The Beijing Municipal Government and China Mobile recently signed a cooperation agreement, aiming to build Beijing into a "wireless city" that represents the highest level in China and the world.

The two parties jointly released "residents' homepage," a platform for the construction of a wireless city based on mobile communication technology and providing convenience for Beijing residents.

With a mobile phone that can access the Internet, Beijing residents will be able to check real-time traffic status, make appointments with doctors and pay public utilities bills.

Lu Wei, vice-mayor of Beijing, noted that the wireless city construction represents the trend of the future development of cities and is a symbol of a city's level of development.

The construction of a wireless city in Beijing is based on large-scale WLAN coverage with the promotion of smart urban management projects, including smart transport, digital community, precision agriculture, smart tourism, energy-conservation management and security monitoring.
