China has built more than 480000 5g base stations and more than 100 million 5g connected terminals

Beijing, September 5 (Zhao Chao) – on September 4, the 2020 China International Trade in services Fair opened in Beijing. At the “5g emerging service trade development forum” held at the service trade fair this morning, Wen Ku, director of the information and Communication Development Department of the Ministry of industry and information technology, introduced the construction and development of China’s 5g network: up to now, China has built more than 480000 5g base stations and more than 100 million 5g internet terminal connections.

At the Forum on the same day, Wen Ku said that the current scientific and technological revolution and industrial change are changing with each passing day, and the vigorous development of digital economy is profoundly changing the way of human life and production. 5g, as the main development direction of the new generation of mobile communication technology, interweaves with cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies, integrates and innovates, and constantly spawns new models, new formats, and new industries, which strongly supports the transformation and development of economic and social digitization, networking, and intelligence.

According to incomplete statistics, by the end of July 2020, there are 46 countries and regions in the world, and 99 network operators have indicated that they will provide 5g services. Major countries and regions such as the United States, South Korea, Europe and Japan are actively accelerating the construction of 5g, carrying out 5g integration applications, gradually enriching the 5g industrial ecology and deepening the application exploration In recent years, the effectiveness of 5g in promoting economic and social development has initially appeared.

Wen Ku said that at present, China is in an important period of 5g network construction and application cultivation

First, continuously improve the network supply capacity. Telecom operators should focus on the deployment planning of 5g network construction, accelerate the network construction in major cities including Beijing, and strive to build a 5g network industry with wide coverage, advanced technology and excellent quality as soon as possible.

We should work together to accelerate the maturity of end-to-end network slicing and other technical solutions, break through the bottleneck of network supply capacity, strengthen the innovation of industry 5g private network mode, promote the construction and implementation of 5g virtual private network, and accelerate the scale development of industry network coverage and application.

The second is to actively build the application industry ecology. It is necessary to encourage communication operation enterprises to deeply cooperate with artificial intelligence, cloud computing, big data and other enterprises, jointly carry out solutions for comprehensive application in vertical industries, speed up in-depth application in key fields such as intelligent manufacturing, Internet of vehicles and medical treatment, explore and form a replicable and promotable business model, enrich 5g application scenarios, deepen 5g integrated application, and build a prosperous ecosystem.

Third, deepen international exchanges and cooperation. Wen Ku pointed out that it is necessary to deepen international consensus and continuously promote the improvement of 5g global unified standards. At the same time, in addition to international cooperation in technology, standards, industry and other aspects, it is also necessary to strengthen cooperation in application, jointly explore business models, and promote the integrated development of 5g across industries in countries all over the world.
