Promote the development of 5G applications, let 5G really bloom

Communication World Network News (CWW) June 7, 2018, guided by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, China Information and Communication Research Institute and IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group sponsored the "Bloom Cup 5G Application Collection Competition Final" Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics.


At the meeting, Wen Ku, Director of the Information and Communication Development Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, delivered a speech. He pointed out that at present, 5G commercial footsteps are getting closer and closer, and exploring and promoting the popularization of 5G typical applications has become the key to successful commercialization of 5G.


5G Application Collection Competition


 The ‘Bloom Cup’ 5G Application Collection Competition was officially launched on February 1, 2018. During the project collection period, the organizers held a series of activities such as 5G application industry seminar, wireless network and medical industry integration development summit forum, car networking forum, 5G VR/AR innovation forum, industrial internet theme forum, and Internet of Things open source platform forum.


After three months of project collection, more than 300 entries were received in the competition. After the initial review and rematch of the industry experts, a total of 30 projects were successfully selected for the finals. In the finals today, the first and second prizes of the competition were selected.


Wenku said that through this application collection contest, we have already seen the application potential of 5G in various fields such as industrial internet, car networking, and smart medical care, and felt the innovation and entrepreneurial vitality of enterprises and individuals.


In order to further promote the development of 5G applications, Wenku put forward three suggestions:


The first is to focus on cross-border integration. On the one hand, we must strengthen technology integration and innovation, promote the deep integration of 5G and cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence and other ICT cutting-edge technologies, and constantly improve the level of intelligence in the field of information and communication; on the other hand, we must further deepen the application of integration innovation, and vigorously cultivate 5G. With the integration of industrial, transportation, medical, environmental and other fields, we will continue to explore new products, new formats, and new models to help the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries.


The second is application-driven development. Currently targeting 5G commercialization, we must focus on discovering innovative applications that can be replicated, promoted, and quickly put into the market in technology and business models, and promote the emergence of open and platform-based integrated application solutions, by exploiting the radiation and demonstration effects of typical applications. Drive the scale and diversification of 5G services and applications.


The third is to accelerate the promotion of incubation. In the application collection contest, a number of outstanding innovation cases have emerged. In the next step, we must strive to achieve effective conversion of the results of the competition, increase the intensity of application incubation, promote the industrialization of terminals, networks and platforms for fusion applications, and promote the innovation chain and industrial chain. The continuous development of the capital chain lays the foundation for 5G commercialization.
