RESEARCH and development of 6G accelerated

Although 5G is not yet fully popular yet, there is a clear path for the development of 6G networks and the future development direction. To seize the initiative in the mobile Internet field in the future, many major countries have also begun to invest heavily in 6G research and development. Among them, Japan announced 50 billion yen in 6G network development, which clearly wants to take the lead in 6G networks; and the US also has the lead in the 6G space.
As for the development of 6G network, China has also made a statement: it should effectively transition in the 5G field and keep getting closer to 6G technology. The China Mobile White Paper on 6G Network Architecture Technology released by China Mobile has been regarded as a milestone in 6G development by the industry. Research results, 6G will present the immersion, wisdom, global and other new development trend, form an immersive cloud XR, holographic communication, sensory interconnection, intelligent interaction, communication perception, pratt & whitney intelligence, digital twin, global coverage and other business applications, will eventually help the human society to achieve “all things at, digital twin” good vision.

6G scenario applications

So, in what scenarios is 6G expected to be used? In fact, as a new generation of mobile communication technology, its related application scenarios will further change the lives of the public. Examples are as follows:
1.Immersive Cloud XR
Extended reality (XR) is a general term for virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR) technologies. XR technology has great potential in the continuous development and exploration. Idealized XR technology requires more advanced hardware, small in size for mobile devices, light in size, and also powerful in computing power. Compared with 5G, 6G transmission speed and delay and other key indicators will be greatly improved, and the improvement of the network will promote XR technology into the era of full immersion.
2. Holographic communication
Holography technology is a technique that uses interference and diffraction principles to record the reflection of an object, transmit the amplitude phase information in the transmitted light wave, and then reproduce the real three-dimensional image of the object. Holographic communication service is a high immersion and multi-dimensional interactive application scenario based on naked-eye holographic technology, which is a business form of high immersion and high natural interaction. With the continuous development of wireless network capability, high-resolution rendering and terminal display equipment, the future holographic information transmission will realize the three-dimensional dynamic interaction between people, objects and their surrounding environment through natural and realistic visual restoration
3.Sensory interconnection
For 2030 and the future, the effective transmission of more sensory information will become a part of the communication means, and sensory interconnection may become the mainstream communication mode in the future, widely used in health, skill learning, entertainment and life, road traffic, office production and emotional interaction.
4. Digital twin
Digital twin, through comprehensive information collection and perception of people and things in the real world, uses digital information to build the corresponding mapping in the virtual world, real-time computing simulation of the real world operation, and effective prediction and intervention of the future through digital computing. For digital twin technology, 6G technology is mainly designed to provide the transmission of super-large capacity and ultra-low latency of data and feedback information for the interaction layer of digital twin, so as to promote the better application of digital twin technology.
5. Accurate positioning
In the future era of everything Zhilian, a large number of vertical industries will need high-precision indoor and outdoor positioning services, such as autonomous driving, trajectory return visit, AR and other applications. However, the traditional satellite positioning and other methods are difficult to meet the needs of the refined intelligent service business. The new positioning technology of 6G network will provide strong support for accurate positioning. The integration of 6G technology with the continuously developing sensing, imaging, and other technologies will lead to a huge number of new applications.
In the era of 2G, 3G, and 4G networks, Qualcomm (QCOM), Intel (INTC), and other enterprises have mastered a large number of core technology patents, and now, the global industry chain-related giants have already fully carried out 6G forward-looking layout. Currently, AAPL.US (AAPL) uses terahertz communication technology to enhance 6G research and development capabilities; Samsung deploys 6G commercialization with a focus on key 6G technologies and has released relevant research reports. WiMi Hologram Cloud(NASDAQ: WIMI), another global technology giant, to further explore investment opportunities in tracks such as holographic interaction and digital twin, and gather new scenarios such as 6G business to establish advantages.
Data show that in the field of 5G network technology, WiMi has carried out research and development and layout early, 5G scene business has been implemented in many fields, once innovative cooperation mode, won the bid for the second phase of mobile and media cloud platform holographic remote interaction project, actively carry out industrial cooperation, and jointly build a 5G prosperous industrial ecosystem. In the international 5G market, WiMi has also applied for a number of core technology patents, and it can be said that WiMi in the 5G field is strong.
6G involves a wide range of fields and technologies. The combination of WiMi’s 6G-oriented technology and 5G technology makes the development of 6G become more orderly. The ideal holographic display should be based on naked eyes. When WiMi relies on 6G network, holographic technology will be integrated into application scenarios such as communication, distance education, office design, social networking and entertainment games, and realize the interaction between projection content and users, and establish an information communication mode with “human experience” as the core. For example, home entertainment uses virtual reality, channel interaction and other technologies to establish a display scene with high display quality and high interaction degree, so that consumption can be highly immersive in home games, virtual sports and other entertainment projects.

In addition, the digital twin virtual world is the simulation and prediction of the physical world, it can accurately reflect and predict the real state of the physical world, the predictive maintenance of the physical world, to avoid its deviation from the normal orbit. The WiMi digital twin has already been used in the 5G era, exhibiting the digital twin for simulating analysis and monitoring in industrial scenarios. In the 6G era, WiMi digital twin will be applied to digital e-commerce, twin industry, urban planning, automobile and other industries, to realize the 3-dimensional dynamic interaction between people, equipment and their scenes.

Conclusion

The success of 5G is crucial to the future development of 6G. The 5G-Advanced of 5G (expansion and enhancement) technical standards are still continuously evolving and improving, and the exploration and development of 5G vertical industry will also lay a solid foundation for the realization of “everything intelligent connection” in 6G. According to the industry consensus, it will take a long time for 6G to truly realize its application, and it is expected to take 8-10 years, so we should still concentrate on 5G construction.
At present, the competition in the mobile Internet field is still relatively fierce. In order to lead in the 6G field, everyone has already carried out relevant layout and research and development. But I believe there will be more new discoveries in 6G. What do you think about this?
