Huawei Releases C-C4ISR Collaborative Public Safety Solutions at Global Safe City Summit 2017

During the Huawei Global Safe City Summit, Huawei introduced the C-C4ISR Collaborative Public Safety Solutions, which will drive digital transformation of the global public safety industry.

Using new ICT such as Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, mobile broadband, and Software-Defined Networking (SDN), as well as cloud-pipe-device synergy, the solution will drive efficient collaboration among governmental agencies as well as between governmental agencies and citizens." 

 

Huawei and Pegasus Sign a Global MoU to Bring Greater Safety and Security to Smart Cities

At the Huawei Global Safe City Summit, Huawei entered a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Pegasus, a DarkMatter company, to develop and deploy joint smart and safe city big data solutions tailored to customer requirements. The agreement will see the companies jointly develop technology and professional capabilities, including but not limited to products and services leveraging Huawei’s Public Safety Cloud solution and Pegasus’ big data analytics applications.

Sun Zhenjian, Huawei IT Product Line Public Safety Solution Director, said, "We hope that Huawei and Pegasus can establish a long-term cooperation relationship, integrate our strengths, and develop innovative services and solutions together.

According to the United Nations' statisticalanalysis1, mortality and property losses caused by disasters and incidents is growing. Many factors, such as a lack of disaster assessment and preparedness, poor early warning capabilities, and lack of cross-agency collaborative command and dispatch, bring various challenges to crisis and disaster management. At the summit, Huawei shared how it has cooperated with industry-leading disaster management partner GSAFETY to release the Crisis and Disaster Management Solution integrating IoT and Big Data full-lifecycle for the first time. The solution builds the infrastructure platforms through front-end IoT perception, agile networks, and cloud-based data centers. The solution integrates many modules, such as intelligent surveillance, Big Data, IoT platform, critical communications, and converged command, to support the prevention, preparation, detection, warning, handling and rescue, and summary components of crisis and disaster management. This significantly improves government emergency departments' practical capabilities, better protects human lives and properties from disasters, such as the typhoon, flood, and hazardous chemical leakage, and helps people take preventive measures. 

With the "Openness, Collaboration, and Shared Success" principle of the Huawei Safe City Solution, Huawei is committed to closely cooperating with world-leading partners in many industries, such as consultation and planning, system integration, and software applications. Huawei works with partners to develop a mature Safe City ecosystem and build one-stop Safe City solutions. Nowadays, Huawei Safe City solutions have been serving about 800 million people in more than 200 cities of over 80 countries in multiple regions, such as Europe, Africa, and Asia Pacific.
