GSMA's latest research shows that 4G investment boosts the European economy

the mobile industry has made an annual contribution to the European economy of more than 500billion euros

according to the latest research released by GSMA (GMS Association), as mobile operators increase their investment in 4G networks and services, the contribution of mobile industry to the European economy is bound to increase in the next five years. The latest report, entitled "the mobile Economy: Europe 2015", predicts that as the regional market benefits from the productivity and work efficiency improvement brought about by the popularity of new mobile technologies such as machine to machine (M2M) communication, the contribution of the industry to European gross domestic product (GDP) will increase from 500billion euros in 2014 to 600billion euros by 2020. According to the report, by 2020, the continuous investment of mobile operators in 4G network quality and aimed at covering the whole Europe will make 4G network account for 60% of the mobile connections in the mainland, while it currently accounts for only 20%

Alex Sinclair, acting director general and chief technology officer of GSMA, said: Although macroeconomic and regulatory conditions have been challenged, European mobile operators have still invested heavily in 4G in the past few years. We expect that in the remaining years of this decade, the investment of mobile operators in 4G deployment, capacity and spectrum will continue. At present, mobile users in Europe enjoy download speeds far exceeding the global average, and will take advantage of a series of innovative services that may be generated by the next generation of networks and devices

4g promotes the recovery of data volume and income level

Europe is a highly mature region in the mobile field, and the user penetration rate is high. By the end of 2015, Europe will have 430million unique mobile subscribers, equivalent to 79% of the total population in the region. This makes Europe the region with the highest mobile penetration rate in the world, which is nearly 10 percentage points higher than that in North America. Therefore, the future user growth space in the region is very limited: it is estimated that by 2020, the number of unique mobile users in Europe will reach 450million, equivalent to 81% of the expected population in the region at that time Mechanical properties, also known as mechanical properties

the expansion of 4G coverage and the increasing popularity of intelligence will lead to the migration of 4G networks. At the beginning of 2015, the coverage of 4G network covered more than 80% of the population in Europe, which is expected to exceed 95% by 2020. Factors that improve the popularity of 4G devices include the continuous expansion of the coverage of places that do not pay attention to the maintenance of Jinan gold testing tensile machine, the provision of more available devices at a broader price, and the increased use of music and video streaming media services. It is estimated that by 2020, intelligence will account for 76% of mobile connections in Europe, up from 60% this year

in addition, the expansion of 4G coverage and the more adoption of 4G supporting devices will also increase the use of mobile data. According to Cisco, 3 the average monthly data usage in Western Europe will increase from less than 1GB per month in 2014 to nearly 6GB in 2019, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 45%. Many European operators said in the report that at present, the amount of data used by 4G customers is more than twice that of 3G users. According to this report, the revenue of mobile data services will also help many operators regain and obtain accurate data to achieve service revenue growth after a period of negative growth

mobile brings economic growth to Europe as a whole and promotes innovation.

the European mobile industry created 500 billion euros last year, equivalent to 3.2% of the region's GDP. 4. The industry has also directly or indirectly supported 3.8 million jobs and contributed about 84 billion euros in various forms of taxation. In addition to tax contributions, mobile operators will also contribute to public funds through spectrum fees. For example, in 2014, the allocation of spectrum licenses in Greece, Hungary and Estonia created a total of about 700million euros of public funds for their respective governments

mobile industry is a leading digital innovation in Europe, especially in the fields of mobile commerce, intelligent manufacturing, smart home and smart health. Mobile networks will also provide a platform for IOT opportunities: by 2020, the number of cellular M2M connections in Europe is expected to increase from 68million this year to 182million, with a compound annual growth rate of 22%. In addition, the region is also increasingly interested in low-power wide area (lpwa) solutions, which will play an important role in connecting a series of IOT devices

however, one of the main challenges facing the European mobile industry is its ability to expand across the continent, because the national regulatory and legal environment in the continent is complex and different. The European Union's proposal to establish a European digital single market aims to reduce such obstacles to innovation, while using digital services and networks to drive future economic growth

sinclair added: transforming Europe into a world leading digital economy requires a wide range of regulatory reforms, encourages investment in timeless infrastructure, and solves the current scheme in spectrum and other fields. Start with the test, take 1 standard weight and hang it lightly on the upper fixture connection base, record the computer display force value, and calculate the difference with the standard weight, and the error should not exceed 1%. The construction of a digital single market will provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the establishment of a new regulatory framework, thus providing support for digital participating enterprises, services and business models in the new era based on advanced mobile broadband connections
