By RAN ZHENG|Sep 15,2023

Chongqing- A recent revelation by the Chongqing Communications Administration reported that Chongqing's 5G infrastructure development is at the forefront nationally. As of June end, the city boasts 24 5G base stations for every 10,000 residents, positioning Chongqing in China's first echelon of cities regarding 5G proliferation.

The more 5G base stations there are, the better the coverage and strength of the communication network. This is essential for modern apps and services that need fast and responsive connections, like self-driving cars, remote medical procedures, and advanced manufacturing.

By the end of 2022, China has set up over 2.3 million 5G base stations, making up over 60% of the global count, representing 16.4 stations for every 10,000 individuals.

Chongqing has witnessed considerable advancements in its digital infrastructure landscape since the inception of the 14th Five-Year Plan.

This transformation is not limited to 5G but encompasses gigabit optical networks, data centers, the Industrial Internet, and cloud computing. These infrastructures are pivotal in offering efficient, secure, intelligent information services across industries, driving industrial rejuvenation and inventive progress, which is indispensable in the digital metamorphosis of the economy and society.

 Vast network caters to Western China

Chongqing's communication sector has rolled out ambitious action plans in recent years. These actions have primarily aimed at the augmentation of new data centers, IPv6 implementation, and the promotion of green, low-carbon technologies.

IPv6 is the latest standard for internet protocols, addressing shortcomings in the older IPv4, such as limited addresses, security issues, and auto-configuration challenges.

The IPv6 format was created to enable the trillions of new IP addresses to connect an ever-greater number of computing devices and the rapidly expanding numbers of items with embedded connectivity, thanks to the Internet of Things. According to TechTarget Network, operating systems (OSes) like Windows 10, macOS, and Ubuntu support IPv6.

Chongqing witnessed a 108.23% surge in 5G mobile users since 2020, with the count now standing at over 15.8 million. Transitioning from 100 megabit to gigabit broadband, Chongqing now counts over 1.5 million gigabit broadband users. Districts like Jiangbei, Yubei, and Liangjiang New Area have recognized the distinction of being designated as a national "gigabit city."

Chongqing's achievements on the Industrial Internet front are underscored by its national top-tier industrial Internet identity resolution node, connecting to 45 national secondary nodes and almost 22,600 enterprise nodes. This vast network caters to Western China, with 23.3 billion identity registrations and 20.17 billion identity resolutions.

As one of the eight national computing hub nodes, Chongqing serves a national strategy to channel more computing resources from the eastern areas to the less developed western regions. Currently, within Chongqing's data center cluster are 15 mega data centers and 11 substantial data centers.
