Reseachers look to network technology for 6G
The construction of 5G mobile radio networks has only just begun, but researchers are already working on the technologies required for 6G. To connect the mobile radio cells of 6th generation, fiber optic networks are also required that connect the radio cells to the larger backbones. Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) use ultrafast electro-optical modulators to convert data signals from terahertz transmission to optical transmission.

Compared to 5G, 6G should enable again significantly higher transmission rates, shorter delay times, greater device density and the integration of artificial intelligence. On the way to the sixth mobile radio generation, many challenges have to be mastered, both with regard to the individual components and their interaction. For example, the wireless networks of the future will consist of a large number of small mobile radio cells within which large amounts of data can be transmitted quickly and energy-efficiently.
