Over the past 30 years, mobile technology has fundamentally transformed our lives -improving human connections and access to vital services on a global scale. Today,more than two-thirds of the world’s people are connected to a mobile network. Mobile connectivity impacts how we work, play, live, learn, and conduct business.

在过去的30年中,移动技术从根本上改变了我们的生活 – 改善了人与人之间的联系,并在全球范围内获得了至关重要的服务。 如今,全球超过三分之二的人口已连接到移动网络。 移动连接会影响我们的工作,娱乐,生活,学习和开展业务。

This is especially true for emerging economies, where mobile technologies currently connect 3.7 billion people and counting. Particularly for people in these economies, mobile technologies are the great connector, empowering societies, providing financial access to previously unbanked communities, and facilitating access to communications and information for those living in remote areas. The mobile industry fuels development – providing the tools to fight malaria, empower women, document birth registrations, generate new businesses, assist with refugee crises, and respond to natural disasters.

对于新兴经济体来说尤其如此,其中移动技术目前连接了37亿人口并且还在增加。 特别是对于这些经济体中的人们而言,移动技术是一个伟大的连接器,赋予社会权力,为以前没有银行账户的社区提供金融服务,并为生活在偏远地区的人提供便利的通信和信息。 移动工业为发展提供动力 – 提供抗击疟疾,赋予妇女权力,记录出生登记,开展新业务,协助难民危机和应对自然灾害的工具。

We are on the verge of another critical leap forward for mobile services, as countries increasingly shift to the deployment of 5G technologies. 5G has the potential to impact societies even more broadly than other mobile technologies, driving innovation and transforming the digital landscape across di¡erent industries and sectors of the society. We will soon see the mass availability of phones with faster broadband, cars that communicate with other vehicles and smart transport infrastructure. Add to that intelligent factories, and innovative tools for remote access to education and medical care, among many other new 5G-powered developments.

随着各国越来越多地转向部署5G技术,我们正处于移动业务又一次重大飞跃的边缘。 与其他移动技术相比,5G具有更广泛影响社会的潜力,推动创新并在不同行业和社会领域转变数字化格局。 我们很快就会看到宽带速度更快的手机,与其他车辆通信的汽车以及智能交通基础设施。 除了许多其他新的5G动力开发项目之外,还增加了智能工厂,远程访问教育和医疗保健的创新工具。

The benefits of 5G are truly global, with impacts and new capabilities cutting across industries (e.g. energy production, transportation, professional services, mining, healthcare). They also combine multiple use cases (e.g. remote object manipulation, high-speed broadband to the home and o¢ce, industrial automation, next-generation broadband for transport). However, realising the benefits of 5G networks requires the allocation of new spectrum, especially in high-frequency bands above 24 GHz, also known as mmWave.

5G的好处是真正的全球性,影响和新功能贯穿于各个行业(例如能源生产,运输,专业服务,采矿,医疗保健)。 它们还结合了多种用例(例如远程对象操作,高速宽带到家庭和工业自动化,下一代传输宽带)。 但是,要实现5G网络的优势,需要分配新的频谱,特别是在24 GHz以上的高频频段,也称为mmWave。

5G enabled by mmWave spectrum will bring far-reaching benefits to individuals, businesses, and governments around the world. The economic impact of mmWave 5G will vary between countries and evolve over time, taking into account national priorities and challenges as well as the development and deployment of 5G applications. Beyond the significant economic impact, the societal benefits of mmWave 5G are substantial, as the following regional examples demonstrate.

mmWave频谱实现的5G将为全球个人,企业和政府带来深远的利益。 mmWave 5G的经济影响因国家而异,并随着时间的推移而发展,考虑到国家优先事项和挑战以及5G应用的开发和部署。 除了显着的经济影响之外,mmWave 5G的社会效益是巨大的,正如以下区域示例所示。
