World IoT Awards
The Internet of Things (IoT) is not only a digital and intelligent ecosystem that integrates the world's economic society, public life, and national governance, but also a new global economic platform combining the intelligent information technology and the real economy. With the global deployment of 5G and related applications, the era of 5G IoT began in 2019, and the global COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 further highlights the importance of IoT technology.
