It is an honor, and more a responsibility that PATEO won multiple distinctions in one fell swoop on this occasion: on the one hand, it shoulders the trust and expectations of corporate clients and users, so it is imperative to reconstruct the lifestyle in mobile space; on the other, it also represents the image of Chinese technology companies, so it still needs to make continuous contributions to social development and the global IoT industry.
This is an age of turbulence in which the world is undergoing changes unseen in a century.
