Bridge for Cities 4.0, under the theme of “Connecting Cities through the New Industrial Revolution”, has been held in Vienna, Austria from 3 to 4 September 2019. Based on the success of the previous events, BRIDGE for Cities 4.0 explores the role of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in fostering urban innovation in cities along the Belt and Road and beyond. The “4.0” in the title symbolizes both the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the fourth edition of the event.
Over 30 mayors and more than 800 participants have attended the two-day event, including plenary sessions, exchanges between city leaders and businesses and mayors’ roundtables. Hytera, a global leading provider of professional wireless professional and private wireless communication equipment and solutions, also showcased at the event.
Hytera has more than 90 branches with employees from over 40 countries, and serves customers in over 120 countries and regions around the world. With voice, video & data, Hytera supports public safety, transportation, energy and business commercial customers from daily operation to emergence response, empowering them to achieve a safer, faster, and richer communication network.
Since its acquisition of Sepura in 2017, Hytera’s brand influence in Europe has been greatly enhanced. From 2018 to 2019, Hytera has won the bidding for private network communications in many European countries.
In February this year, Hytera signed a contract for the purchase of TETRA terminal equipment with London Police, which successfully broke the long-term monopoly position of its main competitors in the public security market of the country.
Hytera has kept up with the national “Belt & Road Initiative” and has made breakthroughs over those years. This year, Hytera has provided DMR equipment for Philippine National Police, secured CITIC summit in Tajikistan, and made significant achievements in the African market. In addition, the CIS, South Asia, Africa and other “belt and road” countries also have strong demand for private network construction. With the advantage of product and technology integration, Hytera will walk steadfastly for the overseas development.
