Hexagon AB, a leading global provider of information technologies that drive productivity and quality across geospatial and industrial enterprise applications, today announced a strategic partnership with Huawei, a global leader in information and communications technology (ICT) solutions, to deliver smart city solutions.

With the majority of the world’s population living in cities, safety and infrastructure challenges are at an all-time high.
