SMM News: the chairman of China Mobile said at the China Mobile 5G + press conference today that China Mobile will give full play to the advantages of station location and frequency resources to speed up the construction of the world's largest 5G network. In 2019, China Mobile will build more than 50,000 5G base stations nationwide and provide 5G commercial services in more than 50 cities. In 2020, China Mobile will further expand its network coverage to provide 5G commercial services in all prefectural cities and cities across the country.
A few days ago, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued 5G business licences to four operators, China Mobile, China Unicom, China Telecom and China Radio and Television. This marks that China has entered the 5G era six months to a year ahead of schedule. At the same time, operators have officially started the construction of 5G networks, starting or starting the peak period of domestic 5G investment in the second half of the year.
As a new generation of information infrastructure 5G construction, upstream connected to 5G equipment providers, downstream connected to hundreds of millions of mobile phones and other 5G clients, the middle plays a core role is telecom operators. The network construction process of operators directly determines when users can use 5G high-speed network.
Because the transmission distance of 5G signal is shorter than 4G, it is estimated that the number of 5G base stations in China will be 1.3 times that of 4G, and the number of 5G base stations in China may eventually reach more than 8 million. From the second half of 2019 to the start of 5G construction, to 2020 5G commercial real launch, so that more users faster use of 5G network, operators to do what?
As the fourth 5G communication operator after Unicom, Mobile and Telecom, China Radio and Television is different from the other three operators in the construction of 5G network. As for the future development plan, Zeng Qingjun, vice president of radio and television, said: "the 5G network will be a high starting point and high-tech network that brings together modern radio and television communications and Internet of things services." so that the majority of users can really experience the intelligent radio and television services brought about by modern ultra-high-definition television, modern Internet of things, and even socialized intelligent city services, which can enable China's technology industry services to promote the trend of 5G leading in an all-round way. "
Reviewing the development process of the world mobile communication, after the history of "1G blank, 2G backward, 3G follow, 4G parallel", China's position is gradually changing.
Since the launch of the 5G test in 2016, in a short period of two years, China has completed three stages: 5G key technology verification, technical scheme verification and system networking verification.
For 5G commercial landing and promotion and construction, the major operators have long been rubbing hands, fully prepared.
I believe that in the near future, for ordinary consumers, those used to be "imaginary" future life will become a reality.
