The scheme is part of the “Safe City” con­cept and com­bines a set of so­lu­tions such as the cre­ation of a con­verged com­mand cen­ter, a uni­fied LTE com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­work, a data cen­ter, the in­stal­la­tion of high-def­i­ni­tion video cam­eras and the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of faces, car col­ors and num­ber plates, and the abil­ity to con­duct anal­y­sis of large vol­umes of data.

“Bukhara is an an­cient and his­tor­i­cal city, rich in sight­see­ing. There are more than 100 lo­ca­tions of such type in town. Trav­el­ers come from all over the world to tour this leg­endary city. For them, a sense of se­cu­rity and trust is im­por­tant. There­fore, we de­cided to make a gift to the city and, within the frame­work of the project, give the tourist po­lice of Bukhara the lat­est ter­mi­nals, smart video cam­eras with fac­ere­cog­ni­tion func­tion and base sta­tions op­er­at­ing in the LTE band,” said Huawei di­rec­tor gen­eral Wang Peng.

Ac­cord­ing to him, the im­ple­men­ta­tion of this project will help law and or­der rep­re­sen­ta­tives to ef­fec­tively man­age the city and its re­sources, as well as rea­son­ably mon­i­tor the pub­lic safety of tourists.

“If tourists know that Bukhara is the safest city in the re­gion, their flow will in­crease sev­eral times, which will help the re­gion and the coun­try de­velop in­fra­struc­ture and the econ­omy as a whole. Bukhara has at­tracted tourists from all over the world for a long time, there is a spe­cial majesty in this re­gion that at­tracts vis­i­tors and leaves the most pos­i­tive mem­o­ries, both about the city and the coun­try,” the di­rec­tor gen­eral of the Chi­nese com­pany sug­gested.

Huawei has ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in in­te­grat­ing and re­al­iz­ing such projects. Suc­cess­ful ini­tia­tives have been im­ple­mented, in par­tic­u­lar, in Kenya and Pak­istan, Saudi Ara­bia, Ta­jik­istan and other coun­tries.

Of par­tic­u­lar im­por­tance was the project in Dun­huang City, Gansu prov­ince, in China. Every year more than 2 mil­lion tourists visit this city. The aim of the project was to en­sure the safety of tourists, sim­plify the process of their move­ment, en­sure the safety of his­toric sites, im­prove the ser­vices for tourists in pur­chas­ing tick­ets through mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tions to save time.

An­a­lyt­i­cal plat­form of large data al­lowed to man­age tourist re­sources in real time, and a ubiq­ui­tous wi-fi net­work was de­ployed cov­er­ing all the sights, cater­ing places, shop­ping cen­ters. In­tel­li­gent cam­eras pro­vided by Huawei, even with a 45-de­gree heat, can de­ter­mine the state of each vis­i­tor, which al­lows for timely pro­vi­sion of first aid if nec­es­sary.
