UK Research and Innovation invest in TeraView’s 6G technology

21st January 2021

TeraView, the pioneer and leader in terahertz technology and solutions, has won development funding from the Sustainable Innovation Fund with Innovate UK, the United Kingdom’s innovation agency. This funding is specifically targeted at TeraView’s cutting edge technology for next-generation 6G network applications. 

TeraView has a vision to use its expertise and intellectual property to develop the building blocks of future 6G networks, which will use terahertz (THz) frequencies. As a knowledge and IP-rich company with decades of experience operating at THz frequencies, TeraView can bring the breadth and depth of its experience to accelerate the development of 6G.

Wireless connectivity is increasingly an important component of society and people’s everyday lives. The exponential growth in demand for high bandwidth applications such as multimedia streaming, the Internet of Things, control of autonomous vehicles and cloud computing has triggered the need for development of new technologies to provide high-bandwidth, reliable links in wireless environments, a key goal of future 6G networks. Uniquely 6G is also targeted to deliver other functions such as accurate positional information and imaging to support applications such a virtual reality.

Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation, is investing up to £191 million to fund single and collaborative research and development projects as part of the Sustainable Innovation Fund.
