Summary: With the rapid development of smart terminals and the emergence of new applications such as real-time and interactive services, wireless data traffic increases dramatically, and the current cellular network (even the upcoming 5G) cannot fully meet the rapidly rising technical requirements. In [1], based on the rules of previous commercial wireless communication systems entering the market and the expectation of 6G, the author predicts that 6G will start commercial in 10 years. Overall, the 6G mobile network is expected to provide super-fast speed, larger capacity and super-low latency to support the possibilities of new applications such as fine medical care, smart disaster prediction, and surreal virtual reality (VR). On the other hand, in terms of capacity, 6G will be able to connect trillion objects more flexibly and efficiently than 5G, instead of the current billion-level mobile devices. As a result, 6G networks become extremely dense, potentially 10 to 1000 times larger than 5G systems and networks
