Huawei said that it is all set to kick off a number of Smart City projects in the country in collaboration with its partners, targeting areas like Public safety, even as the Chinese telecom gear maker reckons that larger Smart Cities deployments would not happen too quickly.
“I think smart city as a concept rather than a solution. In Huawei if you look at all the Indian smart cities, it’s not going to happen too quick, based on my experience with China, Dubai, and Singapore,” Joe So, CTO of Industry Solutions Enterprise Business Group at Huawei, told ET, in a recent interaction.
“We are initiating a lot of projects with our partners in India. However our strategy is to be focused on certain areas rather than doing everything,” he said, suggesting that the initial focus would be on public safety.
