 DDT: the US lagged behind China in the 5G race and invested less than US $24 billion.


NetEase news on August 7th, according to foreign media CNBC, a study published by DDT (Deloitte) on Tuesday showed that in recent years, China has invested 24 billion dollars more in the next generation of mobile Internet technology 5G than in the United States. The United States is now behind China in this competition.

The 5G network enables people to download movies quickly, and to stream high bandwidth video for technologies including virtual reality. But in addition to consumer applications, the technology can also be used to support urban networking infrastructure, including driverless cars. In a recent study, IHSMarkit, an industry research firm, estimates that 5G is expected to generate $12.3 trillion in global economic output by 2035.

Therefore, it is not surprising that a competitive race is being held in this field. It has even become a factor in the current Sino US trade war.

At present, China seems to have more money to promote the development of 5G technology.

DDTs research found that since 2015, the countrys spending on 5G infrastructure has been 24 billion dollars higher than that of the United States. 350 thousand cellular base stations have been built in China, while less than 30 thousand new base stations have been built in the US. In just three months of 2017, Chinas mobile base station companies and operators added more cellular base stations than the previous three years in the United States. DDTs report points out that China plans to invest hundreds of billions of dollars in 5G related development.

For the United States, it may be more difficult to catch up with China in terms of investment. DDT estimates that the cost of adding an operating carrier in China is about 35% lower than that in the United States, which means that the latter takes 2.67 times more money to produce a comparable wireless network capacity with China.

In the report, DDT said, China and other countries may be creating a 5G tsunami that others can hardly catch up with.

DanLittmann, one of DDTs chief executives, said in a statement, for the United States, to maintain competitiveness and eventually become the leader, we should seriously assess the 5G competition and take action quickly.

DDT said in the report that the United States still hopes to catch up, suggesting that the country provides a low - interference policy framework to help reduce the deployment time of the equipment required for 5G. The consultancy also said that mobile operators and other partners need to strengthen cooperation. It recommends the establishment of a national communications infrastructure database to help all parties to share data. DDT also said that with the adoption of 5G technology and the advent of an era of great economic potential, a number of countries that first adopted the next generation of wireless communications technology would enjoy great benefits. The upgrading of the underlying communication infrastructure has also become more important. But unless practical measures are taken to help rebalance the private sectors investment in network upgrades and the external benefits to other industries and public interests, the United States may lose its leadership in the previous era. These negative effects may take decades to overcome, and other countries are already taking action. (ROBOM) source: NetEase science and technology report editor: Wang Fengzhi _NT2541
