Beijing’s new airport showcasing 5G technology

ISLAMABAD, Sep 25 (APP):Beijing Daxing International Airport, opened by Chinese President Xi Jinping Wednesday morning, will become a key node for aviation in northern China and across Asia.

The 5G-based smart travel system co-developed by Huawei and China Unicom with base stations installed throughout the sprawling terminal will promise a connection speed of 1.2 Gbit per second, about 100 times faster than the current 4G system, according the South China Morning Post.

5G-enabled services, such as facial recognition for check-in and security, personalised airport experience through the airline’s smart app and paperless luggage services, are part of the first wave of new 5G enabled smart air travel services aimed at improving passenger experience at airports.
