China launched the Star Era-12 satellite to test the network 6G the world’s first to outer space.
Star Era-12 has such a high frequency band that it must be tested in space so that the signal will not dissipate as easily as in the air.
Thyagarajan Nandagopal (National Science Foundation) estimated the satellite 6Git offers band speeds of 100 and 500 Gigahertz, or 100 times faster than 5G. To understand that speed, compare 5G and 4G phones: 5G models are 100 times faster than 4G, depending on the carrier.
Network 6G it will cover everything from communications to telemedicine to national security.
Technology 6G it will also bring many new products and services that will flow billions of dollars into the global economy, such as 5G bringing Uber, Instacart, and Netflix.
For example, iPhone 6Gwill download high definition movies in 8 seconds and 1,500 high resolution photos in less than a minute. A surgeon in New York can use robotic technology to operate on a patient in California.
“We are taking wireless for granted and are now realizing because of the pandemic that our entire economy is dependent on communications research. We cannot take it lightly,China not the case, “he said as quoted by the NYPost.
NYU global affairs expert Pano Yannakogeorgos said China not yet a winner of the game 6G, but the launch explained China wants to be a standard bearer 6G as is the case for 5G.
Government Chinatarget a five-year timeframe for the strategic goal of 5G – and the researchers set their deadline. CurrentlyChina is the king of 5G, just as Britain was the world’s first commercial telegraph powerhouse in the 19th century.
“He who controls the network, will control the world,” he told The Post.
If China stay in the lead 6GYannakogeorgos feared that the US and Europe would take the world backwards by setting their own standards. For example, in the 3G era, American devices would not work overseas due to different standards, and vice versa.
“It’s like taking your laptop to Europe and having to buy an adapter,” he concluded.
