The first China-Laos Expressway has been launched recently. To extend the achievement to its best possibility, the Vientiane to Vangvieng Expressway has been built on using smart technologies for the first-ever in Laos history.
The opening of this expressway will significantly improve local transportation conditions, improve transportation efficiency, promote the development of economy and tourism along the way, and effectively benefit the local people.
Huawei cooperated its partner, Yunnan Huayuan Electronics Co., Ltd. to build a secure, stable, and intelligent ICT platform for this smart expressway based on the global leading information and communication technology (ICT), cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), and security management system.
Phokham, a staff member of Tmark Resort Vangvieng, expressed his feelings with excitement upon the new expressway’s launching. “There has been a significant increase in hotel bookings during this period. Tourists also show admiration for the travel experience on the Vientiane-Vangvieng expressway that integrates high-tech and engineering construction, modern concepts, and cutting-edge technology to ensure driving safety. I believe after the opening of this expressway, it will help to boost tourism and economic development, and my income will also increase accordingly.”
Nanthavath, who works at Vientiane, drove with his family to experience and witness the opening of the first expressway in his hometown. “The new road is wider, faster, and safer than the old one. It used to be a day of driving back and forth from Vientiane to Vang Vieng, and it only uses more than an hour to reach Vang Vieng now.”
ICT technologies are playing an increasingly important role in the transportation and other industries, providing a better security system and convenience for people’s lives, and it is providing a tremendous impetus for social development towards a fully connected intelligent life. Huawei’s data communication and transmission equipment deployed along the route build a digital perception, interaction, transmission, and the application integrated solution using big data analysis and other technical means to implement all-scenario solutions such as real-time intelligent monitoring, intelligent charging, emergency response, and decision analysis.
