At the “5g ecological forum of 2020 China Internet Conference”, Wen Ku, director of the information and Communication Development Department of the Ministry of industry and information technology, pointed out that by the end of June, more than 360000 5g base stations had been opened in China. In addition, he put forward three suggestions on promoting 5g development.
At present, China’s Internet industry has entered a mature and stable stock development stage. As the main development direction of the new generation of information and communication technology, 5g will inject strong power into the reconstruction and upgrading of the Internet industry with its remarkable characteristics such as high bandwidth, low delay and massive connection, and open an important general technology in the era of human-computer interaction and interconnection of all things.
The development of 5g has been highly valued by the CPC Central Committee and the State Council. General secretary Xi Jinping repeatedly pointed out that we should speed up the construction of new infrastructure such as 5G network, and enrich the application scenario of 5G technology. This year’s government work report also clearly pointed out that we should strengthen the construction of new infrastructure, develop a new generation of information network and expand 5g applications. Wen Ku pointed out that the Ministry of industry and information technology has thoroughly implemented the decisions of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council, network construction and application development. In terms of network construction, 5g network construction will be comprehensively accelerated in 2020, and the Ministry of industry and information technology will actively promote basic telecom operators to overcome the impact of the epidemic and catch up with the construction progress. By the end of June, more than 360000 5g base stations had been opened in China.
The last leg of a journey marks the halfway point. Wen Ku pointed out that while 5g is developing rapidly, we should also see that 5g still faces many problems and challenges such as integration with vertical industries, application needs to be deeply explored, business model needs to be explored, and key technology research capability needs to be improved.
Promoting the development of 5g is a systematic project, which needs long-term promotion, continuous accumulation, continuous breakthrough, unremitting efforts to create a good ecology, and gradually give play to the scale effect and driving role of 5g. Wen Ku made three suggestions on this.
First, we should create an open ecosystem of 5g, promote basic telecom operation enterprises, improve 5g network, provide convenient, flexible, reliable and safe network services for enterprises, and promote the common development of network and application. We will deepen exchanges and cooperation among basic telecommunications enterprises, network equipment manufacturing enterprises, terminal manufacturing enterprises, system integration enterprises and various vertical application industries, guide industry leading enterprises and small and medium-sized enterprises to complement each other’s advantages and develop in a coordinated manner, support international enterprises to participate in China’s 5g construction and application, share the development achievements of 5, improve the breadth of opening-up and depth of cooperation, and achieve win-win cooperation.
The second is to build a 5g innovation ecosystem, continuously optimize the innovation policy environment, aim at the forefront of 5g industrial development, improve the original innovation ability, increase the R & D and innovation of leading, key and basic core technologies, create a technological innovation ecosystem, meet the needs of 5g integrated applications, accelerate the innovation of application technologies, and promote the integration and innovation of 5g and artificial intelligence big data technologies, Build an application innovation ecosystem.
Third, pay attention to building 5g healthy ecology. On the one hand, strengthen the research on 5g security technology and standards, vigorously promote 5g security technology research, build a global mutual trust security evaluation and certification system, encourage the role of ITU, 3GPP and other international organizations, launch unified security certification specifications, and jointly meet 5g security technology challenges. On the other hand, deeply integrate into the 5g industrial chain of global division of labor and cooperation, and build a healthy ecosystem of benign interaction, collaborative research, openness and win-win results.
5g will bring convenience and efficiency to people’s production and life and provide a solid foundation for economic and social innovation and development. Wenku hopes to take this opportunity to share the development opportunities of 5g, create the prosperity of 5g industry and help the high-quality development of 5g industry.
