The chaotic image of the domestic 2G/3G/4G network standard coexisting has not been clarified, and the 5G technology that people are expecting has made breakthroughs, and commercial trials are coming soon. South Korea and the United States are expected to conduct 5G commercialization next year, and China is expected to conduct 5G commercial trials in 2020. It can be said that the 5G era is close at hand.
The explosive growth of traffic during the 4G period is the beginning of the “unlimited” era of traffic, and 5G will become an upgrade and breakthrough in the “unlimited” era, bringing more changes to the entire communication industry chain and the daily communication service experience of users.
Communication industry chain upgrade and transformation
In the 5G era, the entire communication industry chain is facing a huge transformation and upgrading, whether it is terminal manufacturers, operators or application platform vendors, etc. must be re-planned and laid out, because all enterprises in the world are in the same starting line in the 5G era.
First of all, for the terminal manufacturers, the arrival of 5G will set off a vigorous exchange of enthusiasm, which brings unlimited opportunities. The current 5G technology is not yet fully mature. The 5G terminal is still in the R&D and testing phase, coupled with the huge market demand of the terminal in the 5G period, which is undoubtedly an opportunity for the terminal manufacturer to change history.
Second, operators face enormous challenges during the 5G era. On the one hand, the laying of the 5G basic network and the cost of building the base station are much higher than those of the 4G period. Therefore, the operator’s basic network input cost will be greatly improved, which is undoubtedly a big problem for the communication operators that are slowing down. On the other hand, 5G will spawn more levels of service content, such as high-definition video calls, VR, etc. Operator networks and services need to be continuously upgraded and optimized to meet the needs of users. The arrival of 5G is full of challenges for operators.
Finally, for Internet companies and application platform providers, 5G will bring them better network equipment, a smoother user experience, and more personalized services, etc., opportunities are everywhere. 5G network speed is hundreds of times higher than the 4G network, which will undoubtedly contribute to the rapid development of the Internet. Such a fast transmission speed greatly improves the convenience of users using the network, thus driving the Internet platform’s traffic and website traffic. increase.
Continuous optimization of user content service experience
The arrival of 5G will also make tremendous changes in user content services and experiences, such as high-definition video, VR games, Internet of Things and other industries will also benefit, accelerate the pace of development.
First of all, the HD video industry is ushered in the spring, and the user’s visual experience will be greatly enhanced. A few days ago, China Mobile completed the 8K HD video on demand demonstration based on the 5G network. Compared with 4K video, 8K ultra HD video not only can improve the quality of the picture but also achieve a high degree of restoration to the real scene; thanks to the high definition of 5G With the development of video, the user’s video viewing experience will continue to increase.
Second, the VR industry will also grow and grow with the arrival of 5G. VR technology has gradually emerged and entered the eyes of consumers in the 4G era, but it has not been popularized and popularized. Most of them are used for user novelty experience. This is because 4G networks are still not enough to carry large-scale VR applications. The data throughput of the 5G network is 10 times higher than that of 4G, the communication capacity is increased by 100 times, and the delay is one-tenth of the previous one. Therefore, the obstacles of VR in transmission will be opened, which is plagued by VR technology in mobile applications. The problem will be solved.
Finally, 5G will give birth to the era of the Internet of Everything, creating a more convenient, intelligent and efficient production and life scene. With the arrival of 5G high-speed network, the development space of the Internet of Things will be further enlarged. It is estimated that there will be 28 billion mobile devices connected by 2021, of which 16 billion IoT devices will be installed. In the field of Internet of Things, the service target for the next ten years will be extended to users in various industries. The number of M2M terminals will increase dramatically, and applications will be ubiquitous. It can be said that 5G is designed for the Internet of Everything.
In addition to improving the intelligence and efficiency of industrial production, transportation, education, medical care, security, tourism and other aspects that are closely related to us will also become more intelligent due to the interconnection of all things, car networking, autonomous driving, remote surgery, intelligence Home will become more and more popular due to 5G, further improving and improving the quality of our lives.
