Dialogue The development of Internet of Things will bring profound changes to private network communication Interview with Mr. He Wei, Chairman of Xinke Communications
Communication technology is changing with each passing day, and the use of it in the industry is brilliant. In recent years, with the rapid development of the Internet of Things, many new formats have emerged, and many changes have begun to take place in the field of private networks. How to develop the Internet of Things under the private network? What changes will the development of the Internet of Things bring to the private network? With these problems in mind, the reporter of Global Private Network Communications has the privilege of interviewing Mr. He Wei, the founder and chairman of Shenzhen Xinke Communications Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "Xinke Communications").
Mr. He Wei was the Director of Wireless Technology of ZTE. He was responsible for planning, international standards and patents of wireless products. He also founded ZTE Mobile and ZTE Jixun subsidiaries. In 2008, he founded Credit Communications. In the field of private networks, Mr. He Wei has been in charge of the design of military wireless encryption network and terminal based on CDMA system, and responsible for the design of cluster system GoTa (based on CDMA technology).
Mr. He Wei is not only a technological cafe, but also has deep insights into market analysis and future prediction. This full sharing of dry goods will bring us more thoughts and harvest.
All Things Trust Union, Wisdom Transferable, Focus on the Development of the Internet of Things
Why did you establish Letter to Communicate? What is the meaning of the company's name "Xinke"?
Credit Communications was established in 2008. I may be one of the early contacts with the Internet of Things in China. We can see that voice communication is limited and data communication is infinite, so the Internet of Things is a very important direction of development. The establishment of Credit Communication in that year is to look forward to the future of the Internet of Things. After nearly ten years of efforts, Credit Communications has grown into a state-level high-tech enterprise focusing on wireless data and terminal technology solutions of the Internet of Things. Our efforts are focused on innovative, reliable and high-performance wireless data and terminal technology solutions, providing customers with professional, high-quality wireless data applications, wireless terminal solutions and customized services.
As for the connotation of the company's name, there is actually a rich process. At the beginning of its establishment, we uphold a simple belief: for ourselves, it is "believe that we can do it"; for customers, it is "we can trust". So the word "trustworthiness" includes the incentive to oneself, urging oneself to be aggressive, honest and trustworthy. However, with the development of the company and the Internet of Things, Credit has been endowed with the new meaning of "All Things Credit Union, Wisdom Transferable", which implies the company's understanding and judgment of the Intelligent Internet of Things.
The concept of the Internet of Things was put forward very early, but it can not be landed for a long time. Today, we see that the development of the Internet of Things is becoming a major trend. The golden age of the Internet of Things is coming. This golden period lasts for at least ten years. For Xinke, this is a huge opportunity.
Second, give full play to the core advantages and promote the development of private network communications
With the social development and the release of relevant policies, the private network market is growing. Can you talk about the similarities and differences between private networks and public networks? What is the company's position in the private network market?
As early as ZTE's work, my team and I have carried out research and development of public and private networks respectively. For example, the military encryption network is a private network, the overall architecture of this network is mainly designed by me. Generally speaking, China's private network has developed very early. Twenty years ago, various systems such as GSM-R, analog trunking network, Tetra and so on developed.
Now the development of private networks is faster and larger, and a new situation has emerged. Mainly the rapid development of public network 4G has laid a solid foundation for the development of private network based on 4G. Former systems were different, but now the convergence of private network and public network infrastructure technology has brought better industrial chain support. In addition, the demand for private networks is also growing.
But there are also big differences between public and private networks. In the core goal, the private network focuses on providing communication security and secure communication, serving command and dispatch, while the public network mainly provides basic communication services. Compared with the public network, the private network will be very different in network architecture, communication protocol, service priority, security, service management, authentication and so on, and even will undergo great changes.
And the orientation of Creditable Communication in private network is to provide terminal solutions for private network, especially differential terminal solutions. At the end of 2014, Credit Communications launched ML7815, a 1.4G/1.8G private network module, which formally entered the private network market. With the market accumulation of public network module for many years, we have launched 1.4G/1.8G band MIFI products for wireless private network, developed module enhanced product ML7815V for high-power CPE applications, and jointly launched 1.4G/1.8G CPE, DTU, handset, law enforcement recorder and wireless face recognition camera for private network, as well as 1.8G DCU for power industry private network and TA for access equipment for rail transit private network. U and other products. In February this year, Xinke Communications was awarded the TD-LTE Industry Development Excellence Award by TD Industry Alliance.
What are the core advantages of Credit Communications in the field of private networks?
In the field of private networks, our core strengths are as follows:
One is the technical advantage. Our core personnel are all system-based, the whole team has more than 20 years of experience. Over 60% of our R&D staff, Credit Communications has always emphasized the understanding of technology, always tracking, learning and using advanced technology. Therefore, we have an in-depth understanding of the system architecture, solutions and unique characteristics of private network communications, which can provide strong technical support.
The other is cost advantage. We focus on data utilization and have a deep understanding of the public network. Credit Communications insists on "public network first, private network accompanying", so we will integrate the general technology of public network and private network, borrow the market cost of public network and the universality of solutions to help private network reduce costs effectively. It is worth emphasizing that we only focus on data application, not large and complete, the purpose is to effectively reduce the cost of the entire industrial chain, expand the scale of application.
On the basis of core advantages, we will continue to strengthen strategic cooperation with terminal manufacturers in various industries, provide more abundant applications, and provide in-depth services to private network base station manufacturers and network operators.
What impact do you think the development of the Internet of Things will have on private network communications?
The development of Internet of Things will bring profound changes to private network communication. Especially the infrastructure with strategic significance, such as power equipment, petrochemical equipment, backbone optical fiber, public safety video surveillance and so on, belongs to the strategic assets of the country. The use of the Internet of Things in these industries must be running on private networks, not relying on public networks. It is extremely insecure to transmit the operational data of these strategic assets on the public network, and the consequences are unimaginable.
As far as the power industry is concerned, whether in the state grid or the South grid, as well as in the fields of distribution, transmission and intelligent electricity sales, it is developing rapidly towards the private network. Operating the Internet of Things under the private network is becoming an important function and development direction of the private network. Private networks will be given more significance in terms of security.
With the development of the Internet of Things, Credit Communications has put forward the concept of "intelligent components", which is our response and advance judgment to the Internet of Things. In terms of private network terminals, we have set up a very core technical direction, which emphasizes the significance of security in particular. For example, we emphasize the security of the operating system, and in terms of smart terminals, we are completely out of touch with Android. Because Android emphasizes convenience, but it reduces the safety factor accordingly. A large part of the Internet of Things has very high security requirements. Therefore, we will devote ourselves to creating safe and easy-to-develop intelligent components to meet the future higher demand for Internet of Things communication and forwarding nodes.
Three Public Networks Intertalk will have more room for development
How do you view the development of public intercom? What measures has the company taken in public intercom?
Eighteen years ago, I was in charge of research and development in GoTa and other fields, and I had contact with dialogue very early. In my opinion, public intercom is a new thing, which will bring profound changes to the intercom market. Previous private network communications have strong geographical constraints and limited coverage. The characteristics of public network intercommunication is to completely break the geographical constraints and achieve cross-network and cross-regional communications, thus bringing great convenience to our work.
In addition, public network intercom is based on the use of business level, independent of the underlying protocol of mobile communications. As the cost of mobile network becomes cheaper and cheaper, the latency becomes lower and lower, and the capability of wireless data channel becomes stronger and stronger, the former technical obstacles are no longer obstacles. Therefore, the use of public network intercom can effectively reduce costs and increase competitive advantage.
At the beginning of its rise, Credit Communications is very optimistic about public network intercommunication. Credit Communications is one of the enterprises engaged in public network intercommunication. At present, public network intercom is in the process of transformation from 2G to 4G. With the progress of this transformation, public network intercom will bring better services to users. For this reason, we are also doing all we can. Credit Communications is actively participating in the formulation of relevant standards for operators, cooperating extensively with customers who talk to the public network, covering all levels of product, standard and system solutions.
Embrace change and grasp the golden period of Internet of things development
Finally, please talk about the development trend of the Internet of Things and its possible impact.
What is the Internet of Things? In a word, it is to realize the interconnection of all things, and "things" are all-inclusive, so the Internet of Things is a very grand concept. Data acquisition, cloud computing and data utilization, including artificial intelligence, belong to this category. From another point of view, the Internet of Things is a very real and concrete concept, which exists around us and brings convenience to our food, clothing, housing, work and study.
In my opinion, the golden age of the Internet of Things has arrived! We see that international organizations such as 3GPP have created a series of standards for the Internet of Things for the first time in the transition from 4G to 5G. Previous mobile communication networks were designed for voice, video and so on, but now the global communication industry specializes in changing communication standards for the needs of the Internet of Things.
With the advent of the Internet of Things, what are the special needs and changes for terminals? In the Internet of Things era, we need an intelligent node in the middle of the whole system, such as cloud computing, fog computing and so on. We need to have the ability of sampling, forwarding, fog computing and security protection. This is the requirement of the core components of the future Internet of Things terminal. Based on this great change trend, we put forward the concept of intelligent components, which is different from the concept of common modules in the past and the concept of Intelligent Platforms in the present.
With the unprecedented growth of the demand for the Internet of Things, the development of the Internet of Things will bring many new changes to the public and private networks. Credit Communications hopes to work together with partners to seize opportunities, embrace change and win-win future.
[Postscript of Interview]
4G and the upcoming 5G technology will play an active role in wireless fields such as video intelligent identification technology, cluster intercom, security monitoring, video conferencing and intelligent city construction. The application of new technology will push the Internet of Things to a new stage.
With the deep development of the Internet of Things, great changes will be brought to the whole communication industry. The Internet of Things (IOT) is a very important development direction for both public and private networks. Nowadays, data application is becoming more and more important in private network communication. It has gradually become the core of application. The new development of private network communication is closely related to the beginning of the Internet of Things.
What "chemical reactions" will occur in the deep integration of private network communication and Internet of Things? We look forward to more exploration and contribution of Sinco Communications. We also hope that the whole industry will work together to open up new market space.
