31 August 2005 – North China Electric Power University (NCEPU) and Mobitex Technology AB are to jointly establish a wireless communication laboratory to develop dedicated private networks for the electric power industry.
The laboratory will be based at the NCEPU campus in Beijing and will primarily promote the use of wireless data within the Chinese power industry. Initial projects will focus on enhancing regional power distribution.
As well as developing a research programme for wireless technology use in the Chinese power industry, the partnership will also see graduates and undergraduates trained to use the technology.
Mobitex Technology AB was created in 2004 from a division divested by Ericsson.
