5G development accelerates, pushing 5G networks to improve performance
A new communication technology typically dominates for a decade, evolving to provide stronger capabilities, before being replaced by the next generation. Over the past year, 5G has evolved at a faster pace, showing its enormous potential. Continuously improving the customer connection experience and enriching Internet of Things (IoT) services increase the demands on connection capabilities. “The ever increasing demand for wireless connections is the fundamental driving force for continuously advancing mobile technologies,” said Dr. Tong.
Therefore, 5G must constantly improve its capabilities. Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) services are driving a significant increase in demand for data, forcing 5G networks to increase their capacity to ensure a high-end experience. With the introduction of Reduced Capacity (REDCAP), massive machine-type communications (mMTC) services will be available on more devices to meet the wide variety of IoT requirements. Ultra-reliable Low Latency Communication Services (URLLC) require networks to reduce transmission latency and provide guaranteed latency connection services to meet the high-quality connection requirements of programmable logic controller (PLC) control remotely.
5G must extend its capacity limits to open a new commercial space
As new applications continue to emerge in the market, the three use cases originally defined in 5G need to be improved to meet the various IoT service requirements. The limits of 5G capacities must be extended to open up new commercial space.
Immersive interaction services are growing rapidly. 5G AR / VR enabled a superior virtual experience. With the rise of lightweight XR devices, 5G XR will also become a reality. This requires 5G to be further improved to deliver higher quality immersive experiences. 5G networks will need to increase their average speed from 120 Mbps to 2 Gbps as high definition improves by 4K at 16,000. To ensure real-time interaction in the virtual world, 5G also needs to further reduce transmission latency from 20ms to 5ms.
Uplink-centric networks are accelerating industrial digitization. Currently, 5G applications are growing at an unprecedented rate, increasing the requirements for uplink speeds. Various mainstream AR / XR services require high definition images and videos to be sent from local devices to clouds for further rendering. Remote control and machine vision in industrial applications also require real-time transfer of 4K and 8K videos. This will cause the proportion of uplink traffic on 5G networks to dramatically increase to over 40%. To cope with such a large amount of uplink traffic, 5G uplink capabilities need to be upgraded by at least 10 times.
In addition, 5G must provide sensing capabilities to enable remote control, vehicle-road synergy, unmanned transport and intelligent logistics. For example, by introducing Massive MIMO’s cell beam scanning in sensing technologies, sensing and communication, and even high-precision indoor positioning services, can be implemented through wireless technologies.
5.5G will become a driving force for the digitization of all sectors
Based on its abundant practices while helping to realize the prospects of the mobile industry, Huawei has proposed 5.5G to help explore new applications, including uplink-centric broadband communication (UCBC), real-time broadband communication (RTBC) and harmonized communication and detection. (HCS), with the aim of building an engine of digitization of all sectors.
“Technology and business are essential to stimulate and promote the development of an industry. The mobile industry, the world’s largest wireless connection market, reaches trillions of US dollars every year,” Tong said. . “The accelerated integration of 5G with various industries will create a new market space worth more than 10,000 billion dollars“Due to the lack of collaboration between industrial service connection technologies, applications are often limited to one or more applications, far from a scale effect. As a result, the market is only worth billions of US dollars. The continued evolution of 5G will improve network capabilities and expand service scenarios, adding additional support to achieve integration while reducing the cost of connections. US $ 100 billion in the IoT industry.
“Innovative technologies and applications will open up endless possibilities for the evolution of 5G over the next decade,” Dr. Tong concluded. “The wireless communications industry cannot succeed without unified standards and industry collaboration. Together, we must define the evolution of 5G and promote industrial collaboration to accelerate the maturity of technology and build a sustainable future with 5G.
