With the opening of the 5G door, "speed" is becoming the focus of competition for various technology companies, in the fight for "speed" the right to speak on the issue, the European and American giants frequently, Chinese manufacturers are not to be outdone.
According to the Ministry of Industry and disclosure, China 5G third stage test will be launched by the end of 2017, 2018 related operators will be pre-commercial. Institutional data show that domestic operators in the 2018 ~ 2025 period, 5G Acer station investment scale total of about 1.13 trillion yuan, compared to 4G investment growth of more than 60%, small base station's total investment is expected to exceed 200 billion yuan.
Huawei, an inexplicable insider told the first financial reporter, with the gigabit of LTE into people's lives, how to really break the network capacity constraints, the release of depressed consumer demand, explore new profit growth point, become Communications industry manufacturers need to solve and work in the direction.
Gigabit network is coming soon
12 years ago, the mobile network rate of 1.8Mbps, we can use mobile phones to open simple web pages, but the expansion is very limited. 7 years ago, the maximum speed of mobile networks to 100Mbps, see plans become possible, TalkBox, WeChat and other applications began to appear. Today, 4G network is evolving, 1 second to open the picture and video has long been, can also be used to navigate and live.
With the 5G standard is about to land, gigabit network is also approaching.
A half-hour micro-film "Lifeline", a resolution of 720P, the size of about 140MB, with Gigabit LTE network less than 15 seconds to download. In accordance with this speed, the end of a full day of the US drama also a few minutes of things. If you display 120 frames of 360-degree panorama VR video per second with 4K resolution, the data throughput is 103Mbps and the gigabit LTE averaging (114 Mbps), enabling real-time video streaming.
Qualcomm believes that Gigabit LTE marks the next stage of 4G evolution, it can bring richer content, new connection experience, App application and use mode. At the same time, as with the early 5G network coexistence and mutual high-speed coverage network, Gigabit LTE will be 5G mobile experience is an important pillar. By connecting mobile terminals that support gigabit LTE networks, the user's connectivity experience will be significantly enhanced, especially in terms of virtual reality (VR) content streaming, cloud storage, and high-fidelity video or music caching.
17, Qualcomm announced in Hong Kong, and Inseego subsidiary Novatel Wireless, launched based on the 5G new air (5G NR) Release 15 specification 5G new air gap millimeter wave technology and OTA field test.
Qualcomm spokesman told reporters that the current 3GPP is developing this global 5G standard, the tripartite plan to jointly promote the mobile industry ecosystem to achieve 5G new air gap millimeter-wave technology more quickly large-scale verification and commercial, to support the 2020 to achieve a comprehensive Commercial network deployment.
While China's attention to the gigabit network level is also unprecedented high. At present, according to the deployment of the Ministry of Industry, the three major operators and related communications companies have already actively carried out 5G research and deployment.
In promoting the 5G standard contest, the most concerned about the Sino-US enterprises is Qualcomm and Huawei.
Not long ago at the 3GPP RAN1 90 conference in Prague, Czech Republic, the RAN1 presidential election was held. After two rounds of secret ballot, the final US Qualcomm's Wanshi Chen (Chen Wenshi) was elected as the new RAN1 chairman.
At that time for the above positions in addition to Wanshi Chen, there are Brian Classon from Huawei. Interestingly, Wanshi Chen is a Chinese, and Huawei's Brian Classon is a foreigner.
So in the communication circle popular with such a sentence, "the 3GPP RAN1 chairman of the election, the candidates are foreign Chinese companies, Chinese companies, foreigners, which means that in the 5G technology research and standards development, the Chinese people Chinese companies have become first - rate contributors.
It is noteworthy that, on November 17 last year, at the 3GPP RAN187 meeting 5G short code program discussion, Huawei's Polar Code (polarized code) program to become 5G control channel eMBB scene coding final program, but also Chinese companies in the 5G Standard development stage of a victory.
From the catcher to the leader, 5G to China in the field of mobile communications catch up with the historical opportunity.
Mobile communication since the birth of the 20th century, 80 years, about every decade will be a generation of technological innovation - from 1G to 4G, experienced from analog to digital, voice to data evolution, the network rate growth.
For China, has been the role of the followers, 3G than overseas business later eight years or so, 4G three years or so. With the 2020 5G is coming as scheduled, mobile communication network change the curtain open, the Chinese protagonist era or will come.
Wang Xiaoyun, vice chairman of China's 5G Promotion Group and general manager of China Mobile Technology, said at a technology summit that China has built the world's largest 5G trial network in Huairou, including six equipment manufacturers (Huawei, ZTE, Datang, Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung), a total of 30 field (5G) base stations. The domestic equipment manufacturers to test the 5G peak rate of 10 to 20G, in the high frequency can reach 21G, air port delay is less than 1 millisecond, per square kilometer connection can reach 1.5 million.
In accordance with the current pace of China's 5G technology to promote the pace of China's technology research and development will be synchronized with the development of international 5G standards, the first half of 2019 to complete the 5G technology research and development stage, into the product development pilot phase. The issuance of licenses will be in the basic stage of product development and testing, 5G investment network and business will be around the beginning of 2020, 2020 for the Chinese manufacturers will be 5G first year, before that moment can not relax.
