China will build an emerging market for IOT with over 1.4 million 5G base stations
The conference attracted close to 10 million people from across the globe. State leaders, members of the fourth estate from multiple international newsrooms, and experts in academia set foot on the 2021 WIOTC stage. Ambassadors and business leaders from more than 80 countries also graced the occasion led by the chair of the conference and WIOTC Vice Chairman, Liang Zi.
WIOTC Chairman of the Executive Committee, He Xuming, pointed out in his keynote speech that the development of the world IoT has been remarkable. It is marked by the construction of network infrastructure, development of system platforms, testing applications for landing and industrial systems. Other contributions include development and accelerated innovation at the industry level and the hype surrounding concepts. He further noted that these developments were on the blink of establishing an emerging market for the Internet of things supported by over 1.4 million 5G base stations in China.
The global Internet of Things might exceed $8 trillion in 2022 – WIOTC
Xuming mentioned that China’s GDP is projected to grow by around 8% to reach 18 trillion US dollars. The Internet of Things is expected to account for 2 trillion Yuan growing by about 30% from the previous year. Subsequently, the US has heavily invested in research & development in groundbreaking technologies for the Internet of Things, including the latest chip-making technologies as well as a hint into a $200 billion stimulus package. In light of the strides made by China and the US in the IoT race, France, the UK, Japan, Netherlands, Iran, and South Korea have upgraded their industrial Internet of Things and intelligent chip manufacturing, among other developments.
The Internet of Things is projected to top $8 trillion globally this year alone, with a forecasted annual growth of 20% moving forward. At its core, the Internet of Things will rely on connectivity as its cornerstone and key accelerator of growth. Ultimately, the goal is to form a robust ecosystem that will power the new age of the internet of everything.
The chairman of the WIOTC executive committee, He Xuming, emphasized the crucial positioning of IoT. He Termed it as an intelligent co-dependent ecosystem of integrated networks sharing information and intelligence. This network is poised to deliver a new age of information technology, the digital economy, and the real economy through digitization.
The committee of the members of the treaty organization will promote the Internet of things
Conferencing is expected to utilize the Internet of things – international organization world conference on the Internet of things admits reception from government agencies across the world. The committee of the members of the treaty organization will promote the Internet of things under the mandate of the collaborative effort of multiple stakeholders led by the United Nations. All these actions are geared towards safeguarding the interests and rights of individual countries. Additionally, it will boost people’s right to privacy and propose workable solutions to global interconnectivity challenges.
At the WIOTC, Shi Dinghuan, executive Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Conference, brought attention to the latest version of the white paper. ‘The 2021 World Internet of Things White Paper released by the Conference puts forward new understanding, definition, top-level architecture, industrial economic system, new economic model, economic market construction, and other forward-looking guidance,’’ he said.
The treaty organization and the emerging global economy support basic expression, promote the infrastructure of the Internet of Things, its economic development, and set up the building blocks for an interconnected world. These efforts are targeted at the global uptake of IoT awareness, the definition of key attributes, practices, and the economics of the Internet of Things.
The White Paper Paving The Way
The White Paper highlights and draws attention to new structures, technicalities, characteristics, and theoretical framework of IoT as defined from its infancy and as it relates to the growth of the global economy. The main tenets of the progression of the Internet of Things, the new economic model, and the development of the global market are discussed.
The White Paper also elaborates on the growing trend of the basic network of the Internet of Things. It further emphasizes visualization and its structural elements, real-time and post-tracking capabilities. The IoT economic market system is divided into several sectors, energy, health care, industry, logistics, agriculture, transportation, transport, aerospace, and intelligent life. It focuses on the sustainable development of the Internet and the new economic model to bridge the global digital divide. Subsequently, setting the pace for the new global economy and create sustainable networks.
Su Tao, Vice Chairman of the Executive Committee of the WIOTC, presented the International Convention on the Internet of Things articles of association. The WIOTC is a non-profit institution pushing and facilitating the agenda of global adoption of IoT. The purpose of the conference complements the UN objectives. That is, to arrange the world dealings for IoT worldwide show and the development of the Internet of Things worldwide in a new prudent market. The ultimate goal, however, is to contribute towards the UN’s SDGs through better interconnectivity.
The convention further mentioned that it would now acknowledge applications from government offices, research foundations, social associations, and ventures from different nations. Hence, becoming members of the convention and mutually planning for the global adoption of the Internet of Things. The conditions, rules, and process of joining the International Convention on the Internet of Things were stipulated.
Li Bohu described the initial practice and overall research of the new intelligent Internet of Things
Li Bohu, an academician and a member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, conveyed a feature report on the Smart Internet of Things framework. He expounded on the preliminary practice and the entire research on the new smart IoT. It gives way to the new era, unique situations, as well as the journey by breaking down this cutting-edge technology. The report captures the technical pedigree, entire system architecture, and technologies of the Smart IoT. The application is a product of the astute framework created by experts from the Chinese Academy of Engineering across all fields, including horticulture, energy, clinical treatment, transportation, and natural security.
Subsequently, new innovation, design, and financial model will cover the fields of the public, such as the economy, livelihoods, and security. Human culture and its frameworks, models, mechanical means, and business structures will go through significant changes. The new model will impart new business types like digitalization, systems administration, cloud, and knowledge. It tends to be basically perceived as another type of Internet of Things, a different economic model and approach to IoT as we know it.
