“The significance of the sci-tech innovation board is not limited to the capital level. It is the main battlefield facing the economy and aiming at the world’s scientific and technological frontier. This positioning means that companies that can go on the sci-tech innovation board should have a strong sense of mission, because they carry the needs of national economic transformation, the world’s leading scientific and technological PK, and the needs of people’s life improvement.” recently, Li Hong, President of Weisheng information, said in an exclusive interview with the reporter of Securities Daily.
Weisheng information is the first listed company to land on the science and innovation board in Hunan. It focuses on Internet of things solutions in the field of smart utilities. It is one of the earliest enterprises specializing in smart utility equipment manufacturing in China. It is committed to providing Internet of things products and solutions for power, water, gas, heat, security and other public utilities.
Landing on the scientific innovation board is only the starting point of Weisheng information’s journey. Li Hong said: “after landing on the science and innovation board, the company is more sensitive to the world’s cutting-edge technology. In the past, the company just tried to be the industry leader. Now it looks at the industry competition from a higher dimension and benchmarkes the company with the cutting-edge standards of world science and technology.”
“Five star housekeeper” of smart city
Now, querying water charges and paying fees are just hands-on things on mobile phones. Compared with the past, meter readers read water meters door-to-door, the efficiency improvement is self-evident.
“At present, the query of power consumption information can be accurate to every second, but it is not a simple process from traditional meter reading to intelligent data acquisition and analysis. It has gone through the struggle of countless R & D personnel day and night.” Zhong Xiyu, the Board Secretary of Weisheng information, told the Securities Daily.
Weisheng information is such a high-tech enterprise that realizes “cloud meter reading”. The company’s main products run through the perception layer, network layer and application layer of the Internet of things. The specific products of the sensing layer include electric monitoring terminal and water vapor heat sensing terminal; The specific products of network layer include communication module and communication gateway; The specific product of the application layer is the smart utility management system.
Zhong Xiyu explained: “If the Internet of things system is compared to the human body, Weisheng information is to provide the system with a complete set of core software and hardware of the nervous system for returning external information to the brain center. The sensing terminal with the chip as the core is like the nerve endings of the whole system. After collecting voltage, current and other information, it will be transmitted to the brain through power line carrier, micro power wireless and other intermediate media The next nerve is the edge computing link. The information will be classified through the processing of the edge computing system, and then uploaded to the cloud through the wireless communication public network, such as 4G and 5g, and distributed to different departments or systems, that is, the brain center of the whole system. “
In fact, in addition to providing complete solutions for smart energy management, Weisheng information has gradually expanded to fields such as smart fire fighting and smart street lamps. With the development of smart city, Weisheng information is more like a “five-star housekeeper” providing all-round life services.
Don’t underestimate that the smart water meter of Weisheng information has another wonderful function. “For example, if the company’s products are installed in the elderly, if the water consumption decreases abnormally for a period of time, the data background will alarm at the first time,” Zhong Xiyu said.
In the exhibition hall of Weisheng information, the reporter saw the company’s latest intelligent fire-fighting products. Different from traditional fire-fighting products, Weisheng information’s intelligent fire-fighting products move the early warning forward to prevent trouble. Zhong Xiyu said: “the company’s intelligent fire-fighting products can sense whether there are fire hazards through residual current and temperature, and give early warning in case of problems, so as to transfer fire prevention and control to advance.” it is reported that the intelligent fire-fighting products have been promoted on a trial basis in Changsha high tech Zone, and more than 100 fires have been effectively prevented during the trial operation.
In addition, the smart street lamp of Weisheng information also played an important security role in the recent rainstorm in Changsha. According to Zhong Xiyu, a variety of equipment such as lamps, environmental monitoring sensors and communication equipment are integrated and installed on the street lamp pole, which can effectively realize the real-time monitoring and reporting of leakage and other faults on the GIS map. At the same time, it can also effectively prevent accidents with potential safety hazards to citizens such as rain soaked lines and live lamp poles.
The hard core strength of the first science and technology innovation board Hunan enterprise
As the first listed company on the science and innovation board in Hunan, Weisheng information’s scientific and technological innovation ability has attracted much attention.

In addition, R & D investment is often regarded as the yardstick to measure the scientific and technological content of enterprises, which can be seen from the “hard core” strength of Weisheng information. According to the data, from 2017 to 2019, the R & D expenses of Weisheng information were 81.74 million yuan, 74.08 million yuan and 99.13 million yuan respectively, accounting for 8.21%, 7.13% and 7.97% of the operating revenue respectively.
Li Hong said: “Weisheng information is one of the few companies in the Internet of things industry that can cover the overall solutions of the Internet of things application layer, network layer and sensor layer at the same time. Our technology span is relatively comprehensive and our scientific and technological competitiveness is enough. In the future, the company will continue to promote scientific and technological innovation, optimization and upgrading, so as to achieve faster and better development.”
New infrastructure breeds new competition points of Internet of things
The national development and Reform Commission delineated the scope of “new infrastructure” for the first time, including information infrastructure, integration infrastructure and innovation infrastructure.
Li Hong believes that: “The new infrastructure provides Weisheng information with market growth space for accelerated development and technical guidance for continuous innovation and iteration. At present, China’s digital transformation and the Internet of things have penetrated into all aspects of social economy, including production services, work and life, clothing, food, housing and transportation. It is one of the important economic pillars, which provides Weisheng information with broader development space.”
“Based on a full range of IOT devices such as industry application software, data terminals, communication chips and intelligent sensing devices, we will gradually go deep into the application layer, network layer and sensing layer of the IOT technical architecture, establish product standards with first mover advantages, sensor devices with animal networking, network layer communication gateways and modules, and industry-oriented application level services Overall sales and rapidly expand market share, “Li Hong said.
It is worth mentioning that under the impact of the epidemic in the first quarter of this year, the trend of accelerating the information transformation of the Internet of things is becoming more and more obvious. Li Hong said: “the epidemic has accelerated the catalysis of the Internet of things company, which is an ‘organic in danger’ for the company, and also gave birth to a new competition point of Weisheng information.”
According to reports, while strengthening epidemic prevention and control, Weisheng information actively resumed work, seized market opportunities, and bucked the trend to complete the set goals for the first quarter. The first quarterly report shows that during the reporting period, the company realized an operating revenue of 239 million yuan, a year-on-year increase of 4.71%; The net profit attributable to the parent company was 32.71 million yuan, a year-on-year increase of 16.49%.
If the new infrastructure provides a place for Weisheng information to take off, the capital platform of the science and innovation board is the booster for the company to accelerate its rise. Li Hong said: “entering the capital market has solved the shortage of the company’s original production capacity, and the raised funds have further consolidated the company’s leading advantage in the Internet of things and R & D investment. In the future, the company will seize the opportunity of new infrastructure to become bigger and stronger, and does not rule out making appropriate mergers and acquisitions around the industrial chain.”
At the end of the interview, Li Hong looked forward to the strategic vision of Weisheng information in the next five years. “In the next five years, the company will strive to maintain the market volume and industry ranking at the first echelon. At the same time, it will continue to improve the revenue scale, market share and R & D transformation ability, strive to become a small unicorn in the Internet of things industry and bring better returns to investors.”
