China has granted the first private 5G network license to China’s Commercial Aircraft Corp, the maker of the first self-developed single-aisle passenger jet, the C919, for 5G connectivity at its factories.

The move is part of China’s broader drive to broaden the adoption of 5G plus industrial internet, a frontier widely seen by countries around the world as key to boosting manufacturing capacity.

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the country’s main regulatory agency, said it has granted China’s first corporate 5G private network license to COMAC to operate industrial wireless special frequency bands 5925-6125 megahertz and 24.750-25.15 gigahertz, which provide high-speed and low latency.

As manufacturers tackle modernization, automation and digitization, private 5G networks allow companies to manage resources and deploy their own networks. They can also securely store important sensitive data on their own networks and not have to send the information to telecom operators, according to a report from Swedish telecom equipment manufacturer Ericsson.

The MIIT announced the move at the 2022 China 5G plus Industrial Internet Conference, held from Saturday to Monday in Wuhan, Hubei province.

Zhang Yunming, vice minister of MIIT, said that the industrial Internet is an important infrastructure and a new industrial ecosystem for the deep integration of the new generation of information communication technology and industrial economy.

The innovative development of 5G plus industrial internet encourages enterprises to improve quality, reduce costs, increase efficiency and promote green and safe development. It also paves a new path for upgrading traditional industrial technologies and accelerates the implementation and popularization of new production methods, Zhang said.

“More efforts will be made to set standards for fully connected 5G factories by the industry.”

The added value of the industrial internet is expected to reach 4.45 trillion yuan ($617 billion) this year, accounting for 3.64 percent of GDP and up from 4.10 trillion yuan in 2021, the latest report said. report from the China Academy of Industrial Internet.

The industrial internet will help promote the improvement of China’s employment structure and stabilize employment, creating more than 1 million new jobs this year, the report said.

Currently, all major economies are prioritizing manufacturing development and have taken a series of strategic measures to upgrade manufacturing so that it is more oriented towards the digital age, connected to the internet and more intelligent, experts said.

Lu Chuncong, head of the China Academy of Industrial Internet, said teamwork across industries is key to accelerating the development of the industrial Internet. Industrial companies, telecom companies, software companies and industrial control companies must work closely together to strengthen research into core technologies.
