—- A Foolproof Guide to 6G Network Applications

6G Network Applications


UHRBB – Ultra High Rate Broadband

6G network emphasizes the importance of bandwidth. 


For example, in video surveillance, remote holographic classrooms, cloud rendering XR, industrial robot tactile feedback, etc., the peak rate can reach more than 1Tbps. Also, the accuracy and synchronization of information transmission require the 6G network low latency from sub-ms to tens of ms due to high definition, wide image field of view, and a large amount of transmitted information data. 


In this application scenario, the wired access can be incorporated into the 6G network system to realize broadband connection indoors or within a local area.


Currently, there are diversified accesses, such as 5G, PON, and WiFi, in the 5G network industry and home applications. There is a higher demand for the mutual coordination and integration of wireless and wired accesses.


In the future, various accesses will be integrated into the 6G network. So the 6G network will support unified management and intelligent scheduling of numerous connections. For instance, intelligently select and coordinate appropriate access based on the ubiquitous full-connection network architecture for diverse indoor and outdoor application scenarios, such as fixed high-definition live broadcasting, commercial PON access, and home fiber access, to achieve a better broadband connection.


HMSBB – High Moving Speed Broadband

6G network will meet the high data rate coverage at high moving speeds. 


For example, movable high-definition video live broadcasting involves broadband communications during fast-moving aircraft, high-speed rail, etc., it is necessary to ensure the quality of data transmission. Therefore, uninterrupted broadband at high moving speeds will be an important issue to be solved in the future.

In order to overcome the Doppler Shift problem of high mobility and ensure wireless communication quality, it needs to be considered seriously in the future of wireless technology innovation and optimization, network architecture management, and business continuity guarantees.


ULLHR – Ultra Low Latency and High Reliability

6G network will fulfill high requirements on low latency, latency jitter, and reliability. 


For example, application scenarios such as mobile machine motion control, remote holographic surgery, and ultra-high voltage relay protection usually require sub-ms level low latency and 99.99999% reliability to ensure the accuracy of industrial manufacturing and guarantee personal safety.

The dynamic optimization of existing technologies and the sustainable development of emerging technologies will ensure end-to-end ultra-low latency, latency jitter, and ultra-high reliability.


FCS – Flexible Communication and Sensing

6G network possesses wireless communication and wireless sensing capabilities. 


On the one hand, the participation of sensing functions will greatly enrich 6G network functions. Synaesthesia fusion can provide high-precision positioning and high-resolution imaging services in the fields of Internet of Vehicles and smart factories, such as traffic environment perception, product defect detection, visitor identification, etc.


On the other hand, sensing functions can assist 6G network communication and improve communication performance. For example, based on the perception of surrounding environmental information, efficiently schedule the 6G network resources and reduce the power consumption of the entire network while ensuring user service needs.

For different application scenarios, the flexibility of synaesthesia will meet the requirements of divergent business indicators, such as accuracy and resolution, and better serve human beings.


LRNC Low Rate Numerous Connections

6G network focuses on the low-rate numerous connections of devices, aiming to create energy-saving IoT communication. 


For example, in application scenarios such as remote meter reading, environmental monitoring, and interconnection of smart light poles, the 6G network architecture requires supporting the ubiquitous connection of devices. From the perspective of devices, it needs to support appropriate network access and D2D interconnection capabilities.

Therefore, dynamic data interaction and intelligence sharing among devices can be low-power consumption and low cost.


HRMC High Rate Massive Connections

6G network applies for high-rate, large-scale connections. 


For typical applications such as Twin Cities, with the help of technologies such as AI and big data, the massive data collection rate can reach 1 million/km2. At the same time, high-precision images and high-definition video surveillance requires high-rate speed (hundreds of Mbps to tens of Gbps). In addition, this application scenario requires a high traffic density of 1Gbps/m2.


SWAC Space Wide Area Communications

6G network highlights full-coverage communication of wide space area, mainly through technologies such as satellites, unmanned aerial vehicles, and high-altitude platforms, as well as the air-space-land-sea architecture that integrates core networks and coordinates multi-layer space networks, thereby achieving wide-area communication in remote areas of air, space, sea, and land.

This application scenario proposes higher requirements on coverage capabilities, and the key challenge is to achieve low-cost coverage communications.
