ZTE Corporation, a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, today announced that it has demonstrated its Smart Parking and Smart Water Monitoring services based on narrow-band Internet of things (NB-IoT) at the World Internet Conference in Wuzhen, China.

Jointly launched by China Mobile’s Zhejiang Branch and ZTE in October 2016, Smart Parking and Smart Water Control are China’s first commercial NB-IoT services that comply with the 3GPP standard.

Smart Parking
Smart Parking uses underground car detection. By monitoring changes in a magnetic field, parking space data is captured. Relevant data is then transmitted to the management platform through the NB-IoT network to help car owners quickly park or find their cars. A variety of APP-enabled payment such as WeChat makes the service user-friendly and easy to maintain, saving traditional management costs and allowing revenues to increase. This smart service also relieves urban traffic jams and mitigates air pollution.

Smart Water Monitoring
Zhejiang Mobile and ZTE have jointly piloted a Smart Water Monitoring project in Wuzhen. In this project, collection points are deployed over a wide range of water sources in order to help make information monitoring, processing and analysis more intelligent. The system can be interconnected with up to five governmental water control platforms to provide a collaborative emergency response.

Various water parameter collection sensors, NB-IoT chips and communication modules are embedded in the smart terminals. Water buoys detect and collect surrounding water quality changes, before transmitting the data to the IoT cloud platform via the NB-IoT network. In the current system, various indexes of detected data can be viewed, and information about the quality, stage and drainage of various types of water can be sensed in real time. Timely forewarnings and scheduling can also be provided to allow intelligent scientific water environment management.

The third World Internet Conference, held from November 16th to 18th in Wuzhen, Zhejiang, China, was centered on Innovation-Driven Internet Development for the Benefit of All. It exhibited global Internet development trends, participants’ latest achievements and future development prospects. The first World Internet Conference was held in 2014 and since then, ZTE has been actively involved in service demonstrations and on-site network safeguarding, consequently earning recognition from industrial customers.

ZTE continues to work closely with the Zhejiang Branch of China Mobile to provide exclusive end-to-end solutions to wireless networks, core networks and service platforms. Based on its existing network in Wuzhen and narrow-band cellular technologies, ZTE has deployed IoT applications and demonstrated its IoT technology achievements to the World Internet Conference participants.
