IoT, Driving Verticals to Digitization

IoT relies on ICT to reshape traditional industries. By integrating the physical and digital worlds, IoT has the power to revolutionize future industries. IoT can streamline business processes, boost productivity, and give customers better products and services while providing potential for grander innovations. After years of technological advancement and market development, IoT is poised to unearth a world of untapped ICT opportunities.


Scenario-based Industry Solutions

NB-IoT Smart Parking

In the Shanghai International Tourism and Resorts Zone, Huawei teamed up with China Unicom, Shanghai branch, to construct the world's first 4.5G-based NB-IoT network covering a large contingent area. The two parties provided an end-to-end smart parking solution comprising of terminals, base stations, servers, and applications on smartphones. In parking lot P1, they deployed more than 300 NB-IoT enabled smart vehicle detectors equipped with years of battery life. The vehicle detectors supported plug-and-play on the ubiquitous and reliable NB-IoT network provided by China Unicom. Deployment costs were significantly lower than expected. Users can perform parking space queries and reservations, navigation, mobile payment, and parking lot management on smartphones. This addresses difficulties in locating parking spots and relieves traffic congestion.

NB-IoT Smart Water Meter Reading

Huawei cooperated with Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA) and South East Water in Australia, to run automatic meter reading beta tests. Automatic meter reading commercialization is scheduled to begin early next year. This solution features a massive number of connections, wide coverage, and long battery life. Customers can identify water pipeline leakage early on. Household water meters will automatically report data on a regular basis, reducing fault probabilities and the operating expense (OPEX).

Connected City Lighting

Huawei’s Connected City Lighting Solution connects street lamps to the IoT and adopts a GIS-based management system, enabling cities to enhance the control and performance of every street lamp. The solution provides municipal managers with status information on each lamp on any given street and enables precise control of on/off switches and the brightness of individual street lamps, allowing on-demand lighting and a reduction in energy consumption by up to 80%.

Building Efficiency Management System (BEMS)

Huawei helped Singtel Optus Pty Limited (the second largest telecommunications company in Australia) successfully deploy the BEMS Solution. The solution provides various energy consumption control policies and supports remote centralized management, reducing energy consumption in lighting and control by 62.5%.

Agricultural Machinery Predictive Maintenance

Huawei assisted Deutsche Telekom that helped HOLMER Maschinenbau GmbH implement predictive maintenance for agricultural machinery. This solution reduces the machinery failure rate by 70%, lowers the maintenance expense by 30%, and greatly improves customer satisfaction.

Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)

Huawei AMI Solution helped Ikeja of Nigeria improve electricity usage efficiency, lower line loss by 31%, and reduce the arrears rate to zero.

eLTE Gas Detection

Huawei's eLTE Gas Detection Solution improves the HSE level for SINOPEC Jiujiang Company. SINOPEC Jiujiang Company has a large factory with various petroleum refinery devices and complicated pipeline layout. Poisonous substance leakage or even explosion will occur once a pipeline is broken. Huawei eLTE network covers the entire factory and transmits real-time information collected from pipelines to the monitor center. This enables the monitor center to analyze data for preventive maintenance, reducing the workload and improving the responsiveness.

Internet of Vehicle (IoV)

The Internet of Things (IoT) is forging the digital economic era. Consumers are replacing vendors as the architects of production, and their demands are creating services from what used to be products. ICT will emerge as a factor of production rather than remain a support system, and the integration of the physical and digital worlds will deepen.

Smart Home

IoT exists in a massive, sophisticated ecosystem that requires joint investment and collaboration between ICT solution providers, enterprises, research institutes, and governments. This in turn requires complex partnership agreements to ensure that this ecosystem thrives.

Industry Ecosystem

In the IoT field, Huawei opens up network capabilities to build open business ecosystems. Huawei is integrating IoT solutions with industries and works with partners to accelerate the commercialization of the IoT industry.


FAW: Building A Safer, Smarter, and More Open IoV Platform

China FAW Group Corporation, China FAW or FAW as an abbreviated version, has quickly gained a reputation as one of the largest automotive enterprises in China having provided 50 years of exemplary service. The company is currently successfully ranked at 107 as part of the 2015 Fortune Global 500 publication with revenue reaching 80.1945 billion USD. As a major contributor among the top four automobile enterprises in China, FAW boasts healthy cooperation and cultivates collaboration between tens of thousands of employees to achieve more recent approximated revenues nearing one hundred billion dollars. The current enjoyed prosperity position of the company's attributed success is largely based upon the acceptance of informatization.

Huawei Partnered with Shanghai Unicom to Pilot 4.5G NB-IoT

Before the opening of MWC Shanghai in 2015, Huawei, together with Shanghai Unicom and China Unicom Network Technology Research Institute, initiated the pilot operation of the first CIoT technology based on 4.5G NB-IoT. This momentous launch marked a pioneering achievement with the combined presentation of a pilot project featuring intelligent parking. Launch of the pilot technology indicates a shift towards a new CIoT technology based on NB-IoT. This transformation helps China Unicom accelerate efforts in the creation of a new industrial layout to embrace the new era of IoT, and match the "Internet+" national strategy.

Constructing an IoT-enabled Building

All countries have recognized the importance of conserving energy and reducing emissions. This has given rise to an increasing number of green buildings that greatly reduce carbon emissions. However, re-planning is almost impossible for many existing buildings, especially when it comes to redesign the high- and low-voltage current systems of old buildings.

Huawei Helps Sinopec Jiujiang Company Build a Wireless Intelligent Factory

Sinopec Jiujiang Company is a subsidiary of Sinopec Group and is the only large petrochemical enterprise in Jiangxi Province. It is China's first pilot enterprise that has built an automated, digital, visualized, and integrated intelligent factory using a world-class IT system to improve productivity, secure operation, emergency response, risk prevention, and scientific decision-making capabilities.
