The 5G edge cloud deployed on the user side can shorten the network route and reduce network delay. Its highly reliable connection enables innovative medical applications, such as remote diagnosis and surgery, AI assistance, mobile medicine and surgical instruction.

Medical application systems can be quickly interconnected, with their data being calculated, stored, and managed flexibly as required.

The platform can significantly reduce the cost of medical informatisation by unifying cloud-based deployment of various medical application systems. With its open architecture,  the 5G medical edge cloud can provide various applications with standard interfaces and provide hospitals with integrated smart medical solutions to build a smart medical application ecosystem.

Nearly 100 Internet medical applications have been deployed on China Mobile’s 5G medical edge cloud, making it quite convenient for patients to access various medical services.

As strategic partners, ZTE and China Mobile (Chengdu) Industrial Research Institute have set up a joint 5G Innovation Lab where the two parties carry out in-depth cooperation in industry-dedicated network technologies and multi-access edge computing.The partners are exploring innovative applications in healthcare and other fields.

China Mobile’s 5G medical edge cloud will accelerate the large-scale applications of China Mobile’s new-generation 5G smart hospital solutions, and facilitate the industry development of medical informatisation.
