Li Xiaotong, Vice President at ZTE, General Manager of RAN products, delivered a speech entitled "New Horizon of 5G Advanced," and shared ZTE's understanding, planning and achievements of 5G-A. "5G-A is consistent with the evolution direction of 5G-A and 6G in the industry, which is an enhancement to 5G and a connection to 6G. 5G-A will enhance its capabilities in three major 5G scenarios, in terms of eMBB, mMTC and uRLLC, and meanwhile, it will open up three major scenarios, including integrated sensing & communication, universal intelligence and ubiquitous connectivity." said Li Xiaotong. "Through the six-dimensional scenarios' enhancement and expansion, 5G-A will continuously realize the infinite value for B2C digital life, B2B digital industry and B2X digital society. ZTE has implemented several 5G-A use cases in different domains, demonstrating the exciting prospect of 5G-A."

During the product release event, ZTE unveiled 10 stunning innovative products incorporating three categories, the simplest and high efficient UBR and FDD M-MIMO products, the mmWave products and NTN ground base station to extend 5G-A scenarios, and the a series of products with integrated communication and computing for rich B2C, B2B applications.

At the conference, representatives of China's three major operators also respectively shared their practical experience and unique insights into 5G-A.

Cao Lei, Deputy Director of Wireless and Terminal Technology, China Mobile Research Institute, delivered a comprehensive speech entitled "5G-A Promotes the Prosperity of Low-Altitude Economy," which systematically outlined the growth trends of the low-altitude economy, the business scenarios it encompassed and the key role of 5G-A in strengthening this sector.

Cao Lei said that the low-altitude economy has become a new track for global economic development, covering express logistics, emergency rescue, environmental monitoring, agriculture, forestry and plant protection, consumer entertainment and many other fields. When 5G-A meets new tracks, it stimulates unlimited opportunities.

China Mobile actively cooperates with the industry to conduct research on low-altitude intelligent network technology based on 5G-A, takes the lead in formulating technical standards such as UAV terminal capability identification, proposes a low-altitude networking technology system for all scenarios, and innovatively puts forward key technologies such as terminal-based interference control in response to the prominent problems of high interference and frequent handovers in the low-altitude scenario.

Fan Bin, Director of the Wireless Network of China Unicom, pointed out that China Unicom has built up the world's largest co-constructed and shared 5G network, and made significant achievements in 5G industrial applications. With the upgrading of the network capabilities, 5G applications in vertical industries are moving deeper from non-critical production to critical production. 5G-A with high deterministic capability is one of the best choices to meet the requirements of mobility, easy to wear and tear, massive connectivity, and frequent adjustment. China Unicom, together with ZTE and leading enterprises in the industry, have conducted multiple commercial practices of 5G-A applications in the critical production domains, such as 5G-A + cloud-based PLC application in WuHu Midea Kitchen & Bath Appliances Manufacturing Co., Ltd. and 5G-A + industrial control application in Wuhan Iron and Steel Co.,Ltd..

Wei Yao, Director of China Telecom Research Institute of Mobile and Terminal Technology, presented the significant advancements achieved by China Telecom in deterministic network. Furthermore, based on their experience in digital transformation practices within the industry, he discussed the future direction of wireless network development. Wei Yao emphasized that establishing deterministic network capacity is crucial for industry applications to penetrate the critical production effectively. In collaboration with ZTE, China Telecom aims to continue driving technological innovation, and empowering the new development of industries.

5G-A is about to enter large-scale construction and accelerate commercial use. ZTE will work with all sectors of the industry to jointly promote the continuous iteration and commercial practice of 5G-A technology, and drive continuous and in-depth development of global digital and intelligent transformation.
