Samsung is constantly on the quest to surpass itself and is currently looking for a new growth engine. Now the company has published a white paper showing how Samsung intends to secure the global 6G, frequency bands.
Samsung has published the white paper titled 6G Spectrum – “Expanding the Frontier” which represents the company’s direction needed to obtain a 6G spectrum. It states that Samsung is committed to taking the lead and spreading its vision to bring advanced communications experiences to every corner of the world.
Executive Vice President and Head of Advanced Communication and Research Technology Sunghyun Choi said, “We have long embarked on the journey of understanding, developing and standardizing 6G communication technology.
What does 6G network technology need?
The new communication technology requires an ultra-wide band of spectrum with a contiguous bandwidth from hundreds of MHz to tens of GHz.
- Signal distortion compensation.
- Minimizing the power consumption in the base station.
- Dealing with the non-linearity of the transmitter’s power amplifier.
- Reducing penetration loss and high-frequency blocking.
- Increasing the length of uplink signals.
Why is 6G required?
- To enable new services like high-fidelity mobile holograms and a truly immersive augmented reality (XR) only possible with ultra-high-speed communications and big data.
- To meet the growing demand for greater coverage.
- Facilitate high-performance computing and improve infrastructure for digital design.
- A high fidelity network that could support Metaverse technology.
- Strengthening of commercial communication, etc.
What is Samsung planning?
Samsung plans to use all available 6G bands and will propose to use all bands from the low-band spectrum below 1 GHz to the mid-band spectrum from 1 GHz to 24 GHz. In addition, the upper-frequency band from 24 GHz to 300 GHz is made available for high-performance computing, commercial and intelligence purposes.
The Samsung white paper presents the transformation of all existing frequency bands such as 3G, 4G and 5G into new 6G bands simply by making them compatible. The company will be announcing more details shortly and disclosing the new findings at its first “6G FORUM” scheduled for May 13, 2022.
