Up to now, more than 70 terminal types have been released or are under development.
5G solves the requirements of differentiated scenarios through feature combination and empowers vertical industry innovation. 5G+big video accelerates the 8K&cloud AR/VR era, 5G+Industrial Internet—create a new era of industrial Internet; 5G+Internet of Vehicles—accelerate autonomous driving and realize intelligent transportation; 5G+ smart city provides new ideas for comprehensive urban governance; 5G+ water governance realizes Xiong’an A new paradigm of smart environmental protection; 5G brings huge industrial opportunities to the whole society.
The rapid development of 5G has created direct investment opportunities. With 5G's transformation of ICT industry infrastructure, upgrading of devices, materials, and chips, and increasing demand for autonomy in chips, this field will face great investment opportunities. In addition, industries such as new processes and new materials will also face innovation opportunities.
TMT senior analyst Rong Zhineng of Tianfeng Securities Research Institute expressed his views on the long-term certainty of 5G investment, the impact of Sino-US friction on 5G, the specific pace of 5G investment construction, and the promising investment direction.
5G is the beginning of a new wave of technology, and 5G+ Internet of Things is a new round of development opportunities for the communications industry. He believes that it will focus on 9 major applications in transportation, energy, video entertainment, industry, smart cities, medical care, agriculture, finance and education.
"The rapid increase in traffic is the driving force for the industry's continued growth. Therefore, the development of 5G is expected to accelerate from a commercial perspective or from a national will." Rong Zhineng said: "As global operators accelerate the development of 5G, the main line of 5G network construction, The 5G edge network ecology and 5G application end have become key investment directions."
