Full coverage: 2016 NPC & CPPCC Sessions

Editor's note: The National People's Congress (NPC), China's top parliamentary body, and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), China's top political advisory body, convene its annual sessions, known as the "two sessions" on March 3-15 2016, which marks a pivotal year as the nation continues on to embark with its reforms and opening up policy, shifting towards a "New Normal" for economic growth rates, starting its 13th Five-Year Plan for social and economic development over the next five years and confronting challenges on the foreign policy front. How will the NPC address those concerns? What do foreign experts and Overseas Chinese say? The Panview Column of CNTV has invited some of them to express their views on major issues to be discussed at the ongoing two sessions.

China's MIIT (Ministry of industry and information technology) has begun testing 5G technology with a goal to have it made available nationwide by 2020.
The testing will be carried out by IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group under the leadership of MIIT while receiving support from the National Science and Technology Major Project.


The verification phases will have a focus on performance testing of single-point technology prototypes that have already started.

The second focal point is technical solution verification, which is on track to start in June 2016 and it can merge with multiple technologies and in turn have performance tests of a single base.

The full system verification and preparation for the commercial market will take place in June 2017 and is projected to be completed sometime in mid 2018.

The financial benefits would have wide margins of interest around the world. The International Telecommunication Union announced that it plans to introduce 5G standards by 2020 as well.

Huawei (Chinese telecommunications manufacturer) and MegaFon (Russian mobile operator) have already reached an agreement to develop a 5G debut for the 2018 FIFA World Cup that would position Russia as the first country to have the 5G network.

The European Union (EU) appears very interested in the network, as well and wanting to have it available for EU member states.

Beijing has committed to an agreement on 5G with the EU to reach a common vision and standards regarding the future of mobile technology that includes research funding and market access.

It would be a requirement as the issue with self driving cars being low latency for the time required to take data to travel to a third party server and return.

The 5G Candidate Radio technologies and key enabling technologies are Massive MIMO, Ultra Dense Network, Novel Multiple Access, All Spectrum Access, New Multi Carrier, Advanced MCS, Flexible Duplex, D2D, Spectrum Sharing.
The 5G network features are Diversified RAN Networking networking mode: C-RAN, D-RAN, Mesh, D2D, BS plug-in and to fit different 5G wireless scenarios Support diverse, Flexible Function Enabling that consists of Modularized Network functions.

Network functions can be deployed flexibly-based on the NFV platform; On-demand Slicing, which orchestrates network resource on-demand for each slice isolated slices to ensure efficiency, elasticity, security and robustness.
5G technology would enable higher download speeds and would increase downloads to 10 gigabits per second. It would also deliver one millisecond latency in comparison to the 4G that only delivers 40-80 milliseconds.
The telecom Industry has served as an example of great success for Chinese economic expenditures. The global standard based on the design from China is prestigious and a tremendous infusion for the domestic economy.
The superfast mobile Internet and 5G development in China has been accelerated to include support from the Chinese government with an emphasis on becoming technological champions while strengthening their market.
Beijing plans to continue strengthening communication and coordination within the telecommunications industry, including industry policy, regulatory policy and investments.

The government intends to call for further support needed in operations that will lead to an increase in the infrastructure, acceleration of network construction and innovation in business.

The development of new applications can provide the foundation needed for added development of the mobile telecommunications industry.
