China will further strengthen the research and development of 5G technology, said Zhang Feng, spokesman of China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology on July 22, 2015. When people still talk about 4G, 5G is ready to go.

How do we understand 5G? For general consumers, it takes 70 minutes to download an 8G movie in the 3G era, 7 minutes in the 4G era, and 6 seconds in the 5G era.

5G, namely, the fifth generation mobile communications technology, which is not an independent new technology like 3G or 4G, but the technology evolution of existing wireless access technologies including 2G, 3G, 4G and WiFi.

The future direction of development of 5G mobile broadband network is to establish a platform that integrates the mobile intelligent terminal, broadband and the cloud. The platform will be a basis of social and industrial operation, like other public facilities.

Cao Shumin, director of China Academy of Telecommunication Research, said that China has actively participated in the setting of 5G international standards. Chinese enterprises are working on patent research, product development and global promotion of 5G technology, so as to establish strategic assets.

Some experts pointed out that the rise of China's mobile communication technology will change the situation of world communication industry. The Chinese version 5G standard is hopefully the world standard in the 5G era.
