Huawei Announces Safe City Compact Solution to Protect Citizens in Small and Medium Cities
[Shanghai, China, October 11, 2018] At HUAWEI CONNECT 2018, Huawei Government & Public Utility Sector hosted the Public Safety International Media Roundtable under the theme of “+ Intelligence, Making Safer Cities”, attracting around 10 countries’ journalists from Latin America, Europe, Middle East, Central Asia, Africa and Asia to participate. During the roundtable, Huawei introduced the investment and global development in Public Safety, and shared global best practices highlighting how Huawei’s C-C4ISR Safe City Solution is enabling address safety threats and protect citizens in countries including Kenya, Germany, Mauritius and Serbia. Huawei also officially recommended its Safe City Compact Solution for small and medium sized cities，and its innovative video product for public safety.
Global Implementation of Collaborative Public Safety
With the increasing frequency of crime, terrorism and natural disasters, public safety has become a critical issue for global cities. Huawei’s C-C4ISR Safe City Solution, which was launched in 2017, has been successfully deployed in 230 cities across more than 90 countries and regions, serving close to 1 billion people. The following are some examples:
- In Pakistan, the government of Punjab established the Punjab Safe Cities Authority (PSCA) in 2015. The first project of the PSCA was to work with Huawei to build a Smart & Safe City system for Lahore. The PSCA established a Safe City Integrated Command & Communication Centre (IC3) on an area of 76,000 square feet by leveraging cutting-edge ICT technologies, such as cloud and Big Data. The Safe City Center has the largest comprehensive Safe City architecture in the world.
- In Germany, Huawei worked with DVV to build a government cloud, which will be used in public services, such as education, healthcare, transportation, and social safety.
- In 2017, Huawei signed a Safe City Strategic Cooperation Agreement with the Ministry of Interior of Serbia. Phase 1 of the project involved enhancing the Command Center and Data Center in Belgrade and the deployment of a video content management system. Since its implementation five months ago, the project has helped the police department solve several major criminal cases and ensured the safety and security of major sports events.
- In Mauritius, Huawei is helping the government to build an all-cloud safe city. The “one cloud, one pool” project will help Mauritius Police improve emergency handling efficiency by 60%.
Safe City Compact Solution Helps Small and Medium Cities Drive Urban Safety
Following the success of Huawei’s C-C4ISR Safe City Solution, the new Safe City Compact solution focus on the requirements of global cities with small and medium sized populations. While facing many of the same safety challenges as larger cities, small and medium cities are struggling to increase safety and security on limited resources.
To address this challenge, Huawei has developed a Safe City Compact Solution to help cities with 100,000 to 500,000 citizens quickly create a safe environment and keep pace with evolving threats. Based on a cloud architecture, this compact, converged and intelligent solution will deliver core safe city capabilities such as Converged & Visualized Command, Intelligent Video Cloud and Multimedia Critical Communication. Modular in nature, it also supports flexible assembly and easy software integration through plug-and-play. The solution has been successfully deployed in Chile, Colombia, and Philippines.
Innovative video products make intelligent safe city video processing
The portfolio of "CloudIVS + Software-Defined Cameras" is the key to building an next-generation intelligent safe city solution. In 2018, Huawei innovatively launched the industry's first Software-Defined Camera with on-demand definition, layered intelligence and continuous evolution, which is an important milestone of video surveillance to entry into the era of artificial intelligence. Huawei software-defined cameras have efficient performance on major scenarios of public safety, such as face checkpoints, vehicle micro-checkpoints, and situational awareness. At the same time, if the software-defined cameras work with Huawei's All-cloud CloudIVS platform, who could achieve more excellent performance of resources, algorithm and data coordination, the portfolio of "CloudIVS + Software-Defined Cameras" could create more efficient multi-dimensional video storage and intelligent analysis, like local computing, device-cloud synergy, and data search within seconds.
Roy Chen, vice-president of Government & Public Utility Sector, said“Huawei aims to create an ecosystem platform to make institutions, communities, and citizens work together to counter threats using the power of ICT technologies and digital transformation, and to promote the economic development of cities.”
C-C4ISR：Collaborative-Command, Control, Communication, Cloud, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance
Huawei is committed to working with customers in the long term and takes a future-oriented approach to drive enterprise digital transformation through the power of the platform. So far, 211 of the Fortune Global 500 companies (including 48 Fortune Global 100 companies) have selected Huawei as their digital transformation partner.
