ISLAMABAD: (APP) China to deploy 5G Mobile Data Transfer Technology

 

China is at the "forefront" globally of deploying 5G technology, which promises faster speed and higher bandwidth, said the GSM Association, a global industry body.

 

"China's major operators are all working on 5G and will be early adopters of the technology," said Mats Granryd, director-general of the Global System for Mobile Communications Association.

 

China intends to develop 5G telecommunications frequency and standard for testing and trial network operation between 2016 and 2018, before officially debuting the technology around 2020, according to the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Shanghai Daily reported.

 

The 5G will be suitable for new applications requiring big data transfer and analysis, such as automatic driving and advanced drone control.
