In recent years, developed nations have initiated comprehensive power grid upgrade initiatives. In line with its commitment to energy conservation and carbon reduction policies, Taiwan has advanced the implementation of Automated Metering Infrastructure (AMI) as part of its national energy-saving strategy. The plan encompasses the integration of 4G/5G and other communication industries. The noteworthy progress in the development and integration of smart grid applications with 5G communication technology represents a significant industrial advancement deserving of attention.
5G is recognized as a key enabler of Industry 4.0. With its high network speed and low power consumption, 5G facilitates the connectivity of every sensor in the upcoming unmanned factory to the cloud. This connectivity allows for the extraction of data for analysis, ultimately fueling advancements in artificial intelligence.
The 6G technology after 5G has already been studied by existing countries. Relative to the revolutionary change of 5G, 6G should be the perfection, strengthening, and further optimization and promotion of 5G technology.
In the field of manufacturing and supply chain, the technical assistance of Industry 4.0 and 5G and AI, combined with blockchain, can promote the new development of manufacturing and achieve more effective integration of hardware, software and services.
The three key global trends in 2022 also directly point out the major problems facing the communications industry. In December 2021, the 3GPP standards body reached a consensus on the priority and scope of the 5G Release 18 standard, becoming the first officially recognized "advanced" standard, which will support more device types and use cases in the future. The associated trend of network virtualization is having a huge impact on how wired and wireless networks work together, completely upending existing business models. At the same time, in the fourth year of 5G deployment, it is imperative to invest in the development of the next generation technology (6G).
5G is the fifth generation of mobile data technology. Designed to increase speed, reduce latency, and improve wireless service resiliency. In theory, 5G technology can reach speeds as fast as 20 Gbps, while 4G's top speed is only 1 Gbps. 5G also has less latency, improving the performance of business applications and other digital experiences such as online gaming, video conferencing, and self-driving car performance.
Smart factories combine digitization and artificial intelligence (AI), edge computing, drones, machine learning and other technologies to have ultra-high elasticity and adapt to changing production needs. 5G Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communication (URLLC) and edge computing using intent-driven orchestration are expected to enable 5G network-based manufacturing automation to realize smart factory concepts.
Wafer-level packaging (WLP) has gained traction over the past decade as the semiconductor industry continues to push for generations of higher-performance chips. Back-end packaging technologies are becoming increasingly important in meeting the demands of low-latency, high-bandwidth, and low-cost semiconductor devices.
Edge Computing is a distributed network architecture that allows data to be processed and analyzed closer to its source, moving resources such as computing, storage, and network bandwidth as close to users (or endpoints) as possible. Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), artificial intelligence, big data analysis to 5G networks, edge computing can be said to be the expansion and extension of IT environments and computing technologies that seek common ground in differences.
In an increasingly connected society, technology has brought about changes and reshaped business models. Through the epidemic, and looking forward to the future, emerging technologies can help companies break through business challenges and create a fairer and more resilient society. The following will summarize and explain the ten technology trends that will shape the industry in 2022.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is driven by the M2M (Machine-to-Machine) paradigm, which provides the ability to connect anytime, anywhere among many smart devices. Wireless communication makes M2M communication much easier, it has more applications.
5G technology will power a wide range of future industries from retail to education, transportation to entertainment, and smart homes to healthcare. It will make mobile more essential than it is today. What is 5G? What are the industry applications of 5G technology?
Surgical robots are useful for minimally invasive surgery because they can perform precise manipulations of surgical instruments beyond human capabilities in small surgical spaces.
New developments in wireless communication are advancing rapidly. Although 5G has just officially entered the commercial market, many designers are developing new 6G-related technologies.
Characteristics of the 5G network include high-speed large-traffic communication, high-reliability, low-latency communication, and large-scale machine-type communication. In the architecture of the 5G network, network slicing will be a key technology.
To meet the innovative application needs of the next generation, while ensuring the best user experience and energy efficiency, MediaTek pointed out today that 6G will enable ubiquitous global network connectivity, and 6G data transmission rates will increase to 10 to 100 times that of 5G's, giving ultra-low latency that will match the requirements of advanced applications.
In recent years, advanced countries have carried out power grid upgrade plans. To promote energy conservation and carbon reduction policies, Taiwan has advanced the Automated Metering Infrastructure (AMI) as one of its national energy conservation and carbon reduction plans, with 4G/5G and other communication industries included in the plan. The development and integration of smart grid applications and 5G communication technology will be important industrial advances worth paying attention to.
The concept of the Metaverse is to use immersive technology to create a second "virtual parallel time and space" in the physical world. People will be able to enter a new virtual world where they can work, socialize and play through virtual identities.
Technology seeks transparent and easy-to-access features, so that technology is no longer limited to a few Human hands; daily life scenes are also expected to be shaped by augmented reality, wearable devices, etc., with a brand-new future look.
The science and technology industry is a rapidly changing market. The ability to continue research and development, innovation, and provide value will determine the future of the tech market. Let's understand the trend of the science and technology industry.
