The 2022 World 5G Conference is underway in Harbin, the capital of northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province. Our reporter Yu Li tells us more about how 5G has affected people’s work and life.

World 5G Convention Exhibitors showcase various smart scenarios

YU LI CGTN Reporter “Exhibitors at the World 5G Convention showcased various smart scenarios in homes, factories, transportation, medical care, entertainment and even mining.” They say mining can take place in remote offices, with only machines on site. PRESENTER Huawei “The device is a 5G-based remote shovel. Mines in China are generally located in Inner Mongolia, Tibet and other harsh environments with high altitude and low temperature in winter. Miners have limited time for on-site operations in such an environment, and it is even difficult to recruit workers. Smart mining technology could allow workers to complete mining and transportation while drinking coffee in the office.” 5G technology can also help farmers control the cost of animal farming. ZHANG QI China Unicom “The data provided by the system can detect the growth process of live pigs and feed it back to users to help prevent epidemics and control costs. According to user estimates, a breeding enterprise that raises 10,000 pigs can save 2.3 million yuan per year, which is a considerable amount.”

5G is also contributing to healthcare, making services like tele-consultation, tele-surgery and intensive care unit visits possible. PRESENTER China Mobile “Through 360-degree VR holograms, families of ICU patients can visit them remotely, which is already implemented in some hospitals.” The combination of 5G and VR technology allows people to work and play in virtual worlds. SU HENG Business Development Manager HTC Vive “The software enables remote meetings and events. Everyone in their own home simultaneously enter a virtual space where they can participate in remote collaborations such as exhibitions and forums.” Currently, scientific research institutions and companies are cooperating to accelerate the research and development of 6G technology. CHEN ZHIPING Vice President, ZTE “6G research has received extensive attention. It usually takes 10 years to develop a new generation. We started 6G research very early, and the entire industry chain has done a lot of work to build a 6G ecosystem. Enterprises and academic research institutions, including ZTE, are investing resources in researching 6G applications, scenarios and needs.” Chen estimates the large-scale commercial use of 6G will be realized in 2030, and there will be more room for imagination in smart life.
