Ten typical application areas of 5G
On the one hand, 5G has greatly improved the personal user experience of high-bandwidth mobile Internet services. On the other hand, it has become an important driving force for the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries due to its compatibility with network characteristics such as large bandwidth, large connections, and low latency.
At present, 5G-related applications have begun to appear in some industries, including industry, agriculture, government affairs, medical and other fields. In November 2019, China Mobile Research Institute released the "5G Typical Application Case Collection". Now we will briefly sort out the 10 major areas.
1. Government Affairs and Public Utilities
At present, the application of 5G by government and public utilities is mainly in five sub-scenarios: smart government, smart security, smart city infrastructure, smart buildings, and smart environmental protection. Take smart security as an example. By taking advantage of the high transmission rate of 5G, the problem of slow reflection in existing video surveillance can be effectively improved. In addition, the multi-connection feature of 5G can also promote the further expansion of the surveillance range.
The application of 5G in industry is mainly reflected in three aspects: smart manufacturing, remote control, and smart industrial parks. Taking intelligent manufacturing as an example, it is based on end-to-end data flow, real-time communication and information interaction between massive sensors and artificial intelligence platforms, which has stringent requirements for communication networks, and 5G networks can be highly modular and flexible production The system provides diversified and high-quality communication guarantees.
The application of 5G in agriculture is mainly in the four aspects of smart farms, smart forest farms, smart animal husbandry and smart fishing grounds. For example, in the unmanned farm mode, the integrated information management system of the agricultural cloud platform, combined with advanced technologies such as 5G, image recognition, satellite remote sensing, and big data, can drive various unmanned agricultural machinery and equipment to achieve automated operations. At present, agricultural big data is changing from technological innovation to application innovation, and the characteristics of 5G in terms of bandwidth, delay, connection scale, etc. will also bring massive amounts of raw data and powerful mechanical equipment control capabilities to agriculture, thereby promoting wisdom The evolution of agriculture.
4. Cultural, Sports and Entertainment
The application of 5G in cultural, sports and entertainment is mainly embodied in the four sub-application areas of video production and broadcasting, smart cultural expo, smart cinema, and cloud gaming. Take smart theaters as an example. Under the influence of 5G technology, the clarity of movie screens, the wonder of movie images, and the sense of interaction in movie appreciation will be strengthened. Movies will become more “good-looking” and “fun”. With the advancement of 5G, the development direction of cinema chains will also focus on experiential cinemas. For example, the VR intelligent comprehensive experience pavilion represented by a high degree of realism and immersion may become a new ecology.
The medical application of 5G is mainly in three aspects: remote diagnosis, remote surgery and emergency rescue. For example, traditional remote consultation usually uses wired connection for video communication, which has high construction and maintenance costs and poor mobility. The high-speed characteristics of the 5G network can support 4K/8K remote high-definition consultations and high-speed transmission and sharing of medical image data. At the same time, experts can conduct consultations anytime and anywhere, improve diagnosis accuracy and guidance efficiency, and promote the development of high-quality medical resources. sink.
The application of 5G in transportation is mainly embodied in six aspects: Internet of Vehicles and autonomous driving, smart public transportation, smart railway, smart airport, smart port and smart logistics. Taking smart logistics as an example, the smart logistics park built on 5G technology will comprehensively use automation, driverless technology, and real-time monitoring technology to achieve efficient matching of people, vehicles, and goods, convenient transfer, and convenient management that can be controlled throughout.
The application of 5G in finance is mainly reflected in two aspects: smart outlets and virtual banks. Take the virtual bank as an example. Through target and environment identification, ultra-high-definition and XR playback, high-speed and accurate information collection and services, it can remotely identify users and provide XR-based transaction services, thereby improving the efficiency of bank operations.
The application of 5G in tourism is mainly in two aspects: smart scenic spots and smart hotels. Taking smart hotels as an example, users can directly use their mobile phones to access the 5G network, experience the high speed of 5G downloads and uploads, and experience the information query, destination guidance, robot delivery and other services provided by 5G smart robots, thereby improving Hotel service efficiency.
The application of 5G in education is mainly reflected in two aspects: smart teaching and smart campus. Taking smart teaching as an example, the "5G + holographic interactive classroom" technology will profoundly change the form of teaching, and at the same time help break time and geographical constraints, provide students with an interactive and immersive three-dimensional learning environment, promote education balance, and truly implement the Ministry of Education Advocating the teaching requirements of the whole time domain, the whole airspace, and the whole audience.
The application of 5G in electric power is mainly embodied in the four aspects of smart new energy power generation, smart power transmission and transformation, smart power distribution and smart power consumption. Taking smart power distribution as an example, 5G has a wide range of applications, covering the entire process from fault monitoring and positioning to precise load control. These applications have higher requirements for low latency, and the number of connections that need to be managed is also relatively large. The high-speed and large-number of connections of 5G can meet the needs of smart power distribution.
At present, the development of 5G applications is still in its infancy, and most of the application projects are still in the pilot or exploratory phase. 5G application is an industry with highly integrated resources and capabilities. As 5G network construction enters a stage of rapid development, 5G application innovation will continue to deepen, and the scope and scale of applications will also continue to expand.
