While World Prepares For 5G, Huawei Already Researching 6G Technology

The United States has spent months warning about the dangers it claims are associated with Huawei’s 5G technology, but now a new report claims the Chinese tech giant is already moving on, and putting its focus on the next generation.
While the world is still working to adopt the latest 5G technology, Huawei appears to be one step ahead, with research dedicated to the creation of 6G technology.
This, according to a new report, which claims the Chinese tech giant is already working with academics from Canada’s top research universities to develop the technology at Huawei’s research and development center in Ontario.
Huawei’s vice-president of research strategy in Canada, Song Zhang, confirmed that his team has already started working with Canadian researchers, and he said, “5G is very new, and looking at 6G is part of the so-called 5G evolution.” He claimed the research on 6G technology is still in its very early stages, and Huawei has yet to publicly announce its plans for 6G technology.
While the research may be taking place in Canada right now, the country’s government is still considering whether it will move to ban Huawei’s 5G technology. Canada’s public safety minister claimed the decision will likely be delayed until after the country’s elections in October, because “Canada needs more information from the United States about the nature of the potential security threat the US believes the company poses.” 
The Trump Administration has been at the forefront of the move to ban Huawei’s 5G technology around the world, claiming it presents a national security risk because of ties between the tech giant and the Chinese government. 
However, they have yet to comment on reports of the ties Google has to intelligence agencies like the CIA and the NSA, and the power they* would be given by the implementation of 5G networks.
In response to criticism from Washington, the founder of Huawei has said he is not concerned, and his company will create whatever technology it needs to overcome being shut out by the US.  In a recent interview, he referred to 5G as “a tool in support of future widespread artificial intelligence adoption.
I am open to the possibility of a paid transfer of 5G technology and production techniques to US companies so they can build upon it and develop 6G to speed up their own development,”  Ren Zhengfei said. 
When it comes to the creation of 6G technology, reports estimate that it won’t be available until at least 2030, so it looks like we still have a few years to get used to 5G before moving on to the next generation.
