✍️ Theme of the Week

The next "G" is coming.
6G is expected to be "100 times faster than the peak speed of 5G" and transform “the way we live and work.”
But you can’t get there with existing technology and spectrum – some new tricks are needed.
One of those tricks: increase the number of base stations.
But these base stations have to be closely synchronized to avoid handover problems.
Another trick: directed signals using beamforming from multiple antennas at one location (MIMO) or different locations (COMP).
This also requires very tight synchronization for phase alignment.
Yet another option in the 6G playbook: connecting to multiple base stations, instead of just one (TDD).
This also requires close synchronization between base stations to ensure transmit and receive data don’t interfere with each other.
All of these technologies have a common thread: multiple elements working together.
And these elements need to be in sync.

One nice side effect of moving to 5G and 6G is the development of location and positioning projects and standards, including:

All of these projects highlighted the need for accurate synchronization between the beacons.
