The fate of the smart lamp pole industry should not be tied to 5g

2019, 5g has become a must for all countries in the world to compete for science and technology competition. As a new generation of urban information infrastructure including charging pile, video monitoring, environmental protection monitoring, pole screen and other modules, smart light poles not only shoulder the breakthrough of smart city construction, but also will become an important part of 5g base station construction in the future. In 2019, 5g has become a must for all countries in the world to compete for science and technology competition. As a new generation of urban information infrastructure including charging pile, video monitoring, environmental protection monitoring, pole screen and other modules, smart light poles not only shoulder the breakthrough of smart city construction, but also will become an important part of 5g base station construction in the future

since 5g base stations need to use high-frequency communication and support large capacity and high speed, a large number of small base stations will be required in the 5g era to complete more dense network coverage

from the objective conditions, whether the promotion of smart cities is successful or not is closely related to the popularity of IOT devices, the maturity of broadband network construction, the data transmission capacity and computing capacity of cloud data centers. Therefore, 5g base station deployment through street lamp posts is expected to accelerate the implementation of smart cities and form a close relationship with the reform and development of 5g era

the Internet of things has contributed to the surge of smart city construction

taking Barcelona, Spain, a model of European smart city, as an example, it has started the preliminary plan of smart city as early as 2008, including starting from urban planning and infrastructure construction to promote the intelligence of infrastructure in advance; The monitoring technology is applied to waste treatment and intelligent street lighting to improve treatment efficiency and achieve energy-saving effect

many countries in Asia have further constructed the development blueprint of "smart city" through relevant policies on information development, such as the "u-city smart city" in South Korea, the "i-japan smart city" plan in Japan, the MSc (Multimedia Super Corridor) promoted by Malaysia, and the "smart nation" in Singapore. Among them, Singapore has improved traffic congestion and traffic flow through a number of smart transportation systems, Ranked top in the global ranking of smart cities

on the other hand, the pace of China's smart city development has been accelerating

starting from the 12th Five Year Plan, China has listed the construction of new urbanization as a key development project, and encouraged cities to accelerate the establishment of smart city management systems, including the establishment of smart city pilot subsidy schemes, to fully promote the application of smart transportation, energy and monitoring

for example, Taipei and Taoyuan will successively promote the smart street lamp introduction plan in 2019. Among them, Taoyuan plans Qingpu as a smart city test site, while Taipei takes the street lamp network as a powerful IOT platform through the pilot of smart street lamps, introducing functions such as smart lighting, safety warning, traffic flow and pedestrian flow counting, parking space monitoring, environmental monitoring and digital billboard information broadcasting

according to the plan, Taipei will build 12600 smart street lights in five administrative regions in 2019, and it is expected to gradually expand to the whole Taipei within three years, with a total of more than 110000 smart street lights

in the development blueprint of smart city, street lamps will be the central nerve for the city to transmit information. The report issued by the American wireless communication and international network Association (CTIA) in 2017 pointed out that urban street lights will be an important infrastructure in the 5g era

however, it is understood that the distance between urban street lights is about 2030m, while the distance between 5g base stations is about 100200m. In other words, not every street lamp needs to be attached to the base station, which should be adjusted according to the coverage requirements

in addition, the government owns the property right of the street lamp pole. When the base station is placed on the lamp pole, due to the increase of current, the old lamp pole must undergo cable restructuring, power system configuration and other projects, and the load capacity, wind resistance and stable mechanical structure must also be taken into account

when various monitoring devices, such as environmental monitoring, monitoring equipment and IOT devices, are hung on the street lamp post, if there is no perfect integrated planning, the sight of various hermit crabs attached to the lamp post will appear. At this time, how to give consideration to the urban landscape will also become an important issue

the more practical problem is the limited funds and budgets. In recent years, China has encouraged local governments to adopt a "multi pole approach" to jointly build and share social resources. However, the relevant industry admitted that although the government has set specific goals for 5g promotion and has pilot plans in many cities, it is still difficult to apply it in a large number in the short term. The reason is that the smart light poles used in the pilot are expensive, so the reconstruction of infrastructure will inevitably invest a huge amount of money. It is estimated that about 240000 street light poles in Shenzhen will be transformed into "multi pole in one", and the preliminary calculation cost will be as high as about 50billion yuan

the infrastructure construction costs a huge amount of money, and the business model needs to be established.

it is worth discussing that the promotion of smart city does not have to pass 5g. Although the basic functions of smart street lights need to be connected at present, they can still be applied through 4G LTE combined with NB IOT (narrow-band IOT) technology, whether they are real-time traffic flow, safety monitoring, environmental monitoring and other functions. In other words, the landing of smart city and 5g can not just be taken for granted. The biggest problem in implementing 5g is whether the image transmission speed can be greatly improved. However, if it is difficult to find a suitable business model, it will be difficult to invest a huge amount of money and greatly shorten the design and manufacturing time for recycling

although the external design capacity of 35000 tons is full of wonderful imagination for 5g and smart city, the reality is that the government funds and budget are limited. After small-scale pilot introduction, if you want to carry out large-scale and comprehensive promotion, you must first solve the problems of who will pay and how to collect the cost. What kind of real benefits can urban intelligence increase and how much money the government can save are also problems facing us at this stage

perhaps the government, manufacturers and civilian funds will have the opportunity to bring win-win solutions through public-private partnership (PPP) or private finance initiative (PFI) and other modes, but the participants or only a few companies with sound financial health: they must be able to support the transitional stage of investment before recovery, and then make profits through energy-saving benefits and performance services

in addition, the key to 5g promotion lies in the attitude of the telecom operator (4) contact information of the construction unit. The dilemma faced by operators today is: 4G penetration has reached full, and they can also purchase multiple sets of equipment for production and at the same time. With the slowing down of intelligent growth, voice calls or continuous charges are difficult to bring revenue growth momentum. A new wave of machine switching and application demand brought about by 5g effect are regarded as market specific drugs. However, 5g investment funds are huge, and it is difficult to predict the future payback period. When the infrastructure construction is completed, what business model will be used to make profits, At present, the prospect is still ambiguous

a smart city can not be just a castle in the air or limited to small-scale test scenarios. The benefits of 5g bringing smart connectivity and urban transformation can be seen and expected. However, the transformation of smart light poles must first solve the problem of the alternation of times in infrastructure construction, and at the same time, 5g technology and mature commercial operation environment must be combined to obtain rich returns
