Growth in 5G use accelerates industrial innovation

Wang shared this agricultural application of 5G at the 2021 World 5G Convention this week. The event, which opened in Beijing on Tuesday, saw over 1,500 industry experts and entrepreneurs from 20 countries and regions participating online and offline.


The ready-to-open Universal Beijing Resort has built many artificial hills, with the design, construction and maintenance all using 5G technology, said Yang Binhe with contractor China Construction Second Engineering Bureau.

Han Xia called for more efforts to promote the integrated development of cross-sector 5G application technologies, build mutually beneficial and cooperative industrial ecosystems and strive for the scale development of the industries.

We will strengthen communication and cooperation with other countries around the world on 5G technology, standards, industries and policies, and jointly create an international cooperation environment that draws on each others strengths, said Han.

In the Eshan She Ethnic township in Tonglu County, in east Chinas Zhejiang Province, schools of fish are rmed in green rice paddies. With the help of 5G technology, local rmers are kept well informed of the growth of both rice and fish.

Rogers said 5G will have a major impact on the global economy. According to global business information provider IHS Markit, 5G is projected to create over 13 trillion U.S. dollars of global economic output, along with more than 20 million jobs, in 2035.

According to Rogers, Qualcomm expects the global shipments of 5G smartphones to reach nearly 500 million units in 2021 and over 750 million units in 2022.

In addition to the internet and communication industries, traditional industries such as mining and construction have also embraced 5G technology and gained benefits.

As the technology matures and its real-life application becomes more popular, 5G is changing all walks of life in China, assisting the development of both the economy and the society.

Farmers use 5G sensors and high-definition cameras for real-time monitoring, with data analysis helping inform them when to feed and medicate, according to Wang Yin from the Hangzhou branch of China Mobile, which has taken part in the smart agricultural program.

There are over 10,000 cases of innovative 5G use in China, covering the fields of industry, health care, education and transportation, Han Xia, chief engineer of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, told a convention forum on Tuesday.


The integration of 5G, AI and cloud will provide strong impetus to innovation and economic growth, empower brand-new business models, services and sources of revenue, while accelerating the digital transformation of a wide range of industries, said Alex Rogers, President of Qualcomm Technology Licensing (QTL) and Global Afirs, Qualcomm Incorporated, during a video speech at the conference on Tuesday.

Essential to Chinas 5G application boom is the development of the worlds best 5G infrastructure. Chinas 5G base stations in operation make up over 70 percent of the global total, while the country has over 80 percent of the worlds 5G terminal connections, Han said.万博体育投注Growth in 5G use accelerates industrial innovation
