Huawei is already working on 6G in one of its Canadian labs


While the deployment of the 5G mobile network is just beginning, the Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei is already working on the next generation of mobile communications in its research and development center in Ottawa.

The company’s research on 6G is still in its infancy. According to Huawei’s Vice President of Research Strategy and Partnerships in Canada, Song Zhang will have to wait until at least 2030 to reach the general public.

Huawei is the world leader in the 5G market, but its telecommunications infrastructure is banned in the United States for fear that these facilities facilitate the spying by the Chinese authorities. The country has recommended to its allies to do the same, and Australia has already followed suit.

The Canadian government is currently studying the possibility of banning the Chinese company from participating in the deployment of 5G on its territory. A decision should be made after the fall federal election.

The 5G will be 20 times faster than the current 4G network, which will, of course, serve to download and upload data faster with its mobile phone, but especially to propel the Internet of Things, such as autonomous cars.

Huawei is not the only technology company to start developing the next generation of mobile communications. In recent months, South Korean firms Samsung and LG have confirmed that they have begun their research on the development of 6G.
