BARCELONA -- Chinese telecommunications company Huawei here on Wednesday presented its "Safe City" range of products and measures aimed at developing "multi-dimensional, intelligent security systems in cities."

At the ongoing Mobile World Congress, the firm introduced Safe City solutions as a combination of Internet of Things, video and big data working together to help visualize problems and collaborate responses.

A Huawei spokesman said the products and measures would "allow governments to prevent crisis, manage emergencies and reduce crime rates."

Working with Hexagon, a world leader in Safe City software, Huawei has developed a solution to allow visualization of an accident scene and unify responses based on a geographical information system which also allows different official departments to communicate through video, audio and information.

The company has already begun to implement some of its Safe City solutions, with 100 cities in 30 countries using Huawei solutions to protect over 400 million people, according to the company.

An example of their effectiveness is Kenya, where several areas have benefited from a Huawei computer-assisted design security system for video-surveillance and intelligent analysis such as number plate recognition systems.

Kenyan police inform that crime rates in regions using these systems fell by 45 percent during 2015 when compared to the previous year.
