According to the latest data published by the Ministry of industry and information technology of the PRC, at the end of March this year, China had 198 thousand base stations 5G, and the number of users of a communication network of the fifth generation exceeded 50 million. In addition, more than 20 million terminals already successfully connected to the 5G network. It is obvious that the development of this latest technology of mobile communication has reached a certain intermediate results.

Along with the accelerating construction of the network the terminals themselves also entering a period of rapid development. According on April 22, China has received approval for exit and access to the networks of the fifth generation 96 models of smartphones with support for 5G, which is significantly higher than the result in ‘ 39 models at the end of December last year. At the same time, the market value of the phones supporting the new technology is rapidly declining and currently has less than 2,000 yuan.

moreover, to actively run a variety of applications. For example, more and more applications are getting such consumer applications areas as ultra-high definition video, cloud gaming services, technologies, virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR). Even more deepen demonstration trials in key areas such as the Internet of things for cars, the industrial Internet and medicine.

February 21, Chinese academician Zhong Nanshan via cloud-based video system China Mobile held a remote consultation for critically ill patients with coronavirus infection in the urban district of Yuxi of Yunnan province. The telemedicine system allows 5G located thousands of kilometers to the experts and fighting in the center of the epidemic clinicians with high-resolution video to provide medical assistance. Such multi-stakeholder consultation and multi-disciplinary consultations make medical diagnosis more professional and highly effective.

on 8 April three of the leading telecommunications operator in China (China Telecom, China Mobile and China Unicom) jointly published “a White paper on 5G technology” and announced the launch of the service short message with it. New technology will allow to implement complex interaction of different scripts without having to install additional mobile applications. This brand-new way of human interaction and electronics will open infinite possibilities for development in the future. For example, the user can book a ticket on the train, putting on the website exact departure time and flight number, then the ticket will appear in the form of cards and can be redeemed in a single click. Similarly, it will be possible to book a taxi, booking rooms in hotels and tables at restaurants, when paying, the user will no longer have of this crossing��it in a special application for payment, because the technology of communications 5G automatically supports this feature.

the Creation of a 5G network affects not only the significant investment in construction, including engineering works, construction of base stations and electricity supply, but also stimulate the transformation and upgrading of various industries, investment in many of these areas as reconstruction of plants, construction work, updating the systems and technical training. Deputy Director of the Academy of information and communication technologies of China Wang Jiting noted that by 2025 the total investment in the formation of the 5G network is estimated at 1.2 trillion yuan, and the amount of all investments in the sector could reach 3.5 trillion yuan.

According to published in 2017, the Academy of information and communication technologies China White paper “the Impact of 5G technologies on the economy and society” in 2020, investments of Telecom operators in 5G networking equipment will exceed 220 billion yuan, and expenditure of various sectors of the equipment 5G will exceed 54 billion yuan. By 2030, commercialization of 5G technology in China can generate direct gross product of the industry in the amount of 6.3 trillion yuan, the added value – of $ 2.9 trillion yuan. In addition, with this technology, it will create 8 million new jobs.

according to Vice Chairman of the Chinese Association of information Economics, Professor of Beijing University of posts and telecommunications Lu Tencza present day technologies are the most important trend of development and the most significant of them is the 5G technology, which is widely implemented and used currently. He added that 5G technology rekonstruiruet environment of the digital economy and even to change social development in the next 10 years.
