Pegasus, a DarkMatter company, has entered a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Huawei, a world leading provider of telecommunications equipment, to develop and deploy joint smart and safe city big data solutions tailored to customer requirements.
The agreement will see the companies jointly develop technology and professional capabilities, including but not limited to products and services leveraging Huawei’s Public Safety Cloud solution and Pegasus’ big data analytics applications.
Signed during Huawei’s Global Safe City Summit 2017 held in Dubai under the theme: “Leading New ICT, The Road To Collaborative Public Safety”, the MoU sees Pegasus combine its Big Data Analytics solutions; Smart City Big Data applications; and Safe City Big Data applications with elements of Huawei’s FusionInsight Big Data platform solutions to target Smart City environments and provide customers with an efficient, open, and collaborative cloud experience.
Huawei already manages a powerful partner ecosystem and offers IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service), and SaaS (Security as a Service) to the global market, providing public security agencies with a variety of cloud computing platforms, including Intelligent Video Cloud, converged command centre, public safety application platform, and managing Big Data.
Pegasus’ own Big Data Platform and analytics applications are capable of processing billions of data points per day to power a variety of analytic solutions that generate critical insights in near real-time.
The actionable intelligence derived through Pegasus tools are instrumental to maintaining safety and security in Smart Cities by applying both technology tools and data scientists to create a holistic ecosystem for producing high-value and high-impact information to drive decision-making.
Upon initialling the MoU, Peng Xiao, CEO of Pegasus said, “This agreement with Huawei is a significant step forward in our partnership programme and our plans to go-to-market with leading entities in the cloud and data spheres.
“We are excited to bring the Pegasus Big Data Analytics and Smart City application capabilities to the Huawei platform.
“We view this MoU with Huawei as a fundamental development in helping secure Internet of Things ecosystems everywhere.”
Sun Zhenjian, Huawei’s IT Product Line Public Safety Solution Director, said, “The main value of a collaborative Public Safety Cloud Architecture lies in data value re-creation and is achieved through joint intelligent data management that integrates Smart Cloud, Comprehensive Policing Cloud, and Policing Big Data Cloud.
“The latter Cloud infrastructure is used to provide diverse services, including data aggregation, storage, processing, exchange, and sharing, and we believe these are areas we can enhance significantly through our work with Pegasus.”
