Huawei Forecasts Heightened Adoption of Smart City Infrastructure in Middle East Region | Zawya.com

Huawei Forecasts Heightened Adoption of Smart City Infrastructure in Middle East Region | Zawya.com | Smart Cities | Scoop.it

As urbanization accelerates, information and communications technologies (ICTs) are playing a more significant role in improving urban efficiency and the quality of people's lives. On the back of these developments, Huawei--a leading global ICT solutions provider--will lead discussions with regional leaders at this week's 2nd Middle East Smart Cities Summit 2013, spotlighting the key factors that will drive increased adoption of Smart City infrastructure over the coming three to five years.

 

As the ICT Platinum Partner of this year's event--being held in Doha from December 9 to 10--Huawei and its partners will be placing particular focus on working with government authorities, urban planners, communication carriers, consulting firms, venture capitalists and investment firms, local universities & research institutes who are involved in the master planning and development of more intelligent city infrastructure. Senior executives and engineers will also be showcasing a wide variety of global case studies demonstrating how applications of cutting-edge ICT platforms are already supporting sustainable socio-economic growth in major metropolitan environments.

 

"Access to a safe and efficient economy for businesses, citizens, and local governments is the ultimate goal of any Smart City initiative," says Mr. Pan En, Vice President of Huawei Middle East. "Qatar is one of the regional leaders in this respect, as the right foundation is already in place in the form of the National Vision 2030 with a lot of the desired infrastructure being developed. Countries in the region today need to provide services that span the digital divide, meeting citizens' expectations for interacting with and accessing government services at the touch of a button--from healthcare to education, smart transportation, and even tourism services. Technology advancements such as ubiquitous broadband connections, advanced analytics software, and more advanced security protocol will all be required to meet this future, and thus it is particularly important to have public and private organizations cultivating a healthy ecosystem for the development of future information highways."
