June 23, 2011 – The ZigBee Alliance opened two new offices in China to drive greater ZigBee adoption and address ZigBee standards to meet China’s specific needs for its rapidly expanding infrastructure and growing markets. The Alliance appointed Jerry Huang as director of ZigBee Asia Pacific, Greater China representative, with offices in the Sensing China Center in Wuxi and in Zhongguancun Science Park (Z-Park) in Beijing. Huang, who has 20 years of marketing experience, will lead the Alliance’s collaboration on the Internet of Things industry efforts and standards development from these offices. “ZigBee is very excited to have a local presence in China,” said Bob Heile, chairman of the Alliance. “China has declared the Internet of Things to be one of three strategic imperatives in its current five year plan and ZigBee’s comprehensive global standards for wireless sensor networks are key enablers for the IoT. Our two office locations will help us expand and deepen our collaboration with China in achieving this important objective.” The Chinese Sensing China Center, located in Wuxi, is a thriving center of excellence on the Internet of Things. The Z-Park is one of the largest high-tech parks in China, located in the heart of the Chinese Capital City. Traditionally, many national and highly influential technology projects have initiated at Z-Park. “These new offices in China represent an exciting opportunity to incorporate ZigBee standards in the millions of metering and Smart Grid deployments planned throughout China as well as the huge number of commercial and residential buildings planned for construction,” Huang said. “ZigBee standards can make a significant contribution to China today.” ZigBee: Control your world ZigBee offers green and global wireless standards connecting the widest range of devices to work together intelligently and help you control your world.
