Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) India announced the launch of a Customer Experience Center (CEC) in Gurugram to demonstrate IoT-based smart city solutions – targeting 100 smart city projects coming up in India.
The facility will feature innovative offerings for smart city projects from HPE, and powered by Intel architecture.
Som Satsangi, MD – India, HPE, said: “Intel-powered CEC in Gurugram will showcase our experience, best practices, partner ecosystem and technology innovation. Through this initiative we aim to help governments leverage technology to reduce the time it takes to turn smart ideas into smart cities.”
The Intel powered smart city CEC at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, India, is a great opportunity for customers to experience, and for system integrators to showcase local IoT implementation possibilities for industries such as healthcare, smart cities, and waste management.
“Our goal is to automate and bring all possible IoT devices online, for maximized efficiency, improved security, and enhanced business performance,” said Prakash Mallya, MD, Sales & Marketing Group, Intel India.
The CEC in India will demonstrate IoT-based smart city solutions that address the complex and fragmented ecosystem that exists within IoT environments and HPE can help implement an infrastructure that interconnects the various components of the end-to-end solution.
Key smart city solutions
eHealth Center (eHC)
eHCs addresses the need for affordable healthcare in emerging cities by enabling improved access and effectiveness of primary healthcare in underserved areas. These are built on a framework that leverage cutting-edge technologies including cloud, mobility, big data and also feature dashboards for real time data representation and analysis. Since 2012, more than 80 eHCs have been set-up across the country, and have collectively witnessed over 5 lakh patient visits.
Public Wi-Fi network should be capable of delivering value-added services such as analytics, location based advertising and services, and mobile engagement to enable monetization of the infrastructure.
HPE Aruba’s Wi-Fi solutions drive additional value-added services including unified communications, mobile engagement and location based advertisements to enable further monetization of Wi-Fi deployments.
HPE along with partners offer end-to-end surveillance solution capability to deliver video analytics required for city surveillance. HPE’s Edgeline IoT and analytics systems analyze and process data at the point of data creation/ingestion. This enables law enforcements to identify and respond in case of a potential untoward incident in real-time.
Solid Waste Management
HPE offers solid waste management solutions capable of managing and monitoring the sanitation workers and equipment such as mapping the route for the garbage trucks and tracking them.
Integrated Command and Control Center (ICCC)
The ICCC is based on the HPE Universal IoT Platform, which is common across all HPE smart solutions and provides agnostic support for smart ecosystems along with strategic partners. The ICCC enables governments or city administrations to remotely manage and control various IoT services via a single platform.
Recently, the Bhopal Smart City Development Corporation selected the HPE Universal IoT Platform to create India’s first cloud-based ICCC, which with its multi-tenancy capabilities will be able to run several city command center operations in parallel across seven cities in Madhya Pradesh.
