5.5G will be 10 times faster than 5G with speeds of 10 Gbps

While 5G continues to attract more and more users around the world, its upgrade, soberly titled 5.5G, is seeing its development progress at breakneck speed. And the promises are tempting to say the least: the speeds offered , reaching 10 Gbps in downstream transfer, will be on average 10 times faster than those of 5G.

Yesterday, Huawei took advantage of the Global Mobile Forum, which is currently being held in Bangkok, Thailand, to announce that 5G has now passed the milestone of 700 million users worldwide.

Today, it is the turn of Wang Tao, executive director of Huawei, to come back in more detail on the technology and to give news of the progress of the project. The announcement left us speechless: 5.5G will be 10 times faster than 5G, according to Wang Tao, so even the latter caused speedometers to jump significantly when it was rolled out in 2020.

Thus, Wang Tao specifies that the 5.5G offers will be able to offer speeds of up to 10 Gbps, thanks to a network made up of 100 billion connections and based on endogenous intelligence, a somehow improved version of artificial intelligence. using specific hardware. If the technology is still under development, Wang Tao explains that the latter has already passed several promising milestones.

First, the standardization process is already well advanced. Meanwhile, technical innovations are now in place, and the 10 Gbps objective has been met. Finally, the integration of connected objects (Internet of Things) is on point, since three support technologies are now compatible.

“The communications industry is constantly evolving”explained Wang Tao. “5.5G has moved up a gear. Looking ahead, our task is to tackle these five new areas: standards, spectrum, products, ecosystems and applications. »
