This marked another technical breakthrough that Hongshan has made since the city built the nation's first high-standard all-optical network in September, 2015.

The 35 billion-yuan ($5 billion) NB-IoT (Narrow Band Internet of Things) network employs the most advanced network communication equipment and network architecture, and covers the whole 5,800-hectare Hongshan town.

Compared with traditional networks, NB-IoT has a wider coverage range, massive connections and lower power consumption.

The network is expected to play a role in wider fields in the first quarter of 2017, including intelligent meter reading, parking, trace and smart home technology.
