TechArt presents the Nokia Oulu factor and the future prospects of 6G, the successor to the 5G wireless communications network. Nokia has utilised the possibilities of wireless communications networks in real time at the Oulu factory, where the 5G internal network provides, low latency, an almost lag-free and reliable network of automation and robotics and communications suitable for industrial needs to improve production efficiency and quality. You can learn more about the modern solutions of the Oulu factory in the following video.

The development of 6G wireless networks is based on ever higher radio frequencies to better describe and sense the world around us. This means that the high frequencies of radio waves are able to create more accurate information about surrounding objects and create a new way of reacting to changes between the IoT, i.e. the Internet of Things and the way devices use radio communication, which is much faster than the current 5G networks. This, in turn, produces not only senses which we humans can sense, but also a new dimension that could be called the sixth sense. This is something we humans cannot normally sense. This brings numerous possibilities, even to a biological level, where each body forms its own miniature network that senses and communicates with the world around us in a whole new way. What 6G will be in 2030? You can get an introduction to the world of possibilities with the following video.

In the field of art, increasingly fast wireless communications enable new solutions for the future, in which the reality of virtual environments can be developed, for example. haptic, technology that exploits tactile sense, and augmented reality, which wirelessly brings more accurate video images to different devices, are just the tip of the iceberg where future technologies and telecommunications networks are going to develop. It may be that in the 2030s we will consider mobile phones to be as old-fashioned as we now consider landlines or faxes.

It's no coincidence that the Finnish Network Company Nokia is the project lead in the Hexa-X, which is the European Commission's 6G research project.
