Through the successful attempt in which LG electronics carried out Sending and receiving data over the 6G terahertz (THz) networkthe company once again confirmed its global leadership in the field of mobile telecommunications.
Following the success achieved in the trials, the South Korean company provided more details about the future that this innovative technology holds, as well as the plans for marketing. Do you want to know what they are? Stay because we will tell you in detail.

What is the 6G network?
According to its acronym, 6G is that sixth generation of mobile connectivity designed to replace 5G with better speed rates and even lower latency.
However, although it uses ultra-wideband frequencies, the network still has a relatively short range by current quality standards and may experience performance drops when sending or receiving data.
Nonetheless, it is expected that future developments will Ping is only 0.1 millisecondswhile download and upload speeds could reach 1,000 Gbps.
LG takes the first step in implementing a 6G network
In fact, it was one of the first countries to show interest in next-generation mobile connectivity and recognize the huge benefits it offers over 5G South Korea.
In this way with the help of Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI) in Berlin, Germany, LG Not only has it managed to successfully receive and transmit data using technology 6Gbut also managed at a distance 320 meters in a frequency range of 155 to 175 GHz.
Previously, in August 2021, the South Korean giant had already conducted other tests where it obtained similar results, but at a distance of just 100 meters.
For this reason, the company’s recent achievement represents a tremendous step forward for development marketing of 6G as the base stations for urban molecules are separated by 250 meters outdoors.
On the other hand, to counteract disconnections, LG, Fraunhofer HHI and the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics (IAF) they created a Multi-channel power amplifier which increases the transmission capacity.
This innovation has a performance of 20dBmwhile that of the model used in the 2021 tests was 15 dBm.
As if that wasn’t enough, this three-way alliance also designed a low-noise amplifier receiver whose aim is to optimize the quality of the incoming signal.
Both creations are available in the LG’s latest module designwhich has sufficient resources for the future IC (Integrated Circuit) production, this will open the doors for the worldwide commercialization of 6G.
“With the success of our latest demonstration, we are one step closer to achieving 1 terabit (TB) per second 6G speeds in both urban and urban areas. LG will continue to work with research institutes and industry innovators to further consolidate its leadership in 6G technology. We expect 6G to be a major driver of future business and new user experiences, and there’s no place we’d rather be than at the forefront of its development.“, said dr Kim Byoung-hoon, CTO and Executive Vice President of LG.
It is worth mentioning that the company will publish the full results of its study and an overview of the development of the technology during the Grand Summit 6Gto keep LG Science Park in Seoul 09/23.
In addition, the event will have the participation of Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and from Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science (KRISS).
When will 6G be commercialized?
6G is expected to start standardizing 2025while the commercialization of the technology has an approximate date 2029.
However, it must be taken into account that there are still some obstacle related to 5G, such as B. the accessibility gap.
On the other hand, fifth-generation commercial networks were only implemented in 2019 and are hardly expanding worldwide, so it can be assumed that work on them will continue optimize your performancejust as happened with the 4G network, which gave rise to the 4.5G network.
What will be the benefits of 6G?
With big companies competing fiercely to enter the 6G market, it’s likely all kinds of innovations in different industriessuch as automotive, mobile communications, health, business, technology, etc.
For example, artificial intelligence would communicate with ultra-realistic hologramsnot to mention that the Internet of Things (IoT) and Ambient Computing You would make strides never seen before.
As if that wasn’t enough, 6G will also offer the ability to organically connect objects, people and spaces, which would lead to more personalized experiences.
In order to achieve all these goals, LG is working with them Research institutes, universities and organizations world famous.
By what they call Alliances for R&D cooperationaim to accelerate the arrival of the next generation of wireless networks.
As if that wasn’t enough, in 2021 Next G Alliancean initiative of Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS), chose LG to lead a work team with the aim of analyzing and setting the direction of 6G technologies.
In this way, it is clear that the world of telecommunications is evolving rapidly and that with industry leaders such as LG, we will soon see the results reflected in Mobile Broadband.
