60 years ago, the message was sent by artificial means; 40 years ago, the postal delivery letters had to be over the snowy mountain. A letter may be received in half a month, or it may be received in half a year; 25 years ago, the BP machine became a symbol of wealthy people; 20 years ago, mobile phones began to enter the people’s lives.
Speaking of communication equipment, every generation has its memory, and the biggest change in communication is the era of transition from letters to telephones. The emergence of mobile phones leads us to enter the era of the mobile internet. Nokia’s impression after 80 and 90 should be the most profound. It runs through the youth after 8090 and also witnesses the great development of the communications industry.
Modern communication not only satisfies the various needs of our lives but also quietly changes our way of life, making our life, study and work more convenient. From the weather software on the mobile phone, we can instantly know about the weather forecast. Remote video chat has brought us closer to life. Mobile phones allow us to stay in touch anytime, anywhere. Besides, we can enjoy shopping without leaving our home through the Internet.
The improvement of communication capabilities has made emerging scenes such as accelerated edge computing, autonomous driving, and mixed reality popular. In the 5G period, China’s communications market will still lead the world, followed by North America, Western Europe, Japan, and Korea. We judge that domestic operators will start small-scale commercial 5G in Q3 in 2019, which is close to the commercial progress in Europe and America. Functionally, 5G millisecond latency and gigabit networks will be able to efficiently connect to cloud computing, saving terminal computing power and supporting emerging scenarios such as autopilot, ARVR, 4K/8K HD video.
