Fast-growing Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is changing the way we live and cities operate. The Smart City solution is a comprehensive system that features top-level design, integration, operations, service applications, and new ICT infrastructure. Cities use new ICT to sense, analyze, and converge key data from city operations and management systems, so that managers can intelligently respond to a variety of governance, livelihood, and business needs.
Fast, open exchange of data is key to building better cities — so a Smart City provider like Huawei focuses on ICT infrastructure and teams with partner companies to develop open, customer-centric solutions in order to build a sustainable Smart City ecosystem.
Huawei’s Smart City Solution incorporates cloud, network, and platform technologies, along with robust security. Huawei safeguards Smart Cities with six security mechanisms: Physical, network, host, virtualization, application, and data.
Cloud Data Center
Huawei provides a secure cloud data center that’s based on an open architecture. The data center integrates and shares city information resources to improve government service efficiency and decision-making accuracy.
Broadband and IoT Networks
Wired and wireless broadband networks enable ubiquitous broadband coverage that places services at the public’s fingertips.
The Huawei Internet of Things (IoT) network accommodates data services for new industry applications. Huawei improves IoT with a lightweight IoT operating system — LiteOS — in addition to a wide range of access gateways. Huawei is a major contributor to Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) standards organizations.
- The ICT Capability Disclosure Platform: Provides encapsulated and packaged ICT capabilities so that developers from any company can easily make open interfaces and quickly develop integrated Smart City service applications
- The Big Data Support Platform: Shares historical and real-time city data with all agencies
- The Application Enablement Platform: Combines Huawei applications (Big Data processing, security management, and video processing and analysis) with third-party applications — such as a Geographic Information System (GIS), public service, unified identification, and Single Sign-On (SSO). The result: Fast exchange of data resources, new software, and improved operation and maintenance for Smart City applications
Huawei safeguards Smart Cities with six security mechanisms: Physical, network, host, virtualization, application, and data. Security and reliability are ensured with proprietary chipsets and source code.
In short, Huawei builds Smart Cities with its complete product lines, world-leading technologies, open architectures, diversified industry solutions, and plentiful partner resources.
