Thinking of the crane workers on the wharf, one would think of scenes of wind and sun, risky climbs, and no time to get off the plane. But at the Mawan 5G smart port in Shenzhen, Guangdong, the workers have retreated to the office building. In front of the screen, you can remotely control the crane with your fingers.

In the past, only one person could control a single crane, but now even a single person can control multiple cranes at the same time.

  Thanks to the nation's first 5G port commercial network built here, the 5G port machinery remote control has reduced the number of drivers for field and bridge operations by 65%, and workers have changed from blue-collar workers to white-collar workers.

  Like Mawan Port, the changes brought about by 5G industrialization are blooming everywhere.

Skyworth 5G+8K flexible smart factory integrates data on 181 key quality inspection points, shortening the detection cycle from 15 seconds/unit to 3 seconds/unit; BYD deploys 13 applications including 5G+AI to achieve lean production With flexible manufacturing, production efficiency is increased by 25%; China Southern Power Grid’s Pengcheng substation 5G smart grid makes full use of 5G+ drones and other technologies to realize automated inspections, which greatly improves efficiency and safety; Huawei’s 5G fully connected factory creates “three flows” "Yiduoyun", the production line adjustment time has been shortened from two weeks to two days, and a mobile phone is produced every 28.5 seconds.

  "Promoting the large-scale development of 5G applications is an important measure to promote high-quality economic development, empower the digital transformation of the manufacturing industry, and enhance the resilience of the industrial chain supply chain. It is of great significance for grasping the new development stage, implementing the new development concept, and building a new development pattern. "On July 25, the National 5G Industry Application Scale Development Conference was held in Dongguan City, Guangdong Province. Xiao Yaqing, Minister of Industry and Information Technology, said at the meeting.

At the on-site meeting, Xie Cun, Director of the Information and Communication Development Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, gave an in-depth interpretation of the "5G Application "Sailing" Action Plan (2021-2023)" (hereinafter referred to as the "Action Plan") officially released not long ago.

  The Action Plan has pointed out the direction for the development of 5G applications in China in the next three years. It is clear that by 2023, the development level of China's 5G applications will be significantly improved, and the overall strength will continue to increase, creating IT (information technology), CT (communication technology), and OT ( Operational technology) Deeply integrate the new ecology, achieve breakthroughs in the depth and breadth of 5G applications in key areas, build the dual pillars of the technology industry and standard system, further improve basic capabilities such as networks, platforms, and security, and gradually take shape of 5G applications.

In terms of specific targets, by 2023, the penetration rate of 5G in large industrial enterprises will exceed 35%, the penetration rate of individual users will exceed 40%, and the number of 5G demonstration applications in each key industry will exceed 100.

  In the past two years of commercial use of 5G, my country's 5G technological innovation has continued to make breakthroughs, network construction has been advancing rapidly, integrated applications have become increasingly active, and the industrial ecosystem has grown steadily, initially forming a systemic advantage.

In terms of network, China has built the world's largest 5G network at the speed of China, with 961,000 5G base stations, accounting for more than 70% of the world; in terms of the market, as of the end of June, the number of 5G terminal connections exceeded 365 million, accounting for 80% of the world. The user penetration rate reached 17.8%; in terms of application, the country has more than 10,000 5G application innovation cases, and the number and innovation are both in the world's first echelon. More than 600 tertiary hospitals across the country have carried out 5G+ emergency first aid, remote diagnosis, and health management More than 1,500 “5G+Industrial Internet” projects nationwide, 138 steel companies, 194 power companies, and 175 mines have achieved commercial landing of 5G applications.

  Dong Mingzhu, the chairman of Gree Electric Appliances, "shows up to say", mentioning that the black lamp factory that Gree is doing has realized unmanned operation in a large number of links, and the per capita efficiency has more than doubled. What used to require 10,000 people to do before, now 3,000 people It can be supported from left to right.

She said that 5G is a disruptive thing for the production, R&D, and management of enterprises, especially for manufacturing enterprises, the development of 5G is irreversible.

  Xiao Yaqing emphasized that the entire industry should take the "5G Application "Sailing" Action Plan" as the starting point to build, develop and apply 5G, and make every effort to promote application innovation in the 5G industry to better serve the high-quality development of the economy and society.

It is necessary to adhere to the demand orientation, establish a batch of high-level application benchmarks, form a batch of mature application solutions, and build a batch of industry-specific application clusters.

Adhere to the problem orientation, strengthen the supply capacity of key industrial links such as chips and modules, enhance the support capacity of 5G networks, and strengthen the ability to ensure application security.

Adhere to results-oriented, accelerate the replication and promotion of 5G applications, strengthen cross-departmental, cross-industry, and cross-field collaboration, and accelerate the establishment of a cooperative and win-win development model of product innovation, value creation, and benefit sharing.

Promote the large-scale development of 5G applications in practice, create new products, new business formats, and new models for 5G applications, and provide solid support for digital transformation, intelligent upgrading, and integration innovation in various economic and social fields.
