Leading the World in Mobile IoT


26-27 June: 09:00 – 17:00 | 28 June: 09:00 – 16:00
Hall E7, 4YFN, Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC)

With over 430,000 engineering graduates – more than the US and India combined[1] – and as the fastest growing nation for software developers globally[2], China has established itself as an exciting destination for leading edge hardware engineers and software developers. Thriving tech hubs like Beijing, Hangzhou, Shanghai and Shenzhen combined with exponentially increasing salaries in the industry and ongoing venture capital investments[3] are making China a dynamic and fast-moving place to work that keeps raising the bar in the international playing field of technological innovation.

A rapidly expanding IoT is set to strengthen the country’s leading position in technological prowess and fuel its already vibrant developer ecosystem further. With NB-IoT networks readily available by all three major mobile operators, and LTE-M networks currently being trialled, the IoT market in China provides immense potential for developers. These mobile networks offer cost effective connectivity for low power devices with battery lives measured in years that are required to operate in hard to reach locations, often beyond power sources.

At Connected China at MWC 2019 Shanghai, aspiring start-ups are demonstrating how they have leveraged this thriving developer environment that facilitates continuous progress and innovation.

Nine companies are showcasing IoT products and solutions that use low power wide area (LPWA) Mobile IoT technologies, also known as LTE-M and NB-IoT. Focusing on three key vertical markets of the IoT, Smart Industry, Smart Cities and Smart Home, Connected China puts the country’s technological leadership centre stage and shows why China is the place to be for dynamic and eager developers and engineers.


Shanghai Chenghan, China Mobile Connected Faces
Connecting faces for healthier skin: the Nbeauty 5G Skin Robot collects information about skin features in real-time and, using Artificial Intelligence, correctly diagnoses conditions and suggests treatments accordingly. Used by hundreds of Chinese medical and aesthetic institutions, and with over 10,000 user experience reports, the skin robot demonstrably replenishes and restores smooth, healthy skin, reduces wrinkles, prevents whelks, and even improves sleep. With NB-IoT technology at its core, the skin robot uses very little data and keeps cost at a minimum with only ¥20 RMB (approx. £2.30) spent in up to a month.
Guangdong Bida Security System, China Mobile Smart Doorlock
The NB-IoT smart doorlock is a convenient and easy to use solution to manage secure access to homes, hotels, offices and other complexes. The door can be unlocked with fingerprint, password, card, mechanical key or the app, and remote key sharing allows owners to authorise and control access for friends and family members. Using NB-IoT means the smart doorlock is always reliable and securely connected, and owners can not only monitor access to their homes anywhere and anytime, but will also receive a timely alarm in case of unauthorised access.
Oviphone Technology Safeguarding Loved Ones: Pet Tracker and Wearable Devices
Over 30,000 pet trackers and wearable devices have been deployed to safeguard young children, the elderly and even pets. While the pet tracker allows owners to check the location of their dog or cat anywhere and anytime, sending alerts when the animal leaves a geo-fenced area, the wearable devices also monitor heart rate and blood pressure. NB-IoT provides family members, carers and pet owners with a reliable and cost efficient solution that uses low data rates, supports long battery lives and operates in remote and hard to reach locations, giving peace of mind that loved ones are safe.



China Unicom, Linkor InfoTech Industrial Equipment Rapid Access and Data Analysis
The rapid access and data analysis system for industrial equipment, based on LTE-M, NB-IoT and 4G, combines real-time data monitoring with historical data for advanced analytics, enabling predictive maintenance and the fast interworking of industrial equipment, leading to reduced equipment failure and greater production efficiency. Sensors collect a wide variety of data, including, for example, status data on processing, cooling and lubrication, power and speed of the main shaft, voltage, temperature and humidity. LTE-M and NB-IoT provide reliable network connectivity and prevent data congestion, making it the preferred choice for industrial solutions.
Ericsson, China Mobile Ericsson Nanjing Panda Smart Factory – Lean Production Immediate Communications with Mobile IoT
Working together with China Mobile, as a pilot in the industrial market for cellular technology, Ericsson Nanjing Panda Smart Factory has developed several use cases including smart screwdrivers maintenance, passive critical asset monitoring, streamlining the Andon system, environmental monitoring, and more. The wireless Andon system is crucial for lean production by providing immediate communication directly to the appropriate engineer from the factory line, reducing lead-time for problem solving. With this wireless solution, powered by LTE-M and NB-IoT, the factory can enable flexible production lines, configured on-demand and with easy data collection, analysis, and optimisation.
Sino-Telecom, Huawei Gas Sensing for Industrial IoT
This NB-IoT powered solution facilitates the real-time monitoring of flammable and explosive gases, pressure and flow rate in gas pipelines, and overall air quality. The prompt detection of faults with industrial equipment and the presence of harmful gases enable companies to not only improve operational efficiencies, but also to take countermeasures in a timely manner to ensure the health and safety of workers and citizens in close vicinity. Using NB-IoT ensures very long battery lives for the monitoring equipment, leading to reduced management and maintenance cost, and reliable coverage in hard to reach locations, making NB-IoT the preferred technology for gas sensors that are installed in pipelines deep inside industrial factories.



Sunsea AIoT Technology, China Telecom Smart AIoT City
The planned Smart AIoT City project sees the installation of 500,000 NB-IoT sensors covering 37 km² in the Jing’an District, turning the area into a truly smart community. The devices will range from manhole covers and fire hydrant water pressure sensors to gas and smoke detectors to numerous environmental sensors. An integrated platform will centralise all data and drive intelligent analysis and improvements around urban traffic management, healthcare, environmental monitoring, regulation of public facilities, community safety management, and more.
Suntront Tech, China Unicom Smarter Cities with Smart Metering
This NB-IoT smart meter solution combines the IoT with big data, making energy management more intelligent. NB-IoT supports battery lives measured in years and provides improved and reliable coverage in hard to reach locations, such as underground and deep inside buildings, making it the preferred low power technology for smart metering. With over 25,000 NB-IoT gas and water meters deployed, Suntront Tech provides consumers and business with cost savings and a convenient lifestyle, while increasing efficiencies for utility companies.
Wuhan Turbo Technologies, China Mobile Intelligent Fire Alarm
With over 100,000 commercially deployed NB-IoT devices, including fire alarms, temperature sensors, smoke and gas detectors, this intelligent fire alarm solution is saving lives across China. NB-IoT allows for large-scale deployments of low cost IoT devices with long battery lives and reliable connectivity, leading to low maintenance requirements of the devices. The solution monitors temperature, smoke and flammable gas, as well as state of the equipment, such as battery life and tampering, to ensure the safety of consumers in case of a fire. The fire protection platform is used to manage the deployment of equipment and fire fighters, track their location and disseminate information to relevant personnel in real time.
