The first EXCITING webinar was organised on July 26, 2017. The webinar was held in Chinese and focused on discussing the development and future of IoT and IPv6 in China.
The affiliated entities from both China and the EU（8 from China and 7 from the EU) jointly established the Group for EU – China Study on IoT and 5G, with which China and the EU jointly applied for and obtained approval for the EU H2020 EXCITING Project. The project, lasting for 26 months, is aimed at facilitating the cooperation between the two sides in IoT standards, interoperability and industries, by means of conferences, report release and offline activities, and at the same time, deepening the EU – China industrial cooperation to satisfy the demand from the next generation mobile communication system (5G).
At this webinar, five guests, including Professor Gao Shuai, from BJTU, Professor Ma Yan from BUPT, Professor Li Qiang from HUST, Professor Zhou Xu from Network Center of CAS and Mr. Cheng Yuan, Vice-President of BII Group, held in-depth discussion on some burning issues including China’s IoT and 5G development, IPv6 promotion and deployment and cyber security and maintenance.
