Dubai, UAE, November 23, 2017:  At the Global Mobile Broadband Forum, Huawei released three cooperative directions of TechCity for 2018. Huawei is excited and honored to work together with global operators towards building a leadership position from the aspects of technology, business, and social responsibility. Joint efforts into TechCity 2.0 will contribute to better connected cities and an enriched urban lifestyle. 

In 2018, TechCity will focus on three cooperative directions to accelerate monetization.

Digital Industry Applications: Mobile Empowers Operators to Enter Diverse Industries
TechCity allows operators to quickly verify innovative solutions and monetize technological leadership. It also provides digital applications to let operators enter the new business blue ocean market and monetize business leadership. TechCity gathers Huawei, operators, and governments to continue fostering NB-IoT applications that meet local demands while exploring broadband IoT cases to create digital smart cities. WTTx serves as the fourth connection mode following fiber, copper, and cable. WTTx will connect all the unconnected ranging from users to households and enterprises to enable digital broadband cities. Low-latency LTE features (such as Short TTI) help incubate assisted driving cases and improve the efficiency of urban transportation systems. In addition, operator's 4.5G networks can replace the original narrowband trunking systems with an abundance of broadband trunking services to ensure public security. These services include video group calls, video surveillance, drone inspection, and low-altitude coverage, which help convey an approach of 'Seeing is believing' and ultimately improve work efficiency of public security personnel within a Safe City.

Giga Experience: Drive Basic Urban Communication Capability Upgrade
Giga experience will serve as a new experience standard, driving upgrades of basic urban communication capability. This secures a multitude of applications to meet diversified requirements of urban residents. Huawei possesses cutting-edge innovative technologies, such as 4.5G multi-antenna, multi-carrier CA, Small Cell, and 5G. With TechCity, operators can continuously enhance network capabilities to meet growing experience requirements of urban consumers. TechCity can also satisfy operators' business demands in different capacity scenarios and provide 5G-oriented Giga experience to monetize leadership in technology and business.

Industry Ecosystem for Digital Society: Create Better Connected Cities
A digital society is designed to incubate future-oriented applications. Global operators are highly advised to develop capabilities in terms of teams, ecosystem, business structure, governmental cooperation, and policy support. These capabilities are key to digital transformation across diverse industries for a better connected world. Huawei is willing and eager to engage in further collaboration with customers and launch TechCity to build an industry ecosystem for a digital society. Specific areas of focus include: 

Governmental cooperation and policy support: Huawei and operators can encourage governments to open public resources, lift industry restrictions, and develop public service standards (such as a national broadband white paper). 

Industry collaboration: Huawei and operators can promote the maturity of the industry chain (such as terminals and chips) and interoperability of industry applications (especially for local industries). This helps operators develop new digital applications (adaptable to their networks) and quickly enter a broad range of vertical industries. 

Business incubation: Huawei and operators can establish networks for small-scale commercial deployment, while verifying and fostering new business models in advance. These actions help to anticipate the rapid commercial use of industry applications for the imminent arrival of a digital society. 

Global operators are basic network providers, and are solemn and inescapable to laying a solid foundation for continuous emergence of new applications in a future-proof digital society. TechCity will allow operators to build a robust industry ecosystem for better connected cities. 

Zhou Yuefeng, Chief Marketing Officer of Huawei Wireless Network Product Line, indicated that, 'Technological and business successes are both indispensable. Network innovation aims to deliver more and more business growth. With a clear-cut long-term strategy and direction, operators are advised to accelerate commercial deployment and the monetization of TechCity new technologies in small increments, but at an increasingly expedited pace.'
In 2018, Huawei plans to cooperate with global operators and implement TechCity in over 16 cities, with a keen focus on enabling Digital Industry, Giga Experience, and Digital Society. In-depth cooperation in these three directions is set to enrich urban life and create a better connected world.'

In 2017, global operators closely worked with Huawei to launch TechCity which has emerged as a bridge between a multitude of applications and commercial deployments.

In November 2016, Huawei released the TechCity 2.0 concept at the Global Broadband Forum held in Japan. This project aims to help operators build leadership in technology, business, and social responsibility.

This continued until November 2017, when Huawei created 14 TechCities in partnership with mainstream operators, vertical industry partners, and government sectors. Over 15 innovative wireless solutions have been deployed throughout 12 TechCities. The localized business cases of three new services (LiTRA, WTTx, and NB-IoT) have been incubated and put into small-scale commercial use across 11 TechCities. TechCity 2.0 helps global operators rapidly deploy innovative wireless technologies, while implementing large-scale incubation of new applications and business models according to local requirements. TechCity has emerged as a bridge between a multitude of applications and commercial deployments. 

The TechCity project will span across 16 global cities when Seoul Korea (LG U+) and St. Petersburg Russia (MegaFon) plan to launch the TechCity project in 2018.
