Wang Xiaochu is worried about how Chinatelecom will stand out in the 4G era. According to the news on July 8, 2014, China Mobile is the dominant player in the 2G era, and China Unicom has network advantages in the 3G era. Can Chinatelecom stand out in the 4G era? Now it seems that the competitor's TD-LTE 4G network has taken the lead

the late arrival of spring this year does not mean that the blooming flowers of spring will pass. As the leader of Chinatelecom, Wang Xiaochu, chairman of the board, made a statement at the 6th smart terminal and mobile Internet Industry Summit Forum on June 27 on the ltefdd that Chinatelecom strives to launch, such as the solution: do a good job of inspection before the zigzag experimental machine. Two hours later, the Ministry of industry and information technology approved China Telecom and China Unicom to carry out two 4G TD-LTE and ltefdd mixed group tests in 16 cities respectively

the decision of the Ministry of industry and information technology, which is worth pondering, seems to be a major benefit to Chinatelecom. After all, Chinatelecom can finally set up a 4G network according to its own technical advantages. However, for Wang Xiaochu, Chinatelecom and his 4G anxiety has not been relieved, but has become more serious. This is because the TD-LTE and ltefdd mixed group trials are more symbolic. Up to now, the Ministry of industry and information technology has not yet stated when to issue ltefdd licenses to Chinatelecom. This means that Chinatelecom is still unable to officially launch the ltefdd 4G network business

the differences in network systems and technical routes among the three major operators have brought considerable operational pressure to Chinatelecom. According to the latest data released by the three major operators, Chinatelecom lost 950000 mobile users again in May, with a cumulative net loss of 4.36 million mobile users in the first five months. In the same period, China Mobile's 4G users increased by more than 8million, and China Unicom's mobile users soared by more than 12million. Chinatelecom said frankly that it was mainly because its competitors launched LTE services and strengthened marketing promotion

4g license pending

at the end of 2013, the Ministry of industry and information technology issued TD-LTE licenses to the three major operators respectively. In the official interpretation, the issuance of TD-LTE license means that China has officially entered the 4G era. However, for Chinatelecom, TD-LTE license can not be a stepping stone to its 4G business. Due to historical and technological evolution, TD-LTE, as one of the international 4G technical standards and network systems, has been dominated by China Mobile in technology; From the perspective of technological evolution, TD-LTE does not conform to the evolution route of the existing 3G networks of Chinatelecom and China Unicom. From a certain point of view, the issuance of TD-LTE license by the Ministry of industry and information technology is actually a tacit consent to the preemptive behavior of China Mobile

at present, there are still disputes in the industry about the technical merits of TD-LTE and ltefdd. Generally speaking, these two technical standards are at the same level. However, for Chinatelecom, using ltefdd technology to build 4G network not only conforms to its own network technology evolution route, but also can make full use of the existing 3G network and effectively control the cost of building 4G network

unfortunately, half a year after the Ministry of industry and information technology issued the TD-LTE license, Chinatelecom still did not obtain the desired 4G license, and there was no way to officially commercialize it. As the largest competitor of Chinatelecom, China Mobile's 4G network has been officially in operation for more than half a year, and has been widely used in aerospace, petrochemical, machinery manufacturing, plastic rubber, ceramic building materials, metal materials, construction engineering and other industries for sub strategic adjustment according to the market response. The corresponding market awareness and number of users have been greatly improved. It can be said that in terms of 4G, after half a year of leading, China Mobile has left Chinatelecom far behind

with the rapid development of mobile Internet, the faster and better network means that it has greater attraction to users. In fact, the differences in networks have emerged. According to the latest data released by the three major operators, Chinatelecom lost 950000 mobile users again in May, with a cumulative net loss of 4.36 million mobile users in the first five months. Over the same period, China Mobile's 4G users increased by more than 8million. Chinatelecom said frankly that it was mainly because its competitors launched LTE services and strengthened marketing promotion

after obtaining the qualification of TD-LTE and ltefdd mixed group test, Chinatelecom was extremely positive and immediately announced that it would carry out LTE mixed group test in 16 cities including Shanghai, Xi'an, Chengdu, Hangzhou, Wuhan, Nanjing, jiquanquan load sensor south, Hefei, Shijiazhuang, Haikou, Zhengzhou, Chongqing, Shenzhen, Nanchang, Nanning and Lanzhou

however, China Mobile, which has led for more than half a year, still has an advantage: at present, China Mobile has built more than 260000 4G base stations, covering more than 200 cities. By the end of May, the number of 4G users had exceeded 8million, and it is expected to cover 340 cities nationwide by the end of the year

license is related to telecom transformation

for Chinatelecom and wangxiaochu, the importance of ltefdd license is not only an issue of 4G network business, but also related to the strategic transformation of Chinatelecom

the arrival of mobile Internet has greatly impacted the traditional business of telecom operators, and it is inevitable for operators to transform. From the experience of international telecom operators, in the era of mobile Internet, the income of voice, SMS and other traditional services that operators used to rely on for a living has decreased significantly; However, with the surge of user traffic demand, many operators' performance has not decreased but increased significantly through traffic management. For example, Vodafone, a European telecom operator, has cancelled the charges for voice and SMS in major European markets such as the UK, and only charged users for traffic. However, in fy2013, Vodafone's net profit reached a staggering $94.2 billion, making it the most profitable listed company in the world

in fact, domestic operators are in the process of transformation. According to the latest data from the Ministry of industry and information technology, from January to may, the monthly mobile voice traffic contributed by each user continued to decline year-on-year. Mobile local outgoing calls and mobile long-distance outgoing calls decreased by 6.7% and 4.9% respectively year-on-year; In the same period, the national mobile SMS business volume was only 314.62 billion, a year-on-year decrease of 18.4%; However, the growth of data traffic is outstanding. From January to may, the mobile Internet access traffic reached 701million g, a year-on-year increase of 52%, and the monthly average mobile Internet access traffic reached 171.9m, a year-on-year increase of 44.7%

seeing the current trends and opportunities in the industry, Chinatelecom has long proposed strategic transformation, and proposed that by 2017, the business income will double that of 2013, in which the income of emerging businesses dominated by Internet services will account for half of the business income of Chinatelecom
