Harvesting Bountiful Seafood at a 5G Smart Marine Ranch

Harvesting Bountiful Seafood at a 5G Smart Marine Ranch

A place's cuisine is one of its most impressive and vivid labels, such as the tingly numbness of Sichuan food, or the spicy flavor of Guangxi. As a food lover, you cannot miss the variety of fresh seafood from the pristine sea of Weihai.

Want to eat fresh prawns, scallops, and oysters, as well as springy squids and crab roe all in one place? Come to Weihai! When it comes to seafood, the cuisine in Fujian and Guangdong features high-end seafood, like shark fins, Australian lobsters, and Pacific geoducks, while the people of Jiangsu and Zhejiang often cook seafood with wine and sugar. However, people in Weihai prefer to only slightly cook their seafood, in order to maintain its freshness. With such simple recipes and fresh ingredients, you can easily cook and enjoy delicious seafood in Weihai.

Shandong's first 5G marine ranch was recently built in Rongcheng's Ailun Bay. This project, which features advanced intelligence, can be considered a model project, as it perfectly aligns with the economic characteristics of Weihai and Shandong.

China Mobile Weihai has customized a panoramic monitoring system that depends on 5G networks, which feature high speed, low latency, high reliability, and wide coverage, for the marine ranch.

Staff at the smart ranch have described it as secure, clear, convenient, and efficient. "In the past, the best way to check the growth of aquatic products was to dive under the sea and observe it with your own eyes. Now, with the underwater 5G camera system, aquaculture operators can conveniently use mobile phones to monitor the growth of aquatic products from their office, home, or anywhere. The observation distance can be up to 10 meters, depending on the actual underwater conditions."

The ranch's offshore platforms and aquiculture areas are monitored 24/7 by panoramic HD cameras that are connected through high-speed 5G mobile networks. An employee of China Mobile Rongcheng said, "Building base stations is key to deploying communications networks, regardless of whether they are 4G or 5G. Therefore, we have completed many preparation tasks to facilitate the construction of 5G base stations and networks in the Ailun Bay marine ranch. Those tasks include surveys and designs, planning, and the optimization of transmission and access networks. During our 5G tests, we recorded network speeds of up to 1Gbit/s, and latency as low as 1 millisecond."
