Chinese IT company iSoftStone will work with domestic mobile phone manufacturer Huawei to develop intelligent street lamps.

The project, based on Narrow Band Internet of Things (NB-IoT) technology, was announced on Thursday. They will develop lights that have multiple connections and low energy consumption. and have strong penetration through solid material to better serve the collection of real-time data at lower cost, Zhang Shunmao, president of products and solutions marketing department of Huawei.

The joint project is part of the effort to construct intelligent cities and would be operated on Huawei's OceanConnect IoT, a cloud platform which can link the terminal and manage data, Zhang said.

In recent years, Huawei has co-developed projects including the government cloud, intelligent online shops and energy-efficient management.

Feng Yong, chief marketing officer of iSoftStone, said internet of things is the key to big data, cloud computing and artificial intelligence because it can provide real-time data at high frequency.
