IoT 5G AI “opens the door” industry meta-universe has a fascinating prospect

The current Internet development is facing a new turning point. Key technologies such as 5G, AI, cloud computing, big data, Internet of Things, and blockchain have become more mature, creating conditions for the development of Metaverse and building a more magnificent digital space.

Standing at the key window of the rapid development of the industry meta-universe, the Internet of Things think tank and the Zhiwu AIoT Industry Research Institute held the “2021 China AIoT Industry Annual Conference” in Shenzhen on December 9th, and it was carried out online and offline simultaneously.

Peng Zhao, founder of the Internet of Things think tank, said: “In a sense, the Internet of Things, 5G, and AI are the infrastructure of the metaverse and the key to people’s entry into the metaverse.”

Two major development opportunities

Peng Zhao said that the AIoT industry is now transitioning from “product-centric” to “service-centric”. With the continuous improvement of production line efficiency, society has entered an era of great material wealth, and the following changes are Industry demand shifts from products to services, and the efficiency of services needs to be improved. When focusing on industrial services, we can find that the dominant force has changed in the path supporting the development of AIoT companies, gradually changing from inventors, engineers, and consumers to developers. In the era of developers, with the growing prosperity of the industrial ecology, under the ecological effect, changeable and edge platforms also usher in excellent development opportunities.

In the period of industrial growth, AIoT ushered in two major development opportunities.

The first opportunity is the industry meta universe. The meta-universe is not a simple virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), nor 2D or 3D, but an unstoppable digitization and virtualization of physical space, location distance and real objects, creating an always-on In the real-time world that is constantly being refreshed, people can not only live freely, but also freely create. In a sense, the Internet of Things, 5G, and AI are the infrastructure of the metaverse and the key to people’s entry into the metaverse.

“In the AIoT field, many applications similar to the meta-universe have been created, including navigation, smart buildings, and smart cities. First, digitalize paths, roads, and the earth from digital to virtual space, then perform calculations and planning in the virtual space, and finally return to reality. Space improves travel efficiency. This is actually a typical meta-universe application.” Peng Zhao said.

Some experts also believe that the logic of Metaverse is the CPS cyber-physical system and other things constructed in the field of Internet of Things. Many scenes in Metaverse are closely related to the Internet of Things.

The second opportunity is AIoT+ dual carbon. The Internet of Things has unique advantages in helping “Dual Carbon”. First, both carbon neutral and AIoT face a highly fragmented market. Carbon neutral lacks common needs and unified enabling technologies in different industries, just like the Internet of Things. Often face fragmented long-tail demand.

Secondly, the country’s willingness to promote carbon neutrality is as determined as it was then to promote the development of integrated circuits. In July 2020, the country established the first national green development fund with a scale of 88.5 billion. At present, the underlying logic of the Internet of Things to help carbon neutrality is developed around three points, namely the Internet of Things to help monitor carbon emissions; the combination of Internet of Things and artificial intelligence to predict and reduce carbon emissions; the combination of Internet of Things and blockchain to promote the realization of carbon neutrality And revenue.

5G2C will welcome new breakthroughs

In recent years, brand-new networks based on 5G are emerging. 5G has strengthened the links between things and enriched the Internet of Things applications of mobile networks in various vertical industries.

Wang Sujing, editor-in-chief of the Internet of Things think tank, said that with the advent of the 5G era, 2C will usher in new breakthroughs. “The previous 2B field has been discussed many times, and the application of 5G2C has not been discussed much in the industry. There have been two very noteworthy events in the 5G2C field over the past year: First, in October last year, the terminal slice of 5G chips The plan has been verified. Second, the Android 12 system started to announce support for 5G network slicing last month.” She said.

So, what exactly is 5G network slicing technology?

The power of 5G lies in the interconnection of everything. Not only mobile phones must be connected to the Internet, water meters, watches, TVs, cars, etc. must also be connected to the Internet. The use scenarios of a large number of terminals have ever-changing requirements for network speed, delay and other aspects. In order to cope with this massive network demand , 5G network slicing technology came into being. It is equivalent to building an overpass on the “communication road” of 5G. The original road is divided into multiple layers, and each layer is divided again. Each lane has its own role. One layer and one layer are like cutting bread. , Is the so-called 5G network slicing technology.

The popularity of 5G slicing not only has a large number of applications and commercial landings on the B side, but also 5G consumer-level applications. In the future, industries such as gaming, finance, and aviation will re-cultivation under the empowerment of 5G slicing. At the same time, operators will usher in a new growth curve because of 5G slicing capabilities.

Regarding the importance of 5G2C slicing, Wang Sujing mentioned four aspects. Specifically, first of all, some members of the public may not feel that the 5G era has come, and a very important reason is the imperfect slicing function of smartphones. Secondly, in the 5G era, we have not seen such a wealth of application scenarios as in the 4G era, so if the 5G network slicing mobile phone terminal is truly mature, we can enjoy a disruptive experience and give birth to more mobile Internet services and scene innovations. Third, it can bring new means to the industry to improve high-end customer service. If 5G2C network slices are commercially available, companies can order network slices for their high-end customers. Finally, in the 5G era, operators are also in the dilemma of not increasing revenue. Through 5G slicing services, high-end customers can be charged for providing high-end services to increase the revenue of operators.
