Huawei recently held its Smart City Summit 2017 in Budapest, where it covered opportunities for Eastern Europe to "stay abreast of the latest smart city trends and technology."
The purpose of Huawei's smart city infrastructure proposals is to ease the burden on public services, that will inevitably come with rapid development and population growth in urban centers around the world. Huawei's proposed solutions include a data cloud center, integrated communications, and real-time visibility of the urban environment. The company has already rolled out some smart city infrastructure in Europe, including lighting solutions that significantly reduce power consumption, and "visualized management and predictive maintenance" that has reduced costs.
Huawei's Smart City Summit emphasizes the need for cities around the world to adjust to the fast-changing lifestyles and requirements of urban populations today.
