Huawei Creates a Smart City Nervous System for More Than 100 Cities with Leading New ICT
Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Shares Global Practices at SCEWC 2017 in Barcelona

BARCELONA, Spain, Nov. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei is participating in the Smart City Expo World Congress 2017 (SCEWC) in Barcelona under the theme of "Leading New ICT, Creating a Smart City Nervous System," highlighting how a Smart City can be like a living organism that works seamlessly to continuously learn and enhance the city's services. Together with its global partners, Huawei is demonstrating joint ICT solutions to connect the digital and physical worlds across city administration, public services, and industrial economies. Using new ICT including cloud computing, Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT), and Artificial Intelligence (AI), these solutions drive unified coordination, cross-sector collaboration, and intelligent analysis for effective management of city services.

Alongside the SCEWC, Huawei hosted the Global Smart City Summit, where representatives from the European Union, international standards organizations, world-renowned consultancies, relevant research institutions and leading Smart Cities shared their insights and experiences in driving Smart City development with over 400 city administrators from around the world.

Huawei Creates a Smart City Nervous System to make the city as an organic life body

Becoming a Smart City involves the digital transformation of a city to address challenges in the physical world. This demands data-driven systems that combine management and IoT data to help authorities manage the city and enable the physical and digital worlds to be integrated. Smart City development requires a fundamental change to city administration and for the development to flourish it needs to be a priority for the government. In addition, there must be a strong and capable Smart City project team, long-term and stable investment, and city leaders need to partner with a leading digital provider that can facilitate the transformation.

Yan Lida, President of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, said: "A Smart City is like a living organism, which is powered by a nervous system. This Smart City nervous system comprises a "brain" [the control center] and "peripheral nerves" [the network and sensors], gathering real-time information about the status of the city, transmitting the data, enabling the "brain" to analyze and make informed decisions, delivering feedback commands, and ultimately carrying out intelligent actions. This creates a seamless link between the physical and digital worlds. Leveraging leading new ICT such as cloud computing, IoT and AI, Huawei is committed to creating a strong nervous system that powers Smart Cities. With our innovations and investment in various technologies, we develop an open platform for Smart Cities, which is compatible with various devices and supports a wide range of applications. We aim to be the rich soil that supports the robust and sustainable development of Smart Cities. Huawei is one of the few ICT solution providers in the industry that can offer end-to-end cloud-pipe-device solutions, leading the way to connecting the physical and digital worlds. We will continue to work together with our ecosystem of partners to create top-level designs addressing city administrators' needs and achieving the ultimate goals of a Smart City -- to enable good governance, promote industry development and deliver benefits for the people."

Huawei Releases Intelligent Operation Center to Global Audience

During the Global Smart City Summit, Huawei released the Intelligent Operation Center (IOC), a solution that functions as the "brain" of the Smart City, connecting the digital and physical worlds.

The underlying infrastructure of the IOC comprises distributed cloud data centers and ubiquitous city networks that collect, integrate and share city information, enabling real-time visibility of the city. The IOC uses an Integrated Communications Platform (ICP) that enables intelligent collaboration across city functions and emergency dispatch of all services. By using Big Data, machine learning and AI technologies, the IOC delivers valuable insights to facilitate city planning and management of vital services such as transportation and security.

Huawei also provides wired and wireless broadband, IoT platforms, and LiteOS -- a secure, lightweight and intelligent operating system, that serve as the peripheral nervous system, collecting data to assist the brain in making decisions, which bring about changes in the physical world.

Smart City Evolution Requires E2E Interconnection and a Leading Digital Partner that Can Offer All-Round Support

With 13 OpenLabs around the globe, Huawei and its partners conduct joint innovation to build sustainable ecosystems and drive localized Smart City solutions. The OpenLabs offer an open end-to-end one-stop ICT Infrastructure platform where partners can test and verify their Smart City solutions in actual network environment, leverage research, marketing and solutions delivery, and experience best practices and solutions for Smart Cities. Huawei is committed to building innovative platforms for partners to constantly evolve their technologies and the company continuously invests in the development of a thriving ecosystem.

With its complete ICT capabilities and robust ecosystem, Huawei can provide all-round ICT support to city administrators. Currently, Huawei's Smart City solutions are serving over 120 cities in more than 40 countries around the globe. In China alone, Huawei participated in the development of 26 Smart City evaluation criteria, leading the development of 9 of them.

Huawei is demonstrating comprehensive Smart City solutions together with SAP, Honeywell, Hexagon, Chinasoft International, Esri, RuiCheng Technology and other industry partners at the SCEWC, including the following:

    --  Huawei leverages its IoT platform, LiteOS operating system, and advanced
        technologies such as Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), eLTE-IoT and AI to build
        ubiquitous sensing systems. Smart applications, such as smart rubbish
        bins, smart streetlight, smart watering, smart building, smart metering,
        and smart healthcare, improve city administration efficiency, public
        security, and people's livelihoods. Visualized and collaborative city
        administration and enhanced emergency response and decision-making
        efficiency are achieved with the support of an IOC, which comprises a
        cloud data center, a Big Data service support platform, and an ICT
        application enablement platform.


    --  Huawei's cloud technology supports the development of innovative
        administration services for governments and innovative public services
        for residents. Services include but are not limited to smart government,
        smart healthcare, smart education, smart electricity, and smart
        transportation, raising the public satisfaction.
    --  Huawei launched the Smart Campus Solution to drive industrial evolution
        and development, promoting the integration of digitization and
        intelligence. In Dunhuang in China, Huawei's cloud data center, Big Data
        platform, and IoT technology have improved Silk Road tourism service
        quality and intelligent public services. In 2016, the annual number of
        tourists increased to 8 million, a 32% growth compared to 2015. Scenic
        spots are now capable of hosting 40% more tourists with 20% less service
        personnel.
