Overview of the Shopping Mall and Supermarket IoT Solution - Smart Shopping Guide

Overview of the Shopping Mall and Supermarket IoT Solution - Smart Shopping Guide

Scenario Overview

In traditional shopping malls, shop assistants introduce commodity information or recommend promotional commodities to customers. This mode has the following shortcomings:
  • The labor cost is high.
  • The shopping malls cannot perform Big Data analytics on customers' behavior of selecting commodities to analyze popularity of commodities.
  • Some customers want to select commodities freely, but do not need recommendations from shop assistants. Shopping experience of customers may degrade if they are followed by shop assistants.
  • When there are a large number of customers, shop assistants may not be able to introduce commodity information to each of them. As a result, shopping experience of customers is not good.

In this case, Huawei provides a smart shopping guide solution. When customers pick up commodities, tablet kiosks can display commodity information to the customers.

Solution Benefits

This solution brings the following benefits:
  • The number of shop assistants and labor costs are reduced.
  • The smart shopping guide system can perform Big Data analytics on customers' behavior of picking up commodities and analyze popularity of commodities. The analysis result will help shopping malls make accurate marketing strategies and increase profits.
  • Customers will not be annoyed by merchandising of shop assistants.
  • Customers can directly view commodity information displayed on tablet kiosks without waiting for shop assistants to introduce commodities.

Network architecture

As shown in Figure 28-1, the network architecture of the smart shopping guide solution consists of the terminal layer, access layer, network layer, and application layer.

Figure 28-1  Network architecture
  • Terminal layer

    Tablet kiosks, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) labels bound to commodities, and mobile phones with the smart shopping guide app installed are deployed at this layer.

    BLE is a new ultra-low-power wireless transmission technology that enables devices to work at extremely low operating and standby power consumption.

  • Access layer

    APs are deployed at this layer.

  • Network layer

    Network devices such as ACs and switches are deployed at this layer.

  • Application layer

    A smart shopping guide server is deployed at this layer.

AP Provides wireless network coverage for customers or employees.
  • When tablet kiosks are installed, an AP also provides wireless network coverage for them.
  • When no tablet kiosk is installed, an AP receives BLE broadcast frames from BLE labels through its built-in Bluetooth module.
  • When tablet kiosks are installed, indoor APs suitable for shopping malls and supermarkets can be used.
  • When no tablet kiosk is installed, only the APs with built-in Bluetooth modules that are suitable for shopping malls and supermarkets can be used.
AC Manages APs, delivers configurations to them, and works together with them. Huawei

It is used to build a networking structure and forward packet data on the network.


BLE label

Refers to a label with a gravity sensor. A BLE label is bound to a commodity to sense customers' actions of picking up the commodity.

Tablet kiosk

Has the shopping guide app installed and displays commodity information.


A tablet running the Android operating system has a built-in Bluetooth module and a built-in Wi-Fi module installed. It can be used as a kiosk. The Bluetooth module complies with BLE 4.0, while the Wi-Fi module supports 802.11n, a single spatial stream, and the 2.4 GHz frequency band.

Smart shopping guide server software

Provides commodity information to be displayed on tablet kiosks, and collects and analyzes Big Data statistics on the data sent by BLE labels. The analysis result is provided for shopping malls to make marketing strategies.

Mobile app Works together with the smart shopping guide server to bind BLE labels to commodities. Century
Smart shopping guide server hardware

A server with the Intel Core i5-7400 CPU or higher, a memory of more than 4 GB, and an SSD hard disk is recommended. The Windows 7 or Windows 10 operating system is supported.
