Huawei looking to create a ‘nervous system’ of smart cities with new release
IoT News is a practical resource providing news, analysis and opinion on the burgeoning Internet of Things ecosystem, from standardisation, to business use cases, and development opportunities. We take the best research and put our own spin on it, report from the frontline of the industry, as well as feature contributions from companies at the heart of this revolution.

Huawei, along with Weifeng City, has developed a model based on Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) and Huawei OceanConnect IoT platform, and is also planning to create a “nervous system” of smart cities.

The NB-IoT city-aware network uses a “one network, one platform, N applications” construction model utilising IoT, cloud computing, Big Data, and other next-generation ICT. The city-level IoT platform is developed for the city to enable unified access, management, and data collection from various IoT-enabled sensory equipment.

In addition, the Chinese telecom giant and the city government also established the Huawei-Weifang IoT Innovation R&D Centre and the Huawei-Weifang Smart City IoT Industry Alliance. These initiatives are designed to enhance and expand industrial applications of NB-IoT and drive continuous improvement of city management and public services. Huawei has already enabled smart lighting, which is based on standardised NB-IoT and the first of its kind in the country.

The IoT network includes eight value-added services along with a remote control system, Wi-Fi hotspots, video surveillance, environment monitoring, and vehicle quantity surveillance and statistics. The smart lighting system monitors the status of street lamps in real-time, adjusts brightness automatically, and detects faults, among other functions, saving 80% of electricity and 90% of maintenance costs. It also provides scientific and accurate data analysis for city management.

Furthermore, Huawei has been added by the Z-Wave Alliance to its Board of Directors. The company joins principal members ADT, Alarm.com, FIBARO, Ingersoll-Rand, Jasco Products, LEEDARSON, LG Uplus, Nortek Security & Control, SmartThings, and Sigma Designs.
