HGC Global Communications (HGC), a fully-fledged fixed-line and international operator in Hong Kong announced that it is embarking on the rollout of three major smart city solutions - smart lampposts, smart property management and smart recognition.

HGC said it is actively promoting the development of Hong Kong's Smart City status by participating in phase I of the government's smart lamppost scheme. 

Smart lampposts are a multifunctional lighting solution in line with Smart City development and future 5G applications. HGC provides network connectivity and various smart solutions including big data collection on nearby traffic with the help of 360-degree cameras and inbuilt edge-computing systems installed in the smart lampposts. 

Smart Building Management is of key importance in densely-populated cities. Automatic electronic equipment, advanced sensors and stable internet coverage in large-scale properties, such as housing estates and commercial buildings, can ensure easy control over the environment. Real-time data on temperature, brightness, air quality and power sources can be collected, and anomalies, such as seepage, leakage, smoke and fire, can be tackled immediately. 

Smart Recognition, powered by AI technology, is another determining factor for a Smart City. In recent years, facial recognition has been widely adopted for commercial use. HGC provides facial recognition solutions tailored to specific industries, fuelled by its smart customer services. 

Andrew Kwok, CEO, HGC
HGC looks forward to collaborating with different partners while continuing to participate in Smart City development projects and launching more smart solutions, which we believe will benefit the city's transformation.

Cecilia Wong, EVP, Product & Innovations, HGC
At the same time, HGC has launched smart property management and smart recognition solutions, diversifying our business portfolio while leading the market towards opportunities and overcoming challenges.
