5G encompasses the development of various key wireless communication technology standards. The development entails both technological advancement and social interaction. This paper analyzes 5G development and its significant shift from a strategy policy to a user-oriented development showing the coplay of technology and society in China. Based on this theory, relevant proposals are recommended for future technical development and industrial regulation. Also, to increase the throughput and spectrum efficiency, channel assignment and load balance are considered. A hybrid routing protocol TOHRP (tree-based and on-demand hybrid routing protocol) and a distributed channel assignment algorithm LBCA (Load Based Channel Assignment) in the multichannel environment are proposed and they solve the traditional problem of () waste of spectrum and () self-interference. The computer-simulated experiment shows that the algorithm improves the performance.
