NetEase Technology News, April 13 news, according to CNBC, on Friday, US President Donald Trud · Donald Trump and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced several plans to accelerate the deployment of 5G in the United States. Trump said: "The 5G competition has begun and the United States must win. ”
Trump pointed out that by the end of this year, 92 5G cities in the United States will be ready to exceed the 48 cities in South Korea. Trump said: "This is a competition with great American companies. It is estimated that the wireless industry plans to invest $275 billion in 5G networks, rapidly creating 3 million jobs for the US and adding $500 billion to our economy. ”
5G is the next generation wireless network that will make data transfer faster. Unlike 4G LTE, which is primarily targeted at mobile phones, tablets and computers, 5G is expected to provide a more reliable connection for driverless cars and smart cities that use the “Internet of Things” devices. Driverless cars require continuous data connectivity, while smart cities will use connected street lights, traffic lights, and more, "Internet of Things" devices.
US carriers AT&T and Verizon have launched 5G networks in China, and T-Mobile and Sprint plan to activate their 5G networks in late 2019. However, there is currently only one Motorola phone that supports this 5G network.
Trump said: "In order to accelerate and motivate these investments, my government is releasing as much wireless spectrum as possible. We are eliminating obstacles in the construction of the network. The FCC is also taking bold actions that are bolder than ever to make the wireless spectrum available. & rdquo; Spectrum is a radio wave network used to provide Internet access to devices, managed by the FCC.
Trump also stated that the United States should not nationalize its 5G network, and private companies should act quickly to deploy faster next-generation networks. He said: "In the United States, our approach is driven and led by the private sector, and the government does not need to spend a lot of money. If it is led by the government, this may not be so good and it will not be so fast. ”
In the past year or so, the White House has been considering the nationalization of 5G networks. In March this year, there were media reports that Trump supported the government in the re-election campaign to play a greater role in managing the 5G network, while White House officials including senior economic adviser Larry · Larry Kudlow Oppose this idea.
In October 2018, President Trump signed a memorandum to guide the development of a nationwide spectrum strategy to maintain the US's leading position in 5G wireless networking technology. Trump said the move is critical to the economy and national security, with the ultimate goal of ensuring access to 5G networks across the United States and ensuring that no other country will surpass the United States. But the memo does not have any funding details, and the White House's plan relies heavily on the private sector.
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said that Trump's opposition to the nationalization of 5G networks is a “signal” for the private sector that is investing tens of billions of dollars in building 5G networks. Industry organization CTIA believes that Trump's statement “completely ends any misconceptions about nationalizing spectrum resources or government-managed 5G networks”.
When Trump made the above remarks, the FCC also announced the news on Friday. The agency said that starting from December 10 this year, the FCC will conduct the largest spectrum auction in the history of the United States, allowing operators to bid for new 3400MHz bands at 37GHz, 39GHz and 47GHz. The FCC said that the new spectrum will “promote the development of 5G, IoT and other advanced spectrum services”.
Since November last year, the FCC has auctioned 1550 MHz of spectrum for commercial wireless carriers to use for 5G connectivity. The third 5G spectrum auction will be the largest, and the FCC will sell 3400 MHz of spectrum in three different frequency bands. FCC committee member, Democrat Jessica · Jessica Rosenworcel said that the auction is a good move, but the FCC must also turn to the "intermediate frequency" band, otherwise there will be risks behind other countries. .
Pai said that FCC" allocated spectrum for commercial 5G will exceed the current total of all mobile broadband providers in the United States. As the United States competes in other countries of the world, these technologies will give the United States the advantage of ’”. He also said that the 5G digital revolution will promote the development of telemedicine and agriculture.
In addition, the FCC has introduced new regulations that allow “fixed satellite service operators to provide faster, more advanced services to customers using the 50 GHz band”. The agency also said that the current regulations "reduce the ability of users to deploy next-generation small network devices in their own home", especially in rural areas, and propose amendments to allow people to install "hubs and relay antennas" in their homes. ; to help stimulate 5G network growth.
Pai also plans to invest $20.4 billion over the next 10 years to build high-speed broadband networks in rural areas of the United States. The goal of the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund is to provide back-to-back auctions to service providers that are unable to access high-speed service areas and to connect up to 4 million rural homes and small businesses to high-speed broadband networks.
