Up to April, 2019, Chongqing Unicom has built over 100 5G stations in Chongqing, and by the end of 2019, about 2,000 base stations will be constructed.
Chongqing Telecom will expand its 5G network pilot area from Wanzhou, Changshou and Liangjiang New Area to main urban districts and suburbs centered on Yuzhong District and expand the number of base stations from the original plan of 30 to hundreds in 2019.
5G changes our life
Cars can drive on roads without drivers holding the steering wheel. With the coming of 5G era, remote driving scenes used to be seen in science fiction films may occur in our daily life, which is the technological development brought by the combination of high reliability and short-time delay of 5G.
It’s known to all that Chongqing’s road network is special, with large road altitude difference, various bridges and tunnels and many congested places, while the motor vehicle quantity is increasing year by year. In order to ease traffic congestion in Chongqing, Chongqing Municipal Public Security Bureau actively explores the application of “Intelligent Transport” which can reduce the congestion delay index in main urban districts by 8.6% during rush hours.
For medical care, Chongqing is accelerating into the era of “Intelligent Hospital”, in which medicines can be delivered home quickly. On June 5, the Health and Family Planning Commission of Chongqing announced that the demonstration construction of “Intelligent Hospital” would be carried out within Chongqing, and 40 intelligent hospitals will be constructed by 2020.
In addition to governmental initiatives, the construction of “Intelligent Hospital” in Chongqing has cooperated with many technology giants since last year. For example, last April, Tencent signed agreements with many Chongqing medical organizations. They will get in-depth cooperation in fields like “Intelligent Hospital” and artificial intelligent in medicine to jointly promote the digitization of medical care and provide more efficient services for patients.
