Collaboration and technology delivers safe cities

February 2017 Integrated Solutions

New ICT technologies including the Internet of Things (IoT), mobile broadband, cloud computing, big data, and big video, are connecting environment, transportation, energy, electric power, finance, and manufacturing systems in cities. They are not only enabling the connection between networks and information, but also the connection between objects, between people and objects, and between people and ideas.

These connections help cities build comprehensive protection systems and prevent incidents before they occur by enabling the implementation of rapid, accurate decision-making processes through interdepartmental collaboration.

In the safe city industry, Huawei has launched end-to-end safe city solutions, serving 400 million people across more than 100 cities in over 30 countries. With leading new ICT and through open collaboration with our partners, Huawei develops and provides such solutions to support cities in becoming smart like a living organism that grows, learns and evolves.

Police and other security personnel need intelligent IT, communications, and video-analysis technologies to ensure public safety. Huawei's proven technologies multiply the effectiveness of personnel. Huawei has joined with global security specialists to provide end-to-end public safety solutions that provide convergent command and visualised dispatching to improve emergency response time.

Cloud platforms and intelligent analytics combine to improve both the effectiveness and efficiency of law enforcement and ensure a safe environment for the public.
