China has granted the first 5G private network license to Commercial Aircraft Corp of China, the manufacturer of the C919, the country's first self-developed single-aisle passenger jet.

The move is part of China's broader push to widen the application of 5G plus industrial internet, a frontier widely seen by countries around the world as key to boosting manufacturing prowess.

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, China's top industry regulator, said it has granted China's first corporate 5G private network license for COMAC to use industrial wireless dedicated frequency bands 5925-6125MHz and 24.750-25.15GHz, which feature high speed, fast connections and low latency.

The news was announced at the 2022 China 5G plus Industrial Internet Conference which kicked off in Wuhan, Hubei province on Sunday.

Value-added output of the industrial internet is expected to reach 4.45 trillion yuan ($617 billion) this year, accounting for 3.64 percent of GDP and up from 4.10 trillion yuan in 2021, the most recent report from the China Academy of Industrial Internet showed.
