6G mobile networks will be here by 2030 – Says Nokia CEO
6G mobile networks will be operational by the end of the decade. But, smartphones will not be the most “common interface” by then. Nokia CEO Pekka Lundmark believes.
6G mobile networks will be here by 2030
Lundmark stated on a panel at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Tuesday. Hee expected 6G to enter the commercial market around 2030, approximately when Huawei expects the technology to be available.
Nokia, based in Finland, creates telecom networks. That allows phones and other internet-connected devices to interact with one another.
When CEO Nokia was asked when he believed the world would transition from smartphones to smart glasses and other gadgets worn on the face, Lundmark stated, “It will happen before 6G.”
Will we use 6G Mobile Networks on smartphones?
“By then, the smartphone as we know it now will most likely not be the most prevalent interface,” he said. “Many of these features will be integrated directly into our bodies.”
He did not elaborate, but some businesses, such as Elon Musk’s Neuralink. These are networks that use electrical signals from the brain to communicate with machines and other people in a new way.
The precise meaning of 6G is presently unknown. The globe is still grappling with 5G.
5G refers to next-generation mobile networks. That promises super-fast data rates and will enable technologies such as autonomous automobiles.
Augmented Reality Headgear:
In other news, US IT behemoths like Meta, Google, and Microsoft are developing new augmented reality headgear that might one day replace smartphones.
“We feel that one of the main advantages of augmented reality is fixing problems here on Earth,” Google CFO Ruth Porat remarked on the same panel.
“Things like wearing glasses and being able to interpret while speaking with spectacles,” she continued. “Those are rather close.”
Google released a new version of its augmented reality headset, the Pixel 3a, and 3a XL, in October 2018. Google previously developed an augmented reality helmet called Google Glass. The opportunities and limits of the metaverse were also underlined by the tech leaders.
Lundmark predicts that by 2030, there will be a “digital twin of everything” that will necessitate.
To transfer all of the computer bits required by the metaverse. Networks will need to be at least 100 times or possibly 1,000 times quicker then they are now. According to Lundmark.
