Swisscom and Huawei will explore new concepts in fixed line network deployment, developing innovative products that enable "zero-touch operations" for telecom and data centre networks and accelerating the application of cloud computing, telemetry, AI, and big data on networks.

The agreement for the NetCity project was signed by the Swisscom CIO & CTO and member of the group executive board, Heinz Herren, and by President of Products & Solutions at Huawei, David Wang.
