Many developing countries in the world are currently working to develop the infrastructure of the 5G network. It will take another few years for the 5G network to fully operate in the world. But Japan has gone a step further than the 5G in developing the 6G network within the country.
Although Japan is behind other countries in the development of the 5G network, it seems to be ahead of other developed countries, in preparation for the criteria of the 6G network. According to a report by Japanese media Nikkei, Japan is preparing an outline of 6G networks. According to the news, Japan’s 6G network will be 10 times faster than the currently developing 5G network. This month, Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications will set up a Civilian Society of Research to develop the 6G Network.
However, Japan is not the only country in the world that have joined the race to build a faster network than 5G. Apart from Japan, countries like South Korea, Finland, and China are also planning to develop a faster network than 5G.
In fact, 5G is 20 times faster than the existing4G network. That is, a whole movie can be downloaded from the internet in just 1 second on the Internet.
The 5G network can also be used as an advanced application for automated vehicles. The commercial use of the 5G is expected to begin globally starting this year.
With the news of the 5G network being live soon surfacing regularly, the update from Japan regarding the 6G network looks promising for the future of communications.
