UNISOC: MWC2022 Let us connect the world from the present towards the future.

Tuesday 8 Mar 2022 | Member Press Release |

MWC2022, one of the important events in the domain of science and technology communication, was held in Barcelona from February 28 to March 3. Themed with “Connectivity Unleashed”, MWC2022 mainly focuses on aspects such as 5G, cloud, AI and IoT, displays the latest achievement in the mobile communication industry, and discusses the path-forward for future technical development. As a member of theGSMA(sponsor for MWC Barcelona 2022), UNISOC (Shanghai) Technologies Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “UNISOC”) has been also practicing the theme of “Connectivity Unleashed”, constantly making efforts in 5G, IoT and other fields to build an intelligent IoT world.

The fundamental goal of the scientific and technological development is to serve mankind and help mankind live a better life. For instance, aircraft, automobiles and other means of transportation can help mankind solve the problem of long-distance migration; and the medical development enables mankind to fight against diseases; while the development of communication industry empowers mankind to achieve the connectivity and information transmission among people themselves and between people and the world.

As one of the world’s leading suppliers of communication chips, the essential value that UNISOC cherishes the most is to enable connections and provide intelligent services for individuals and society.

  • Helping more people step into the world of mobile Internet

According to the latest report released by WeAreSocial and Hootsuite, as of  February, 2022, the number of global mobile phone users amounted to 5.31 billion, equivalent to 67.1% of the world’s total population. This means as of today, about 2.26 billion people around the world still do not have access to the mobile Internet.

UNISOC is always committed to helping more people gain access to smart terminals and connect with the world. Now, UNISOC chip products have been marketed in 128 countries and regions around the world, helping 400 million people access the mobile Internet through smart phones. Globally, there is one UNISOC chip in every four cellphones and one UNISOC chip in every 10 smart phones

In Africa, UNISOC has worked closely together with its partners and have developed the smart phones specifically for African users, as part of the effort to help Africa move towards the digital era; In India, UNISOC has enabled 25 million Indian consumers to gain access to the mobile Internet; In Thailand, UNISOC and Thai local brands jointly developed cellphones with mobile payment function to help millions of consumers enjoy the convenience brought by the service; In Indonesia, by online learning via tablet products, UNISOC helped 300,000 students make the remote online education possible.

In China, according to the latest data from the National Bureau of Statistics, there are 264 million people aged 60 and above, accounting for 18.7% of the country’s total population, and 190 million people aged 65 and above, accounting for 13.5%. The development of science and technology has brought people a rich and colorful digital life, where various demands such as entertainment, travel, payment and shopping, can be addressed by cellphones. However, the rapid change of the world has also created some inconvenience to the elderly who are in general not capable of using smart phones to take care of their needs for clothing, food, housing and transportation. Under this context, how to help the elderly integrate into the mobile Internet world becomes a problem that UNISOC has always been focusing on.

UNISOC has cooperated with its partners and launched a variety of smart terminal products specifically for the elderly, including feature cellphones, smart phones and smart watches. Based on the strong capability in chipset technology, UNISOC gives up the complex touch-screen design, and adopts the classic physical keys and buttons with large font, loud volume and large screen design to fully take the using habits of the elderly into consideration; Functions such as one-click call, precise positioning system, one-click SOS early warning and health monitoring, enable the majority of the elderly no longer to be kept out from the digital world.

On the one hand, scientific and technological development helps mankind improve the quality of life, and on the other hand, it should also promotes the sustainable social development. Today, energy conservation and environmental protection, low-carbon economy and sustainable development has become a common topic in the world.

To address this particular issue, UNISOC, with its innovative technologies, has been actively making contribution to green travel, intelligent manufacturing and other industries conducive to sustainable development.

According to relevant research data, in 2019, China’s carbon emission accounted for 29% of the world total carbon emission, of which China’s carbon emission from transportation sector accounted for 15% of the country’s terminal carbon emission, where the average annual growth rate of carbon emission has been above 5% in the past nine years. Green travel not only saves energy, improves energy efficiency, reduces pollution, but also benefits health. It is undoubtedly of great significance to decarburization and sustainable development.

The number of two-wheeled electric bikes in China has exceeded 300 million with an annual increase of 30 million in sales volume. However, charging has then become a major bottleneck restricting the market development of two-wheeled electric bikes. As of now, there are mainly three types of public charging facilities available for two-wheeled electric bikes, namely charging pile, charging cabinet and battery swapping cabinet. The first two are both time and space-consuming with low utilization rate. The battery swapping cabinet adopts the on-demand business model, which not only reduces the cost of battery purchasing, but also saves time and is more convenient.

In the market of battery swapping cabinets for two-wheeled electric bikes in China, UNISOC takes up about 60% of the market share. Thanks to UNISOC 4G Cat. 1 chips, riders can quickly and conveniently query the location and details of the shared battery swapping cabinet stations, and complete the battery swapping, promoting the development of the industry for shared two-wheeled electric bikes.

In addition, in the industry of share bikes that is critical to the green travel, we have also made active exploration and in-depth deployment. Almost all shared bike operators in the market, such as Hellobike, Meituan, Didi and Didi Bike (Green Oranges), have begun to adopt UNISOC chips, through which the time-consuming operation for locking and unlocking has been reduced by more than 30% on average, and it can also bring users intelligent riding experience such as voice interaction, which increases the user loyalty for the shared two-wheeled electric bikes. At present, there are more than 2.5 million Hellobike two-wheeled bikes equipped with UNISOC chips.

In addition to the green travel, UNISOC has also cooperated with JD Logistics and created the “5G unmanned warehouse”. Intelligent devices equipped with UNISOC 5G chips such as gateway and AGV logistics carts are utilized to achieve the unmanned management and operation of the entire process of commodity warehousing, storage, handling and sorting. Compared with the conventional methods, the commodity sorting efficiency is 8 times higher with a sorting accuracy up to 99.99%, the human efficiency is over 3 times higher, and the overall input cost is reduced by more than 60%.

Connectivity Unleashed! UNISOC endows technology with temperature, enabling us to connect the world from the present towards the future.
