Huawei Technologies is clearly seeking to lead the next generation of telecommunications technology. The company’s goal is to become a pioneer in 6G networks, because the United States and Japan have also invested heavily in the next network standard.
According to Nikkei Asia, as the United States and Japan are also advancing next-generation telecommunications technology, the Chinese technology giant’s 6G plan has also arrived.
In addition, the company’s CEO and founder Ren Zhengfei requires employees to “break through the horizon” and set the industry’s global standard.
Last month, he made the above statement in a speech at a gathering of company scientists, researchers, and interns. According to internal company documents, the senior official stated that the brand will continue to develop 5G and AI (artificial intelligence) businesses, while also advancing next-generation technologies.
Nevertheless, the biggest obstacle to its plan may be the United States, which has imposed various sanctions in the past, which have basically weakened its once-high-profile smartphone business.
The founder acknowledged the impact of these U.S. trade restrictions, but added: “Our research on 6G is to prepare for a rainy day. Our goal is to seize the 6G patent site. We cannot wait until 6G becomes feasible, because waiting will be limited due to lack of patents US.
Up to now, Huawei has the largest number of 5G technical standards essential patents. And now, China is also moving towards 6G technology, which is one of its key research areas.
At the same time, the United States and Japan are also racing to develop 6G networks to better compete with China. At present, 6G is still in its early stages, but it is expected to realize a large number of applications in the future, including opportunities in space research and earth science.
