For the shame of falling behind in 5G, the United States has aggressively promoted 6G, hoping to overtake Huawei, or it may not be able to do so

It is reported that the United States is now accelerating the development of 6G, especially hoping to use its advantages in satellite communication technology to achieve overtake in 6G technology, so it has greatly accelerated the development of satellite communication. no chance. Satellite communication is the killer of the United States in 6G technology. So far, Starlink, the largest satellite communication company in the United States, has launched 2,100 satellites, and it is expected that more than 40,000 satellites will eventually be launched to form a powerful satellite communication network. A global leader in communications. The rapid development of satellite communications in the United States lies in the technology that 6G technology integrates heaven and earth. The United States tries to rely on the leading edge of satellite communications technology to ensure that it has a leading position in 6G technology. already at a disadvantage. Statistics from Japanese media in 2021 show that China already owns more than 40% of 6G patents, while the United States has only more than 30%. Then, in order to ensure its advantages in 6G technology research and development, the United States actively cooperated with Japan and South Korea to develop 6G technology. The 6G patents it has only surpassed China's, and the superposition of satellite communication technology advantages will ensure that it achieves the goal of overtaking on curves. However, the plot of the United States may not become a reality. China is catching up in satellite communication technology. China has a number of high-orbit satellite system plans. In terms of high-orbit satellite communications, China has launched more than 20 high-orbit satellite communications over the past 20 years. , to meet the communication needs of domestic ocean transportation and other aspects, and now China has a number of plans to step up catching up in the low-orbit satellite communication where Starlink is located in the United States. In terms of low-orbit satellite communications, China already has a number of low-orbit satellite communications plans, such as the "Hongyun Project" and "Hongyan Constellation". There's plenty of time to catch up with America. In fact, Starlink in the United States has not been as smooth as it expected. Starlink launched its first batch of satellites in 2019, and so far there are only 2,100 satellites in orbit, only 5% of the expected 42,000 satellites. There have also been accidents among the satellites. In February this year, 40 satellites were lost due to the impact of the solar storm. In the future, it is questionable whether it will have enough capacity to actually launch 42,000 satellites and maintain their operation. The industry believes that the low-orbit satellite communication that the United States once claimed can provide ultra-large bandwidth and ultra-low latency may not become a reality. Due to limited spectrum resources, it has been proved in the past few decades that satellite communication can only be an auxiliary to mobile communication after all, even if there are 4.2 Ten thousand Starlink satellites can’t meet the needs of the earth’s 7 billion people. After all, China needs 6 million 4G base stations to serve only 1.4 billion people. The previous Iridium project also proved to be unable to achieve universality due to the limited bandwidth resources provided. Serve. In terms of mobile communication technology, China has continued to maintain its leading edge. Recently, Huawei has officially launched 5.5G technology and will verify the UHF frequency band that may be used in 6G technology. This will help China to further consolidate its 6G technology. Leading edge, which is precisely what the United States lacks. The United States has lacked a complete industrial chain in terms of mobile communication technology. Today, the United States has no communication equipment manufacturers. Previously, it tried to launch the 5G ORAN standard to make up for this shortcoming. However, operators in the United States and the United Kingdom have officially due to the complexity of 5G technology. And the current mobile communication network has 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G and other multi-generation technologies at the same time, so the mobile communication network is highly complex, and professional communication equipment vendors such as Huawei and Ericsson are required to provide equipment and professional services to ensure stability, so the United States In terms of mobile communication technology, it has been difficult to keep up with China's pace. It can be said that the U.S. wishes are good, but the reality is difficult to support. It is not easy for the U.S. to try to overtake a corner on 6G technology, and China is likely to continue the advantages of 5G technology and continue to lead in 6G technology. If China is overtaken by China again in 6G technology, then the leading advantage of the United States in the field of science and technology will be further weakened.
