Do you want secure on-line finance anytime anywhere? Do you want to protect the safety of your house via Internet of Things? Do you want to manage your health with wearables? If the answers are "Yes", you cannot miss PT/EXPO COMM CHINA 2014.
On September 23rd, PT/EXPO COMM CHINA 2014 will unveil itself in Beijing China International Exhibition Center. With a big stage of 45,000 m2, more than 500 global giants will lead you "into the future" such as China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom, Potevio, Datang Telecom, FiberHome Technologies, ZTE, Huawei, NEC, NOKIA, Changfei, Hengtong, UNION VOOLE, Samsung, Sony, CNTV, Tencent, Sina, Netease, Ali Telecom, FunTalk, Telling, Soshare Mobile, Suning Mobile, Gome.com.cn and 35.com.
New themes getting closer to you
Science and technology are developing by leaps and bounds. The Expo abandons out-of-date ideas and absorbs new concepts. It will launch two thematic areas, i.e. "Smart Life Pavilion" and "Virtual Operator Pavilion", which will push new concepts closer to you.
Recently, China Telecom partnered with FiberHome to form the smart home industrial alliance, while Huawei and other companies initiated the smart home entertainment alliance. Although they have different priorities, both focus on establishing a "One Cloud and Multiple Screens" smart entertainment ecosystem, which will enable users to pay for water and electricity bills, check traffic violation, and enjoy cloud video, cloud games and cloud education at home.
Under the evolution of 4G, cloud computing and big data technologies, ZTE thinks SMART2.0 has come. Smart phones, home appliances and smart wearables will understand human demands gradually, which will bring about values beyond our expectation. China Mobile launched In-Sim card targeting at the Internet of Things, so that consumers could easily enjoy smart healthcare, Internet of Vehicles and NFC payment.
We all have a vision for smart life. Virtual operators are also trying to have a share of the pie. The Expo especially creates "170 Virtual Operator Pavilion" with the theme of "Debut, Convergence and Win-win Cooperation — Virtual Operators at your Side". The pavilion covers 5,000 m2. Brands will no longer compete on price, but rather on differentiation. Various value-added services such as "Smart Mobile Health", "Smart Transportation" and "Smart Community" are launched for the practical benefits of consumers.
Incumbents revitalize on their accumulated strengths
2014 marks the very first year for 4G. The reform in the telecom sector is speeding up. While basic telecom services are reaching the ceiling, incumbents in the market are actively exploring new industries such as mobile Internet, Internet of Things, optical communications and information security, which are taking effect.
Take time-honored Potevio for example, with innovation, it has transformed itself from a traditional manufacturer to an integrated information service provider. To our knowledge, Potevio’s self-developed TD-LTE4G system has integrated functions such as communications, broadcasting and visualized emergency command and control, which has laid out its smart city blueprint for regions like Yinchuan.
Hall 4 is "Special Pavilion for Optical Communications and Tests". Here we could experience the optical network cities strategies designed by the three operators and learn more about the latest progress of Broadband China. Secure and fast optical communications could eliminate blind areas for mines and airplanes, and prevent the information leakage in areas like military affairs, national security and smart home. With the further enhancements of skills, we would be capable of embracing more possibilities in our life.
Industry insiders have pointed out that PT/EXPO COMM CHINA co-organized by MIIT and CCPIT is a leading Gala Event in APAC. It has attracted outstanding companies from more than ten countries and regions including the mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Canada, UK, Finland, Germany, Israel, Japan, Korea, Sweden and US, whose new releases will define the trends of the industry to a large extent.
