In recent years, the construction of 5G+ industrial Internet has pressed the accelerator button, and various application scenarios have been continuously expanded, showing a vigorous development trend of new technology-enabled industrial transformation. With the rapid development of 5G, Ziguang Zhanrui recently held a 5G industry application seminar, and joined hands with many 5G industry pioneers in the industry chain to discuss the development trend of the industry and share applications with the theme of "joining the chain, condensing intelligence, integrating and sharing". Results, looking forward to the future of 5G industry development.
5G To B empowers thousands of industries
With the popularization of large-scale commercial use of 5G, the boundary between the digital world and the physical world will be broken. While 5G has been widely used in To C, it has also begun to empower thousands of industries in To B. The reporter learned at the meeting that at present, domestic 5G has penetrated into more than ten industries such as industry, agriculture, construction, and medical care. From the statistics of more than 30 provinces and cities across the country, the application of 5G industry has become the focus of the development of various provinces and cities. In 2021, the number of 5G application cases has reached more than 12,000. It can be seen that 5G industry applications have already had some chemical reactions with various industries.
Wu Bing of China Mobile Shanghai Industrial Research Institute said that at present, China Mobile has accumulated more than 100 industrial application scenarios in 18 industries, and a total of more than 5,000 projects have begun to replicate and promote. In addition, China Mobile also proposed the "Jiutian Artificial Intelligence Platform", focusing on several major industries such as industry, transportation, finance, medical care, education, and smart cities, enabling the digital and intelligent transformation of the industry.
In terms of logistics, JD.com has carried out in-depth cooperation with Zhanrui. Chen Yami, the 5G intelligent logistics architect of JD Logistics, said that some modules based on Zhanrui chips are used in warehouse robots and visual CPE. At present, JD Logistics operates 38 large-scale "Asia No. 1" intelligent logistics parks, and jointly released the "5G Fully Connected Smart Warehouse" with partners, involving operation scenarios from warehousing, sorting, monitoring, and operation and maintenance.
In terms of medical care, the 5G application innovation program "5G Smart Healthcare Lights Hainan Health Island" jointly declared by Unisplendour Unicom and Hainan Unicom, Unicom Internet of Things Co., Ltd. and other units is the first nationwide 5G-based technology covering all grass-roots institutions in the province. The remote diagnosis informatization project focuses on remote consultation, smart hierarchical diagnosis and treatment, smart hospitals, and emergency system scenarios to carry out 5G smart applications.
5G industry integration still faces many challenges
Under the trend that 5G To B is continuously empowering thousands of industries, the integration between 5G and various industries is also facing many challenges.
Chen Yami said that 5G To B mainly has four pain points. First, the issue of 5G service capabilities. The 5G To B service is not standardized enough, and needs to be strengthened for the industry to meet the needs of all walks of life. In addition, To B customers will have higher requirements than To C customers, including the protection and use of the network, which requires higher security and flexibility. Therefore, 5G has higher requirements for To B services.
Second, the cost is higher. Including operators, many manufacturers still use the network structure and facilities of To C to serve the needs of To B, so the cost is difficult to control. In this regard, many manufacturers have also been making changes, including setting up joint laboratories with operators. In the service of To B, some lightweight and lower-cost facilities may be required, including low-cost UPF gateways, etc. to meet the relevant requirements. To B's customers are more sensitive than To C's customers, so it is necessary to control the cost of 5G to meet the effective calculation of "input-output".
Thirdly, there is a lack of integrated solutions for improvement. For different industries, 5G helps the industry to reduce costs and increase efficiency, which is just what customers need. Whether it is a terminal, a network, or a platform product, 5G needs to be integrated into informatization and intelligence, and then form an integrated solution, which needs to be effectively integrated with the industry to effectively meet the needs of the industry.
Finally, it is necessary to create a "1+1>2" product. The combination of 5G and other industries is not just a "face project", nor is it a simple "1+1" combination, but requires the production of "1+1>2" products at lower cost and more High efficiency serves more industries. For the creation of products, 5G still needs to be improved in terms of To B.
Creating 5G industry integration innovation can start from chip simplification
As we all know, the development of 5G communication technology is inseparable from the blessing of 5G chips. In the process of 5G changing from To C to To B, the simplified development of 5G chips will effectively solve the various problems of integration and innovation in the 5G industry.
Although the role of each terminal type is limited, each terminal has customization requirements. In this way, differentiated requirements will be put forward for the entire module and chip. Therefore, this demand is not suitable for the traditional To C-oriented large-scale distribution ideas and the entire promotion method. Therefore, in order to adapt to the development trend of industry terminals, a lot of work needs to be done in modules, chips, etc., to solve the problems of customization, high cost and high R&D expenses, so as to meet the requirements of the industry and make Cost reduction in the process of industry terminal R&D or shipment.
Therefore, some experts pointed out that the simplification of chips will help promote the development of 5G in the direction of To B, especially, it can effectively solve the problems of "terminal customization and expensive terminals" currently faced by the industry. Today, lightweight chips are also faced with the need to find a large-scale market and large-scale applications. For these simplified functions, for industrial applications or terminals, it is necessary to know which functions are to be retained and what level of performance is to be achieved. function. For example, the State Grid needs the support of high-precision chips, but many functions are not needed for other industries, so some simplifications can be made in the chip, which can improve the quality of service and reduce costs.
The vigorous development of the 5G industry requires the upstream and downstream of the industry chain to work together. If you want to achieve breakthroughs, not only chip manufacturers, but also all walks of life need to work hand in hand, so that "everyone can gather firewood and the flame is high." Tao Hanfeng, general manager of TD Tech's IoT module product line, said that the entire IoT industry involves thousands of industries. Only by working together can we consolidate the foundation of the entire digital economy and society. Therefore, integration and innovation is the only way. Only in this way can we create high-quality and stable products and services.
