Apple, Google and LG have joined the Next G Alliance, a coalition of companies founded in October by The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) with the aim to establish North America as a leader in 6G.
Members include: Ericsson, Nokia, Charter Communications; Cisco; Hewlett Packard Enterprise; Intel; Keysight Technologies; Mavenir; MITRE; and VMware.
Huawei is not a member. Companies banned from supplying US government agencies are ineligible.
The group’s first meeting is scheduled for next Monday. Members plan to establish a working group early next year.
6G aims to deliver download speeds of around 95Gbps. GaN HEMT transistors have been suggested as a route to achieving THz frequencies.
Earlier this month, China put a satellite into orbit to test THz communications in space.News source: https://www.electronicsweekly.com/news/business/apple-google-lg-join-6g-development-group-2020-11/ BACK
