Huawei Customers Win Prestigious Awards at Smart City Expo World Congress 2017
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 21 - 11 - 2017

Four Huawei customers were recognized for their outstanding Smart City achievements and have won or were finalists for esteemed awards at the Smart City Expo World Congress 2017 (SCEWC).
Shenzhen in China won the Safe City Award with its Smart Transportation project, and Yanbu in Saudi Arabia won the Data and Technology Award with its Smart City project. In addition, Weifang in China was one of the finalists for the City Award with its Smart City 3.0 project, while Cameroon was nominated for the Innovation Idea Award with its solar energy project. These cities have all leveraged Huawei's Smart City solutions customized to meet city management needs across different regions and at different levels of development. The solutions drive digital transformation to improve city administration, create sustainable economies and enable efficient public services.
With 309 entries from 58 countries for this year's World Smart City Awards, the competition is greater than ever, reflecting the diversity and innovation of Smart City development across the world.
Yan Lida, President of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, said: "The ultimate goals of a Smart City are to enable good governance, promote industry development and deliver benefits for the people. Together with our customers and partners, we are moving towards achieving these goals by improving city governance and service capabilities, helping to develop the local economy and stimulate innovation, and making cities more livable.
Drawing from the world's best Smart City practices, we have found that success is driven by Smart City development being a priority for the government, having a strong and capable Smart City project team, long-term and stable investment, and working with a leading digital partner that helps design top-level plans to address governmental needs and has an open and robust ecosystem. We are honored that Huawei has gained the trust of our customers and become their preferred partner for Smart City development.
Leveraging leading new ICT such as cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence to build a unified IoT platform, communications platform, cloud data center and smart command center, Huawei creates a nervous system for a Smart City, which enables the Smart City to become a living organism that grows sustainably and constantly evolves. We would like to congratulate Shenzhen and Saudi Arabia on receiving World Smart City Awards 2017, and we look forward to working with more cities to help them realize their Smart City dreams."
Safe City Award winner: Shenzhen Traffic Police – Global-First All-Scenario Intelligent Transportation Solutions Helps Building "Traffic Brain" for Cities
Shenzhen Traffic Police worked with Huawei to create the city's traffic system and ensure the safety of the city. Huawei helped Shenzhen Traffic Police by creating a top-level design and a comprehensive plan designed to improve the city's transportation capacity, reduce traffic accidents and guarantee drivers' safety.
The Traffic Police leveraged a Big Data platform that comprises a data resource pool and a deep learning system to build the city's "traffic brain", which has improved city traffic flow visibility and adaptive control of traffic lights, enhancing road capacity by 8%. The unified Big Data platform centrally processes traffic data to enhance data usage by 200%, and the Artificial Intelligence (AI) application assists law enforcement, raising the image recognition rate 10-fold to increase traffic violation processing. This greatly eases traffic congestion in the city, enhancing drivers' travel experience.
Data and Technology Award winner: Royal Comission Smart City Project
In 2016, Saudi Arabia launched Vision 2030 strategy, which is built around three themes: a vibrant society, a thriving economy and an ambitious nation. Especially making the city sustainable development is one of the key goals. In support of Yanbu's digital transformation into the nation's first Smart City under this Vision, Huawei deployed a comprehensive optical network to cover all residential communities, enterprise campuses, and the key public areas in the
city. In addition, Huawei works with its partners to offer Yanbu many smart applications, such as smart parking, smart weighing, smart rubbish bins, smart energy management, smart streetlight, stadium crowd analysis, and smart manhole cover. These applications significantly increased the city's management efficiency, for example, reducing road maintenance costs by 20%, cutting down public lighting costs by 30%, and raising trash disposal efficiency by 30%. Additionally, the Royal Commission for Yanbu worked with Huawei to build an Integrated Communication Platform (ICP), the city's management system. This system consists of an IoT data platform, Big Data platform, information integration platform, and converged command center. The ICP assists Yanbu in intelligent public infrastructure management, emergency response, and smart policing, optimizing city administration.
