Buyers' Quotes

StarLine
Russia
Established in 1988, StarLine is a leading producer of smart security telematics systems for cars in Russia. It is authorised as the genuine security system supplier for many world-renowned car brands. I am looking for spare parts for our production machines, soldering equipment, batteries for DSRC transceivers and microcontrollers at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition). I have found six new suppliers mainly from Mainland China. I have decided to buy 40,000 pieces of batteries for DSRC transceivers per year from one of the new suppliers and place an order for US$2 million worth of microcontrollers with another new supplier. As production takes time, microcontrollers will be delivered to our company 50 weeks later. Thanks to the Hong Kong Government’s ‘0+3’ quarantine measure, I am happy to attend the Hong Kong Electronics Fair where I have found new business partners and met with my existing suppliers.

In view of the implementation of the ‘0+3’ arrangement, I have decided to attend the Symposium on Innovation & Technology in person to share with the audience the tech trends shaping the future of cities. Connectivity is across three domains – on-site computing, cloud computing and edge computing. We see edge computing is growing fast. Securing the perimeter of a network is obsolete given the millions of interconnected devices and systems. A new approach to security is needed, and zero trust networks have emerged as the standard. A big trend for us is to authenticate. When we look at video surveillance and how it is used in cities like Hong Kong, there are three areas, namely safety, efficiency and monitoring the environment. An example is the use of cameras in the Big Tree Animal Sanctuary and Adoption Centre in Hong Kong to detect wildfire. Listening to different views from different speakers at the symposium is inspiring. I am happy to see that the tech fairs look busy.
