In 2022, Jinyuan Textile, with the help of China Unicom Fuzhou, started the 5G smart factory construction. In doing so, the company became one of the first enterprises in the Changle textile industry to apply a 5G+Industrial Internet framework.

In 2023, after the benchmark project in the textile industry, China Unicom further promoted 5G+Industrial Internet among other members of the Jinlun Textile Alliance. Based on China Unicom's 5G unified multi-campus private network, 5G applications have been successfully deployed for a dozen or so enterprises, including Jinlun Fiber, Changyuan Textile, Xinhuayuan Textile, Jinyuan Textile, and Huachun Colored Spinning. The solution provides unified planning, O&M, innovation, and access of multi-campus private networks, so that enterprises of the alliance can share data, quickly implement production visualization, production linkage, and smart logistics. This helps form a positive cycle of enterprise transformation and upgrade within the alliance.

The project was widely appreciated due to its innovation and practical value, and won the top prize in the 5G+Advanced Manufacturing category in the 6th "Bloom Cup" 5G Application Competition.
