Huawei awarded for Kenyan smart city

June 2016 Editor's Choice, News, Government and Parastatal (Industry)

Based on its analysis of the smart city market, Frost & Sullivan recognised Huawei Technologies with the 2015 Kenyan Frost & Sullivan Competitive Strategy Innovation and Leadership Award. Huawei’s smart city solution provides comprehensive on-site information with visual command and intelligent analysis functions for 360-degree security. By utilising a web of interconnected devices, software and cloud storage systems, the company enables the public and private service sectors to work together more effectively.

Huawei’s deployment of a new communications network, which links over 1800 surveillance cameras with 195 bureaux and 7600 police officers in Nairobi, is of great strategic importance in terms of national and economic security. The National Police Service Commission of Kenya, for example, has a high-speed private broadband network that partly relies on the company’s propriety wireless enhanced long-term evolution (eLTE) solution.

“The wireless infrastructure links the National Police Service Commission’s command centres with over 1500 high-definition cameras in downtown Nairobi. Furthermore, it supports more than 200 cameras that are installed at city checkpoints and several wireless devices distributed to officers in the field,” said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst, Joanita Roos. “Thus, authorities can conduct panoramic video surveillance of Nairobi’s urban centre, as well as maintain a highly-agile command and dispatch setup that runs on satellite-based global positioning system (GPS) and software-based geographic information system (GIS).”

Additionally, with the video cloud storage platform that Huawei offers, cross-agency video sharing is possible. The platform meets multiple service needs, including real-time surveillance, video browsing and evidence collection.

Over and above the video cloud storage platform, Huawei provides sophisticated analytics tools to improve authorities’ ability to identify, classify and match stored video data. The company has also secured its safe city solution against cyber-attacks and ensured it is cost-effective.
