5G is the main development direction of the new generation of information and communication technology, which will bring a huge market for lithium battery energy storage communication base stations, and 48V lithium batteries as a basic component of the communication backup power supply module will achieve great development. Many companies in the lithium battery industry in China have frequently increased their investment in the field of lithium batteries, and the competition for backup power for mobile communication base stations has become increasingly fierce.
The mobile communication technology represented by 5G is being closely integrated with AI and big data, opening a new era of interconnection of all things, and will become the most important technological direction in the next decade. At present, governments, operators and the entire industry chain are gearing up for a big fight.
The communications energy storage market is regarded by lithium battery manufacturers as a new blue ocean for current investment. Relevant agencies predict that by 2025, the number of communication towers will increase to 13 million, which will basically achieve 5G network coverage in major cities around the world. That proves that the demand for base station lithium batteries must increase significantly.
China Tower has a huge demand for energy storage lithium batteries. Many people in the lithium battery industry believe that the arrival of the 5G era means that operators will upgrade and transform national communication base stations. Supporting lithium batteries in base station systems has become a general trend in recent years. Communication base station energy storage market The fire of lithium batteries will be ignited again. With the advent of the 5G network era, the energy storage of communication base stations has accelerated the igniting of the 48V lithium battery power supply market.
5G communication base stations are to establish micro base stations in areas with weak signals, blind areas, and holes, so as to relieve network burden and network congestion to achieve extreme speed experience. At present, 4G antenna array units generally do not exceed 8. 5G uses large-scale antenna array technology. Will reach 128 or more.
Therefore, 4G base station antennas generally have 3 antennas, each with 80 boards, and 5G will use 6-12 antennas, each with about 150; because there are more 5G channels, the area and number of layers of each PCB will also increase, and the size Increased from 15 square centimeters to 35 square centimeters.
So far, lithium batteries have been widely used in many applications, including telecommunications, national grid and other network systems. These network power applications have higher standards for batteries: higher energy density, more compact size, longer service time, easier maintenance, higher high temperature stability, lighter weight and higher reliability.
At present, the power supply mode of the communication equipment room adopts a 48V lithium battery power supply system, and all equipment uses a ready-made 48V power supply. This power supply system is the safest, most reliable, most economical and most reasonable solution. It is the development trend of backup power supply technology for small and medium-sized and harsh environment on-site backup power supplies. 48V lithium-ion batteries will gradually become the first choice for high-end backup power solutions.
Many people in the lithium battery industry believe that the arrival of the 5G era means that telecom operators in various countries will upgrade their communication base stations. It is a general trend in recent years to support lithium batteries in base station systems. The energy storage market for communication base stations will once again ignite the fire of lithium batteries.
BSLBATT 48V lithium battery power supply for communication is a new generation of special power products designed for uninterrupted AC power supply systems such as communication base stations and data rooms. It adopts advanced DSP digital control technology and high-frequency switch technology. In addition to the functions of double conversion online, zero conversion, fail-bypass, etc., it also adds unattended functions and can be equipped with a new type of lithium iron phosphate battery.
As a representative of new energy sources, lithium iron phosphate batteries have a small size, long life, good high-temperature performance, and are easy to meet the requirements of fast playback points.
5G communication upgrade brings opportunities to 48V lithium batteries
The advent of the 5G network era will reposition the lithium battery market for communication base stations. Up to now, China Mobile has launched the industry's first 3.5GHz band 5G prototype base station, FlexRAN platform and other latest research results of multiple 5G networks, and its 5G joint innovation centers have increased from the original 11 to 42. In addition, Huawei, Ericsson, Intel, Nokia and other mobile terminals have also released 5G-related solutions or products.
Frequent policies and market actions signal that the 5G era is approaching. Many lithium battery companies have begun to rekindle confidence in the communications energy storage market. Insiders conservatively predict that this round of new technology upgrades will bring a 1 billion yuan market scale to lithium batteries.
The advent of 5G networks has brought two great benefits to lithium battery companies: First, regardless of whether operators choose to upgrade or build new base stations, this is a new round of market opportunities for lithium battery companies; second, operators are right. The technical requirements and standard thresholds for lithium batteries have increased, and the "low quality and low price" situation is expected to end, and the market will gradually return to a normal and rational track. It has even been proposed that small and medium-sized data centers will become the next deployment territory for lithium batteries in communication base stations.
It can be seen that how to get rid of the shackles of the price war and lead the communication base station lithium battery to a healthy future is the focus of lithium battery energy storage companies. In the future, especially after upgrading 5G, lithium battery companies will no longer focus solely on communication base stations, but how communication networks evolve and whether customer targets will change. These two cores are the key to determining the fate of lithium batteries in the communications field.
As the demand for 5G communication base stations grows, the market for lithium battery energy storage will be very impressive in the future. However, due to the fierce competition in the communication base station market and the intensified price war, corporate profits are meager. There are not too many power supply and magnetic parts companies that can eat this cake. Relevant lithium battery energy storage companies still need to continuously strengthen the level of technology research and development, and greatly increase their competitiveness in the market.
The huge network data traffic in the 5G era will greatly stimulate the construction needs of operators' data centers. Industry insiders believe that the 48V lithium battery's own performance advantages fully meet the needs of the 5G era, combined with the continuous decline in costs and technological progress, it has great potential for development in the field of energy storage.
