The United States has a world-wide technological level, but its telecom industry is relatively weak. Especially after China joined the war, the situation was even worsened. In the late 3G era, the United States pushed WiMAX to the international telecom standard in order to get rid of the competition in the telecommunications industry. What the world did not realize is that in the joint resistance of Central Europe, the drama ended three years after the curtain call, Motorola's decline, Huawei intends to acquire its mobile division, but was obstructed by the United States government, eventually the department was Lenovo acquired. The rapid development of China's telecom industry, Huawei and ZTE occupy nearly half of the global telecom equipment share, the domestic telecommunications market is far ahead of the first place in the international competition dominant, becoming the coveted one of the three pugils, and The United States, on the contrary, is the thinnest leg.
In the face of 5G, China is even more prepared. In 2013, Ministry of Science and Technology, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and Development and Reform Commission jointly established the IMT2020 (5G) Propulsion Team and guided the telecom enterprises such as Huawei, ZTE and Datang in the world's largest 5G test ground in Beijing Huairou Two rounds of testing were conducted. Ericsson joined in the first round of testing. Shortly after the second round of tests ended, the Chinese government praised Intel and now the third round of testing has begun. Why foreign telecom giants have joined the Chinese organization's 5G test? This is because the telecom industry has the characteristic of "standard exclusion." Following the standard, you can make a lot of money down the river. You can only go back to the bottom with the wrong standard. "The 5G standard of China" is not boasting, but rather International telecommunications industry consensus.
If this situation continues to develop, China's leading 5G situation will appear on schedule, which of course is firmly opposed by the United States. What should I do? Nationalization or solution, the government led the integration of the nation's telecom-related enterprises, the overall planning, division of labor to work together to form a concerted effort, it is indeed possible to regain control over the dominance of the international telecommunications industry.
But time waits for no man. The International Telecommunication Union plans to enter the era of 5G by 2020. Now with less than two years left, China is going to start 5G pre-commercialization. Until now, the United States has only nationalized the basic telecommunications. It is scared that "it is too late for the sedan chair to come to an end."
The construction of the basic telecommunications network is a major project that leads the whole body. Nationalization is a major subversion of the existing system. Resistance is very large in the follow-up reaction. Paw, the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission appointed by Trump, firmly opposed. Every time the military expenditures increase, the U.S. Congress will throw out the "China threat theory." The same is true of cybersecurity threats, which are all excuses for perennial use rather than ends.
The dominance of the international telecommunications industry is a barometer of comprehensive national strength and one of the foundations for the country's sustained rapid development. It is also the focus of competition among major powers. Some U.S. officials have realized the crisis of dominance. In order to win the advantage and even change the ownership system, the international competition of 5G will be more and more fierce.
