5G Evolution: On the Path to 6G

While Release 16 and beyond for 5G has immense untapped potential, 6G will take the user experience to a whole new level and would revolutionize many industries. Data rates on the order of Tera bits per second, latency on the order of few microseconds, and high energy efficiencies for the devices and the network would be hallmarks of 6G. High-fidelity holographic communications and multi-sensory communications could become part of our daily lives. While industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, entertainment, and transportation would begin to be influenced by 5G, they would be transformed on a larger scale by 6G.
