(2020 Service Trade Fair) China has built 5G base stations with more than 480,000 terminal connections, which exceed 100 million

  China News Service, Beijing, September 5 (Reporter Xia Bin Pang Wuji) Wen Ku, Director of the Information and Communication Development Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China, said at the 2020 China International Trade in Services "5G Emerging Service Trade Development Forum" that China has completed There are more than 480,000 5G base stations and more than 100 million terminal connections on the 5G network. 5G applications are continuously enriched, covering industries, medical, media, and transportation.

  Wenku pointed out that the global 5G commercial development will begin to take shape in 2020. According to incomplete statistics, as of the end of July 2020, 99 network operating companies in 46 countries and regions around the world have expressed to provide 5G services, the United States, South Korea, Europe , Japan and other major countries and regions are actively accelerating 5G construction and launching 5G integration applications. The 5G industry ecology is gradually enriched, application exploration continues to deepen, and the effect of 5G in promoting economic and social development has initially appeared.

  For the future development of 5G, Wenku put forward three suggestions.

First, continue to improve network supply capabilities. Telecom operators must focus on planning for 5G network construction and deployment, accelerate network construction in major cities, and strive to build a 5G network with extensive coverage, advanced technology and high quality as soon as possible.

The industry must reasonably accelerate the maturation of end-to-end network slicing and other technical solutions, break through the bottleneck of network supply capacity, strengthen the innovation of the industry's 5G private network model, promote the implementation of 5G virtual private network construction, and accelerate the industry network coverage and application scale development of.

  The second is to actively build the application industry ecology, encourage communication operation companies to cooperate with artificial intelligence, cloud computing, big data and other companies to jointly develop comprehensive application solutions for vertical industries, and accelerate in-depth applications in key areas such as intelligent manufacturing, car networking, and medical care. Explore the formation of a replicable and extendable business model, enrich 5G application scenarios, deepen 5G integration applications, and build a prosperous ecosystem.

  The third is to deepen international exchanges and cooperation, deepen international consensus, continue to promote the improvement of 5G global unified standards, and at the same time strengthen cooperation in applications, share excellent application cases, jointly explore business models, and promote the integration and development of 5G across industries in countries around the world.
