Compared to traditional technology-centric labs, Huawei said its OpenLab Delhi will be market-oriented, and aims to develop hardware and software services as well as solutions based on customers’ requirements during their digital transformation.

Built as a part of Huawei’s Global OpenLab Programme, the OpenLab Delhi will provide Huawei ecosystem partners and customers a platform to freely test and customise their solutions.

The OpenLab Delhi will focus on driving smart city innovations in areas as diverse as IoT (Internet of Things), smart building, smart campus (perimeter alarm, smart parking, energy efficiency management and visitor management), smart transportation, intelligent video surveillance solutions and convergent command and control solutions, Huawei said.
