The 5G Era of Industrial Internet of Things
In the age of industrialization, the 'Tie Gongji' represented by railways, highways, and bridges is the most typical infrastructure. In contrast, the 'new infrastructure' is the infrastructure construction that focuses on the technology side, mainly including 5G infrastructure, UHV, inter-city high-speed railway and inter-city rail transit, new energy vehicle charging piles, big data centers, artificial intelligence, and industrial Seven areas such as the Internet.

'New infrastructure' brings new opportunities

From 2G to 5G, in the past 30 years, the number of connected terminals is about to exceed 10 billion, surpassing the global population. In the future, hundreds of billions of computing devices will be networked, and both information technology and production technology are gestating tremendous changes. The fourth industrial revolution is accelerating, and the application of the Internet of Things is becoming open and large-scale. The Internet of Things is a key technology for intelligent manufacturing and an important way to realize digital transformation. Secondly, the degree of IoT in smart security, smart transportation, smart home and other fields will continue to increase.

The Internet and the Internet of Things are inseparable. Without the Internet, there would be no Internet of Things.

Industrial Internet is to realize the comprehensive interconnection of 'human, machine, and thingsThe Industrial Internet of Things is a cross network system of the Internet of Things and the Internet, and it is also a breakthrough in the deep integration of automation and informatization.

When the Industrial Internet of Things meets 5G

5G has the characteristics of large bandwidth, low latency, and wide coverage, which solves the network problems of the Industrial Internet of Things. However, 5G is not a silver bullet at this stage. There are still many challenges when using 5G to transform and upgrade the Industrial Internet of Things.

1. Challenges in base station construction

5G has been commercialized, but the construction of 5G base stations has not been completed yet, and 5G signals have not yet covered a large area, and 5G applications are restricted.

2. Cost challenges

5G phenomenon-level applications have not yet appeared, which means that 5G terminal demand is still at a low level, resulting in low 5G chip production and high costs, and the cost of modules is dozens of times higher than 4G. When 5G is truly popularized from base stations to application terminals, the Industrial Internet of Things will also reach a new level in terms of network deployment efficiency.

3. Standard challenges

The standards of industrial Internet of Things equipment and systems are not unified. To realize automation of industrial software, it is necessary to coordinate various equipment and be compatible with the private agreements of different manufacturers.

4. Talent challenge

The industrial Internet has a relatively long industrial chain and requires very high talents. However, my country is relatively short of talents in this area.

5. Security challenges

Cloud computing, especially public clouds, cannot dispel the security concerns of business owners. After privatization, it has brought about non-standard problems.

These problems are not only the difficulties faced by the current industrial Internet of Things development, but also the opportunities for entrepreneurs.

According to a 2020 report by BloorResearch, 5G, edge computing and the future Internet of Things are key drivers of Industry 4.0.

In essence, the new infrastructure is an informatization and digital infrastructure construction. Among them, 5G is a major change point in the field of mobile communications.

The future 5G network will help realize a large number of Internet of Things and IoT use cases and benefits in the manufacturing industry.
