Huawei claims 6G network won’t arrive until 2030

“Yang Chaobin, president of Huawei’s 5G product line, claims 6G won’t arrive until 2030 as the industry is active in 5G infrastructure development.” 

At the Boao Forum for Asia 2019 Annual meet, Yang Chaobin, president of Huawei‘s 5G product line, said that 6G network won’t arrive until 2030, leaving a good ten years time frame for 5G to rule the market. Security remains the key focus for 5G standard and operators around the world are currently investing in setting up the 5G infrastructure for commercial operation. Proper development of the 5G network will pave the way for a smooth transition to 6G in the years to come.

Yang Chaobin says that he believes the industry has a certain ideology on the development and capabilities of 5G and what it can achieve. US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has recently opened the “THZ WAVE” frequency for the 6G development. The frequency is in the range of 95GHz to 3 terahertz (THz). The higher frequency will help a larger amount of the data to be transmitted per unit time. The ‘THZ WAVE’ will be open for 6G experiments.

Meanwhile, Huawei has been given clearance to run 5G trials in India back in December by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT). Internationally, Huawei is actively working on 5G and has recently introduced Tiangang, which is the world’s first chipset for 5G base stations and supports 5G network deployment. It claims that Tiangang brings a performance improvement of nearly 2.5 times over its 4G network chipset and will support networks of all standards and bands while making network base stations smaller, more power efficient, and significantly easier to install. With the market still in the early stages of adopting the 5G network, there still seems some time for 6G to come.
