The firm was at the forefront of the 5G deployment in 2019, as a leader in smartphone manufacturing and network deployment.
Huawei, however, suffered from trade restrictions in its areas of operations.
Initiated by the United States for suspicion of espionage for the benefit of Beijing.
The accusations have tarnished the image of the firm in many Western countries, which have also blacklisted the brand's equipment in the development of their 5G networks, for fear of threat to their national security.
However, the firm has strong intellectual property in telecommunications and is already looking to the future.
She intends to put her knowledge to good use in developing 6G.
This project is essential for China, which had already launched a research group on this technology in 2019. In this race for the network, it is already well advanced and has also launched a 6G satellite in space to study data exchange with the earth.
Everything in its time
According to the Chinese channel CGTN, the 6G network could reach 1TB per second, a speed 50x higher than 5G. In addition, the latency is greatly reduced, of the order of 0.1 ms. The technology would also make it possible, among other things, to maintain a stable connection in high-speed objects, such as fighter planes. This faster connection will also respond to the growing use of connected objects, as well as more advanced uses of the Internet of Things (IoT).
However, this announcement does not yet state the devices that will be necessary to deploy a new network of the scale of 6G, while strong criticism has been raised for several years against the deployment of 5G. If the latter allows notorious technological feats, its detractors point the finger at the multiplication of antennas to compensate for the high frequency and the short range of the waves, but also their damage to health during long telephone exposures, as well as the increased energy consumption. that results from its use.
Regardless, the adoption of 5G is not yet widespread and its uses are still in their infancy.
Europe has also entered its “digital decade” and intends, among other things, to deploy 5G in all populated areas by 2030. But in the race for the network, like China and the United States. United, the EU is not losing sight of 6G and is already working on it.
