On August 17, in order to build a global 5g smart demonstration city, accelerate the development of 5g and AI industry and promote industry digitization, the conference of “lighting Shenzhen and 5g smart city” co sponsored by Shenzhen municipal government, sponsored by Shenzhen Municipal Bureau of industry and information technology, organized by 5g Industrial Association of Shenzhen and co sponsored by Huawei Technology Co., Ltd. opened at Shangri La Hotel, Futian, Shenzhen. The purpose of the conference is to release the results of 5g full coverage network construction in Shenzhen, 5g+ cloud + AI full scene smart industry application cases, and to license 5g government application demonstration project and 5g industry application demonstration project that Shenzhen has built. At the meeting, Wang Zhiqin, vice president of the Institute of information and communication of China, said that at present, Shenzhen has undertaken the dual missions of “leading demonstration zone of socialism with Chinese characteristics” and “Guangdong, Hong Kong, Macao and Dawan district”. Under the background of “double zone” empowerment, Shenzhen, as a global electronic information industry town, gathered a large number of leading enterprises, including 5g standard setting, technology research and development, network construction Integration application, industrial ecology and other aspects are in the forefront of the world. 5g will lead the new infrastructure construction, and will enable the future of the two zones, and make the urban construction more intelligent. As the first of new infrastructure, 5g is the key digital infrastructure to promote the transformation of digital, network and intelligent, and also the core driving force for the development of animal networking, artificial intelligence and big data. According to the calculation, it is estimated that 5g can pull 1.7 trillion yuan of network investment of telecom operators and 0.47 trillion yuan in vertical industry network and equipment investment in 2020-2025; 5g commercial will drive 1.8 trillion yuan of mobile data flow consumption, 2 trillion yuan of information service consumption and 4.5 trillion yuan of terminal consumption; 5g will directly create more than 3 million jobs and increase more new employment opportunities. According to IHS Markit data, the authoritative Global Market Research Institute, it is estimated that the real GDP of the world will increase by 2.5% per year between 2020 and 2025, of which 5g will contribute nearly 0.2% growth, and 5g will become one of the important sources of global economic expansion; it is expected that by 2035, the potential economic output of multiple industries driven by 5g will reach 13.2 trillion US dollars, accounting for 5% of the total global output in 2035. Mr. Wang said that China is in a critical period of transforming its development mode, optimizing economic structure and transforming growth momentum, and structural, institutional and cyclical issues are intertwined. As an important direction of new round of infrastructure investment, new infrastructure can provide new impetus for China’s innovation and high-quality development while stabilizing investment, steady growth, promoting consumption upgrading, hedging epidemic situation and economic downward pressure, and creating conditions for seizing the high-level global scientific and technological innovation system. As of the first half of 2020, 90 operators in 44 countries and regions have announced to start providing 5g services (including fixed wireless and mobile services), according to the data. According to GSMA, the total number of 5g users in the world has reached 56.65 million by the first half of 2020, of which, China has over 40million users. By the end of June, China has opened more than 41000 5g base stations in total, and the growth rate of new base stations in 4, 5 and 6 has reached more than 25% in three consecutive months, with a significant increase in speed. In 2020, it is planned to invest 180billion new 500000 base stations, covering cities above the national level. The centralized acquisition of 5g SA base station of operator has been completed, and SA network will be commercially available in 2020. According to the monitoring of China Academy of information and communication, as of may2020, there are 484 5g applications in the actual scene in China. Among the three application directions, the proportion of intelligent life is 57.4%. In specific to 5g integrated application industry, the application in intelligent medical, news media, smart city, vehicle network and industrial Internet accounts for more than 8% of 5g applications, and has become the 5g pioneer application field. In february2019, the outline of development planning for Dawan District of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao was issued and Shenzhen established the position of “core engine”. Shenzhen, as one of the first 5g pilot cities in China, actively seize 5g development opportunities, and promote 5g construction with the strength of the city through policy “combination boxing”, and form 5g development advantages. In terms of network construction, 45000 5g base stations have been built, and the 5g independent network coverage of telecommunication, mobile and Unicom has been realized. 5g commercial process has achieved remarkable results, and among all cities in China, 5g users in Shenzhen ranked first. In terms of application demonstration, several application demonstration scenarios have been set up, such as 5g+ intelligent police, 5g+ intelligent medical treatment, 5g+ smart Park and so on. In ten government fields, such as transportation, police, urban management, water affairs, medical treatment, education and tourism, a batch of 5g application demonstration projects have been determined in ten vertical industries, such as Ultra HD video, intelligent Internet vehicle, networked UAV, industrial Internet, etc. In terms of industrial development, Shenzhen has established a relatively complete 5g industrial chain, which mainly includes terminal, base station system, network architecture, application scenarios and other links, relying on Huawei and ZTE. As for the construction speed of 5g in Shenzhen, Wang Zhiqin said 5g is the starting point of the era of “all things are connected”. To release 5g’s great potential and enable the construction of double zones, it is necessary for Shenzhen government, leading enterprises of industry, universities, scientific research institutes, industry associations and industrial alliances to work together to promote and continue innovation. In terms of promotion mechanism, 5g application cross department cooperation mechanism should be constructed to break down industry barriers, build cooperation innovation platform to form comprehensive solutions and establish 5g integrated application ecosystem. In terms of application and promotion, the focus is on cultivating and expanding 5g integrated industrial ecology, accelerating the integration of new generation information technology into thousands of lines and driving 100 industries. As the base of the digital era, 5g is the key tool to seize the commanding point of science and technology competition and seek for future innovation and development. Shenzhen has built a world-class 5g network, and the development of 5g industry has the advantages of first-class. “Double zone” is favorable and overlapped and “double zone” driven, and Shenzhen ushers in unprecedented development opportunities and is expected in the future. It is not only the change of life but also the social change of 5g. At the time of the 40th anniversary of the establishment of Shenzhen Special Economic Zone, Shenzhen city is focusing on the new opportunities for the development of 5g era. Through strong policy support, perfect industrial chain ecology, solid connection + computing infrastructure, and the leading application of all industries, Shenzhen will create a new business card of “5g smart city” of all things connected. Facing the new round of “new infrastructure”, with the broad prospect of all things connected and intelligent, Shenzhen has launched its sail again with practical cooperation of all parties in industrial ecology.
