In the meeting, Wang Enxi, President of Sunsea Bewinner, Wang Xueqiang, Vice President of Sunsea IoT, Doctor Xue Guodong, CEO of Ayla Sunsea and other executive team members also gave speeches on their cooperation with SIMCom in “cloud+ terminal” full-ecology solutions. From module to connection and to cloud platform service, Sunsea AIoT is able to provide a complete set of eco-chain service systems, and become an smart connection enabler to build smartly connected cloud platforms and take cloud platforms as the center to establish four “scenario-related” products: traffic module, general traffic, connecting and enabling set and one module with two-cards. We hope our efforts will provide clients with a good user experience of one-point connection and seamless switching. Sunsea AIoT is actively building its own AIoT technology innovation core abilities, block chain platform abilities, industry cloud platform abilities, “cloud+ terminal” Internet of Things comprehensive solution abilities and the combined abilities of new technology + new finance + comprehensive planning. By increasing its own strengths, Sunsea AIoT aims to provide stronger and more powerful technological support.
Sunsea AIoT ecosystem is an economic complex with common goals, consisting of chip providers, terminal providers, sales partners and other stakeholder enterprises. Sunsea hopes to build the Sunsea “cloud+ terminal” interest community of cooperation and ecology by open collaboration.
