5g has a huge enabling value for the industry, which is different from 3G and 4G, which are more personal consumers. Whether it is in emerging fields such as artificial intelligence, automatic driving, VR / AR and ultra high definition video, or in traditional industries such as agriculture and manufacturing, the deployment and commercial use of 5g will boost a new round of reform and help the transformation, upgrading and innovation breakthrough of related industries. Therefore, all countries in the world attach great importance to 5g construction.
On December 24, according to the press conference of the State Council Information Office, in 2020, China will build 580000 new 5g base stations, promote the co construction and sharing of 330000 5g base stations, and the number of 5g terminal connections has exceeded 200 million. Recently, the Minister of the Ministry of industry and information technology said that in 2021, 5g network construction and application will be promoted in an orderly manner, 5g coverage in major cities will be accelerated, co construction and sharing will be promoted, and more than 600000 5g base stations will be built.
It can be seen from the above data that China’s 5g construction speed is fast, and the number of new 5g base stations and 5g terminal connections are among the top in the world. On the basis of 580000 new 5g base stations in 2020, it is reasonable to set the target of 600000 in 2021. This figure basically maintains the pace of this year’s construction, and the construction speed still maintains a fast level, which is conducive to the stable and rapid development of 5g in China.
With the continuous expansion of 5g network scale and the basic realization of 5g coverage in cities above prefecture level, the main focus of 5g development in China in 2021 should be on the commercial level of 5g. After all, no matter how much 5g infrastructure construction, if it can not be effectively transformed into economic value and social value, it will be a huge waste of resources, which is not in line with China’s original intention to accelerate the construction of 5g.
Although it seems that the growth is limited to maintain the construction goal similar to that of 2020, in fact, from a global perspective, it is already quite a large scale of construction. With the continuous construction of 5g base station in China, the scale of 5g network in China will be the first in the world for a long time.
Therefore, in 2021, while steadily promoting the construction of 5g base stations, China will make more exploration in 5g business, and take the lead to open a breakthrough in important business scenarios such as ultra high definition video in combination with the local reality and policy advantages, so as to lay a foundation for the large-scale business of 5g.
