News from timedg.com  5G gets one step toward the commercial use. The latest news is that the standards of the first version of 5G will be released to focus on meeting the demands of mobile internet scenario and basic structure, which will promote the commercial use of 5G in China at the early stage. It is estimated that until next May, the complete standards and requirements of three scenarios will be further improved. In 2020, the commercial use of 5G will be achieved in scale. 

Against such backdrop, Dongguan companies are now actively carrying out the R&D and layout of 5G. The terminal factories like OPPO and Vivo, as well as the upstream and downstream companies in the industrial chain want to take some advantages when the tera-scale feast begins.

Vivo will launch the 5G commercial mobile phones in 2020

5G is regarded as the core infrastructure during the fourth Industrial Revolution. The communication market holds high expectation for the market featuring inter-connectivity of things initiated by 5G. At the stage of standard formulation, 5G internet is expected to promote the inter-connectivity of everything at high transmission speed with super-low time delay and mass connection.

Since 2016, the entire 5G standard was officially put into use in China. Our country conducted many experiments to 5G new technology, which achieved the standard. The key technology was completed in 2016 while the system demonstration at system level in 2017. It is estimated that the product R&D of 5G commercial use of all system equipment will be finished at the end of this year.

The CTO of Vivo Mobile Communication Co., Ltd Cui Xian assumes that from the current global R&D layout, 2019 will be the year of pre-commercial use of 5G, while the scale commercial use of 5G will be realized in 2020.

At the Mobile World Congress (MWC) which was concluded not long ago, 5G is the most popular hot topic. The end-to-end layout of 5G of Huawei received much attention. To talk about the relations between Huawei and international magnates, Huawei followed their pace in 3G era, kept in step with them in 4G era but takes the lead in 5G era. Such transcending is end-to-end, covering all areas of internet, terminal and chip.

In the internet, from the core network to transmission, station, Huawei takes the lead globally. The process of 5G commercial use is closely related to the terminal. At this year’s MWC, Huawei presented the first 3GPP standard 5G CPE commercial terminal in the world.

Its leading position does not come from incident, but the continuous high investment of Huawei in the R&D of 5G. It is learned that as early as in 2009, Huawei initiated the research on 5G, and has invested at least 600 million US dollars in the research and innovation of 5G before 2018. At present, it has eleven 5G research centers in the world with several thousands of experts in 5G research.  

The leading factory of local mobile phone Vivo also accelerates its layout in 5G. Cui Xian said that in 2016 Vivo established the 5G R&D center to fully engage in the research on 5G core technology and standard. Last year, Vivo started the research on 5G antenna and RF key technology. Now, the company has fostered massive 5G key technologies, which lays solid technological foundation for the exploration of 5G intelligent terminal.

Cui Xian stated that the product R&D team of Vivo also actively carries out the preliminary preparation and test work on 5G terminal. This year, the company has initiated the research and development of 5G terminal experimental prototype and plans to participate in the scale experiment of operator. It also plans to launch the 5G pre-commercial terminal in 2019 and realize the commercial use of 5G mobile phone in 2020.

Huge role in leading relevant industries

At present, the Guangdong Provincial Government printed and distributed the Three-year Action Plan on Information Infrastructure Construction of Guangdong Province (2018-2020), and clearly proposed to “take the lead in building a strong province of internet in the country”. By 2020 there will be 7,300 5G base stations and 359,000 4G mobile communication base stations, 147,000 site locations and 91,000 NB-IoT base stations. 

In terms of accelerating the layout of 5G network construction, the Action Plan (2018-2020) says that by the end of 2018, the Guangdong company of China Tower centers on the layout of site locations of 5G network and formulates the construction plan (2018-2022) on mobile communication tower site locations of all cities. Before the end of 2020, the 5G network scale deployment will be initiated on all fronts in the Pearl River Delta cities.    

The 5G industrial chain is consisted of the upgrading of upstream base stations (including the RF of base stations and baseband chip), middle-stream network construction, application of downstream product and application scenarios of terminal products. 5G is not far away from us. Along with the continuous development of industry and support of policies, it is believed that the explosion period of 5G is coming soon. According to Cui Xian, 5G will bring the tera-scale terminal market and direct information consumption market, which plays the huge role in leading relevant industries at the same time.    

Faced with the tera-scale market, many Dongguan upstream and downstream companies are accelerating the distribution of 5G and launching the applications and technologies accordingly in terms of scenario segments. Apparently, 5G will also provide opportunities for all kinds of emerging technologies to rise.

Established in 2014 and located at Songshan Lake, OptiSmart targets at the market segment of optical device of data communication. One important reason why OptiSmart chose to locate at Songshan Lake is to be close to the Huawei terminal. Along with the raising of curtain, OptiSmart will embrace new business growth.

Another company which is also located at Songshan Lake -- Guangdong Hengtong Photoelectric Technology mainly focuses on the R&D and production of optical, optical cable and connecting line. Huawei is its important client. Surrounding the technological R&D on 5G of terminal factories, Guangdong Hengtong also accelerates the research and development of supplementary products. To meet the demand of 5G communication, Guangdong Hengtong has successfully developed the 5G multicore MPO components and produced them in scale. This product can provide solutions for 5G communication.
