China has launched the first 6G satellite in the space world to test the technology, which can be 100 times faster than 5G. China has entered orbit with 12 other satellites from the Shanxi Province Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center. The successful launch of this satellite involves the use of high frequency waveforms to achieve data-transmission several times faster than Internet speed 5G. According to Chinese media, this satellite also has technology that will prove to be very useful for crop disaster monitoring and forest fire prevention.
The 13 satellites, including 10 from Argentina, are said to be the 351st launch of the Chosé rocket series. According to Chinese media reports, Xi Jinping’s government plans to launch 90 pieces of the Earth observation satellite for the satellite.
China Global Television Network reported that the 70 kg 6 G test satellite aims to verify the performance of data transmission using terahertz spectrum and will test a number of smart city, environmental protection and disaster prevention applications, such as crop and forest fire monitoring. The next generation of mobile access technology, which will not have formal specifications worked out for a number of years, has begun to gain momentum as major industry players are back on the launch as early as 2030.
Samsung expects the ITU-R to start work on 6G in 2021, completing the standard as early as 2028, opening the door to the earliest deployments in 10 years.
AT&T executive Mazin Gilbert said at the 6G Symposium last month that the challenges to 6G are many, including requiring 100 times the data throughput of 5G and sub-millisecond latency.
