5G+ drones, how can the drone fly so high?

As a new type of technology product, drones are used more and more in our lives. From the beginning of the entertainment flight show to aerial photography, logistics, inspection, and other fields, we can see the drone. Today, the drone industry is growing rapidly, making it increasingly demanding mobile communication networks. For this reason, many people predict that drones will be one of the first major industries for 5G networks.

Nowadays, 5G commercial licenses have been officially issued, and the real commercial use of 5G networks has also been put on the agenda. However, why do drones need 5G networks? What changes does the 5G network bring to the drone industry? How high can 5G fly the drones?

The drone market enters a transition period, and industrial-grade drones are favored by capital.

The UAV market can generally be divided into consumer-grade UAVs and industry-class UAVs. At present, consumer-grade UAVs have been monopolized by Dajiang, and the industry-level UAV market has not yet formed a real monopoly. Consumer-grade drones have no signs of returning to life since entering the capital winter in 2016. Industry-class drones are more favored by capital.

At present, industrial-grade UAVs can be applied to many industries, such as logistics, inspection, security and other vertical industries. iResearch predicts that by 2025, the domestic drone market will reach a total of 75 billion. Among them, the industry applies about 20 billion agricultural and forestry plant protection, the security market is about 15 billion, the power inspection is about 5 billion, and the consumer market for aerial entertainment is 30 billion.

Everyone is optimistic about the prospects of industrial-grade UAVs, but UAVs still have problems such as weak legal supervision, inadequate research and application, security problems and difficult breakthroughs in technology. However, the network problem is the key link that restricts its development. The 4G network has room for improvement in terms of bandwidth, delay, and interference coordination. First of all, in terms of signal interference, the base station of the flight path of the drone mainly relies on ground cover construction, and the flight height of the drone is not in the range of the main lobe of the ground station antenna. Therefore, the air signal is poor and there is no primary coverage cell. In the end, the downlink interference of the base station is large, and some areas even have the problem of short-line loss.
