Google and Apple already think about the future: join 6G alliance

The deployment of the 5G has been underway in Spain for some time, although it has intensified since September. In other countries, the new network is also being deployed, although it will not be until 2021 when it is actually ready around the world. Despite this, the industry already has its sights set on 6G, also Google and Apple.

Countries such as Japan and South Korea have already set dates for the deployment of 6G, which will not take place until 2030. Also in the United States, they are already thinking about its deployment because Google and Apple have joined the Next G Alliance, a group that seeks to boost 6G in the United States.

Google and Apple already think about 6G

Both Google and Apple add up weeks after they have released their first 5G phones to the market, being in fact the latest companies in the segment to have a compatible phone. The two now join the Next G Alliance, a group where industry companies will join forces to work on the advancement of 6G in the United States over the next decade.

Other companies already in this partnership or group are Charter Communications, Cisco, HPE, Intel, Keysight Technologies, LG Electronics, Mavenir, MITRE, and VMWare, AT&T Bell Canada, Ciena, Ericsson, Facebook, Interdigital, JMA Wireless, Microsoft, Nokia, Qualcomm, Samsung, Telus, Telnyx, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Verizon. We come across many well-known names in the sector.

So far, only brands like Samsung have talked about 6G, its advantages and its possible plans. Also, Chinese brands like Xiaomi or Huawei, although in the case of the second, their current veto prevents them from using 5G, which also prevents them from adding up to groups like the Next G Alliance. Fears that U.S.-China relations will not improve could cause us to have two different or incompatible deployments.

It is almost a decade before the deployment of 6G will begin, although it will depend in addition to each country. At least you can see that key firms in this segment like Google and Apple already have their sights set on the future.
