The eLTE unified network is used to carry multiple types of services and connect various "unconnected" terminals, sensors, from integrated law enforcement terminals for grid administrators, to the wellhead water level sensor all over the street corner, enabling comprehensive convergence of city management services from multi-functional environmental monitoring terminals to telemedicine monitoring terminals to provide a solid foundation for big data analysis and scientific decision-making in cities.

The Gaoqing government and Huawei jointly built a smart city showcase site and practiced the initial goals step by step with operational, replicable, and scalable construction mode and the solution are moving from Shandong to the world, eg: Nanjing government network, Qiqihar wireless eyesight, and Rivas smart city in Spain and so on.

With the successful practice of the eLTE wireless private network solution in the smart city field, eLTE is bringing smart cities into more than 2,800 county administrative regions and more cities around the world. By improving the city governance level, boosting the citizen happiness index, and promoting industry transformation and upgrade, "wisdom" is not only the patent of developed cities, but also the city to realize the "county strong, the world thriving".
