Kneecapped by COVID-19, global economy is predicted to shrink as countless businesses are devastated amid this unprecedented pandemic. To cope with the forthcoming economic recession, China puts forward “New Infrastructure” development across the country which includes 5G networks, data centers, cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, Internet of things (IoT), industrial Internet and Internet communication network infrastructure. 5G technology is the main focus of a digitalized, networked and intelligent economy and society.
According to International Telecommunication Union (ITU), 5G technologies can efficiently connect people, things, data and even cities in smart networked communication environments. A vast amount of data can be transported in a much faster and more reliable way, even with a huge number of devices, via the applications of 5G. Meanwhile, high volumes of data can be processed with very low latency communication. In other words, people can enjoy smooth mobile payment and faster download time even in large crowds with the assistance of better signal and higher-speed Internet access enabled by 5G.
Unlocking Digital Opportunities with 5G Industrial Applications
5G technologies are emerging to deliver higher quality experience of traditional voice and data services, as well as completely new and innovative services in diverse industries. Its capabilities of low latency, reliable, high volume of traffic is expected to quicken the pace of innovation and digitalization of various industries, including education, manufacturing, medical, and retail. The industrial productivity and efficiency will be substantially increased in the era of 5G.
For education sector, 5G can actualize high-resolution live streaming teaching. Also, it can fulfil smooth online teaching and learning with more stable connectivity and lower latency communication, hence facilitating effective online teaching, as well as improving the learning experience of students.
Apart from the education sector, manufacturing is another area that can also reap the benefits of 5G applications. 5G improves the quality and speed of Augmented Reality (AR) and provides users immersive experience with low latency. With the help of 5G-enabled AR technology, controllers can help workers complete tasks remotely and correctly. Therefore, manufacturers can simplify workers’ training and save costs, obtaining unprecedentedly higher productivity and efficiency from 5G applications.
Furthermore, we can put a spotlight on the medical industry. The transmission of medical videos which consists of large amount of mobile Internet data can be boosted with 5G networks, attaining simultaneous medical consulting in an ultra-reliable and faster way. Patients can now seek medical consultations from doctors remotely from home with no pain.
Last but not least, 5G can integrate with face recognition and AI to identify the buying behaviour of retail customers, hence optimizing the business strategies of retailers. It can definitely optimize customers’ shopping experience and boost retailers’ sales revenues with the unlimited opportunities brought by 5G applications in retail.
