Huawei Launches the First All-Cloud, Network-wide Smart Video Cloud Solution

- Driving the Evolution of Videos to Enable Actionable Intelligence that Improves City Safety

SHANGHAI, Sept. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- At Huawei Connect 2017, Huawei launched the industry's first all-cloud, network-wide smart video cloud solution, together with partners including Yitu, SenseTime, NetPosa, Harzone, MIMOS, and Qognify. The open cloud platform benefits from a vast ecosystem of partners delivering a wide-range of smart video analytic algorithms. This provides a strong computing engine that supports public safety video application services and accelerates video application innovation to help public safety organizations better serve and protect citizens.

Video is becoming important for public safety management and city governance. In China, over 60% of public safety cases are solved by using video. However, social video systems and security video systems operate independently, which makes video and data sharing difficult. Cross-regional crimes increased without a collaborative solution. There is a pressing need among public safety agencies to find more efficient and open video application capabilities.

Huawei's Smart Video Cloud constructs "One City, One Cloud" concept

Kevin Bai, General Manager of Government Solutions Department, Huawei Enterprise Business Group, said: "Huawei's Smart Video Cloud is based on an open cloud platform, which supports algorithms and applications from many partners to enable effective video sharing. Network-wide distributed smart analysis significantly increases video analysis efficiency; and in cross-departmental and cross-regional cases, the solution can rapidly respond with analysis results. Besides, converged Big Data technologies can uncover hidden insights from videos to support public safety agencies. The video cloud can also be used as a service for other organizations or institutions, to support traffic regulation, detect the crowd flow at scenic spots and other public services. This solution allows videos to play a disruptive role in public safety applications, evolving from purely surveillance to generating actionable intelligence which takes city safety to a new level."

In the past years, China has experienced a breakthrough in video networking, and promoting the construction of the video application ecosystem. Discussing Shenzhen's public safety management, Zhang Yong, Captain of Shenzhen's Public Security Bureau Video Surveillance Police Detachment, said: "Videos have played a key role in improving security for Shenzhen's citizens. We have worked with Huawei for the past two years to develop a comprehensive video platform, which has helped us solve countless cases. Huawei's video cloud, which combines centralized computing and edge computing capabilities, will help us further enhance video application services to ensure peace in Shenzhen's communities."

Huawei displays the latest C-C4ISR collaborative public safety solutions

At Huawei Connect 2017, under the theme of "New ICT, the Road to Collaborative Public Safety", Huawei displayed the latest C-C4ISR collaborative public safety solutions. Many new solutions and applications were showcased for the first time:

The Huawei Video Cloud Platform brought together 16 partners to demonstrate how a large-scale video application ecosystem enables a city council to distribute different tasks to different branch offices to perform video networking and smart analysis for dangerous object identification, facial recognition and other tasks remotely.

  • Applications from Vastio, Xinyi, MiningLamp, Zenith and other partners running on Huawei's Big Data platform create an information command and action-infused smart command center. Various usage scenarios were displayed, such as how to use Big Data and machine-learning to predict risks, prevent and alleviate traffic congestion.
  • An End-to-end digitized emergency response management solution helps public safety agencies efficiently manage emergencies and protect citizens.
  • An all-in-one station with the industry's highest level of integration increases deployment efficiency by 56%, and can achieve ubiquitous alarms, investigation, and monitoring coverage.
  • iOMC, a one-stop full-lifecycle service platform with unified operations and maintenance capabilities for safe cities, integrates the domain of every product, and performs unified monitoring and unified alarm dispatching based on the scenario.

The digital transformation of the public safety industry depends on the maturity of the applications market, and there will be greater demand for collaboration between these applications. Huawei has taken the lead to introduce a public safety industry enablement platform at HUAWEI CONNECT 2017. The platform serves as a smart warehouse market where capabilities commonly used in the public safety industry, including video smart analysis capabilities in video cloud, integrated communications capabilities, IoT, and Big Data, are available for delivery. The user or software provider can use a "building-block" approach to select their required capability components, making it easy to develop new service applications. The solution can empower the entire ecosystem and drive momentum to collaborative public safety, presenting new opportunities to help partners achieve business success while growing with Huawei.

HUAWEI CONNECT, Huawei's flagship event for the global ICT industry, is taking place at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre from September 5-7, 2017 under the theme of "Grow with the Cloud". For more information, please visit
