While the world eagerly waits for the 5G technology, LG has announced that it would develop next-generation 6G network technology by 2024.
The South Korean technology giant said on Tuesday that they have joined hands with two other technology firms to develop the 6G network technology.
LG will work along with Keysight Technologies and the Korean Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST) for bringing the successor of 5G technology to the world.
Similar to 5G, 6G is a wireless communication technology currently under development. It will support cellular data networks and will be faster and more reliable than 5G.
The three partners expect to finish the research and development by the year 2024 and expected to go commercial by the year 2029. With 6G we can experience the Ambient Internet of Everything (AIoE) which will bring better connectivity for all the users.
The year 2019 marked a significant milestone in the development of the technology when LG signed an agreement with the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science for studying 6G technologies. It also established a research center with KAIST in the same year.
The American technology company Keysight is one of the renowned companies of the world supplying 6G terahertz test equipment. The company has supplied the testing equipment to LG and KAIST as well.
