People's Daily Online, Beijing, September 24 (Zhao Chao) On September 23, the Communications Construction Management Office of the administrative districts of the Beijing Municipal Administration of Communications was formally established.

Xie Cun, Director of the Information and Communication Development Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, stated at the awarding ceremony that my country has built the world's largest 5G network and gigabit access network.

  Since my country's 5G was officially commercialized in 2019, network construction has developed rapidly.

This year's government work report clearly stated that the construction of 5G networks and gigabit optical networks should be increased to enrich application scenarios.

  Xie Cun said that the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology took the implementation of a new type of information infrastructure strong foundation empowerment project as its starting point, focused on 5G and gigabit optical networks "dual gigabit networks", and coordinated the promotion of network construction and integrated applications, and achieved gratifying results.

  One is the overall increase in supply capacity.

The world's largest 5G network and gigabit access network have been built.

There are more than 1 million 5G base stations, covering all prefecture-level cities, more than 95% of counties and districts, and 35% of towns and villages across the country, and the number of 5G terminal users has exceeded 400 million.

More than 300 prefectures and cities have launched the Gigabit-in-home pilot program, and the Gigabit optical network has covered more than 200 million households.

  The second is to comprehensively improve the quality of development.

Network co-construction and sharing have been fully deepened. Supporting facilities such as poles, towers, and pipelines can benefit from the old without being built, and can be shared and not used alone. The world’s largest co-construction and shared 5G network has been built, with more than 460,000 5G shared base stations, saving more than 100 billion in investment. Over 10 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity can be saved every year, forming a resource-intensive, energy-saving and efficient green network.

  The third is the comprehensive enhancement of support capabilities.

Since the new crown pneumonia epidemic, my country's strong communication network has ensured the smooth flow of centralized Internet access under the centralized traffic outbreak, and has strongly supported the production and daily needs of the broad masses of remote office, online education, and telemedicine under the normalization of epidemic prevention and control.

  The fourth is the full display of the enabling effect of integration.

Various integrated applications are expanding to vertical industries and fields.

According to statistics, there are more than 10,000 5G application cases, covering more than 20 important industries and related fields of the national economy such as steel, electric power, mining, etc., forming a large number of colorful application scenarios and becoming a new engine leading my country's high-quality development .

  It is reported that the district communications construction management office of the Beijing Municipal Administration of Communications will give full play to its role in serving and supervising housing construction companies and information and communications companies, and work closely with the district governments to jointly promote the construction of communications infrastructure, in order to achieve the construction of Beijing To lay a solid foundation for the goal of becoming a benchmark city in the global digital economy.

  According to statistics released by the Beijing Municipal Administration of Communications a few days ago, as of the end of August, there were 45,700 5G base stations in Beijing.

Beijing's 5G construction "emerges both construction and use", while building and using, and using use to promote construction, to achieve applications in multiple scenarios such as medical care, cultural tourism, and campus.

  It is understood that Beijing has achieved 5G network coverage in key functional areas such as the capital functional core area, Beijing city sub-center, CBD, and Olympic central area.

Emerging businesses such as data centers, cloud computing, and big data have become the main growth points of fixed value-added services. Among them, cloud computing and big data businesses are growing prominently.

  At present, Beijing has about 20 5G base stations per 10,000 people, and the average number of 5G base stations and 10,000 people ranks first in the country.

There are 12.155 million 5G terminal users, accounting for nearly 30% of mobile phone users.

Relying on the extensive coverage of 5G networks, a series of application projects have emerged in Beijing.

A series of 5G application projects around the common people, such as remote medical visit emergency command, university campus 5G private network, and old Beijing 5G smart alley block, will successively land in Beijing this year.
