Huawei showcases eLTE SafeCity solution
Huawei has unveiled its eLTE SafeCity solution to help improve public security. The solution, announced at Critical Communications World 2017, forms part of a joint effort between Huawei and its partners. It aims to provide global governments and customers with reliable and comprehensive E2E wireless networks that support service convergence, multiple sensors, and mobile police cloud.
Rapid urban economic development and rising urban living standards mean that effectively safeguarding people and their properties is a growing challenge for government departments and agencies in city administration, event management and emergency control. Traditional narrowband communication networks with basic voice service only will be insufficient to meet the demands of future networks.
Huawei claims eLTE SafeCity, addresses these challenges, encompassing E2E eLTE broadband trunking, broadband data applications, mobile video, wireless video backhaul, and accessory products. “Broadband trunking has been recognised by the industry as the right way to drive digitalisation and informationisation in policing and its applications are available and commercially deployed on a large scale,” said Peng Jianhua, president of enterprise wireless business, Huawei. “The solution meets both the B-TrunC and 3GPP standards, and supports long-term evolution, thus worth long-term investments.”
The eLTE SafeCity solution has the following four major features, which together provide users with a comprehensive command service:
Guaranteed visibility, connectivity, mobility, and accuracy for urban safety
It integrates voice, video, data, and geographic information system (GIS) services and accommodates surveillance, command and dispatch all in one network. It can incorporate existing service resources and integrate various types of communication networks, whether public or private, broadband or narrowband, wired or wireless. It includes cloud command solutions for numerous service types.
Reliable broadband trunking for all services
The 4G/4.5G-based solution allows group calls to be set up within 300 ms and a pre-emption delay of less than 150 ms, both of which are record speeds for the industry. High-end, low-end, and mid-range trunking terminal series are available with various IP67-certified accessory products, such as earplug microphones, shoulder microphones, and body cameras. Intended for safety services, disaster relief, border patrol, emergency response and urgent repairs.
Mobile video solution for non-stop all-round surveillance
Spectrum is essential to radio communication. Unfortunately, licensed spectrum is not accessible to all users. In certain cases, making the most of limited licensed spectrum is the only choice. Huawei’s eLTE-Licensed solution allows users to achieve video backhaul in moving scenarios even with speed up to 120 km/h. It uses compact all-in-one base stations, small enough to install on walls and poles, cutting the costs of trenching and cable layout. Rapid deployment of video surveillance networks to commercial streets, intersections, and squares guarantees non-stop all-round surveillance.
Diverse mobile Broadband police applications with open API interfaces and terminal module integration
eLTE, with its open API interfaces, allows for interconnection with leading command platforms worldwide, facilitating the establishment of a comprehensive E2E video command solution. Multiple police applications installed on each trunking terminal can be connected to the central cloud database, increasing the efficiency of case management, identity recognition, and onsite enforcement.
