With the development of technology, around 2020, the application of the fifth generation of mobile communication technology (5G) will mature. With the advent of the 5G era, large-capacity, low-latency network transmission will become a reality, humanity will enter the era of the Internet of Everything, and the construction of smart cities will also enter a new stage.
In the future, with the blessing of 5G technology, the construction of smart cities will develop rapidly.
A smart city is a complex system involving many technologies such as the Internet of Things, cloud computing, and big data. The latest data shows that 100% of sub-provincial cities, 89% of cities above the prefecture level, and 49% of county-level cities have started smart city construction. The total number of prefecture-level cities involved has reached more than 300, and the planned investment has reached 3 Trillion yuan, construction investment reached 600 billion yuan.
5G + cloud computing
High-speed, large-broadband, low-latency, wide-connection, and the combination of eighteen martial arts, what seems to be all-powerful 5G will drive the development of cloud computing? The trend of cloud computing in the 5G era, in addition to the Internet of Everything, but "Everything can be clouded".
Cloud computing technology has entered the second 10 years, and IaaS / PaaS / Saas technologies have converged and developed, gradually becoming a comprehensive platform that meets all IT solutions. As the world's largest telecommunications operator, China Mobile is supported by four first-class data centers planned throughout the network and supplemented by 31 provincial-level data centers across the country to form an integrated resource layout across the country. Based on mobile cloud services, China Mobile has formed a higher-quality IoT data application analysis platform that provides cloud platform support for smart city solutions for multiple companies.
In the 5G era, cloud computing technology is not limited to real-time information exchange between cars and cars, and roads. It can also provide predictive models for urban traffic planners.
5G + Internet of Things
The driving force of 5G mainly includes three aspects: business, network, and business model. As an important part of the business driving force, the Internet of Things will expand its number of connections from billions to hundreds of hundreds of billions. Massive connections and diverse applications have triggered the technological revolution of mobile communications, which has brought mobile communications New challenges also provide opportunities.
"Internet of Everything" has greatly expanded the consumer market for people. The Internet of Things platform has become a high ground for competition. With the support of government policies and funds from various countries, the continuous increase from closed vertical integration to an open level is inevitable for the Internet of Things. development trend.
Take China Telecom as an example. From the perspective of China Telecom, all future sensors related to security and safety will be interconnected through the Internet of Things. The currently mentioned smart public security, smart community, or other new smart concepts, although still a shallow level of IoT, In the process of application landing, 5G technology must be used to connect.
Based on this, China Telecom launched the "Five Networks Convergence" plan, which integrates fiber optic networks, mobile networks (5G networks), NB networks (Internet of Things), satellite networks (Tiantong), and human networks. Go to the center, solve the problems encountered in the construction of smart cities, and achieve cross-border integration with vertical industries. In other words, in the 5G era, the Internet exists more in the form of the Internet of Things, integrating cities.
5G + Big Data
5G has brought about the prosperity of the big data industry, taking action in all links of the industry chain, including connection, computing, storage, and applications. Not only use online data services to operate offline, integrate data to generate wisdom, but also reengineer processes based on data to achieve intelligent operations. High-quality big data should have six characteristics: “real time, big time, and real security” (real-time, continuous, scale, authenticity, security, and comprehensiveness), and operators are most qualified to develop big data applications.
From the current perspective, operators are shifting from "personal communication operators" to "industry information operators", using the advantages of big data to play a significant role in the construction of smart cities.
5G is considered to be the beginning of the interconnection of all things. Its essence is a broader, faster and stronger information technology based on wireless sensors, which points to more efficient and timely use of resources. 5G will not only bring about an increase in network speed, but also a reliable low-latency massive Internet of Things.
According to technology development trends, around 2020, 5G applications will mature, and smart city construction will also enter a brand new stage. 5G provides direct treatment plans for the smart grid's power grid / power, transportation, security, etc., and brings multiple aspects of social and economic benefits.
