The University of Glasgow has launched a 6G lab dedicated to helping advance state-of-the-art 6G communications technologies in the United Kingdom.
The Terahertz On-chip Circuit Test Cluster for 6G Communications and Beyond lab (TiC6G) was funded by a £2.6 million grant from the government’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
TiC6G houses a suite of cutting-edge instruments capable of testing prototype devices for 6G and is located in the Centre for Advanced Electronics at the James Watt School of Engineering. The university expects it will help enable research critical to developing the infrastructure, spectrum, and protocols needed to achieve 6G’s lightning-fast speeds.
The test cluster is poised to drive the advancement of enabling technologies for the next-generation wireless and mobile communications and radar sensing as well as emerging technologies such as quantum computing systems.
“The University of Glasgow has been working at the forefront of communications technologies for many years, including as a host for the Scotland 5G Centre’s testbed for 5G communications,” said Professor Edward Wasige from the James Watt School of Engineering.
“The TiC6G lab will help us remain at the leading edge as the next generation is established, bringing with it exciting new applications in healthcare, transportation, clean energy, and more.
On the same day the lab was launched, representatives from the University of Glasgow signed a new memorandum of understanding with Keysight Technologies. The agreement aims to deepen collaboration in developing new measurement technologies that will address the challenges of tomorrow.
6GWorld is an independent home for thought leadership. We help the research and technology industries prepare to answer the problems of tomorrow.
