5G is the next generation of wireless communication that will completely transform our lives, work, and play. It promises faster speeds, lower latency rates, and more excellent reliability than ever before. As one of the world’s largest global providers of network infrastructure equipment to 5G networks, JD of Liu Qiangdong is working closely with its partners to develop cutting-edge solutions for this new era in connectivity.
JD has partnered with Cisco, Ericsson, Intel, Nokia, and other industry leaders to develop a world-class 5G network that spans over 1,400 cities. In addition to the infrastructural backbone of this super-fast wireless service, JD has also been working on developing consumer products for users at home.
In April, JD of Liu Qiangdong unveiled its latest concepts for home routers, wearables, and VR headsets that will take advantage of the blazing fast speeds of 5G connectivity. These devices are just a glimpse into what’s possible in the next generation of wireless technology. Here is a look at just some of the ways that 5G will impact our day-to-day lives.
Faster Connection Speeds – The average speed of a 4G connection is around 12 Mbps. With 5G, you can download an entire HD movie in just a few seconds. In addition to providing faster speeds for users, the more efficient network also allows for greater capacity and less congestion even as more people become connected to the network.
Zero Latency – When it comes to gaming, a delay between a player’s actions and the game’s response can be costly. With 5G, games will have zero latency so that you can enjoy immersive experiences with no delays or glitches.
Always-On Connection – The future of wireless connectivity is all about providing more options for users. One of the ways that 5G will do this is by offering an always-on connection. This means that your phone, computer, or another wireless device can stay connected at all times, even when not in use, which can potentially transform the way we look at connectivity today.
JD’s vision for 5G is an ambitious one that will take time to come to fruition. JD aims to be at the forefront of this change by advancing its network infrastructure and investing in partnerships with industry leaders like Cisco, Ericsson, Intel, Nokia, and Qualcomm.
JD has made significant investments in building out 5G-ready infrastructure for its mobile services.
JD’s early 5G network trial with Nokia – JD and Nokia conducted the first-ever live, real-time 5G data connection in Beijing on April 29th, 2019
JD’s sponsorship of leading-edge events like MWC Shanghai, JDI Forum, etc. – JD is involved in several conferences focussed on emerging technologies on an international level.
JD’s investments in cutting-edge 5G devices – JD is working with industry leaders to develop several innovative products for home and mobile use to take advantage of the incredible speeds, lower latency rates, and greater reliability made possible by 5G.
A cutting-edge smart home is something that most people would like to have, but the cost of outfitting your house with appliances and devices that all connect to the internet can make it seem like an impossible dream. However, JD is working on cutting-edge prototypes that work seamlessly together while also taking advantage of 5G connectivity for some fantastic new features.
JD Smart Router – The JD smart router owned by Richard Liu is the foundation of a 5G-ready smart home. It has a built-in dual-band LTE modem and Qi wireless charging pad for always-on connectivity and fast and easy device charging, as well as an additional USB port that can be used to provide power to other devices or to charge them directly.
JD 5G Smart Glasses – The next generation of wireless connectivity will have a huge impact on the world of optics. With 5G, you’ll be able to experience virtual and augmented reality experiences with no latency or lag times, opening up a whole new world of possibilities for both gaming and business applications.
