- 6G will hit the market around 2030 amid the expansion of the ‘industrial metaverse,’ Nokia CEO says
- Experts define 6G in terms of faster speed and response time.
- According to Lundmark, the “physical world and the digital world will grow together.”
What is 6G concept-
Experts define 6G in terms of faster speed and response time with major shift in networks. All this would be influenced by the technological development in quantum mechanics and artificial intelligence.
Currently, there is no strict definition of 6G. But later in 2018 and 2019, telecommunication networks began to release 5G networking in the US commercial market.
What Nokia’s CEO says-
Pekka Lundmark, the president and CEO of telecommunication company Nokia, has predicted that 6G network will soon come in the market by 2030 as “industrial metaverse” is expanding at a fast speed in the tech industry.
“Right now, we’re all building 5G networks, as we know, but by the time quantum computing is maturing for commercial applications, we’re going to be talking about 6G,” Lundmark said during a Davos panel discussion.
“There will be the physical world and then there will be a digital world. There will be pretty much a digital twin of everything out there,” quoted Lundmark, adding that moving to 6G would require even more wide computational resources, including networks that are atleast hundreds of times faster than 5G.
This Davos panel was based on “strategic outlook on the digital economy” and was held on Tuesday morning.
Among the members of the panel Ruth Parlot was also present who is the chief financial officer at Alphabet. She agreed and said that very soon people can use augmented Reality (AR) glasses commenting “You’ll be able to wear AR glasses and translate languages as you speak,”.
The Trade Magzine Industry Week says that an industrial metaverse “could include models similar to comprehensive, detailed digital twins of objects that exist in reality,”
Marianna Obrist , a professor of multisensory interfaces at University College London, wrote in El País earlier this month that part of that shift would include interactive technologies that integrate the other human senses, such as smell, taste, and touch, into the user experience.
