This Time, 5G Is Really Coming

Currently, global 5G is entering a critical period of commercial deployment. By sticking to the combination of independent innovation and open cooperation, China's 5G industry has established a competitive advantage. 5G standard is a unified international standard jointly formulated by the global industry, and the necessary patents of the standards declared by China account for more than 30%. In the technology test stage, many foreign enterprises, such as nokia, Ericsson, qualcomm and Intel, have been deeply involved. With the joint efforts of all parties, 5G in China has already obtained the commercial basis. The ministry of industry and information technology will issue 5G commercial licenses, marking the first year of 5G commercial development in China.

 

In what aspects does China's 5G have competitive advantages, and is 5G commercial construction open to foreign enterprises? The reporter interviewed gong daning, a senior engineer at the institute of policy and economics of the China academy of information and communications research, and explained the topics of public concern.

 

China's 5G industry has established a competitive advantage

 

Currently, global 5G is entering a critical period of commercial deployment. By sticking to the combination of independent innovation and open cooperation, China's 5G industry has established a competitive advantage.

 

In terms of technical standards, 5G concepts, application scenarios and technical indicators advocated by China have been included in the international telecommunication union (ITU) definition of 5G, and key technologies proposed by Chinese enterprises, such as flexible system design, polarization codes, large-scale antenna and new network architecture, have become the focus of international standards, gong said.

 

As of May 2019, a total of 28 global enterprises have declared necessary patents for 5G standards, with China's enterprises accounting for more than 30 percent, ranking first.

 

In terms of industrial development, China takes the lead in launching 5G technology research and development test, accelerating 5G equipment research and development and industrialization. At present, China's 5G mid-band system equipment, terminal chips and smart phones are in the first tier of the global industry.

 

 

The reporter previously learned from the ministry of industry and information technology that, with the joint efforts of all parties in the industry, 5G technology and products have become increasingly mature, and the main links of the industrial chain have basically reached the commercial level, with the conditions for commercial deployment.

 

China's 5G research absorbs global wisdom

 

Over the years, Chinese enterprises have actively participated in the global communication standards organization, network construction and industry promotion, contributing to the development of the global mobile communication industry. China's 5G research and promotion process has also absorbed global wisdom.

 

Gong daning said that China has always adhered to the concept of openness, inclusiveness, cooperation and win-win, and worked with the global industry to promote 5G development. In 2013, China established the imt-2020 (5G) promotion group, and many well-known foreign enterprises including Ericsson, nokia, qualcomm, Intel, rod and Schwartz are members of the group. Based on the promotion group platform, domestic and foreign enterprises shall jointly carry out technical research, technical testing and product testing and verification, jointly formulate technical specifications and test specifications, and actively participate in the testing.

 

In the technology testing stage, nokia, Ericsson, qualcomm, Intel and other foreign enterprises have been deeply involved.

 

Global system equipment, chips, terminals, test instruments and other enterprises cooperate and promote together, which plays an important role in accelerating the development and maturity of China's 5G industry chain.

 

Foreign enterprises are welcome to participate actively

 

Gong daning said that the global mobile communication industry has formed a pattern of "mutual benefit and win-win cooperation". In the 4G era, many foreign enterprises have already participated in China's mobile communication market and established good cooperative relations with China's telecom operators, which are an important part of China's mobile communication market and have made important contributions to the development of China's mobile communication industry.

 

 

The ministry of industry and information technology will issue 5G commercial licenses, marking the first year of 5G commercial development in China.

 

"We will as always welcome foreign enterprises to actively participate in China's 5G network construction and application promotion, continue to deepen cooperation, jointly seek 5G development and innovation, and share the achievements of China's 5G development," said gong daning.
