Shang Bing pointed out that China Mobile has developed to the present, the all-optical transmission network has reached 14.03 million kilometers, and the total number of base stations is 3.4 million, of which 4G base stations exceed 2 million. At present, the number of mobile users has exceeded 920 million, the number of 4G users has exceeded 700 million, and the number of Internet of Things connections has exceeded 500 million.
In addition, China Mobile continued to push the network to speed up and reduce fees. “In the past three years, the unit price of mobile Internet traffic has dropped by 86%, which has made the people get benefits,” said Shang Bing.
Four thoughts: the old operation management model is difficult to use
"4G is in the ascendant, 5G has come to the surface", in the face of the 5G era, Shang Bing proposed four points of thinking:
1. Calling for a higher level of network infrastructure: On the one hand, 5G will further break the limitations and bring broad development space in the fields of transportation; on the other hand, 5G will deepen industrial integration and promote the intelligent development of all walks of life.
2. Industry transformation is developing a new blueprint: According to relevant research, the number of terminal connections will reach 50 billion in 2020 and trillions in 2040. The population interaction will grow exponentially, and the information and communication industry is drawing a new blueprint.
3. Telecom enterprises need to accelerate the pace of transformation: traditional telecom services have encountered growth bottlenecks. In the 5G era, scenario drivers are very obvious, and network deployment will be transformed into intelligent and networked. It is difficult to follow the operational management model that was familiar before, and it is necessary to improve the level of refined operation. Telecommunications companies must rely on 4G advantages to further open source and reduce expenditures in order to seize the opportunities in 5G development.
4. Open cooperation and mutual benefit. Open cooperation is the "two magic weapon" for the future development of the industry. The industry has transformed from a single product competition to an industrial competition. Enterprises, regardless of their size, are in urgent need of interoperability and establish core advantages in open cooperation.
Preparation of 10 billion yuan 5G joint venture industry fund
Faced with the trend of 5G development and industrial transformation, Shang Bing proposed four key points:
1. With the goal of 5G pre-commercial in 2019 and commercial scale in 2020, the 5G experimental network will be fully launched. After the official release of the 5G spectrum solution, the network test in the 2.6 GHz and 4.9 GHz bands will be actively promoted to promote the maturity of the industry chain.
2. In the first half of next year, push China Mobile's own brand 5G terminal; incubate 5G applications that can be landed.
3. Taking 5G as an opportunity to research and explore the 5G business model and actively explore the application of AI technology in services.
4. Promote open cooperation, clarify cooperation standards, and prepare 10 billion yuan 5G joint venture industry fund to promote industrial development.
