Huawei to boost ME city surveillance capabilities

DUBAI, October 6, 2016

Huawei, a leading global ICT solutions provider, said it is working with Intelligent Security Systems (ISS), a leader in video management and intelligence solutions, to provide safe city surveillance capabilities to law enforcement agencies around the Middle East region.

The collaboration will see improved public safety and security for the region through intelligent surveillance systems that can proactively identify potential threats before they even occur, said a statement from the company.
The ISS will share with Huawei its expertise on the integration of smart video surveillance camera solutions to complement Huawei’s innovative cloud-based intelligent surveillance infrastructure. The enhanced surveillance systems will be jointly developed and tested at the Huawei Open-Lab Center in Dubai, UAE, it added.
Richard Cai, director of Open-Lab Middle East, Huawei Enterprise Middle East, said: “Our company’s partnership with ISS reiterates our commitment to developing industry-specific, customer focused solutions that embrace new ICT through a collaborative ecosystem of partners.”

“The security company’s video solution is matched to our cloud-based intelligent surveillance solution that provides 24/7 high-definition surveillance that uses low bandwidth and supports continuous video recording,” he noted.

“The joint solution will deliver intelligent surveillance capabilities that will enable law enforcement agencies in the region to receive automated, video-based alerts of potential threats, reduce operational costs and enjoy faster, more efficient response times to emergency situations,” he added.
Huawei’s video content management software also provides video summary, intelligent searching as well as facial recognition, helping law enforcement authorities to find critical information quickly and easily from huge recording video pools. This software means faster identification of suspected perpetrators that means more efficient ways of preventing further crimes, said a statement.
Mohammed Zaheer, regional director – Middle East and India, ISS, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Huawei to deliver smart video technology and automated solutions for security clients.”

“We bring to this collaboration the learnings from deploying intelligent video solutions in more than 53 countries worldwide. Our company values Huawei’s leadership in the ICT domain and we are honoured to be part of their partner ecosystem,” he said.

Huawei’s portfolio of public safety solutions includes innovation in high definition video surveillance, broadband trunking, multi-media dispatching and intelligent analytics, which are delivering better situational awareness to emergency service agencies, said a statement.

These solutions split across six central Safe City Solution offerings: convergent command centre, cloud-based intelligent video surveillance, smart road safety, 4G mission-critical broadband trunking, agile communication network and secured cloud data centre solution, it said.
Huawei safe city solutions already provide safety and security to over 400 million people in more than 100 cities across 30 countries. The company is committed to supporting governments across the Middle East region in their vision to create smarter and safer cities for the wellbeing and happiness of citizens, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
