The world is on the verge of entering the fifth generation in cellular networking, or 5G. 2019 will be the year of 5G, with commercial 5G networks rolled out across the globe. 5G is full of promise: driverless cars, smart homes, and virtual reality (VR) for everyone, everywhere. We are headed into the next generation, but no one can still say exactly how 5G will change our lives. Which is why right now is the perfect time to start looking at 6G.
Wireless data communication is often still very underdeveloped in remote areas. The University of Oulu’s Centre for Wireless Communications is participating in the development of the 5G network in the remote parts of Brazil and the Arctic area.
