Technology rules, devices prominent

MORE than 100,000 ICT devices have been employed to stage World Expo 2010, making the event a central stage for the latest ICT technology, the Expo IT department said yesterday.

The devices include desktop, handheld and special installments, including more than 10,000 cameras set up on the Expo site, said Zhou Weidong, IT department director of the Bureau of Shanghai World Expo Coordination.

"The Expo has become a huge stage to display the latest technologies and ICT development trends," Zhou said during the IBM Mid-Market Forum held yesterday in Shanghai.

The highlights include multimedia shows with LED (light emitting diode) and 3-D technologies, 4G mobile communications networks 10 to 20 times faster than 3G, and the cyber Expo show.

Many technologies represent the trend of industry development, which will be adopted in future life, Zhou added.

No fake Expo admission tickets have been found because it's "too hard to duplicate," he said.

All tickets feature the RFID (radio frequency identification) chip, which is expected to be widely used in urban infrastructure construction, transportation, logistics, retail and other sectors in the "near future", Zhou said.

China Mobile, the world's biggest mobile carrier, has established a 4G network with China-developed TD-LTE (time division-long term evolution) technology.

The company plans to test the 4G technology in three cities nationwide after the Expo, said Wang Jianzhou, China Mobile's chairman.

The Expo IT department, in cooperation with three Expo IT sponsors - IBM, Cisco and Lenovo - have built more than 40 systems to operate the event, including logistics and security networks.

Several hundred million Netizens have visited the Expo's Website, Zhou said.
