6G research is in its very early stages. The vision for what the International Telecommunication Union calls Network 2030 continues to take shape. While the industry is years away from starting the standards development process, subterahertz (sub-THz) territory is a focus of active research.
Getting to 100 gigabits per second (Gbps) to 1 terabit per second (Tbps) data throughput is a key objective and an active area of research for 6G. This extreme data throughput could evolve into a Key Performance Indicator (KPI) for 6G. However, it poses significant challenges, both from an RF perspective and baseband perspective.
