Huawei has unveiled its Digital Platform to enable city-wide intelligence and sustainable development across the international smart city industry.

Showcased at Smart City Expo World Congress 2018, the platform is based on leading new ICT including artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), big data and cloud.

Huawei and its global partners demonstrated solutions based on the platform covering municipal management, public safety and environmental protection, as well as smart transportation, smart government, smart education, and smart agriculture.

These solutions are designed to facilitate city governance, improve public services, and enable industry innovation and best practices.

During the show, Huawei hosted its Global Smart City Summit 2018 with the theme of “Digital Platform Empowers Smart City+” to introduce its Digital Platform for smart cities.

Ma Yue, vice president of Huawei Enterprise Business Group and president of the Global Sales Department of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, said: “The development of a smart city is a highly complex project. As a world-leading ICT product and solution provider that delivers cloud-pipe-device synergy, Huawei can achieve the integration of cloud, IoT, video and edge computing with AI technologies, connecting the entire city nervous system – the ‘brain’ (command center), ‘central nervous system’ (network), and ‘peripheral nervous system’ (sensors).

“This constructs a ‘+AI Digital Platform’ that is open and fuels the digital transformation of cities of the future. Just like an operating system, the platform is compatible with different city sensors, creates a city digital twin, and supports diverse city applications.

“Huawei’s Digital Platform is highly efficient and open to facilitate collaboration with ecosystem partners. It also offers top-level design, integration, operations, service application, and other capabilities required for effective smart city development. In the future, Huawei’s +AI Digital Platform will form the smart foundation of more and more cities, promoting sustainable city development worldwide. We look forward to setting smart city benchmarks with customers and partners.”
