Forschungsaufbau für Übertragungsexperimente mit neuartigen Wellenformen bis 300 GHz.

While the new 5G technology is at the first stages of rollout, Rohde & Schwarz, the Fraunhofer HHI and the Fraunhofer IAF are taking a step further with demonstrations in the terahertz (THz) frequency band, related to the 6th generation wireless mobile communication (6G). The collaboration has resulted in a wireless transmit and receive system operating between 270 and 320 GHz, with further frequency extensions for potential 6G bands already in preparation.

6G research is already underway in industry and academia. While 5G introduces mmWave frequencies with wider bandwidths for higher data rates and enables new applications such as in wireless factory automation (Industrial IoT) and for autonomous vehicles, the aim of 6G is to push the boundaries of transmission bandwidths even higher.
