Huawei and Smart City Solutions Company (SC2), a leading Saudi Smart City service provider and operator, have signed a teaming agreement to co-operate in providing Saudi Arabia with innovative Smart City solutions that support the national aspiration of enhancing the liveability and operational efficiency of Saudi cities.
Ahmed ALSanaa, Chairman of the Board of BATIC, said: “SC2 was established with a vision to be the first Smart City operator in Saudi Arabia, a proposition which is missing in the market today. It engages with city managers and developers in public private partnership models providing a unique central citizen experience and enable city officials to take informed decisions to provide efficiency to its operations. We are confident that our partnership with Huawei will leverage the large portfolio of Huawei in Smart Cities and its capabilities in building Smart City digital platforms.”
David Shi, Middle East President Huawei Enterprise, said: “The first project under this agreement is the implementation of smart parking, smart lighting, video analytics through state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence algorithms, and a robust ICT infrastructure for the Eastern province parking project covering AL Khobar, Dammam and Dhahran cities.”
