From November 14th to 16th, the China Mobile Global Partner Conference was held in Guangzhou. With the official commercialization of 5G in China and the official release of 5G packages by operators, discussions on the commercial application of 5G and the next development of 5G have become the focus of the conference. Qualcomm brought a wealth of 5G terminals, innovative applications and technology demonstrations from many partners to the conference.
5G accelerates the deployment of commercial terminals gathering
The deployment speed of 5G has far exceeded any previous generation of wireless communication technology. Currently, more than 30 5G commercial networks have been deployed in more than 20 countries around the world; more than 40 terminal manufacturers have launched 5G terminals. Among them, China Mobile has opened nearly 50,000 5G base stations in more than 50 cities, officially providing 5G commercial services, and plans to expand the scale of 5G deployment to 340 cities next year. The industry consensus is that the development and prosperity of 5G are inseparable from extensive industrial cooperation. Today, China Mobile also joined many partners to officially launch the "5G+ Comprehensive Opening Cooperation Plan."
The 5G commercial curtain has been opened, and the 5G terminal experience is within reach. According to IHS forecasts, global shipments of 5G smartphones are expected to exceed 200 million units in 2020. Making 5G within reach is inseparable from the close cooperation of the industry chain. At present, more than 230 5G terminal products using Qualcomm 5G solutions have been released or are being designed around the world, including products from many Chinese manufacturers. At the China Mobile Global Partner Conference, many commercial 5G terminals gathered at the Qualcomm booth, including Lenovo Z6 Pro 5G, Nubia mini 5G, Samsung Note10+ 5G, OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, OPPO Reno 5G, vivo NEX 3 5G, Vivo iQOO Pro 5G version, Xiaomi 9 Pro 5G, ZTE Axon 10 Pro 5G and China Mobile Pioneer X1, etc. These terminals basically use Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem and radio frequency system. Visitors can experience them on the spot with these smartphones To extremely fast 5G connection.
In order to better support the 5G development process and allow 5G to expand at various terminal levels and benefit many consumers faster, Qualcomm has launched multiple generations of 5G commercial solutions, including Snapdragon X50, Snapdragon X55, and cross-Snapdragon The 5G mobile platform product portfolio of 8 series, 7 series and 6 series accelerates the commercialization of 5G on a large scale. Qualcomm also leads the transition from 5G terminal design models to system-level solutions through a complete commercial chipset solution that integrates modems, RF transceivers and RF front ends, helping terminal manufacturers reduce product development complexity and speed up time to market.
In addition to smart phones, in the 5G era, CPE will play an important role to meet the connectivity needs of industries, families and individuals. Partners such as China Mobile, ZTE, Gosuncn and WEWINS have all launched CPE products equipped with Snapdragon 5G solutions. In addition, 14 models of 5G modules equipped with Snapdragon X55 5G modem and radio frequency system from Quectel, Fibocom, MAG, Wingtech, Gosuncn, Longgang Technology and other manufacturers also appeared on the Qualcomm booth.

At the exhibition site, Haieryi's 5G smart full-length mirror equipped with the Snapdragon X55 module attracted many visitors to stop and experience.
5G expansion spawns a broader 5G economy
2020 will be an important year for 5G "scale expansion". In 2017, Qualcomm commissioned the "5G Economy" report independently researched by IHS Markit to conduct research on the profound changes that 5G will bring to the global economy and a wide range of industries. In the past two years, thanks to the early completion of the 5G standard and the subsequent accelerated global 5G commercial deployment, IHS Markit has updated the report to show that by 2035, 5G will create 13.2 trillion US dollars in economic output, which is higher than the 2017 forecast. An increase of 1 trillion dollars.
China Mobile Chairman Yang Jie also said in his speech that the digital economy has become the main driving force for economic growth. With the advent of 5G, the status of the information and communication industry as the backbone of the development of the digital economy will become more prominent and will also usher in a broader space for development. Chairman Yang Jie also announced China Mobile’s 2020 5G leadership plan, planning to develop 70 million 5G customers next year, sell 100 million 5G mobile phones, 50 million home pan-smart terminals and 15 million industry modules.
Behind this is an interconnected world driven by 5G. Qualcomm is committed to promoting 5G to drive innovation and change in more fields through the low latency and high reliability of 5G technology. For example, the "always online, always connected" Snapdragon can provide users with the same fast wireless connection experience and powerful computing as smartphones. In the future, the high-speed and low-latency connectivity brought by 5G will better bring a breakthrough PC experience for consumer and enterprise users.
In addition, Qualcomm is actively exploring the application of combining 5G and XR (including VR virtual reality and AR augmented reality). By connecting to a high-performance 5G mobile phone, a large amount of load is processed on the smart phone, so that the head-mounted display device can adopt a more comfortable and portable design, and provide users with a more friendly interactive experience. At present, multiple AR and VR devices supported by Qualcomm technology are changing multiple application scenarios such as remote assistants, training, education, and industrial testing.
Technology-driven innovation 5G creates unlimited possibilities
Apart from expansion, 5G technology will continue to evolve. Cutting-edge technologies such as millimeter waves and small base stations can help realize the full potential of 5G. At this conference, Qualcomm also presented these cutting-edge technologies in scenarios, which helped the industry to understand more clearly the important role of these core technologies in promoting the continuous evolution and further deployment of 5G.
Take millimeter wave evolution as an example. The realization of millimeter wave mobility was once regarded as an impossible technical challenge by the industry. Qualcomm has started basic research on millimeter wave and advanced radio frequency technology more than ten years ago and has successfully proven to the industry Millimeter wave can be well applied in smart phones. Almost all operators in the world planning to deploy 5G millimeter wave are actively cooperating with Qualcomm to carry out millimeter wave-based testing and deployment. Qualcomm has become one of the key leaders in global mobile millimeter wave technology. At present, some countries have deployed millimeter wave networks to demonstrate the advantages of this technology, and some terminal manufacturers have also launched commercial smartphones that support 5G millimeter waves. Last month, Qualcomm and ZTE successfully implemented China’s first smartphone-based 5G millimeter wave interoperability test, achieving an important development milestone in the verification of China’s millimeter wave technology, laying a foundation for further discussions on China’s millimeter wave commercial deployment .
As we all know, 5G is not only a wireless communication technology, but also an innovative platform for the next decade. In the future, the forms of 5G terminals will be more diverse; the combination of 5G and AI, big data, edge computing, Internet of Things and other technologies will also inject new development forces into different industries. As a new starting point for 5G, Qualcomm will continue to deepen and expand cooperation with partners such as China Mobile to jointly drive a smart and interconnected future with unlimited possibilities.
China Mobile Henan Company and Zhongyuan Internal Distribution Group Co., Ltd. signed a strategic cooperation agreement to jointly build a 5G smart factory.
With the advent of the 5G era, the phrase "4G changes life, 5G changes society" is no longer just a simple slogan, people will feel the tremendous changes and surprises brought about by 5G. As the fifth-generation mobile communication technology, 5G is an important engine for future technological change and economic development, and will bring unlimited imagination to our future lives. So, why does 5G come, what can it do, and how will it change our lives?
Why does 5G come?
In recent years, the country has attached great importance to the development of the digital economy. It has repeatedly proposed the implementation of the "Internet power" strategy and the promotion of the "Internet +" action plan, and has emphasized the need to promote the development of fifth-generation mobile communications in the government work report for two consecutive years. On June 6, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology officially issued a 5G commercial license, and China officially entered the first year of 5G commercial use.
When it comes to 5G, most people's first reaction is definitely "fast." At present, the peak speed of 4G network is about 110Mbps. In terms of speed, the network speed of 5G will be more than 100 times that of 4G network. Therefore, the download speed of 5G network can reach 1G to 10G per second.
In addition to high speed, mobile 5G also has the characteristics of low latency and large connections. According to reports, the end-to-end delay of the mobile 5G network is about 5 times faster than that of the 4G network. Its reliability is equivalent to an optical fiber connection, which can ensure that sudden interruptions will not occur, making the network more secure. At the same time, through the application of a series of new wireless technologies, the spectrum efficiency of mobile 5G is 3 to 5 times that of 4G, which means that more data can be transmitted on limited spectrum resources to support more user access. What needs to be pointed out in particular is that the 5G network is more energy efficient than 4G, and the energy consumption per bit is significantly reduced, making it more environmentally friendly.
The technical advantages of 5G network's high speed, low latency and large connection will realize the connection between people and the world anytime and anywhere, and drive the whole society to truly integrate into intelligent life.
What can 5G do?
Based on its advantages in user scale, network capabilities, platform construction, and resource coordination, China Mobile seizes the new opportunity of the Internet of Everything and fully implements the "big connection" strategy. Facing the new trend of 5G development, actively explore the deep integration of 5G and the industry, and deeply analyze the 8 vertical industries that 5G empowers V2X smart transportation, telemedicine, smart grid, smart campus, smart law enforcement, smart manufacturing, smart agriculture, and smart tourism Application, explore the application scenarios, solutions and development trends of various industries in the 5G era.
The application of 5G in various scenarios is highly targeted. For the automotive industry, support for autonomous driving and Internet of Vehicles is proposed; for the medical industry, the concept of telemedicine and portable medical treatment is given; for the game industry, AR/VR is given For the government, it puts forward more ambitious support for smart cities; for agriculture, there is smart agriculture; for traditional furniture and home appliance industries, it puts forward higher support for the Internet of Things; for industry, 5G can pass ultra-low Time delay and ultra-reliable network support the revolution of Industry 4.0.
In our city, 5G applications are also being gradually implemented. It is reported that China Mobile Henan Company and Coking Coal Group plan to land the province's first unmanned mine project based on "5G+"-Qianye Cement 5G unmanned mine project, which mainly realizes unmanned two-way driving transportation and intelligent dispatching system; and Zhongyuan Neipei Group Co., Ltd. has reached cooperation in the field of 5G+ industrial manufacturing, and plans to be the first to achieve the first application landing in the field of domestic 5G+ industrial manufacturing; exchange and cooperation with Duo Fluoride Chemical Co., Ltd. to create a smart park.
5G unmanned mines, smart factories and smart park projects are just a few examples of 5G applications. In fact, 5G builds the core basic capabilities of the Internet of Everything, which not only brings a better mobile communication experience, but also shoulders the historical mission of empowering vertical industries. "5G enables equipment to be perceived and controlled in real time, helping companies realize'machine substitution'; 5G helps on-site personnel to improve their skills through big videos and realizes'machine strongman'; 5G can help promote robot cloudification and accelerate manufacturing Reform and help the high-quality development of enterprises." Said insiders.
If 1G realizes the connection between people, 5G will realize the connection between all things. The communication between people will be more efficient, and the information transmission in the fields of medical care, culture, technology and other fields will become instantaneous. Imagine that when 5G is applied to all walks of life, the place where we live may become a smart city. 4G changes lives and 5G changes society. We expect these imaginations to become reality in the near future.
Is the 5g network available now? Take a look at these and make a final conclusion!
Since the launch of 5g, the topic of 5g has never stopped. According to netizens, what people are more concerned about is how about 5g mobile phones or packages and can they be used? Let's talk about this problem below, but the results can be given first, that is: it is not recommended to use 5g now.
Many people may not know that there are now more than 100 million 5g devices, and 5g networks will be available at the end of last year. There are not a few people who have used 5g, but many users' feedback on 5g is that "5g network coverage is not good."
I have long heard that 5g base stations are under construction. Why hasn’t there been no progress so far? According to relevant data, a 4G base station can cover 1 km, and a 5G base station can only cover 300 meters. According to calculations, if the original 4g area is to be covered, the number of base stations required for 5g will be 4-8 times that of 4g. Not only that, the capital required to invest in 5g construction is far more than 4g, because in addition to the cost of building a base station, it also includes the power consumption and maintenance of the base station. Such a large cost itself is difficult to digest.
This will inevitably have an impact on our use of 5g. The high density of 5g base stations will inevitably lead to a slower construction speed. So when will 5g be fully covered? Before full coverage, the use of 5g may face problems such as poor signal or even unavailability in some areas.
Because the input cost of 5g is extremely high and it is not easy to digest, it is urgent to create income with 5g. Therefore, while introducing the 5g package to guide users to upgrade, while removing the 4g economic package, users are allowed to use 5g in disguise. Comparing the prices of the 4g package and the 5g package, we really have to think about whether 5g is really needed now? Because upgrading the 5g package means that the original 4g package may not come back.
