LG Breaks Record for 6G Data Transmission
LG Electronics has successfully tested the wireless transmission and reception of 6G terahertz data - at a frequency range of 155 to 175 GHz - over a distance of 320 meters outdoors. The milestone represents a significant step toward commercializing 6G THz in both indoor and outdoor urban areas since the reference cell coverage of base stations for urban macro cells is a distance of approximately 250 meters outdoors. It is also a major jump from August last year, when LG proved it could transfer 6G THz data over a distance of 100 meters outdoors.
