I wonder if there is a connection between SJ-11 and the JB-6 (YG-2/4/7/11) family of satellites.
Four JB-6 were launched in 2007-2010 into sun-synchronous orbits with LTDN (local time of descent node) 09:00, 11:00, 13:30 and 15:00. All the four maneuvered in December 2010 to the same altitude. YG-7 made another small correction in March 2013.
Six SJ-11 were launched in 2009-2014 into sun-synchronous orbits with LTDN 09:00, 10:45, 14:00 and 15:45. Looks similar, doesn't it? Small maneuvers were seen for #02 and #01, the latter on March 22, 2014.
I don't think SJ-11 is the follow-on system for JB-6 but it may be an addition with separate functions.

BEIJING, June. 23 (China Space News) — Shijian-11-06 satellite was delivered in-orbit to its user recently.

All indexes of the satellite had met the development requirements and some indicators better than the design requirements during the testing.

The customer has given high remarks on the development, launch and in-orbit testing of the satellite.

Now the satellite is operating stably in a good condition.
