China's 5G network investment is growing rapidly(electronics manufacturing expo news)

23 Jul 2019

According to the South China Morning Post, as China's mobile technology is rapidly moving from the current 4G era to the 5G electronics manufacturing expo era, China's 5G network investment is expected to surpass North America between 2019 and 2023.

According to a research report released last week by market research firm Dell’Oro Group, China's total investment in next-generation 5G networks between 2019 and 2023 will be “more than twice that of North America”. However, the research organization did not provide specific data. Headquartered in the United States, Dell’Oro Group was established in 1995 and is a well-known independent market research company in the telecommunications industry.

At present, the world is competing to launch ultra-high-speed next-generation telecommunications networks. In this global electronics manufacturing expo competition, China's investment in 5G network construction indicates that China is trying to stay ahead. The deployment of 5G networks will undoubtedly provide power for industrial Internet, autonomous driving and smart city construction.

The earliest 5G mobile business services have been launched in Korea, the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Spain. Despite this, the size of the Chinese market may dwarf them, which will make any pre-emptive advantage of these economies in the construction of 5G mobile networks no longer exist.

As for the specific figures on China's investment in 5G construction, a spokeswoman for Dell’Oro Group declined to provide estimates. But the electronics manufacturing expo spokeswoman said that between 2019 and 2023, China's total spending on 4G and 5G will exceed $40 billion.

According to a study released by the China Information and Communication Research Institute under the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in March, the total capital expenditure on 5G in China is expected to be between 900 billion yuan and 1.5 trillion yuan (about 130.8 billion yuan) from 2020 to 2025. US$ to $218 billion).

Infrastructure spending will be dominated by China's three major network operators China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom. In addition to these three electronics manufacturing expo telecom operators, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology also issued a 5G commercial license to China Radio and Television last month.

According to the 2019 China Internet Report released by the South China Morning Post, the potential of 5G has already emerged in China through some highly anticipated projects. At the Shanghai 2019 Auto Show held in April this year, China Mobile demonstrated the support of 5G networks for autonomous vehicle technology by providing trials of 5G networks. It allowed a driver at the Shanghai Auto Show to control a car that was far away from Beijing, 1,000 kilometers away.

Stefan Pongratz, senior director of the Dell'Oro Group, said in a research report, "Because global data traffic is expected to grow three to four times within expectations, more spectrum is used and more efficiently The electronics manufacturing expo business case that will take advantage of it will appear, and no one will doubt it now.” Pang Grace also said that the deployment of 5G networks is wider than originally expected, and deployment is faster.

According to data released by research institute GSMA Intelligence in April, it is estimated that global spending on 5G mobile networks will reach $1.3 trillion between 2019 and 2025.

The 2019 China Internet Report released by the South China Morning electronics manufacturing expo Post said that by the end of 2025, China will have 460 million 5G connections, accounting for 28% of the country's total mobile connectivity.
