Recently, Yangtze Optical Fibre and Cable Joint Stock Limited Company (YOFC, stock code: 601869.SH, 06869.HK) has successfully developed ultra-high fibre count cables with normal single-mode fibre, and become the first to put it into batch production, which supports Hengqin in the building of "Smart Island". This marks YOFC is now industry leading in ultra-high fibre count cables, and its actual capacity for supplying ultra-high fibre count cables enters a new stage.
Located on the Hengqin Island, Zhuhai City, Guangdong Province, the Hengqin New Area was established as a demonstration zone to seek a new cooperation model for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area under the guidance of "one country, two systems", and a pilot zone for deepening reform and opening-up, and for technological innovations. It is also known as "a state-level new area", "a pilot free trade zone", "a demonstration zone for new model of in-depth cooperation between Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macau", and "the leading area at the economic zone of the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge area". Currently, Hengqin is now deepening innovation, to make innovation its development driver, and building a knowledge-intensive and information-intensive "Smart Island", with its focus on developing new industries such as the IT industry and digital economy. Hengqin endeavors to be a pioneer in building modern economic system in China. Supported by innovative products such as City Brain, IoT, and IntelliSense System, as well as Artificial Intelligence, the "Smart Island" of Hengqin is devoted to building the infrastructure and platform for a smart city, and promoting digitized and intelligentized upgrade in city governance, industry optimization, public service, and environment governance.
To meet requirements from the client, the R&D team and the sales team of YOFC cooperated closely. Through in-depth communication with the client, YOFC successfully developed the ultra-high fibre count cable as the client required. The cable is simple and convenient to be connected, with high fibre intensity and small outside diameter, and flexible and counter-bending sleeving. It is easy to use in construction, and can be well adapted to different environment of installation. In this construction project, the ultra-high fibre count cables connect Hengqin New Area and Zhuhai Free Trade Zone in multiple loops and multiple circuits. The cable excels in its mechanical capacity and environment-adaptive performance. Its capacities in anti-pulling and anti-pressing, and stability made the construction possible.
The ICT industry will have increasingly higher requirements for network bandwidth, and the resources for the cables for network construction will be increasingly scarcer. Therefore, the client has a higher requirement for the ultra-high fibre count cable. YOFC supplied the ultra-high fibre count cables in bulk, which effectively promotes Hengqin in constructing the innovation platform, from the perspective of network and informatization. In addition, it is also significant for the information construction and technological innovation for the Hengqin New Area in the China (Guangdong) Pilot Free Trade Zone, for improving the development of the IT industry in Hengqin, and for transforming Hengqin into a "Smart Island".
Bearing the mission "Smart Link Better Life" in mind, and sticking to the core value "Client Focus Accountability Innovation Stakeholder Benefits", YOFC will focus on the pain points of the industry and the requirements from clients, be innovation-driven and quality-oriented, and keep providing high-quality products and solutions, to create values for clients, to promote technological progress in the industry, and to contribute more to social development.
