The ZigBee Alliance, a global ecosystem of organizations creating wireless solutions for use in energy management, residential, commercial and consumer applications, today announced it has 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.
