China Telecom today announced the delivery and commissioning of the first phase of the Qingdao 5G Smart Grid Project, jointly developed with State Grid and Huawei. It marks the completion of China's largest 5G smart grid.
China Telecom said it will continue to work with its partners to promote other application scenarios to better serve the 5G smart grid. Social production and people's lives.
Qingdao 5G smart grid project adopts end-to-end 5G SA network construction and introduces 5G fully automatic multi-dimensional dynamic slicing solution.
Combined with 5G MEC's ubiquitous connectivity and ultra-performance heterogeneous computing power, it provides faster, finer, and more efficient slicing for grid applications. More accurate differentiation and deterministic network capabilities.
It enables new applications such as intelligent distributed power distribution based on 5G SA slicing, and 5G base station peaking and valley power supply. Staff monitoring transmission lines and distribution facilities through 5G+4K Ultra HD cameras on power towers can detect The potential for faults can save up to 80% of the manpower and resources required for on-site inspections.
With 5G's ultra-low latency and high reliability, it can also quickly locate, isolate and restore grid line faults, reducing power outage time from minutes to seconds or even milliseconds.
In August 2019, China Telecom Qingdao Branch, State Grid Qingdao Power Supply Company and Huawei to form a joint 5G application Innovation Lab to jointly promote the construction of 5G in smart grid and energy internet systems.
