Huawei’s contribution to the Smart Villages and to the Long Term Vision for Rural Areas could be  divided in 5 main pillars, which are 5 areas in which our company is fully involved: 

Agriculture: Huawei has been working heavily on precision farming, smart irrigation  systems, soil monitoring systems, yield monitoring, precision livestock farming and the  monitoring of farms through drones which record high volumes of agricultural production  data. In order to make all this happen, Huawei provides not just rural connectivity, but  also a dense networks of connected sensors powered by Artificial Intelligence. 

Education: Huawei invests a lot in distance learning and live virtual classrooms (LVC) in  rural and remote areas, with a unified cloud platform for teaching which offers an end to-end solution that is available to teachers, classrooms and students and enables  interactive teaching in real time. More importantly, we provide schools in rural and  remote areas with broadband connectivity in order to bridge the digital divide between  rural and urban areas and provide equal access to quality education for kids in rural and  remote areas. 

Health: Huawei has been investing a lot in telemedicine, which allows patients in rural  and remote areas to enjoy medical services from urban-level hospitals in the comfort of  their own homes. We provide a lot of telemedicine solutions and applications, including  an HD video conference system, remote consultation and imaging data transmission for  remote diagnosis. It is also important to note that Huawei 5G is going to upgrade and  accelerate telemedicine technology heavily. 

Energy: the opportunities to produce renewable energy from sources such as wind and  solar are much higher in rural areas than in urban areas. Huawei has been working a lot  in the past years on Photovoltaics (PV) and Smart PV Solutions, notably new generation  string solar inverters. Huawei also provides micro-grid solutions to convert solar energy  into electric energy, which is essential for rural areas. 

Transport: At Huawei we believe that rural mobility has received far less attention from policymakers than urban mobility and there is a serious lack of various smart and shared  mobility options that are being deployed in many urban areas. In this regards, Huawei can  help provide solutions based on innovative mobility mapping and platforms. Huawei can  also provide charging infrastructures and deploy notably charging stations for electric  vehicles in rural areas.
