Japan’s First 6G Device

A group of Japanese tech companies has introduced a high-speed 6G prototype device capable of transmitting data at an ultra-high speed of 100 Gbps. Operating in the 100 GHz and 300 GHz bands, the wireless device boasts a range of up to 100 meters, marking a significant leap forward from current 5G networks.

With the increasing adoption of 5G technology, the industry is already looking ahead to the next generation of cellular technology.

The consortium behind this advancement includes DOCOMO, NTT Corporation, NEC Corporation, and Fujitsu Limited. The development of this device, underway since 2021, reflects anticipation for the forthcoming 6G era.

While the prototype demonstrates impressive speeds, it’s important to note that 6G is still in its early stages of development. Significant work lies ahead before it can achieve mainstream adoption. Researchers suggest that commercially available 6G connectivity may emerge by 2030, requiring optimized hardware to support the higher band frequencies, as well as the deployment of new cell towers and integration of 6G phone antennas.
