Leading New ICT, Make Cities Smarter

Abstract: Leading ICT is the foundation on which smart cities are built. Together with industry-leading partners, Huawei uses new ICT technologies such as cloud computing, virtualization, Big Data, Geographic Information System (GIS), the Internet of Things (IoT), and the ecosystem Software Development Kit (eSDK) to create comprehensive, end-to-end Smart City solutions. These solutions provide a rich variety of intelligent applications to enhance municipal management, improve government services, and promote the development of industry and the people. Solutions include the Safe City, smart city operations centers, one-stop government services, smart transportation, and smart healthcare.

Industry Cases

Smartly Connected

Connecting people is one of the smartest aspects of a Smart City, especially when it comes to providing Wi-Fi connectivity to tens of thousands of people at public gatherings such as football matches. This high-density wireless connectivity was not possible a few years ago, and now football venues across Europe are connecting up. Connecting people around a shared event showcases the benefits of Smart City connectivity — for both the people attending the event and the event’s organizers.

Kenyan Safe City Can Now Sleep Better

In the face of terrorist attacks from the Somali Youth League, the Kenyan government urgently needed a Safe City solution to improve safety across the country. The Ministry of Interior chose Safaricom, the country’s largest telecom company, for the project. Safaricom financed, built, and will manage the project for the Kenyan government for 5 years. They chose Huawei to deliver end-to-end solutions with stringent requirements for solution deliverability and pre-integration.
