LG-KAIST 6G Center has successfully developed a Beamforming solution, a technology that focuses wifi waves in a specific direction, completing hardware testing.
The sixth generation (6G) mobile telecommunications network research center LG-KAIST of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) has developed a 6G mobile network signal transmission and reception device.
This device uses a new frequency spectrum in the Terahertz (THz) band, which reduces the loss of electromagnetic waves, and the transmission speed is faster.
After two and a half years of research and development, LG-KAIST 6G Center has successfully developed a Beamforming solution, a technology that focuses wifi waves in a specific direction, completing hardware testing.
Beamforming technology overcomes the technical limitations of electromagnetic wave attenuation in the 27 GHz band over the Terahertz frequency range (143-170 GHz). By using high-bandwidth up to 27 GHz, this technology will deliver transmission speeds that can be 11 times faster than current 5G technology when using the 2.4 GHz band.
Broadband wireless transmission using Terahertz frequency band to support high data transmission rate and multiple mobile subscribers is the core transmission technique of 6G telecommunications network, in which beamforming is an impossible technology. lack helps to reduce the distance when transmitting signals due to the use of Terahertz frequencies.
Currently, countries around the world are competing to research and develop 6G mobile information technology to achieve the goal of commercializing this technology by 2030.
Previously, in 2018, Japan announced a plan to exploit Terahertz band, and then the US and China also launched policies and research tasks on 6G technology in March 2020 and March respectively. 11/2020.
Experts say that 6G mobile telecommunications network is likely to be used as a solution to provide high-speed data, so this is a technology with great potential.
