Hexagon and Huawei partner to deliver smart city solutions

January 11, 2016  - By 0 Comments

Hexagon AB has entered a strategic partnership with Huawei to deliver smart city solutions.

With most of the world’s population living in cities, safety and infrastructure challenges are at an all-time high. Hexagon and Huawei are working together to meet this global challenge by integrating Huawei’s communications hardware with Hexagon’s safety and infrastructure software solutions.

The combined solution improves interagency collaboration and leverages big data analytics to better predict, prepare for and respond to urban area challenges.

The smart city solutions are aimed at law enforcement, government, security personnel and other public service agencies around the world.

The focus on safety offers to cities connected command centers with integrated systems that maximize efficiencies in all preparedness and response areas.

Huawei’s contributions include technologies from its Safe City portfolio such as high-definition video surveillance, broadband trunking and IP-based conference calling systems.

Hexagon’s emergency response, utilities management and transportation software solution portfolio, which includes computer-aided dispatch, will provide the visibility and decision-support backbone to enable customers to think and act more nimbly.

Safety, including efficient response to crisis management, will continue to be a key challenge for urban management, especially in developing economies that are stimulating population movement into urban areas, according to Yan Lida, president of Huawei Enterprise Business Group.
