Huawei recently received GSMA's "Best Mobile Innovation for Smart Cities" award in Barcelona. The award commends Huawei for its innovative contribution as the first to apply NB-IoT technology to a dozen smart city projects.

"NB-IoT technologies are now mature with a rapidly growing ecosystem and evident business value," said Edward Fan, Vice President of Marketing at Huawei's Carrier Business Group. "Its economic and social benefit is appreciated by more and more people. There were 39 commercial networks, 500 thousand base stations and 100 million connections for NB-Io in 2017. By year-end 2018, we expect to see 100 commercial networks, 1.2 million base stations and 150 million connections," Fan added. "NB-IoT based smart-city solutions promise more efficient municipal management, better public services and smoother industrial upgrades. And People will enjoy a safer, more convenient, and better life that will bring us closer to the goal of a 'well-governed, pleasant and prosperous' smart city."

Smart city initiatives are gaining momentum globally. By working with partners and industry verticals, Huawei has engaged in enabling about 50 smart cities use cases across 40 industries: including water and gas metering, street parking, lighting, shared bicycles, smoke detection, fire hydrant monitoring, man-hole cover monitoring, environment monitoring, trash bin management, and postbox management. In smart city Yingtan, in China's Jiangxi Province, we find that once dimly lit city streets are now brighter at night, major fires in public places are more often prevented and even water distribution loss has been reduced.

Meanwhile, all delivered projects have shown measurable results. As illustrated in the use cases Huawei prepared for MWC 2018, telecom operators are witnessing revenue growth of three to 10 times over their previous connection only business. This is very powerful proof of Huawei's vision of "Beyond Connectivity, IoT as a Service."
