The technology will facilitate traffic monitoring, pollution detection, water quality assessment and other smart city applications
Nokia has demonstrated its smart city management solution to mobile network operator Viettel in Hanoi, Vietnam.
The integrated operations centre (IOC) provides unified, real-time management of all smart city assets and services. It will allow Viettel’s customers to efficiently manage several smart and safe city use cases such as traffic monitoring, pollution detection and water quality monitoring.
It also demonstrated its Internet for Things for smart cities technology, a fully integrated modular and scalable framework to efficiently deliver and manage services.
Nokia claims that the technology enables authorities to take advantage of a “seamless IoT cityscape” powered by "ubiquitous connectivity", automation and analytics to provide a better quality of life for Hanoi’s citizens.
The Vietnamese Government plans to leverage the new technologies to provide smarter and sustainable living for its citizens. Smart cities, especially urban areas like Hanoi, will help officials address a number of problems including waste management, energy management and traffic management, and will also ensure better utilisation of available resources.
The IOC combines automation and analytics to help cities take advantage of enhanced productivity, new revenue opportunities and immediate response to any changing scenarios. For instance, it will allow traffic in Hanoi to be managed using video analytics and video management systems.
“Smart cities promise to provide sustainable living, and we are committed to enabling Viettel to deliver world-class use cases and solutions to its customers"
The custom integration adaptor layer, developed by Nokia’s systems integration experts, enables service providers like Viettel to drastically reduce the time to launch new smart city services while making optimal use of the legacy systems like surveillance cameras, water quality management and air quality management.
"This end-to-end solution provides a real-time view of the different applications, devices and systems used in the smart city,” said Alexander Van Overveld, head of public sector practice for global services at Nokia.
“Its integrated analytics capability further opens up new revenue opportunities for the service providers. Smart cities promise to provide sustainable living, and we are committed to enabling Viettel to deliver world-class use cases and solutions to its customers."
