A digital future with vivo's 6G?

According to vivo, over the last two years, the industry has gradually reached an agreement on the services that 6G could provide and the key capability indicators that must be met. 

Their R&D called the vivo Communications Research Institute also gained momentum and they have been actively taking part when it comes to shaping the 6G technology by getting in-depth analysis and evaluation of 6G business models, drivers, application scenarios, system architecture, and enabling technologies.

The most recent 6G white paper from vivo builds on two earlier ones that were published back in 2020. These earlier works include "Digital Life 2030+," which offers insights into some of the many possible 6G digital scenarios for the following ten years, and "6G Vision, Requirements and Challenges," which outlines the brand's vision for 6G, which is that 6G will enable the convergence of the digital and physical worlds.

The third white paper indicates that this new 6G technology should deliver even better communication, information, and converged computing services that should become a base for a combined physical and digital world. Based on the studies 6G will integrate communication, computation, and sensing into a single system.

The study continues that an integrated 6G network will be capable of connecting not just humans to humans, but it will also connect humans to machines, and machines to machines thus will result in a brand new digital world. vivo says that around a hundred billion of devices can be connected by 2030.

6G will allow us to bring the next generation of connectivity into every aspect of people's lives. It will integrate more access technologies, cover a larger physical space, and provide better core capabilities, supporting more services. By seamlessly connecting industries, transportation, workspace, and homes, 6G will contribute greatly to society – from the democratization of professional talent to the enhancement of emergency and disaster response, said Rakesh Tamrakar, 5G Standard Expert at vivo.

Moreover, the study says that the new technology will broader basic telecommunication services to support the so-called immersive mixed reality and holographic and multi-sensory communication. They added that the capacity, data rate, latency, and reliability will also be improved along with it. This will help expand the customer base and raise the value of services by providing greater end-to-end flexibility and adaptability to meet the needs of individuals and industries.

This means that every performance parameter, including data rate, communication delay, and area traffic capacity, will need to be upgraded several times or more in comparison to 5G. This includes both peak and user-experienced data rates.

To enable the new 6G services and achieve the fusion of sensing and communication, new network functions must be implemented. Mobile network and computing, cross-domain data interaction, and native AI network will all merge with 6G. As a result, a new system architectural design is needed.

Integrating sensing and communication opens up new possibilities for cellular wireless networks since 6G native AI would increase system flexibility and cost-effectiveness while enhancing network and air interface efficiency. An end-to-end cross-layer data plane must be implemented in order to provide both intelligent and fundamental information services. The access barrier to terminals is lowered via extremely low-power communication, enabling wider connectivity.

As of now, the Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO), Reconfigurable Intelligent Surface (RIS) technology, and new waveforms are some of the research studies that still need further analysis. As these types of technologies will pave the way for a more effective and flexible network that can support different types of situations and provide more advanced sensing functions.

However, the company commented that the R&D for 6G is still at the early stage and they are dedicated to improving every 6G scenario using cases and technical indicators, conducting in-depth research, and experimental verification of possible 6G technologies, and assisting in the creation of a universal standard for the 6G technology.

The said research institute was established last 2016, and has already published over 5000 5G proposals to the 3GPP or also known as the third Generation Partnership Project. This also has to lead to 15 technical features and three technical projects being approved.
