Huawei and Frequentis have signed a memorandum of understanding, agreeing to jointly develop an ‘open eco-system’ of public safety solutions.
According to information released by the companies, part of this will be the development of a next generation dispatching technology for command and control centres. This will support features such as seamless integration of consultation and surveillance systems across different agencies, as well as real time voice and data transmission services. The partnership will span the EMEA, Asia Pacific and Latin American regions.
The MOU outlines areas where the two companies will cooperate, with both working on the design, development, validation and packaging of ‘safe city’ offerings. Frequentis has already set up a demo environment in the Huawei OpenLab in Munich.
Speaking of the partnership, vice president of Huawei WEU Region, Li Xiaoke said: “By working together with Frequentis, Huawei aims to build joint innovation ecosystems, drive digital transformation, and enable public safety industrial revolution. Huawei is looking to allocate more resources to collaborations with industrial partners to provide more powerful and cost-efficient public safety solutions.”
Johann Schweiger, director global sales, Frequentis AG said: “Frequentis is looking forward to combining its skill sets and innovative product portfolio with those of Huawei to provide improved safety-critical solutions representing a true evergreen control centre offering.”
The memorandum of understanding was signed at CeBIT 2017, which took place in Hannover last week.
