Organized by the Posts & Telecom Newspaper, the May 17 Typical Demonstration Case selection covers three innovation fields – technology, application and industry. The selection panel consists of experts from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) and the top four operators in China, as well as senior editors and journalists of the Posts & Telecom Newspaper. As an authoritative media agency in China’s communications industry directly under MIIT, the newspaper has been keeping abreast of industry developments. With focus on new-generation information and communications technology represented by 5G, big data, and AI, it keeps exploring ongoing hot spots and development directions of the ICT industry, which has attracted extensive attention and engagement by industry players both upstream and downstream. In response to such ambition, SST joined in the selection with its one-stop super solutions and professional consulting services, and finally stood out from many competitors and was awarded the Innovative Enterprise in the Communications Industry of 2021. This year, a total of 17 companies have won the Typical Demonstration Case award. The strict selection and evaluation criteria, and the short winner list make the honor more precious.

Innovation has emerged as a crucial topic in the new round of revolution in the communications sector. It is the companies tackling challenges on the front line of technological innovation that are pushing the communication industry forward; it is them that are developing innovative products day and night; and it is also them that are advancing with the times and injecting new forces into the industry. While propelling the industry, they help consolidate the foundation of technological innovation in the communications field, and enhance China’s image as a country strong in independent innovation. As new technologies such as 5G, big data, AI, cloud computing, blockchain, and industrial Internet welcome better integration and innovation, a smart world with all things connected becomes possible. SST, founded in 2001, has taken root in China for two decades and is coming to a new stage.
