Nowadays, 5G is accelerating to come to us. With the advancement of 5G technology, all equipment interconnection will reshape all aspects of our life. At the same time, the massive equipment connection will also accelerate the popularity of the Internet of Things. So, what can 5G bring to us?
1. smart city
The smart city is the most typical application scenario of 5G. 5G will be the infrastructure to support social situational awareness and the technical way to achieve smooth communication channel. In the 5G era, the Internet exists more in the form of the Internet of Things and further integrates the city. Data collection and analysis will become very fast and can be calculated in microseconds, making the Internet of everything truly achievable. One obstacle to the current construction of smart city is that there is no public information platform, and data mining applications are greatly limited. With the advent of 5G, the information will be added to the chip for each new item, making it easier to collect. In this case, the data becomes a gridded and flat information transmission. It is no longer unique to a certain department, and the data becomes a resource that no one can monopolize, breaking the phenomenon of “information island”. In this case, the smart city is really possible.
2 .smart driving
The 5G ultra-reliable and low-time delay feature can be said to be what exactly unmanned drive need. Existing sensing technologies, such as radars and cameras, actually provide a vehicle with the ability to see, but there is no way to interact with the car, and this ability to see will be affected by weather conditions such as rain and fog. With 5G interactive perception, the car can make an output to the external environment, not only to detect the state but also to make some feedback. There are many scenes in the coordination of automatic driving, such as automatic overtaking, cooperative collision avoidance, and vehicle formation all require reliability and delay, which require a 5G guarantee.
3. smart medical
In the future, 5G will enter the era of “Internet of Everything”. 5G adopts a unified, flexible and configurable air interface technology framework to meet diverse scenarios, flexible system design, large-scale antennas, and new technologies, improving system performance. At the same time, demand and new information technology NFV/SDN promote 5G service-oriented new network architecture, using network slicing, edge computing and other technologies to meet the needs of various industries. In the medical industry, 5G networks have facilitated the rapid promotion of online and convenient medical services, and telemedicine has improved the quality of medical resources. In the future, 5G will promote smart healthcare to become wireless, intelligent and fully connected.
4. smart manufacturing
5G has become a key technology to support the transformation of smart manufacturing. 5G technology can use three major scenarios to connect a wide range of scattered people, machines and equipment to build a unified Internet. Due to its real-time and high reliability, 5G technology can be used not only in industrial scenarios but also to support personal mobile Internet applications. The development of 5G technology can help manufacturing enterprises to get rid of the confusing application state of wireless network technology in the past, which has positive significance for promoting the implementation of industrial Internet and the transformation of smart manufacturing.
5. smart monitoring
For monitoring equipment, 5G technology can faster transmit ultra-high-definition surveillance video resources. Video surveillance will no longer be limited to fixed networks, and the data processing capability of the intelligent back-end will be accelerated, reducing the delayed loss from network transmission and multi-level forwarding. The video captured by the camera can be locally shunted, which greatly reduces the bandwidth resource occupation issue and solves the problem of mobile core network congestion. After the 5G network is officially commercialized, the monitoring equipment will further enter the era of 8K resolution, which means more high-definition pictures, richer video details, a higher value of video surveillance analysis, and more market opportunities.
Nowadays, mobile operators, government agencies, equipment suppliers, and vertically-applied enterprises have already taken action to prepare for the future of 5G commercial opportunities. Security companies should also be prepared. On the way to 5G, everyone should embrace new technologies with a more open mind and strive to become the “main force” in the 5G era.
