Using Communication Technology to Create a Better Future

2023-06-08 18:19:24

The primary purpose of technology advancement has always been to improve people's lives. The global economy has entered a high-speed track with the advancement of information and communication technology, and the digital economy has emerged as the primary driving force for socioeconomic progress. Despite fast development, many countries and regions around the world still have "offline" populations.

Based on this, World Telecommunication Day 2023 will focus on bridging the digital divide and improving the capabilities of LDCs through information and communication technologies. The International Telecommunication Union urges undeveloped countries to commit to universal connectivity and digital transformation in order to attain the right of everyone.

In comparison to other countries, the least developed countries face long-term consequences such as climate change, natural disasters, man-made disasters, and infectious diseases; a lack of sanitation facilities; severe shortages of medical and educational resources; a lack of awareness of equality and rights; and a high vulnerability to external economic shocks. The least developed countries have the world's largest undeveloped resources, and meeting the requirements of these countries is critical to reaching sustainable development goals.

Out of the world's 8 billion inhabitants, 2.7 billion do not have internet access, with one-third living in the 46 least developed countries. In high-income countries, 87% of children and youth have internet access, compared to only 6% in low-income countries.

Smart Agriculture

Agriculture is the backbone of the economy of the least developed countries, yet productivity is low due to climate conditions and human resources. Soil and air data can be collected by agricultural IoT devices connected with core communication modules for automated regulation and operation.

Precision agriculture is possible with unmanned agricultural machinery equipped with SIMCom's 5G module, which allows for precise quantification of sowing, fertilizing, and spraying. It is efficient and scientific, and it can also boost farmland produce, resulting in many productivity upgrades.

Smart Healthcare

When dealing with public health incidents, the least developed countries have resource constraint, poor public health infrastructure, and challenges in drug procurement, in addition to dealing with daily health and medical issues and providing emergency treatment for battle casualties. The remote surgical robot and 5G live streaming device equipped with SIMCom's 5G module can effectively help residents in various regions solve problems such as difficulty in seeking medical treatment and inability to find local doctors during emergency treatment.

In terms of hospital infrastructure and public facilities, the usage of core communication modules in conjunction with big data, cloud computing, and other technologies can be used to create digital systems for hospitals and patient archives. This is not true.

Medical monitoring bracelets are capable of collecting, transmitting, evaluating, and communicating patient health data. Outside of the usual clinical setting, monitor patient health and collect health data from blood sugar, blood pressure, blood oxygen levels, heart rate, sleep habits, and other indicators. Patients can feel at ease even when they are not at home.

Furthermore, many LDCs are still at war or in harsh environments, and exoskeleton rehabilitation training robots can effectively assist individuals with mobility disorders in limb rehabilitation training, shorten the rehabilitation cycle, and make their lives happier and dignified.

Intelligent Education

Most LDCs have severely limited educational resources, with relatively little state support for the education system, resulting in school closures, a shortage of basic items such as textbooks for students, and teacher absenteeism owing to not being paid.

Children are the hope and future of the country. Relying on the low latency, high-speed, and wide coverage characteristics of 5G, children can have the opportunity to attend remote classes. Teachers can teach in real-time anywhere in the world, and can also interact, ask questions, and answer questions online. Smart education allows children in these areas to no longer lose at the starting line.

For more than 20 years, SIMCom has been thoroughly planted in the field of the Internet of Things, firmly positioned at the forefront of the worldwide wireless communication module industry. It is the first company in the Chinese wireless communication module industry to join the international market, and it has built a strong brand in other countries. SIMCom has the potential to empower the international market and the least developed countries to build communication technology, with 20 years of expertise and technological accumulation at home and abroad, high-quality services, and a full variety of module goods.

SIMCom, as a member of the communication sector, is also responsible for enhancing the capacities of the least developed countries. Using more stable, dependable, and cost-effective IoT wireless module products to bridge the digital divide in the world's least developed countries.
