Recently, Wen Ku, director general of the information and Communication Development Department of the Ministry of industry and information technology, said that the construction of 5g network has been accelerated, and more than 480000 5g base stations have been built in China. The number of 5g terminal connections continues to grow. At present, the number of 5g internet terminal connections has exceeded 100 million.
Wenku also pointed out that in 2020, the global 5g commercial development will take shape. According to incomplete statistics, by the end of July 2020, 99 network operators in 46 countries / regions have indicated that they have started to provide 5g services. The United States, South Korea, Europe, Japan and other major countries and regions have actively accelerated the construction of 5g and carried out the integrated application of 5g. The industrial ecology of 5g has gradually enriched and the application exploration has been deepened. The effectiveness of 5g in promoting economic and social development has initially appeared.
At the meeting, Wenku put forward three suggestions for future 5g development: 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, and strive to build a 5g network with wide coverage, advanced technology and excellent quality as soon as possible;
Second, actively build application industry ecology, encourage communication operation enterprises to cooperate with artificial intelligence, cloud computing, big data and other enterprises, jointly carry out comprehensive application solutions for vertical industries, and accelerate in-depth application in key fields such as intelligent manufacturing, Internet of vehicles, and medical treatment;
Third, deepen international exchanges and cooperation, deepen international consensus, and continuously promote the improvement of 5g global unified standard. At the same time, in addition to international cooperation in technology, standards, industry and other aspects, we should also strengthen cooperation in application, share excellent application cases, and jointly explore business models, so as to promote the integration and development of 5g in various countries all over the world.
