China News Service, Chongqing, September 15 (Han Lu, Li Lutong) On the 15th, the 5G Innovation and Development Summit Forum with the theme of "5G New Infrastructure, Smartly Leading the Future" was held in Chongqing.
The reporter learned from the forum that my country currently has more than 110 million 5G users and plans to have more than 600,000 5G base stations by the end of 2020, covering cities above prefecture-level nationwide.
As one of the 8 theme forums of the 2020 China International Smart Industry Expo, the 5G Innovation and Development Summit Forum focuses on the key tasks of 5G new infrastructure, discussing and exploring the industry integration applications in future urban development.
The forum adopted a combination of online and offline methods, bringing together a number of experts, scholars and business representatives to organize a summit dialogue on “5G Empowering the Digital Economy” to discuss the effects and trends of industrial transformation led by 5G from a global perspective.

Up to now, basic telecommunications companies have built more than 500,000 5G base stations, and the number of 5G terminal connections has exceeded 100 million.
At the same time, cultivating 5G to integrate applications in key areas such as industrial Internet, car networking, medical care, and education is accelerating.
“At present, there are more than 800 5G+ industrial Internet projects under construction nationwide, with an investment of more than 3.4 billion yuan (RMB, the same below). The number of 5G base stations applied to the industrial Internet has also exceeded 32,000, and data collection and perception have basically been formed. , Auxiliary assembly, precision control and other typical application scenarios." Han Xia said.
"In November this year, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) will complete the approval of the IMT-2020 specification. The fifth-generation mobile communication technology is expected to realize a wide range of connections between people, things, data, applications, transportation systems and cities in the intelligent network communication environment. "The Director of the International Telecommunication Union’s Radiocommunication Bureau, Mario Manevich, said in a video speech that the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) will develop globally applicable standards for IMT-2020 in a targeted manner, so as to avoid 5G and many services.

How to promote the deepening of 5G integration applications and start a new journey of 5G empowering economic and social digital transformation?
Yin Hao, academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that 5G can empower the industrial Internet, and "5G+Industrial Internet" can solve such problems, create new products, spawn new models and new business formats, reduce operating costs, improve production efficiency, and optimize corporate resources.
