51VR Joins China-Singapore (Chongqing) Dedicated Connectivity Channel to Boost New Smart City Construction
China-Singapore (Chongqing) Dedicated Connectivity Channel Development Forum, co-hosted by the Chongqing Municipal Government and the Ministry of Communications and Information of Singapore, opened in Chongqing on November 21. As one of the local high-tech enterprises, 51VR, along with other 13 companies including tech giant Tencent, major data center operator GDS, and National Cancer Center Singapore, signed as first customers of the data channel in Chongqing Connectivity Initiative (CCI).
Qiu Tian, 51VR partner and head of the southwest headquarter, attended the signing ceremony and signed project cooperation agreements on behalf of 51VR.
This strategic forum has tremendous international significance. As China’s first point-to-point dedicated channel on international internet data targeting one country and a major information transmission channel connecting the Belt and Road with the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor (ILSTC), this China-Singapore data channel is aiming to serve the international communication network between western China and Southeast Asia in collaborative design, joint R&D, data processing, remote monitoring, etc. with a broad range of application in telemedicine, smart education, smart travel, smart logistics, ultra-high-definition video transmission and cross-border e-commerce.
As the only company in the 14 with digital twin and 5G cloud rendering as its core technology, 51VR owns a real benchmark project that has already been launched in Chongqing and Singapore. Being one of the first batch of signing enterprises of this strategic channel attests to the firm’s recognition from both Chongqing and Singapore.
51VR started cooperation with Singapore companies in as early as May 2019. It has helped Surbana Jurong, one of Asia’s largest urban development and infrastructure consulting firms, in building Singapore’s smart city management system. 51VR not only provided a rapid restoration of Singapore’s large scenarios but also reproduced Singapore’s iconic buildings with high definition. By synchronizing the real-world data, the system was capable of multiple smart functions like real-time traffic control, building equipment management, bridge maintenance, energy-saving and flood simulation.
In September 2019, 51VR and Surbana Jurong Group signed a strategic cooperation agreement in Singapore, endeavoring to create a more authentic digital twin city of Singapore and build an integrated and visual smart city operating platform with a higher definition.
In Chongqing, 51VR has delivered digital twin products of Changshou town smart travel project and autonomous driving simulation test for Chongqing Vehicle Test & Research Institute. Meanwhile, smart scenic zone of Wulong Fairy Mountain and upgrade of existing smart Jialing River in Liangjiang New Area are under construction. In the future, 51VR will continue to work with the district governments of Chongqing High-tech, Jiangbei, Yuzhong and the South Bank to develop 5G-based digital twin city businesses.
In November 2019, Qiu Tian, a partner of 51VR and head of the southwest headquarter, officially announced that 51VR southwest headquarter had signed and settled in Chongqing Liangjiang New Area to facilitate Chongqing’s smart city construction at the Chongqing Talent Conference hosted by the Chongqing Municipal Committee of the CPC and the Chongqing Municipal People’s Government.
Joining the China-Singapore (Chongqing) Dedicated Connectivity Channel will allow 51VR to participate in more cooperation projects between the two countries, including the joint construction of new smart cities in the 5G era as well as science and technology innovation in the Belt and Road, boosting Sino-Singapore cooperation in connectivity and modern service economy.
China-Singapore (Chongqing) Dedicated Connectivity Channel was approved for construction by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) in February 2019 and was officially launched in September.
