China News Service, Chongqing, September 15th (Han Lu, Li Lutong) On the 15th, the 5G Innovation and Development Summit Forum with the theme of “5G New Infrastructure, Intelligence Leading the Future” was held in Chongqing. The reporter learned from the forum that there are currently more than 110 million 5G users in my country, and it is planned that by the end of 2020, there will be more than 600,000 5G base stations, covering cities above the prefecture level nationwide.
As one of the 8 theme forums of the 2020 Online China International Intelligent Industry Expo, the 5G Innovation and Development Summit Forum focuses on the key tasks of 5G new infrastructure to discuss and explore industry integration applications in future urban development. The forum adopted a combination of online and offline methods, bringing together a number of experts, scholars and business representatives to organize a summit dialogue on “5G Empowering the Digital Economy” to discuss the effects and trends of industrial transformation led by 5G from a global perspective.
Han Xia, director of the Information and Communications Administration of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said that since the issuance of 5G commercial licenses in my country for more than a year, the construction of 5G network infrastructure has been steadily advancing. Up to now, basic telecommunications companies have built more than 500,000 5G base stations, and the number of 5G terminal connections has exceeded 100 million. At the same time, the cultivation of 5G in key areas such as industrial Internet, Internet of Vehicles, medical care, education and other key areas is accelerating.
“At present, there are more than 800 5G+Industrial Internet projects under construction across the country, with an investment of more than 3.4 billion yuan (RMB, the same below). There are also more than 32,000 5G base stations applied to the Industrial Internet, which has basically formed data collection and perception. , auxiliary assembly, precise control and other typical application scenarios.” Han Xia said.
“In November this year, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) will complete the approval of the IMT-2020 specification. The fifth-generation mobile communication technology is expected to enable extensive links between people, things, data, applications, transportation systems and cities in a smart network communication environment. “The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) will develop globally applicable standards for IMT-2020 in a targeted manner to avoid the gap between 5G and numerous services,” Mario Manievic, director of the International Telecommunication Union’s Radiocommunication Bureau, said in a video speech. Interfere with each other, “to create a viable mobile ecosystem for the future.”
“At present, the focus of 5G development has shifted from technology research and development to application and popularization.” According to Liu Duo, president of the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, by August this year, 47 operators in 24 countries and regions around the world had begun to deploy and deploy Experiment with the public-facing 5G standalone network. “As of the end of August, monitoring data through our communication big data platform shows that my country has more than 110 million 5G users.” Liu Duo said that by the end of 2020, my country’s 5G base stations will exceed 600,000, covering the prefecture-level and above nationwide City.
Liu Duo revealed that according to relevant calculations, by 2025, 5G will drive China’s telecom operators’ network investment of 1.7 trillion yuan, and vertical industry network and equipment investment of 0.47 trillion yuan. At the same time, 5G commercial use will also drive 1.8 trillion yuan in mobile data traffic consumption, 2 trillion yuan in information service consumption, and 4.5 trillion yuan in terminal consumption.
How to promote the deepening of 5G integrated applications and start a new journey of 5G-enabled economic and social digital transformation? Yin Hao, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that 5G can empower the industrial Internet, and “5G+Industrial Internet” can solve such problems, create new products, spawn new models and new formats, reduce operating costs, improve production efficiency, and optimize corporate resources. configuration.
