Beijing State-owned Assets Management Company and China United Network Communications Group signed a strategic cooperation agreement over such a process on Thursday.

According to the agreement, the two sides will carry out in-depth cooperation in such fields as venue communication network construction and intelligent venue construction to jointly build 5G intelligent venues.

The aim is to provide a high-quality experience for athletes, spectators and organizers. 

Vice President of Beijing State-owned Assets Management Wu Xiaonan said that based on the high speed and low latency of 5G technology, more usage scenarios will be implemented. 

Also, for athletes and journalists, 5G technology can facilitate more and faster data acquisition and transmission, which is helpful for broadcasting live action and for the real-time transmission of competition data.
