Nokia has demonstrated its Integrated Operations Center (IOC), a smart city management solution, to Viettel in Hanoi, Vietnam. Once deployed, the IOC will allow Viettel’s customers to efficiently manage several smart and safe city use cases such as traffic monitoring, pollution detection and water quality monitoring.
The solution, backed by Nokia’s proven technology expertise and system integration capabilities, enables authorities to take advantage of a seamless Internet of Things (IoT) cityscape powered by ubiquitous connectivity, automation and analytics to provide a better quality of life for Hanoi’s citizens.
Nokia’s IOC solution orchestrates smart city operations providing a unified real-time management of all smart city assets and services. It combines automation and analytics to help cities take advantage of enhanced productivity, new revenue opportunities and instantaneous response to changing scenarios. Nokia’s IOC solution will allow Viettal to effectively manage traffic in Hanoi by leveraging video analytics and video management solutions.
The IOC’s unique custom integration adaptor layer, developed by Nokia’s systems integration experts, enables service providers like Viettel to drastically reduce the time to launch new smart city services while making optimal use of the legacy systems like surveillance cameras, water quality management and air quality management.
The Vietnamese Government plans to leverage the new technologies to provide smarter and sustainable living for its citizens. Smart cities, especially urban areas like Hanoi, will help officials address a number of problems including waste management, energy management and traffic management, and will also ensure better utilization of available resources.
Alexander Van Overveld, head of Public Sector Practice for Global Services at Nokia, said: “We are honored to help Viettel conduct this important demonstration. Nokia’s IOC is a proven solution to manage smart city infrastructure efficiently. This end-to-end solution provides a real-time view of the different applications, devices and systems used in the smart city. Its integrated analytics capability further opens up new revenue opportunities for the service providers. Smart cities promise to provide sustainable living, and we are committed to enabling Viettel to deliver world-class use cases and solutions to its customers.”
