The Beijing Ministry of Technology reports. The infrastructure allows devices not to go through the 4G network
China will assist telecom operators to expand the coverage and capacity of the standalone 5G (SA) network, which allows enabled devices to connect only to repeaters for the new generation network (without going through 4G). The Ministry of Industry and Information Technologies of Beijing has announced this.

Standalone 5G, the “true” new generation network with 5G infrastructure at its core, takes full advantage of the new mobile channels with high transmission capacity, low latency communications, the massive use of the Internet of Things technology and network segmentation.
Similarly, the Chinese ministry said, telecommunications companies should further optimize the operational processes of equipment procurement, design, distribution and construction of infrastructures, taking advantage of the opportunities offered by this revitalization period to mitigate the impact of the epidemic on the economy.
