Huawei & Beijing Normal University Build a 5G Smart Campus

Beijing Normal University grew from the Faculty of Education at the Imperial University of Peking, which was established in 1902. Numerous scholars have lectured at the university, including: Li Dazhao, Lu Xun, Liang Qichao, Qian Xuantong, Zhong Jingwen, Qi Gong, Wang Kunren, and Zhou Tingru.

As a cradle for cultivating top-level teaching talent in China, Beijing Normal University follows the motto, "Learn, so as to instruct others; Act, to serve as a model for all", and has been a leader in teacher cultivation, education sciences, and liberal Arts & Sciences within China.

Promoting smart education and smart campuses at Beijing Normal University

In recent years, the smart campus industry has been rapidly growing, as colleges and universities across the country seek to build smart campuses. In today's mobile Internet era, things are always changing fast. With this in mind, Beijing Normal University has once again taken the lead to adopt new technologies in education.

As part of the National Development and Reform Commission's 5G pilot program, China Mobile Group Beijing partnered with Huawei and Beijing Normal University to launch the University's first 5G base station at the university's Changping Campus on March 1.

This marks another milestone for China Mobile in its efforts to incubate 5G applications in vertical industries, following on from its exploration in areas such as the Connected Vehicles, UAVs, 4K HD video backhaul, and smart healthcare.

In co-taught classes, multi-channel, high-definition cameras can be deployed to transmit the audio and course materials to remote classrooms many miles away simultaneously through 5G networks.

However, in a classroom where AR or VR technologies are deployed, 4K videos are first recorded with high-resolution cameras, and then sent to recipients via 5G networks using special devices.

The application of 5G during campus patrols help us accurately identify strangers and visitors: First, images and videos of people on campus are collected in real time with 360-degree cameras. Then, cloud-based facial recognition technology checks the faces against those stored on the authorized database.

Huawei's 2.6GHz 64T64R 3D-MIMO devices support 2.6GHz with 160 MHz bandwidth. As the only 3D-MIMO devices in the industry that are able to support all frequency bands, they can be used to achieve flexible allocation of spectrum resources and deployment of 5G across all spectrum bands.

In 2019, Huawei will continue leading the launch of 32T32R 3D-MIMO devices. With 64 or 32 transmit elements, we aim to boost 5G's coverage and capacity and deliver the most cost-effective network solution.

Looking to the future, China Mobile Group Beijing will continue working with Huawei to explore 5G applications in the education industry, develop 5G-driven smart education, and deploy 5G macro stations across the Beijing Normal University campus. 5G-enabled smart education will make teaching simpler than even before!
