The standardization procedure of the fifth generation communication has already been completed and global spread has launched. To maintain the competitive advantage of wireless communication, researchers conceptualize next-generation (6th generation, 6G) wireless communication systems aimed at founding the stratification of communication needs of the 2030s. This article highlights the most promising research areas in the recent literature on the overall trends of the 6G project to support this view. It discusses the development and analysis of 6G wireless communication technology, which is projected to be implemented in the near future. Networks based on 6G wireless technology seem to be the most promising and developing field in the field of wireless technology. The article indicates the emergence and development of 6G to lead to a new wave of developments in the field of the Internet of Things (IoT). It touches upon the services applied during the implementation of the previous generation (5th generation, 5G) technologies and the emerging problems. It also reviews the benefits and challenges associated with the development of 6G wireless communication, which is designed to provide a better communication system in the future and to get many new perspectives (pp.49-57).
