Dr. Tong Wen added that, recently, when he talked to Huawei’s 6G research team, they said that he was not supportive of their work. Meanwhile, he told them that whether the company achieves 6G depends on how hard they work.
“Of course, I promise them that I will fully support their efforts, by ensuring adequate investment in 6G, so that they can make 6G a reality and establish our leadership. in 6G,” he said.
Talking more about the book “6G: The Next Horizon”, his preface is “Together and define 6G”. He explained, he wrote that because he didn’t really know what 6G was yet.
“All questions about 6G are questions that we, as an industry insider, must work together to answer. We are certainly looking forward to working with other industry players. to define 6G in the next 10 years.
In the end, Huawei can answer questions about what makes 6G unique compared to 5G, how much faster 6G will be than 5G, and what application scenarios will be supported by 6G,” he said. Tong Wen shared.

“At this point, 6G is still an experimental concept. Therefore, scientists worldwide need to continue to research, analyze application scenarios and define 6G. We need to avoid it. enhance 6G at these early stages. Unfortunately, 5G has been over-hyped, causing 6G to attract too much attention in the first place and may even be politicized,” said Mr. Tong Wen. evaluate.
