5GDNA Members Won Multiple Awards in the 5G Application Contest

[Chongqing, China, September 27, 2020] Recently, the third Bloom Cup 5G Application Contest was successfully concluded in Chongqing. A total of 4,289 projects were received. The vendor and carriers helped industry partners win multiple awards in the final, covering smart factory, smart grid, smart campus, smart healthcare and etc.

The "5G underground mine private network project" jointly declared by China  Mobile Shanxi Branch, Yangquan Coal Industry Group, Huawei, China Coal Industry Association, China Mobile (Shanghai) Research Institute, and China Coal Technology Group won the first prize in the contest. This project is the first 5G coal mine in China. 21 underground base stations, 9 ground base stations, and MEC platforms are deployed to ensure data security. The super gigabit uplink 5G function resolves the key pain points of communication difficulties for underground equipment personnel, intelligent applications such as 5G intelligent inspection robot and 5G roadheader control are deployed, effectively improving mine operation efficiency and security. It is estimated that millions of yuan will be generated each year.

The project of "Security Autonomous and Controllable Facilitating 5G Smart Grid Application Promotion", jointly declared by China Mobile, China Southern Power Grid, Huawei, China Mobile Guangdong Branch, China Southern Power Grid Digital Grid Research Institute, China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), Guangdong Telecom Planning and Design Institute, and China Mobile Communications Research Institute, won the first prize in the contest. Based on the security requirements of electric power applications, the project provides an innovative distributed architecture to carry multiple electric power services, builds a three-dimensional network security protection system for smart grids, and provides 24/7 digital power grid security situational awareness, ensuring digital transformation of the electric power industry.

In addition, the vendor, carriers, and industry partners jointly received second prizes for "5G+MEC Smart Healthcare Project for the Medical Consortium in Futian District, Shenzhen", "Practicing the 5G LAN Virtual Private Network, Building the Colour TV Manufacturing Collaboration Demonstration Industrial Park Project", "Haier 5G Virtual Private Network-based Demonstration Campus Solution", "South-South Aluminum 5G Smart Factory", and third awards for "5G Enables Smart Grid and Builds a Pilot Demonstration Area for 5G Industry Private Networks", "Liugang 5G+Smart Factory 100 Million-level Benchmark Application Implementation Project", also excellent awards for "5G slicing private network for digital transformation of county medical communities", "China Resources cement 5G+10 million-level industrial Internet commercial projects" and etc.

The 5G network features high bandwidth, low latency, and easy deployment. It combines edge computing, network slicing, and 5G LAN technologies to build 5G deterministic networks with differentiated and deterministic capabilities, meeting diversified network requirements of different vertical industries, opens up new space and opportunities for industry digitalization.

The "Bloom Cup" 5G Application Contest is hosted by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) and jointly hosted by China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), 5G Application Industry Matrix, IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group, and China Communications Standardization Association. The Contest aims to further promote the commercial implementation of 5G applications, helps the ICT industry develop with high quality.

In the future, with the joint efforts of operators, equipment vendors, and industry partners, 5G will be more innovative and more 5G industry applications will be blooming in the digital economy era.
