Internet Plus has changed traditional lifestyles and created a new ecological development mode. It is no longer surprising that farmers control the temperature of fishponds with modern devices, doctors test body temperature with a sensor and parents monitor children's travelling route through a bracelet on the wrist. People have benefited a lot from the convenience brought by Internet Plus.

On Oct 19, 2015, the city launched its online public service platform on Tencent's apps WeChat, Mobile QQ and Tencent News to provide 11 public services for Wuxi residents including traffic queries, weather forecasts, and online payments. More services are to come.

By the end of 2014, there were 979 registered Internet of things (IOC) enterprises in the city with a total investment fund of 200 billion yuan ($31b), rising by 30 percent for four consecutive years. These IOT enterprises are mainly involved in equipment manufacturing, software development, system integration and network operations. The intelligent sensor industry has been listed as the province's only innovative industrial cluster.

At present, the city has set up 13 IOT industry alliances to deepen cooperation with fortune global 500 companies like Microsoft and Siemens. Wuxi enterprises have undertaken IOT projects from more than 20 provinces in the country and 30 countries in the world.
