On May 26, the 2019 Expo opened in Guiyang. The China Tower shows the road to development since its inception. According to the data given by China Railway Tower, over the past four years, its accumulated investment has reached 160 billion yuan, and more than 2.2 million tower base station construction projects have been completed. The number of three operators' stations has doubled since the establishment of China Tower, promoting China. Quickly build the world's largest 4G network.
In 2014, the three major operators invested 10 billion in registration “China Tower” & rdquo;. In terms of shareholder shareholding, mobile accounted for 38%, China Unicom accounted for 28.1%, telecommunications accounted for 27.9%, and China's new country accounted for 6%. Since 2014, the three major operators have stopped building their own base stations and transferred them to China Tower Corporation. At present, the total number of China Tower sites is 1.96 million.
“It can be shared without new construction, and can be built together and not built alone.” This is the business model that has been adhered to since the establishment of the China Tower. Up to now, the sharing level of new iron towers has rapidly increased from 14% to 75%, saving 111.8 billion yuan, saving 3,000 football fields and saving 74 bird nests. In Guizhou, through the joint construction and sharing of China Railway Tower Guizhou Branch for more than four years, it is equivalent to reducing the number of iron tower construction by 41,600 and reducing the land occupation by 3,150 mu.
In addition, in major projects such as high-speed rail and subway, China Railway Tower has built a wireless broadband network covering a total of 18,000 kilometers of high-speed rail, with a total mileage of 2,887 kilometers. The total coverage of the contractor is over 1.6 billion square meters. Over the past four years, 70% of the new towers of China's iron towers have been distributed in rural areas and townships. The growth rate of sites in the 12 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities in the west has been higher than the national average for a long time, which has greatly promoted the balanced development of the eastern and western networks.
At the moment, 5G is getting closer. Compared with 4G, the 5G frequency is high and the base station is more dense. The network planning, base station location selection, facility construction, and power security are all higher requirements, and the investment scale is also huge. In the context of the accelerated development of 5G, the China Tower has demonstrated a fast and cost-effective construction model. By playing a co-ordinating role, it has tapped the sharing potential to make 5G construction cheaper, more efficient and better.
It is understood that in the past few years, the China Railway Tower has been actively promoting the “social tower” and “communication tower”, which has been transformed into a wide range of cooperation with various fields, which has led to the open sharing of public and social resources. At present, China's iron tower has reserved a tens of millions of social tower resource site bases, laying a foundation for the 5G scale construction. Among them, China Tower has more than 300,000 reserves in Guizhou, and it is estimated that more than 80% of 5G ground micro stations should use social resources such as streetlights and monitors to achieve resource conservation and environmental friendliness.
At present, China Tower has set up special networks, videos, comprehensive services and other products by utilizing the advantages of towers, computer rooms and maintenance services. It has served 4,000 customers in more than 16 industries including environmental protection, meteorology, earthquake and energy.
In addition to the base station basic business, China Tower also actively explored energy business, such as the application of new energy vehicle decommissioned power battery. It is reported that since 2015, China Tower has actively carried out research on the use of power battery ladders. Through many experiments, it has fully verified the technical and economic feasibility of using batteries in the field of communication base stations. Since 2018, China Tower has started to promote the use of power battery ladders in 31 provinces across the country. Up to now, China Tower has used 600Mwh of ladder batteries, installed 200,000 sets of batteries at 60,000 base stations, and reduced carbon emissions by more than 60,000 tons. It is the main channel for the use of ladder batteries in China.
It is understood that the backup power business can be applied to many industries and fields such as finance, medical care, traffic lights, and commerce. Compared with the traditional backup mode, the power supply service based on the power lithium battery has the advantages of safety, real-time monitoring, mute, low cost, environmental protection, and small footprint. At present, China Tower has reached cooperation with a large number of customers such as the Postal Savings Bank, the Post Office, the Agricultural Bank, and the Traffic Police Department.
The power generation business is mainly realized by assembling the power battery into a silent power generation vehicle and a portable lithium battery power generation package. Compared with the conventional oil machine, the power consumption is large and the noise pollution is heavy. The power generation service based on the power lithium battery has mute, flexible output, and deployment. Rapid, pollution-free and other advantages. All power batteries are connected to the National Unified Operation and Maintenance Monitoring Platform of China Tower, which can be monitored and intelligently dispatched through PC and mobile APP. At present, the silent power generation service has been applied in many scenarios such as banks, residential areas, and shops.
At this number of times, the China Tower also launched the “Fei Ge Exchange” business. It is understood that the low-speed electric vehicles used by couriers and take-away riders have insufficient battery capacity. Due to the safety, more and more urban corridors or communities are not allowed to pull cables, which makes charging difficult. Based on the power lithium battery resources, the China Tower has built an IoT-based intelligent power change cabinet, which provides a low-speed electric vehicle with the same convenient power exchange service as the charging treasure. The user only needs to scan the two-dimensional code of the electric cabinet to quickly take out a charged lithium battery.
According to the staff of the China Tower Pavilion, after the take-away brother used the power-exchange business, the order volume increased by 20%. At present, China Railway Tower has cooperated with companies such as Meituan, SF, Post and other electric vehicles.
