The IOT infrastructure project will be expanded to accommodate 500 to 1000 areas of urban governance applications in the next three years, and gradually extended to the city of Wuxi and the entire province.


Both sides will make intelligent data system layout in the Hongshan IOT town for the construction of the next generation future data center featuring efficient, clean and flexible operation. The command co-ordination center and the IOT "functional cloud" innovation center will come up with a data network to create flow of data and online value.

As the core demonstration zone of the IOT application, Wuxi is now home to some 2000 IOT firms with annual operating revenue of more than 200 billion yuan and a workforce of over 150000 employees.

Wuxi Hongshan IOT town is the first of its kind in the country, relying on the unique position of the national sensor innovation demonstration center.
