Five Promising New Opportunities for 5G

At the GSMA Thrive Forum on Emerging Infrastructure and Business Digitalization, Mr. Gan Bind, Director of Wireless Network Marketing, Huawei, delivered the keynote address “Five Emerging New 5G Opportunities.” Mr. Gan explained why “5G is the digital foundation for a new infrastructure that can improve communications, AI, cloud and computing technologies, industrial applications, and provide new impetus to economic development.”

5G Supports Any Scenario for Smart Personal and Home Communication

“By significantly improving the quality of communications, 5G technology allows us to go beyond the use of 4G on the user’s smartphone and implement a wide range of scenarios, covering not only smartphones, but also smart wearables and smart homes. This will make our daily life much more convenient,” said Mr. -n Gan.

In a new Global Industry Vision (GIV) report, Huawei predicts that there will be an average of five smart devices per person by 2025. In addition to eight billion smartphones, this number will include over 20 billion PCs, tablets, virtual reality headsets, smartwatches and smart screens. With high bandwidth.

5G networks will allow you to seamlessly switch between video calls, entertainment videos and personal data on any of these devices. In addition, through 5G, people will operate more than 20 billion real-time smart home devices such as music speakers, projectors, printers and blood pressure meters. The range of personal and home services will expand further.

With 5G connectivity, physical devices for home and office can be seamlessly integrated into the digital environment to create new intelligent infrastructure platforms for consumption, learning, travel and work. New types of intelligent services will emerge on the basis of these platforms.

5G empowers AI to benefit a variety of industries

In addition, 5G connectivity, supporting any use case, facilitates the use of AI and expands its functionality.

5G networks remove restrictions on data downloads. This means that hundreds of millions of devices will be able to transfer huge amounts of data to cloud servers, supporting the work of AI and significantly reducing its training time. With 5G, devices will be able to maximize the potential of cloud computing, which will reduce local computing requirements and device costs. Plus, by pushing AI to devices over 5G networks, the availability of AI-powered features can be dramatically increased.

As a result of the ubiquitous availability of 5G networks, real-time technologies such as speech recognition, machine translation, license plate recognition and production line control will permeate all aspects of human activity. According to industry forecasts, 5G will potentially increase the value of the AI ​​market by $ 1 trillion by 2025.

5G improves the efficiency of cloud storage and on-demand computing

“Cloud technology and business models are driven by hundreds of millions of connections and the availability of AI services, which are catalyzing the rapid growth of the cloud industry,” said Mr. Gan.

5G is driving demand for massive amounts of data storage around the world. Due to the limited on-premises systems, of the nearly 40 ZBs of data generated in 2019, less than 2% was retained. 5G broadband networks open up a new opportunity – the deployment of cloud storage for storing large amounts of data. According to Huawei’s GIV reports, by 2025, 92% of new data generated globally in the amount of 180 ZB will be stored in the cloud.

5G is driving demand for massive computing power. Due to the limitations of the applied technologies, less than 10% of all data has been analyzed and used to date. 5G enables devices to access powerful cloud computing power anytime, anywhere. According to Huawei’s GIV report, computing power demand in 2025 will increase 150,000 times over 2019, with data traffic increasing from 10% to 80%.

Cloud technologies are moving beyond the Internet industry and are used by government agencies, the financial sector and other industries in the production, operation and management processes of various enterprises. In China alone, one million enterprises will deploy cloud technologies in 2020, confirming the inevitable migration of all industries to the cloud.

5G Drives Cloud-Edge-Device Collaborative Computing

Computing tools have significantly expanded human capabilities. The ever-growing requirements for computing are driving the development of computing
