Operators' cold admission Beijing subway new line meets old problems

in the past half month, which seemed calm, the three major domestic operators have undergone subtle changes in the admission of Beijing subway new line

on December 30 last year, four new lines of Beijing subway were opened to traffic, but passengers found that the new lines did not cover signals throughout the whole process. For a time, the old problems between the subway and operators, such as how to enter and who enters first, were put on the table again

in the recent field investigation, it is found that Beijing Unicom has actually quietly entered the site. These four new lines are line 6, the southern end of line 8, the northern section of line 9 and the second phase of line 10. At present, Beijing Unicom 2G and 3G signals have been fully covered; Beijing Telecom only has 3G signal in the south section of line 8; However, Beijing Mobile is still in the state of no signal in the whole process

it's cold again when entering the site

according to the news of Beijing Metro's previous media interview, the signals of Beijing Mobile and Beijing Telecom have not entered the site yet, and they are still negotiating with operators. However, according to a person familiar with the matter in Beijing Metro, it is necessary to ensure the safe opening of the new fourth line of Beijing Metro on December 30, 2012. In order to complete this military order, we must first complete the work closely related to the operation safety of the new line, and the next step is to improve the service

when asked about the mobilization time of the operators, the staff member affirmed that when all the commissioning work of our technical department is completed, the operators will be arranged to enter the site. It is estimated that it will be about half a month. However, when pressed whether Beijing Unicom had been arranged to enter first, the staff member declined to disclose

when asked the operators the same question, the relevant staff of Beijing Mobile said that the communication network construction in the subway should largely comply with the needs and instructions of the subway company, and they did not know whether Beijing Unicom had entered first

at the same time, the relevant staff of Beijing Unicom only told that, just as the subway company publicly said, our signals have been covered. Beijing Telecom simply said that it had not made progress

According to the interview results, the relevant industry analysts said that the subway signal problem has a long history, and its focus is the entrance fee negotiated between the operators and the subway company

for a long time, operators who want to enter the subway to build and debug communication equipment and open signals need to pay high entrance fees. With the rapid development of the mobile Internet economy and the need for cross-border transformation of operators, who can get the ticket first, the metallographic polishing machine is an indispensable machine in the process of metallographic sample preparation, and who will seize the bridgehead of the subway, an important military place. For this reason, the competition among the three major domestic operators has become increasingly fierce. As far as the subway is concerned, we also hope to earn high profits through the mode of laying networks in advance and leasing to operators in the later stage

in this regard, experts are worried that this has caused a serious waste of resources, resulting in repeated construction and reduced network utilization of backbone and telecommunications infrastructure that could have been jointly built and shared. Since the joint construction and sharing of telecommunications infrastructure was put forward in the middle and late 2008, it has gone through the start-up period and the running in period, and has developed to the improvement period. However, in the development process, there are still some enterprises that lack awareness, delay time, and buck passing. The signal coverage of the new fourth line of Beijing subway is also a side refraction of this

some industry experts pointed out that the subway, residential quarters, office buildings and other places obviously belong to the category of public service places, and their telecommunications infrastructure is different from other areas. On the one hand, relevant government departments need to play a regulatory role to guide and coordinate; On the other hand, the three major operators need to make joint efforts to negotiate and negotiate with the Metro before they can make progress

for operators, it is not that operators do not need to compete, but that fierce competition between three parties can be changed into moderate competition between two companies, or competition can be introduced by sections. Zeng Jianqiu, a professor at the school of economics and management of Beijing University of Posts and telecommunications, expressed his views on this. It is in line with the needs of consumers to properly carry out competition in public areas where consumers have demand and high requirements for communication signals, such as residential areas and subways

in fact, as early as October 2008, the Beijing Municipal Communications Administration actively promoted the co construction and sharing of telecommunications infrastructure in Beijing in accordance with the unified deployment of the Ministry of industry and information technology. At the end of 2010, after the opening of five Beijing metro lines, including Fangshan line, Changping line phase I, line 15 phase I, Yizhuang line and Daxing line, the three operators jointly set up a coordination group to work closely with the subway company on signal coverage under the leadership of Beijing Communications Administration

in 2011, the Beijing Municipal Communications Administration organized and coordinated three operators to sign the agreement on the co construction and sharing lease of telecommunications infrastructure (tower and base station) and the agreement on the co construction and sharing maintenance of telecommunications infrastructure (tower and base station) on the basis of the co construction and sharing framework agreement

so far, Beijing has taken the co construction of subway coverage system as the focus and breakthrough of Co Construction in key areas. In order to strengthen the coverage of subway communication signals in Beijing, the three major telecom operators in Beijing have gradually formed a joint negotiation mode led by one company and participated by other companies in the second half of 2011 to promote the co construction and sharing of subway coverage system through repurchase or entrusted co construction investment mode

according to the agreement, telecom operators will pay a certain fee to the subway company every year according to the number of base stations in the whole line of the subway, that is, the entrance fee. In order to avoid repeated construction and unnecessary rework after construction, the Beijing municipal government requires that the communication coverage of communication, radio and television and government affairs departments should be completed simultaneously for the subsequent new subway projects in Beijing

make profits on the basis of ensuring the public interest

so in terms of the admission of the new fourth line of Beijing subway, the three operators have different admission orders. Insiders speculate that the three operators may not reach an agreement before admission. However, an insider of Beijing Mobile, who asked not to be named, said that in fact, this admission is a clich é. The staff of our three (operators) are very familiar with it, and they also recognize the model of one company taking the lead and three companies jointly negotiating with the subway. At present, it can only be revealed that it is only a matter of time before mobile enters the market sooner or later

some experts pointed out that, first of all, the subway belongs to the category of public services, and the signal must be covered; Secondly, the practice of using public service construction to earn fees has been criticized by the industry. At the same time, the guidance and supervision of the relevant departments have not been implemented yet. It is impossible to reach a final agreement by only relying on the joint progress and withdrawal of three operators, and it also needs the active coordination of relevant departments; Third, the subway can charge a certain cost in the field of public services, but it is not advisable to make a profit

in this regard, Fu Liang, an industry analyst, believes that in China, the international practice of charging admission fees on which the subway relies, operators in some countries and regions are private property rights and pure profit-making institutions. How does China's steel plate transportation do mechanical testing? The business is a state-owned enterprise, which bears the public communication interests of the whole society to a large extent, and should not be measured entirely by commercial interests. If it is necessary to make profits, it should also be carried out on the basis of ensuring the public interest

however, it is too early to conclude that the new mode of co construction and sharing of operators has not been implemented in the new fourth line. Due to the involvement of commercial transportation and charging, the internal negotiation information between some operators and the progress of the next related work of the Metro Company are not known to the outside world at present. From the perspective of public service and resource conservation, it is beneficial for all parties to earnestly implement the co construction and sharing agreement with the operators, reach a united front before entering the site, and carry out appropriate competition after entering the site.
