On September 21, the "5G Application Summit, Wuhan", jointly sponsored by the www.people.com.cn., the Economic and Information Technology Bureau of Wuhan Municipality and other units, was held in the Donghu International Conference Center in Wuhan. With "5G & City · Life" as the theme, the summit brought together more than 300 guests from a variety of fields, including the representatives from government authorities, universities, research institutions, academics, and enterprises and industry experts, to explore the status quo and future trend of the 5G technologies and industries in China, fully interpret the industrial orientation from many perspectives such as implementing national policies and driving technological innovation, and demonstrate the latest outcomes of 5G applications in a centralized manner. Wang Xinzhe, chief economist of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the P.R.C., Xie Guoming, member of the 18th Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the C.P.C. and former deputy editor-in-chief of the People's Daily, and Cao Guangjing, vice governor of the Hubei Provincial People's Government, attended the summit and delivered a speech respectively.
Yangtze Optical Fibre and Cable Joint Stock Limited Company (YOFC) (Stock Code: 601869.SH, 06869.HK) was unveiled at the 5G application service zone. Zhuang Dan, executive director and president of YOFC, upon invitation, attended the summit and made a keynote speech titled "All-optical Network Starting the 5G Era of the Internet of Things".
The year 2019 marks the first year of commercial 5G era. According to Zhuang Dan, 5G is starting a new era of the Internet of Things (IoT), which implies higher rates, more connections, and lower latency. Massive connections and applications for people and things are coming true. The 5G IoT will also double the growth of data and focus on many fields such as the industrial Internet, empowering more vertical industries and promoting the digital, networked and intelligent development of all walks of life. All these are inseparable from a solid fibre-based infrastructure network.
With unremitting efforts in the fibre and optical cable industry over the past 31 years, YOFC has always adhered to independent innovation for development, and perfectly transformed from “an industry follower” to “an industry leader”. At present, YOFC boasts the only enterprise that has mastered the techniques for preparing the three mainstream preforms and achieved industrialization successfully in the world. We have mastered all the core technologies for fibre preforms, fibres, and optical cables. We have also independently designed and manufactured the production facilities, with true and full self-control for the key and core technologies. Our proprietary and key products, such as the single-mode fibre series and OM5 multi-mode fibres at ultra-low attenuation, have taken the lead in the world.
To embrace the new opportunities in the 5G era, YOFC has already begun to make arrangement based on the deep understanding for the fibre-based infrastructure network. We have proposed a “5G comprehensive connection strategy”, with the backbone, metro and access networks as the main idea, covering a variety of 5G application scenarios and three connotations of "all scenarios, excellent quality, and high efficiency" from wired networks to wireless networks, and from urban areas to the countryside. Moreover, with the advantages in the intelligent manufacturing and industrial Internet, YOFC has launched “YOFC's Solution for Optical-Cloud Industrial Internet”, empowering the transformation of enterprise digitalization and business models to create value.
In the sub-forum, Dr. Hu Peng from the strategic center of YOFC gave a themed presentation on “5G + All-optical Industrial Interconnect”, detailing YOFC's solution for optical-cloud industrial Internet and intelligent production and application, and promoting the digital transformation and upgrade of enterprises.
In the future, with the “Smart Link Better Life” mission, YOFC will continue to adhere to innovation-driven development, provide customers with premium products and services, promote the 5G industry in a cluster mode, and develop great and powerful industry chains, making more contributions to building a leading R&D and industrialization base for 5G technologies in China and building the “Donghu Network Valley” in Wuhan.
