabits. The company has said that it is committed to investing in new innovations and R&D in technology.
According to reports, in the year 2022, ZTE has spent 16 billion yuan (about Rs 183 billion) on research. This is about 17 per cent of the company’s operating income during this period. The company believes that 6G is the next big thing in mobile communication. However, its development is in its initial stage.
ZTE’s aim is to come forward in the development of 6G. The company will focus on R&D employees. He says that R&D strategy is the important basis of this enterprise development. The company is spending around 10 per cent of its operating income on R&D. It says that it will continue its efforts for the development of 6G technology.
It has been estimated that by the year 2030, 6G network may start in the world. ZTE is not the only one working on it. Many big companies are engaged in 6G testing. Recently LG has succeeded in this. The South Korean technology giant has successfully tested wireless transmission and reception of 6G terahertz (THz) data in the frequency range of 155 to 175 gigahertz (Ghz) over a distance of 320 metres.
India is also moving in this direction. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the country is preparing to introduce 6G services by the end of this decade. PM Modi made this announcement while addressing the ‘Smart India Hackathon 2022’ Grand Finale. Japan, South Korea and the US are working fast on 6G.
