In a restaurant in Phuket, Thailand, 5G cloud-based multi-task
robots lead guests to their tables to order, and then serve the
dishes to them, Trend reports citing Xinhua .
These robots are made by CloudMinds Robotics, a Shanghai-based
tech company which started its cooperation with Thailand's digital
service provider in 2019.
Products of CloudMinds Robotics have been replacing human crews
in security patrol, hotel reception, caregiving, offline retail,
temperature measurement and disinfection roles over the past three
years, and are venturing forth in other markets in Asia and the
'In response to the demands overseas, we continue to improve our
technical merits and application capabilities, facilitating the
transformation of local tourism intelligently through advanced
technologies such as 5G,' Huang Xiaoqing, founder of the company
said at the 2022 World 5G Convention that just concluded on Friday
in Harbin, capital of Heilongjiang Province in the northeast of
5G mobile communication technologies are underpinning the
digitalized, networked and intelligent transformation of economies
and societies amid the new round of technological revolution.
After three years of official commercialization, China has
become the most steadfast supporter of and advocator for 5G. It has
built some 1.85 million 5G base stations supporting over 450
million end users, both accounting for over 60 percent of the
With more than 20,000 5G application innovations, China
endeavors to facilitate international economic and social
advancements with its latest 5G achievements.
Recalling a case in 2019, when experts of China Mobile showed
him the application of 5G on rare earth mining, Stephen Orlins,
President of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, said
it surprised him that even though the control room was more than
1,000 km away, it could still guarantee and monitor the safety of
Such technologies might significantly promote economic growth
and job creation in China and the United States, he added.
In China, 5G applications have been deeply integrated into
intelligent mines, smart factories and digital ports, providing new
motivations for economic growth.
According to the China Internet Development Report 2021, China's
digital economy reached 39.2 trillion yuan (about 6 trillion U. S.
dollars) in 2020, accounting for 38.6 percent of the total GDP.
'These advances highlight the role of the 5G value chain in
promoting economic growth and sustainable development,' said Zhu
Juwang, director of the Division for Public Institutions and
Digital Government of the United Nations Department of Economic and
'If different regions have different standards, mobile
communication services will not be able to reach an ideal scope and
scale, and the cost of telecom operators and consumers will also be
higher,' said Liu Jian, ZTE's senior vice president.
According to Liu, Chinese enterprises are actively participating
in the construction, application and promotion of the global 5G
network, as well as carrying out scientific and technological
cooperation in the digital sector with other countries.
Qualcomm, a U.S. company also dedicated to international telecom
standards, has been working with Chinese mobile communications
companies for over 30 years.
'Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, we still maintained a 20-percent
increase in staff numbers per year in China over the past three
years. The strong momentum we see in the Chinese market reinforces
our commitment to further cooperation with our Chinese partners,'
said Frank Meng, chairman of Qualcomm China.
As 5G application enters a critical phase of rapid development,
it is now facing more complex cyber security challenges. Chinese
companies are therefore consolidating the foundation for cyber
security with their innovations.
To promote the development and industrialization of 5G
technology, global cooperation in production, education and
research is of vital importance.
'The advancement of technologies in China is also a process for
China to further open up and expand cooperation,' said Gong Ke,
executive president of the Chinese Institute of New Generation
Artificial Intelligence Development Strategies.
