The Internet is laying out the future under the digital economy strategy

The Internet industry has achieved rapid development and overtaking, providing strong support for the construction of a strong network country. In the next step, the Internet industry should follow the general trend of digital development, grasp the new opportunities brought by the rapid development of the digital economy, adhere to the parallel development and regulation, and promote the standardized and healthy sustainable development of the platform economy.

The rapid development of the Internet industry. Experts said that the Internet industry to achieve a “bend in the road to overtake”. Today, the Internet has penetrated into every area of the economy and society, becoming a key infrastructure for national development and an important force driving social development.

At present, the Internet is a global leader in network development, with the world’s largest fiber-optic network, 4G network and 5G independent network. 5G has already achieved commercial scale, with 916,000 base stations built, accounting for 70% of the world’s total; the number of 5G connections exceeds 365 million, accounting for 80% of the world’s total; and there are more than 10,000 typical applications of 5G in industries such as industry, transportation, education, healthcare and cultural tourism, a global leader.

It is especially worth mentioning that 5G cell phones are becoming increasingly popular, and various types of terminal devices applying 5G technology are accelerating commercialization. In the first half of this year, 174 million domestic cell phones were shipped, including 128 million 5G phones, up 100.9% year-on-year. Meanwhile, important progress was made in the research and development of fundamental and universal technologies, and the number of 5G standard-essential patents accounted for 38% of the world, continuing to maintain a leading position.

The report said that China’s Internet industry has achieved rapid development, the scale of Internet users has grown steadily, the network infrastructure has become increasingly complete, the digital transformation of industry has been effective, the innovation capacity has been continuously improved, the information development environment has been continuously optimized, the digital economy has flourished, and network governance has been gradually improved, providing strong support for the construction of a strong network country.

The real economy needs Internet support. Wu Hequan, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and director of the Advisory Committee of the Internet Society of China, pointed out that the development of China’s real economy needs Internet support, and Internet development should seize new opportunities to combine with industry.

According to Wu Hequan, China’s Internet development has three main characteristics: First, it provides many opportunities for trial and error in the development of Internet enterprises, and much of the current work in the governance of the Internet is also for the more standardized development of the Internet. Second, the network infrastructure is piloted first, the fiber optic penetration rate has reached 98% among broadband network users, and the Internet development has a solid foundation. Third, the advantages of the national situation and labor bonus advantage, so that the Internet to achieve rapid development. Wu Hequan also pointed out that there are still many shortcomings in the development of the Internet in China, for example, it is still lagging behind in some core technologies, and the support of the Internet for the real economy is not enough.

Ni Guangnan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, pointed out that data network technology should be used to empower the development of the digital economy, hoping to better drive collaborative innovation through data network innovation technology and promote the development of related big data and other new generation information technology. He said that in the new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial change, it is necessary to focus on the advantages and resources to create a support platform based on data network technology.

Grasp the new opportunities of Internet development.

Yu Xiaohui, president of the Institute of Information and Communication Technology, said that industrial Internet and industrial Internet will have a very big impact on the production methods and innovation methods of various industries, which is the so-called fourth industrial revolution. In this journey, the definition of Internet enterprises will be reshaped, and the scope of industrial Internet enterprises or industrial Internet enterprises will be extended to all fields of social economy in the future. This means that Internet technology is an empowering carrier that will form a tidal wave of industrial revolution when combined with various industries, and the industrial Internet and consumer Internet will be opened up to truly realize a comprehensive digital transformation.

Shang Bing, chairman of the Internet Society, said the Internet industry should grasp the new opportunities brought by the rapid development of the digital economy and further fulfill its industry responsibilities. He made four suggestions:

First, consolidate the foundation and layout the future advantages. To vigorously promote the 5G, gigabit network and other new generation of information and communication infrastructure construction, ahead of the deployment of 6G and other new network technology research and development and industrial layout; accelerate the next-generation Internet, industrial Internet, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, data centers, content distribution networks and other construction deployment and application promotion, and promote the rapid development of application infrastructure.

Second, pioneering innovation and improving the quality of development. To enhance technological innovation capabilities, accelerate breakthroughs in key technologies such as high-end chips, network slicing, and basic software. Around the digital transformation of the real economy, accelerate technological innovation, business innovation and business model innovation, promote the transformation of achievements into market applications, promote the development of collaborative innovation in the industrial chain, accelerate the construction of competitive industrial clusters, and focus on enhancing the stability and competitiveness of the industrial chain supply chain.

Thirdly, we should put people first and eliminate the digital divide. To adhere to the people-centered development ideology, the courage to assume social responsibility, through universal service, rural revitalization, information accessibility construction and other special initiatives to reduce the digital divide in technology, equipment and concepts, so that hundreds of millions of people in sharing the fruits of Internet development have a greater sense of access, happiness and security.

Fourth, strengthen governance to ensure network security. We should attach great importance to network security and business compliance development, and form a network governance pattern with the collaboration of government, enterprises and industry organizations.
