Although 5G networks have yet to be launched across the USA, let alone the entire world, it seems that companies are not wasting time trying to develop the upcoming 6G technology. In fact, the latest company deciding to join the consortium aiming to develop this technology is Apple, which has just released its first 5G-compatible smartphone.
This alliance that Apple recently joined is called the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions, and it is an alliance of several major tech companies and telecom companies looking to help develop 6G technology for the future. While it may appear that these companies are getting ahead of themselves, we assume that having this technology arrive earlier than expected is not a bad thing.
According to the advertisement, it says: “The alliance is designed to lay the groundwork for a vibrant market for innovation in North America for future generations of mobile technology. The alliance has been named the Next G Alliance after its primary goal of cementing North America’s place in the evolutionary path of generation networks. Fifth and sixth generation technology development. Its work will encompass the entire life cycle of research and development, manufacturing, standardization and market preparation. ”
So far, this alliance includes Apple, Charter, Cisco, Google, HP, Intel, AT&T, Bell Canada, Ciena, Ericsson, Facebook, InterDigital, JMA Wireless, Microsoft, Nokia, Qualcomm, Samsung, T-Mobile, TELUS, Telnyx, UScellular, and Verizon.
