Hexagon and Huawei Partner to Deliver Smart City Solutions

November 17, 2015 — Hexagon AB, a leading global provider of information technologies that drive productivity and quality across geospatial and industrial enterprise applications, today announced a strategic partnership with Huawei, a global leader in information and communications technology (ICT) solutions, to deliver smart city solutions.

With the majority 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 head-on, integrating Huawei’s communications hardware with Hexagon’s safety and infrastructure software solutions. The combined solution improves inter-agency collaboration and leverages big data analytics to better predict, prepare for, and respond to urban area challenges.

Safety is a primary focus of the combined solution, offering cities connected command centres with integrated systems that maximise efficiencies in all preparedness and response areas. Recognised globally as the most reliable partner in the ICT industry, 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.

“Huawei’s technologies, expertise and global coverage, especially in emerging market areas, nicely complement our ability to deliver smart city solutions to law enforcement, government, security personnel and other public service agencies around the world,” said Ola Rollén, Hexagon President and CEO.

“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 these areas”, said Yan Lida, president of Huawei Enterprise Business Group. “Together with Hexagon, the global authority on safety and infrastructure solutions, our extensive ICT technologies that help architect Safe City infrastructure will help make societies safer.”
