Commercial 5G promotes digital transformation
Industry experts said that China’s continuous efforts to establish network connections and expand the terminal equipment ecosystem have promoted the rapid growth of 5G applications in the country. Creating new opportunities for the commercial use of the latest telecommunications technology.
They said that 5G is a key information infrastructure that can promote the interconnection of everything. It is also a driving force for the digital transformation of the economy and society.
During 2020 (the year of COVID-19), China has made great progress in 5G applications in the context of establishing “new infrastructure”. Which refers to new digital assets, technologies, related physical facilities. Support installations such as 5G networks, big data centers, artificial intelligence applications and industrial Internet.
The impact of the pandemic on the economy and society requires the acceleration of the development of new services. New services piggy-backed in the development of emerging technologies such as 5G.
Lv Tingjie, vice president of the China Information Economics Association of the Beijing-based research institute.
The China is entering a new era of digital transformation. 5G commercial networks will be widely deployed, and 5G technology deeply integrated into more areas.
Lyu cited the government’s continuous efforts to accelerate the construction of “new infrastructure”. She believes that new growth opportunities will emerge faster in the next 20 years.
He said that ultra-fast 5G technology will provide up to 100 times the data speed of the coverage area, with almost instant response time. In the 5G era, higher reliability and lower latency can achieved. Thereby making the Internet of Things more effective and making new self-driving cars a reality.
Lyu said: Driven by 5G-enabled automotive Internet, Internet of Things, and Industrial Internet. We will see great potential in the next era of digital transformation. “This will create new growth opportunities for many small and medium-sized enterprises. These SMEs can explore innovative 5G applications in specific vertical industries.”
Zhou Xibing, a senior analyst who pays close attention to 5G technology, said that 5G will play a key role in promoting the transformation and upgrading of traditional enterprises.
5G technology will be widely combined with AI and the Internet of Things to promote the rapid development of emerging fields.
Such as virtual reality games, online education, driverless cars and smart logistics. Which will further enhance the core competitiveness of Chinese companies and enable them Can have a greater say in the global supply chain.” Zhou said.
Liu Liehong, the deputy minister of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. Stated at the recent telecommunications and information society conference that China is a global leader in 5G independent networks, industrial capabilities, and applications and innovation.
According to data from the Ministry of Commerce of China, as of the end of March. China had established more than 819,000 5G base stations, accounting for more than 70% of the global total. Approximately 280 million mobile device users have joined the 5G network, accounting for more than 80% of the global total.
The country’s 5G standard essential patent claims account for more than 38% of the world’s total.
Liu noted the huge growth potential of 5G development. He said that this will not only promote the development of national digital industrialization. But also effectively promote industrial digitization across the country.
Liu said that by 2025, China expected to spend 1.2 trillion yuan (approximately US$186.6 billion) on 5G network construction. Drive 8 trillion yuan in related information consumption and 2.93 trillion yuan in economic added value. .
A new white paper issued by the China Institute of Information and Communication Technology shows that by 2020
5G will have a direct economic output of RMB 810.9 billion in China, creating an economic value added of RMB 189.7 billion.
According to the white paper, the rapid development of ultra-fast 5G wireless technology will also promote the rapid development of information and community technology. Inject new impetus into innovation-driven economic development, and create new employment opportunities in the country.
When looking forward to the next two to three years, the college stated that the 5G industry will enter a critical period of 5G applications. As well as the accelerated transformation and growth of enterprises in this industry.
In order to promote the sustainable and healthy development of 5G. The white paper calls for greater efforts to further accelerate the pace of 5G network construction. Continue to increase R&D investment to promote innovation, and increase support for the cultivation and promotion of 5G. Support industrial applications.
Wang Peng, an outstanding researcher at Communication University of China, agreed with the general idea of this white paper. He said that 5G will promote an unprecedented revolution in production and lifestyle, and provide new impetus and solutions for the country’s high-quality economic development. Wang said: “The deployment of 5G will greatly promote the development of a wide range of fields, including artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, online games, virtual reality, augmented reality, smart cities, telemedicine and smart homes.”
