Report: 6G in Japan

About the Report 

Japan wants to become the leading nation in 6G. Beyond 5G (6G) is the next generation of information and communications infrastructure to be introduced in the 2030s and is expected to form the basis for all industrial and social activities. Beyond 5G (6G) is not just an extension of conventional mobile communications but is an integrated network encompassing wired, wireless, land, sea, air, and space.

In addition to further upgrading the features of 5G, such as 'high speed and high capacity', 'low latency', and 'multiple simultaneous connections', new features such as 'ultra-low power consumption', 'scalability of communication coverage', 'autonomy', and 'ultra-safety and reliability' are expected to be realised.

This report is provided for individuals and organisations in the EU interested in understanding the 6G status in Japan to eventually market and sell products and services related to 6G in Japan. The document will describe the present situation for 6G in Japan, significant players, possible trends, opportunities, and challenges.
