From April 9th to 11th, the 6th China Information Technology Expo, jointly organized by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of PRC and the Shenzhen Municipal People's Government, was held at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center. As the best Electronic Information Expo in China, the Expo, with the theme “Leading a smart new era for a smart new life”, focused on the achievements of AI, smart networking and new-energy vehicles, smart homes, smart manufacturing and robots, information security, sensors, and IoT. SIMCom, the forerunner of the module industry, attended the Expo with various modules and solutions, winning the NB-IoT Module Brand award.
The modules presented included the automotive grade module SIM7800, the smart module SIM8950, and the NB-IoT module SIM7020 series, which is still impressing everyone. At present, SIMCom has two entire LPWA product lines, the SIM7000 series and the SIM7020 series. The SIM7000 series, SIMCom's first NB-IoT module, uses the Qualcomm platform, and supports multiple frequency bands covering users worldwide. The SIM7020 series with a size of 17.6*15.7*2.3 mm uses the MTK platform, targeting users worldwide. The subsequent sub-modules will be launched for different application scenarios. SIMCom's NB-IoT modules and solutions were well received at the event, where there was an endless stream of visitors to SIMCom’s stand.
Researched and developed according to the SIM7000C module, the wireless geomagnetic vehicle detector is a long-distance sensor based on NB-IoT technology. Its purpose is to accurately detect use of parking spaces, and compile parking time statistics, while transmitting parking space information to the cloud service platform. It can be widely used in smart transportation, smart communities, and smart parking systems, and is applicable to all types of car parks, such as those found in industrial parks, on the roadside, and in other public places.
With the popularization of mobile payment and the emergence of the shared economy in China, many traditional enterprises have turned to development models which incorporate IoT. One typical example is the QR code scan-based claw crane machine. These machines use the SIMCom 4G module SIM7600CE-T. Users can scan the QR code to make a quick payment and start the machine, which is both easy and convenient. Moreover, the operator can remotely monitor the machine to make major labor savings.
At the Shenzhen Computing Conference held during the past few days, SIMCom displayed a shared coffee machine where “SIMCom Coffee" proved to be very popular. A shared coffee machine “demo” was also on show.
The shared massage chair is also another typical example of a shared application, which also uses the SIM7500SA module.
