Ericsson: Global 5G subscribers will increase to 580 million this year, to exceed 3.5 billion in 2026

According to foreign media reports, since the three major operators in South Korea launched 5G commercial services on April 3, 2019, it has been more than two years since the global 5G commercialization began, and more and more countries have joined. With the 5G commercial ranks, the global 5G commercial network is also increasing, and 5G users are also increasing.

Telecom equipment supplier Ericsson said on Tuesday that global 5G subscribers will increase to 580 million by the end of this year, up 360 million from 220 million at the end of last year and a 163.6 percent increase from a year earlier.

Ericsson also predicts that in 2026, five years later, there will be more than 3.5 billion 5G users worldwide, and the proportion of global mobile communication users will increase significantly.

In terms of regions, Ericsson stated that Northeast Asia is currently the region with the highest 5G penetration rate in the world, followed by North America. However, Ericsson expects that by 2026, the proportion of 5G users in North America among mobile communication users will reach 84%, and the proportion of mobile communication users in North America will reach 84%. Become the region with the highest 5G penetration rate in the world.

Ericsson also said there were 6 billion smartphone users worldwide at the end of last year, and they expect that to rise to 7.7 billion by 2026.

The agency pointed out that the next 3-5 years will still be a period of 5G construction dividend release. In the short term, with the completion of the 5G base station bidding test by domestic and foreign major equipment manufacturers, the third phase of domestic 5G bidding and centralized procurement is about to start. As the fourth largest operator joins the construction of 700MHz 5G wireless network this year, the number of new 5G base stations will exceed 800,000, an increase of 38% from 580,000 in 20 years, which will effectively boost 5G main equipment manufacturers, optical fiber The performance of module/optical device manufacturers, etc.

Among the relevant listed companies, Zhongtong Guomai is a professional construction enterprise with the first-class qualification of general contracting of communication construction and a professional domestic professional communication technology service provider. Its customers include major domestic communication operators and communication equipment manufacturers. T&C’s main business is the R&D, manufacturing and sales of various optical communication devices and their integrated functional modules. It has many years of technical accumulation in high-density optical connectors, optical splitters, planar optical waveguide chips and optical fiber sensing. .

So far, more than 160 service providers in the world have launched 5G, and there are more than 300 brands of 5G phones that can use 5G technology. Earlier, my country’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued a notice on the “Dual Gigabit Network Coordinated Development Action Plan (2021-2023)”, which pointed out that it will take three years to basically build a “Double Gigabit” network that fully covers urban areas and qualified townships. “Dual Gigabit” network infrastructure, enabling fixed and mobile networks to generally have “gigabit-to-home” capabilities. The development of gigabit optical network and 5G users accelerated, and the user experience continued to improve. Augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR), ultra-high-definition video and other high-bandwidth applications are further integrated into production and life, and the typical industry gigabit application model has formed a demonstration. The core technology research and development and industrial competitiveness of gigabit optical network and 5G have maintained the international advanced level, and the modernization level of the industrial chain and supply chain has been steadily improved.

According to previous news from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, more than 480,000 5G base stations have been built nationwide; the number of 5G online terminal connections has exceeded 100 million. According to incomplete statistics, as of the end of July 2020, 99 network operators in 46 countries/regions around the world have indicated that they have begun to provide 5G services.
