Huawei Launched Its Latest IOC Solution, Building a "City Brain" to Enable Converged Management

[Barcelona, Spain, November 16, 2017] Huawei launched its latest Smart City Intelligent Operation Center (IOC) Solution at the Smart City Expo World Congress 2017 (SCEWC). The solution builds the "city brain", a converged management center, to share data and services.

City management is evolving from traditional vertical administration modes to a new mode that centers on convergence and sharing. IOC plays a core role in converged Smart City management. The IOC solution that Huawei launched this time leveraged new technologies, such as cloud computing, IoT, ultra broadband, Big Data, and artificial intelligence, to close the monitoring-alarm-decision-execution loop.

This solution consists of four major parts:

  • Infrastructure platform: government cloud, Big Data cluster, and desktop cloud
  • Big Data and service support platform: data collection, exchange, integration, analysis, and display
  • Integrated communications platform: contact center, visual intercom, videoconferencing, video surveillance, and unified communications
  • Service applications: city status display, data analysis, decision support, linked command, monitoring & alarm, and event management

The IOC uses IoT sensors to collect data from the physical world and sends data to the digital world for analysis. City management personnel make decisions based on the analysis results, bringing data back to the physical world in smart actions to close the loop. 

The city dashboard displays the overall status of city operations, including real-time details of specific fields and areas. For example, the IOC displays the distribution of water, electric power, heat, and gas resources in a region, allowing maintenance personnel to monitor the status of transportation pipelines and intersections. 

Big Data analysis supports smart decision-making. The supervision department detects risky enterprises using enterprise profiles and evaluation models. The economic department convenes quarterly meetings to analyze economic operation, discussing all macro and micro indexes. The water resource department analyzes the real-time weather data, information collected from IoT sensors, and historical records to specify flooding risks. The municipal government uses population movement date to improve city planning, and event management processes to fairly assess employee performance. The gas company utilizes IoT sensors to monitor dangerous places like gas pipelines, Big Data to detect abnormities, and the unified communications system to send warning messages, preventing incidents from happening. IoC enables linked command, collaborative dispatch, and converged management across departments.
