As 5G SA has been widely deployed in China, SA network has shown its value in both enhancing user experience and enabling digital transformation of various industries.
Mr. Zhang Xin shared the success experience of RAN sharing by 5G SA&NSA, and pointed out a high-quality 5G network with an average 5G downlink throughput of 1G bps in big cities cannot do without continuous technical innovations. China Telecom and China Unicom's 5G networks adopted dynamic DSS, iCell, leading energy saving solution and 3D coverage solution, etc., all of these played a key role in achieving ultimate experience and empowering the industries.
Mr. Mario Paier reviewed the development of Hutchison Drei Austria 5G network, and how it grows from the field trial to the industrial 4.0 area research based on SA network. ZTE's wireless and core network equipment solutions play a key role in this journey.
Most of the carriers expect to increase their revenue through 5G enterprise markets, and SA is what they're looking for.
Mr. Peter Jarich mentioned in his speech?that SA is at the top of the priority list. 35% operators are actively investing or committed to it and they start to deploy SA networks. The industry have now arrived, not just in the 5G era, but very close to be in the SA 5G era.
In cooperation with global carriers to develop 5G, ZTE has come up with new ideas and solutions to enhance the value of SA.
Mr. Bai Gang brings about the idea of driving 5G SA forward with ZTE "3E" vision, extension of network capabilities, enhancement of network performance and efficiency of resource utilization, will help 5G evolution develop towards a more promising future for all of consumers, industries and operators.
Madam Tang Xue gave a detailed introduction to ZTE Radio Composer, which is the industry's first intelligent orchestration radio network solution. Generally speaking, the Radio Composer can be compared with an intelligent urban traffic system, including multiple roadways such as the bus lane, the fast traffic lane and the truck lane. User orchestration features the function of guiding individual vehicles into their right lane, while the network orchestration adjusts the number of different lanes provided and the direction of the lanes in a certain time period according to the overall traffic situation.
In Jason Tu's speech, he mentioned ZTE's "All-in-One 5G Private Network" solution, which has diversified product forms, including "standard cloud-network dual cabinets", "compact cloud-network cabinet", and "single server i5GC".
