(Yicai Global) April 3 -- “Intelligent industry will allow SMEs to stop just producing counterfeits,” Foxconn founder and president Terry Gou said yesterday during the 2018 China (Guangdong) Digital Economy Integration Innovation Conference held yesterday.
Foxconn will open its cloud services to small and middle-sized enterprises (SMEs), he pledged. Foxconn is the name under which the Taiwan-based integrated electronics maker Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. does business. Foxconn’s cloud platform is the only one with an industrial internet certificate in Guangdong province, which was the venue for the event.
Foxconn’s cloud service is different from others in nature. This is because of the data of its industrial internet, which is structured, rather than dispersed, Gou said, adding that this kind of internet demands high accuracy and brooks no error.
Foxconn will join hands with SMEs in Guangdong in their industrial transformation and upgrading, to turn the province into an industrial internet innovation center and demonstration base through industry clusters, he said.
He expects to popularize the idea of industrial internet to SMEs and help them gain competitiveness.
Foxconn will strive to become a comprehensive technology enabler by offering an all-industrial-chain aid system. It can enable SMEs by building up high-performance clouds, promoting industrial clusters like industrial controllers, precision tools, and robots, and setting up robotics and artificial intelligence institutes, Gou said.
“Intelligent industrial internet is our common goal, but Foxconn cannot do everything alone when developing [it]. If we team with SMEs in Guangdong and jointly advance this business, our power will be boundless,” he asserted.
