Japan launches World’s First 6G Prototype Device, 20x faster than 5G



The global tech arena witnessed a groundbreaking moment with the debut of the world’s inaugural 6G prototype device, promising unprecedented internet speeds reaching up to 100 Gbps effortlessly. 

Developed by a consortium of Japanese telecom powerhouses including DOCOMO, NEC Corporation, NTT Corporation, and Fujitsu, this technological marvel represents a quantum leap beyond current 5G capabilities, boasting speeds reportedly 20 times faster.

The device’s remarkable performance spans both indoor and outdoor environments, achieving a staggering 100 Gbps on the 100 GHz band indoors and maintaining this speed even on the 300 GHz band outdoors, within a radius of 328 feet (100 meters) from the receiver.

In comparison to the existing 5G landscape, where real-world internet speeds average between 200 to 400 Mbps despite a theoretical peak of 10 Gbps, 6G technology appears to transcend these limitations. By harnessing higher frequency bands, it facilitates rapid data transmission, albeit with potential constraints such as diminished network coverage due to reduced penetration range.

While 6G technology grapples with challenges like frequency limitations and environmental variables such as obstacles and weather conditions impacting its performance, its advent signifies a monumental stride in communication evolution. With promises of real-time holographic communication and enriched virtual experiences, 6G holds the potential to revolutionise connectivity.

Despite being in the nascent stages of development, this prototype device stands as a pivotal milestone towards commercialisation . Researchers worldwide will leverage it to glean insights and drive enhancements, charting a course towards a future defined by swifter and more efficient internet connectivity.
