Huawei has officially launched a series of ICT solutions in line with the needs of urban connectivity in the digital era. For a fully-connected rail transportation, Huawei released its Urban Rail Light Cloud, 5G Digital Indoor System (DIS) solutions, as well as LTE-Railway (LTE-R) Solution which were jointly released with Tianjin 712 Communication & Broadcasting Co., LTD. (TCB 712) for next general rail wireless communications at the UITP Global Public Transport Summit 2019.
Under the theme “Cloud-Based Urban Rail, the Art of Mobility”, the company outlined how a new breed of ICT solutions will enable an era of fully-connected, digital rail transportation. The solutions deliver cloud-based services, broadband connectivity, and better-connected digital railways to help rail operators build safer, smarter, and more efficient rail transportation systems, continuously improve transportation capacity and drive service innovations.
Eman Liu, President of the Global Transportation Business Unit of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, commented: “Rail transportation is a complex system that involves railways, vehicles, AFC, and signals. For a seamless, interconnected environment across this system, rail operators need communications devices to collect data and digital platforms that integrate cloud, IoT, big data, and AI to ensure secure, reliable and efficient operations. Huawei aims to help rail customers achieve digital transformation by offering the Urban Rail Cloud and rail operation communications solutions, as well as collaborating with global partners to move railways into the future.”
Digital urban railway can enhance the customer experience in rail journeys. Mohamed Mezghani, Secretary General of UITP said, “A high-quality public transport needs a double priority: both physical and digital infrastructure.” With over 20 years of experience, Huawei has provided products and services for 120,000 km of railways and more than 100 urban tracks in the world. Based on in-depth understanding of rail customer needs, Huawei has been continuously exploring the application of new technologies in the industry, such as 5G, cloud, big data, and AI. Together with partners, Huawei is developing solutions to help customers improve operational efficiency, revenue, and passenger services.
