China Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) System Industry Report says by the end of 2013, 19 Chinese cities had put 87 urban rail lines into operation with the operating mileage of 2,539 km, of which 56 lines, 1,788 km (70.42%) and 1,017 operating stations were contributed by top six cities - Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Chongqing and Tianjin. In 2014, it is expected that 13 Chinese cities will launch new rail lines, with 403.5 km and 270 stations to be added. In 2014-2015, China will fulfill the construction of 12 new high-speed railways with the operating mileage of 8,887 km. The booming high-speed railways will boost the railway passenger transportation capacity and drive opportunities for China AFC system market.

Chinese AFC system vendors include: GRG Banking Equipment, Potevio, Shanghai Huahong Jitong Smart System, Shandong New Beiyang Information Technology, China National Software & Service, Founder International, Shanghai Huateng Software Systems and Gaoxin Modern Intelligent System. The AFC equipment and core modules produced by the Chinese AFC giant GRG Banking Equipment have been applied to more than thirty urban rail transportation and high-speed passenger railway lines in China. In H1 2013, GRG Banking Equipment won the bid for the Project of Banknote Change, Ticket & Card Sale and Recovery Modules in Ningbo and signed a contract about Changsha Metro Line 2 Project; meanwhile, its AFC revenue grew 98.47% year on year to RMB47.20 million.

Huahong Jitong is the only system provider focusing on AFC system in China. Since 2013, the slowdown of some municipal construction projects as well as long construction period have impacted the revenue of the company. From January to September 2013, Huahong Jitong achieved the revenue of RMB148.9 million, down 22.97% year on year; its net income dropped by 22.25% year on year to RMB16.7 million. From 2009 onward, Huahong Jitong has extended its market outside Shanghai, and won the rail transportation projects in Suzhou, Xi'an, Kunming and Harbin through tenders. In H1 2013, the revenue in the regions outside Shanghai accounted for 69.58% of the company's total revenue. Order a copy of this report for US$2300 (single user PDF) at .

Analysis and Forecast of China AFC (Automatic Fare Collection System) Industry, 2013-2017 says By 2015, the operating mileage of China's rail transit will reach more than 3,000 km and will reach 6,000 km by 2020, which will need the investment amount of about CNY 3 trillion to CNY 4 trillion. In 2013, the market scale of AFC will reach CNY 4.2 billion and it will achieve CNY 6 billion by 2017, among which, the urban rail transit AFC application will be CNY 3.5 billion and the high-speed rail field will be CNY 2.5 billion. The market prospect is broad.

Companies like GRG Banking, Thales Panda Transportation System Co., Ltd., Shanghai Potevio Co., Ltd., Shanghai Huahong Jitong Smart System Co., Ltd. and Modern Computer Manufacturer Co., Ltd. are profiled in this research. With the rapid development of the rail transit construction, the demand volume for AFC is larger and larger; as the investment cost of importing equipment is large and with the issuance of State Council's requirement that 60% of the rail transit equipment should be localized, the domestic AFC companies will account for more market shares with promising prospects.

Scott Guthrie's keynote presentation "Journey to the intelligent cloud" is a must view video. This is from AzureCon 2015, September 29, 2015 I have reproduced some screen shots in case you are unable to view this long video for one reason or another. One of the highlights is 3 datacenters coming on line in India.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief Architect at CTS, will explore the synergy of Big Data and IoT. First he will take a closer look at the Internet of Things and Big Data individually, in terms of what, which, why, where, when, who, how and how much. Then he will explore the relationship between IoT and Big Data. Specifically, he will drill down to how the 4Vs aspects intersect with IoT: Volume, Variety, Velocity and Value. In turn, Tony will analyze how the key components of IoT influence Big Data: Device, Connectivity, Context, and Intelligence. He will dive deep to the matrix...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Building actually breathes - immediately flagging overheating in a closet or over cooling in unoccupied ho...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated and cloud solutions through hybrid hosting – a sustainable solution for the data required to manage I...
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...
Apps and devices shouldn't stop working when there's limited or no network connectivity. Learn how to bring data stored in a cloud database to the edge of the network (and back again) whenever an Internet connection is available. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate at IBM Cloud Data Services, will demonstrate techniques for replicating cloud databases with devices in order to build offline-first mobile or Internet of Things (IoT) apps that can provide a better, faster user experience, both offline and online. The focus of this talk will be on IBM Cloudant, Apa...
As enterprises capture more and more data of all types – structured, semi-structured, and unstructured – data discovery requirements for business intelligence (BI), Big Data, and predictive analytics initiatives grow more complex. A company’s ability to become data-driven and compete on analytics depends on the speed with which it can provision their analytics applications with all relevant information. The task of finding data has traditionally resided with IT, but now organizations increasingly turn towards data source discovery tools to find the right data, in context, for business users, d...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
