Foreign media concern: China ahead of schedule to complete the construction of 5G base station target

Media said that during the outbreak of home life to increase the demand for the Internet, mines, ports, hospitals and other scenes of 5G application mode makes the 5G halo flashing. China opened 690,000 5G base stations at the end of September, ahead of this year’s target of 500,000. BEIJING, Oct 31 (Reuters) – How far is China from converting 5G applications into the real productivity of the digital economy and the network economy at a time when the construction of 5G terminals and base stations is beginning to take shape?

Media concern: China ahead of schedule to complete the construction of 5G base station target

Faced with questions about whether 5G investment is too ahead of the times, Chinese authorities recently said that moderate ahead of the construction is a common feature of public infrastructure. At present, 5G has entered a critical stage of development, application promotion is the focus of the current work.

Reported that, in fact, in the next two to three years, China’s 5G construction and development will continue to rise stage, in technical standards, network construction, especially in the application of exploration, there is still a lot of work to be done.

In the first three quarters of this year, the information transmission, software and information technology services production index grew 10.1 percent, up 2.2 percentage points from the first half of the year, and revenue from cloud computing, big data, data centers, and the Internet of Things grew rapidly, according to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

Investment in new information infrastructure, represented by 5G, has reportedly increased. By the end of September, 690,000 5G base stations had been opened nationwide, and cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hangzhou had achieved 5G network coverage.

China’s 5G network has been on the “fast track” since 5G licences were issued last year. According to the latest data from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, more than 800,000 5G base stations have been deployed worldwide so far, and more than 150 million 5G users in China have been deployed. This means that China’s 5G construction progress far exceeds that of other countries, ranking first in the world.

The report also said that although the equipment network investment is high, and 5G mobile phone prices and use costs are expensive, but this year’s outbreak has become a catalyst for 5G accelerated construction. During the outbreak, the network load is full, China has withstood this test, the network moderately ahead of the construction is obviously to credit. It also gives everyone a taste of the sweetness of the 5G network. Local governments also attach great importance to the development of 5G, from special planning, resource opening, site coordination, base station electricity and other aspects of strong support, support can be said to be unprecedented. This fully released the policy dividend, reduced the difficulty of network construction and enterprise management pressure, greatly stimulated the enthusiasm of operators to build, ahead of schedule to complete this year’s construction of 500,000 base stations.

Chinese operators are evaluating whether to add 5G base station construction this year. Obviously 5G has entered a critical stage of development, application promotion is the focus of the current work.

Reported that when China accelerates the layout of 5G strategy, high investment costs and development prospects are also the focus of social attention. In particular, there is clearly no ready-made template for achieving this goal by transforming it into real productivity and becoming the growth point that will lead China’s new economy. There are also those in society who believe that a modest ahead of infrastructure is necessary, but that over-forwarding in some areas can drive up user costs or unsustainable public sector debt. If you can’t find the scenario, digesting costs can be a challenge.

As for how to reduce the high construction and application costs, the authorities said that any network, with the deployment of large-scale, network costs will be lower and lower. And the broad 5G application prospects will ensure the sustainability of investment and construction. 5G is a very challenging “blue sea” from traditional, individual-oriented to a wide range of industries, involving many emerging areas, some of which have made progress and some of which are still being explored. In the next three years, China’s 5G is still in the rising stage, still need to maintain strategic strength, respect the technology evolution, network construction, market development laws, to comprehensively accelerate the pace of innovation in 5G applications, and strive to form a “to build and promote the use, to use to promote the construction” of the 5G benign development model.

At a forum in Beijing in mid-October, Ding Wei, Huawei’s managing director and president of operator BG, suggested that the core goal of China’s next phase of 5G is to create the most successful 5G from the perspective of experience and commercial closure. He believes that in the early stages of the current 5G network deployment, China’s 5G industry still has a lot of work to do if it is to be more successful than countries such as South Korea and Switzerland, which have earlier 5G deployments. For example, in the personal business area, there is still a gap in user experience, that is, “fake, dumb, poor” problem, on the other hand, 5G mobile phone users in the region may not have 5G network coverage, overall, “machine”, “net”, “set” match is still not high.
