On Tuesday LG Electronics announced that it has signed a partnership with Keysight Technologies, a US-based electronics test and measurement firm, and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST), South Korea’s leading research university.
They together are on their way to develop next-generation 6G network technology. LG had already established a 6G research center with KAIST and signed an agreement with the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science back in 2019.
LG mentioned that 6G will provide faster data speed, lower latency, and higher reliability than 5G, and will be able to bring the concept of Ambient Internet of Everything (AIoE).
LG’s target is to compete in 6G research by 2024 and the three of them have cooperated together to develop technologies related to terahertz, a key frequency band for 6G communications. The company also mentioned that they are expecting the 6G network to get commercialized by 2029.
