Hexagon AB, a leading global provider of information technologies that drive productivity and quality across geospatial and industrial enterprise applications, today announced a strategic partnership with Huawei, a global leader in information and communications technology (ICT) solutions, to deliver smart city solutions.

With the majority of the world’s population living in cities, safety and infrastructure challenges are at an all-time high. Hexagon and Huawei are working together to meet this global challenge head-on, integrating Huawei’s communications hardware with Hexagon’s safety and infrastructure software solutions.

Recognised globally as the most reliable partner in the ICT industry, Huawei’s contributions include technologies from its Safe City portfolio such as high-definition video surveillance, broadband trunking and IP-based conference calling systems. Hexagon’s emergency response, utilities management and transportation software solution portfolio, which includes computer-aided dispatch, will provide the visibility and decision-support backbone to enable customers to think and act more nimbly.
