Chinese tech giant Huawei has already started working on 6G, the next generation of mobile networks after 5G, claims company CEO, Ren Zhengfei.
5G is presently believed as the next generation of mobile communication, providing super-fast data speeds being important to new technologies like self-driving cars. While most counties in the world are still waiting for 5G, Huawei CEO Ren Zhengfei claims that the company is already doing research on 6G.
As per reports, Huawei has been working on 6G along with 5G. However, the development of 6G is still underway and has a long way to go before it becomes a reality. The technology is still 10 years away as there are a lot of other things that need to be taken care of.
Before a new mobile network generation can commercialize, standards need to be set by the industry. This has already happened in 5G’s case and discussions are ongoing for 6G, but standards can take years to form. It is also unclear what 6G will be used for.
The company is currently focusing its efforts and resources on 5G deployment. It has signed more than 50 commercial 5G contracts, more than its closest competitors Nokia and Ericson.
