Considering security as a significant aspect for Smart Cities, Lenovo – global technology leader driving intelligent transformations and Pivot 3 – a leading provider of Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI) have partnered to develop edge computing solution — the mission-critical security.
Mission-critical security initiatives have been conducive in driving the Smart City Market Growth. Basically, these rely on the information gathered from various databases and city sensors which have video data and analytics including the licence plate recognition, facial recognition, behaviour analysis and other intelligence.
“The global market for security equipment in the city surveillance sector has outpaced $3 billion in 2017 and now is expected to grow at an average rate of 14.6 percent through 2021,” says IHS Markit, a global information provider.
“Both Lenovo and Pivot3 have earned a recognition when it comes to edge computing services. They have provided platforms wherein government and organisations can leverage machine learning to safeguard their clients,” says Wilfredo Sotolongo, Vice President and General Manager of IoT at Lenovo Data Center Group.
With these edge computing solutions, the security team in various locations can view any camera. Apparently, this will simplify the operations by ignoring the brand across the city from a single location.
