"5G + Industrial Internet" is gradually approaching By 2022, China will form at least 20 typical application scenarios
The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology recently issued the "5G + Industrial Internet" 512 Project Promotion Plan, which proposes that by 2022, 5 industrial public service platforms will be created in the "5G + Industrial Internet" field. The construction and transformation of the internal network will cover 10 key industries, forming At least 20 typical industrial application scenarios, fostering an innovative trend of 5G and industrial Internet integration, mutual promotion and multiplication development.
"5G will open a new era of digitalization of the Internet of Everything. Industrial Internet is the most important application scenario of 5G. The integrated development of the two has become an important direction explored by the industry and will have a significant impact on economic and social development." Chief Liu Duo said.
At present, countries around the world are accelerating the promotion of 5G applications, and industry is the key area. The United States is accelerating the deployment of 5G technology in manufacturing, intelligent transportation and other fields; the EU actively promotes 5G application trials involving multiple scenarios such as industry, agriculture, and smart cities; Japan focuses on promoting the application of 5G in the industrial field; South Korea also released " 5G + strategy ", smart factories and driverless cars have become their development priorities. At present, China's 5G and Industrial Internet have both started and developed simultaneously with major countries.
Liu Duo believes that 5G supporting application scenarios are connected from everyone to everything, and from the mobile Internet to the mobile Internet of Things, which can meet the needs of mass information collection, big data processing, and remote control. The collection and processing of large amounts of data will gradually shrink the technology Product and service differences caused by the gap. As "5G + Industrial Internet" gradually penetrates into agriculture, service industries and other fields, it will inject power into the development of the digital economy, and further enhance the intelligence level of traditional infrastructure, build new infrastructure, and support the high-quality development of the real economy.
At present, China's "5G + Industrial Internet" exploration is accelerating. As of November 21 this year, 113,000 5G base stations have been opened nationwide, and it is expected to reach 130,000 by the end of the year. At present, China has more than 50 industrial Internet platforms with a certain industry and regional influence. The average number of industrial equipment connections on key platforms has exceeded 650,000, the average number of registered users is 500,000, and the average number of industrial apps is 1950. Basic telecommunications companies and large-scale industrial enterprises have joined forces to accelerate the deployment in multiple industries. More than 20 types of integrated applications have been formed, with a focus on industrial manufacturing, energy grids, and smart ports.
Liu Duo said that, as a whole, China's "5G + Industrial Internet" integrated development started early and has a good foundation. The application has gradually extended from peripheral links such as inspection and monitoring to internal links such as production control and quality inspection. With the continuous deepening of integration and application, a cluster development pattern of “two regions, three belts, and multiple points” has been initially formed, led by the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and the Yangtze River Delta region, and actively promoted in the Lu-Yu area, Sichuan-Chongqing area, and Hunan-E Hubei area.
"However, the development potential still needs to be further explored." Liu Duo said, on the one hand, the application scenarios and profit models of 5G in the industrial field still need to be further explored, affecting the industrial enterprises' understanding of 5G and development enthusiasm. On the other hand, 5G has just entered the commercial stage, and the technology industry ecology has not yet fully formed. For example, 5G chips and modules are not yet mature, and they have not achieved industrial-oriented standardization, which directly affects the development of 5G industrial products or equipment. In addition, key issues such as 5G's in-plant network deployment architecture, network configuration mode, and insufficient upstream bandwidth remain to be resolved.
At present, China's "5G + Industrial Internet" is starting. Liu Duo suggested that in accordance with the relevant requirements of the 512 project implementation plan, strengthen the testing, evaluation, and application consulting service capabilities based on the 5G enterprise internal network construction and transformation, guide the construction of technology test beds and industry test beds, create typical industrial application scenarios, and support 5G The implementation of major national strategies such as strategies, industrial Internet innovation and development strategies.
"We must accelerate the use of 5G technology to carry out network transformation and deployment in factories, accelerate the construction of 5G network environments in factories, and provide facilities and resources for integrated development." Liu Duo said that a 5G and industrial Internet integration R & D system, innovation center, or laboratory should be established. Innovate the carrier, gather various research and development resources, and improve research and development efficiency and achievement transformation level. At the same time, it actively guided social capital into the "5G + Industrial Internet" field and provided multi-channel funding guarantees for integrated development.
