Under the theme of “Digital Road, Smart Mobility”, Huawei is working to explore the digital transformation and technological innovation of the transportation industry. Huawei is showcasing its iSitePower-T Open Road Tolling Solution, which provides highly reliable and intelligent power supplies to enable open road tolling (ORT) implementation on highways. In addition, Huawei also showcases its latest industry-leading solutions, including OceanStor Dorado V6 all-flash storage solution, ITS solution, C-V2X solution, and transportation cloud.
Liu Zhongheng, President of the Transportation Business Dept of Huawei Enterprise BG, said:
“With the rapid integration of Information Communications Technology (ICT) and the smart transportation industry, we are embracing the digital road era. Innovative ICT products and solutions for electronic toll collection (ETC), holographic road perception, and Internet of Vehicles (IoV), will result in safer, more efficient, and smarter transportation systems for urban roads, while continuously improving transport capacity, and stimulating service innovation.”
Hu Hao, Director of Pan-IoV Industry Development of Huawei’s Corporate Strategy Dept, delivered a keynote speech entitled “C-V2X Enables Smart Transportation and Autonomous Driving” at the event. He pointed out that modern C-V2X technology has matured to the point where it can now be put into practice. Huawei specifies C-V2X levels based on a commercial use roadmap of the technology, and is calling for the industry to cooperate on improving classification definitions, so as to reach a consensus. Huawei is actively exploring and applying C-V2X technology to multiple scenarios, including urban road traffic management, accurate public transport systems, smart highways, and automatic parking assist (APA). By leveraging ICT, Huawei continues to power the transformation of intelligent roadside facilities, autonomous driving vehicles, and mobility.
Huawei Releases iSitePower-T Solution for Smart Transportation
In recent years, digitization and intelligence have become comprehensive worldwide trends. Following this trend, highways throughout China will be upgraded from traditional manual toll collection to ORT during 2019. This increases roadside connections, enables service devices to process more data, and transforms central brute force computing into professional edge computing. In addition to RSU antennas and cameras on the edge side, lot of equipment will be gradually deployed, reflecting the varied requirements of diverse power supply modes.
Based on an in-depth understanding of the transportation industry, as well as many years of power supply technology experience, Huawei has developed the iSitePower-T solution. Targeted at the transportation industry, the iSitePower-T solution features:
- Multi-power input: Huawei’s unique energy multi-input & multi-output (eMIMO) supports solar energy, mains, and diesel generators, as well as various power supply modes, including 12 V DC, 24 V DC, 24 V AC, 48 V DC, and 220 V AC.
- Modular design: Supports smooth expansion and features intelligent peak clipping, avoiding PU electric power reconstruction and facilitating the rapid rollout of new service devices.
- One-stop deployment: Integrates network transmission, storage, and computing power, and supports the intelligent management of network-wide devices, greatly reducing O&M costs.
Peng Jianhua, President of Huawei Telecom Energy Domain, said:
“Huawei has served more than 340 carriers in over 170 countries worldwide, and our products are ideal for a wide range of application environments. Huawei is committed to introducing the concept of smart power supply to the transportation industry in order to deal with heavy traditional power supply devices, low reliability, and difficult O&M. The cabinet-type power supplies of Huawei’s iSitePower-T solution have been deployed widely in 20 provinces across China, providing a highly reliable and intelligent power supply base for national ORT implementation. Huawei is excited to work with industry partners to conduct continuous innovation and exploration, and address energy challenges during industry digitalization.”
Adhering to the concept of Convenient Transportation and Smooth Logistics, Huawei is dedicated to providing customers with innovative transportation solutions such as digital railway and digital urban rail. To this end, Huawei has served over 230,000 km of railways and highways, and more than 170 urban rail lines in over 70 cities across the globe.
