Dubai South, Huawei partner up to develop smart transportation ecosystem

Dubai South, Huawei partner up to develop smart transportation ecosystem

Huawei, a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, has established strategic cooperation with Dubai South.

Huawei's advanced digital technologies and solutions will be used to enable intelligent, connected, and sustainable communications infrastructure, data management, transportation, operations, security, and other associated services at Dubai South under the new agreement.

Executive Chairman of Dubai Aviation Corporation and Dubai South, HE Khalifa Al Zaffin, stated that the collaboration with Huawei enables them to build an integrated aviation community designed to support advanced services tailored to the future of transportation and mobility.

Huawei UAE CEO Jerry Liu stated that Huawei's technologies had been used in a few of UAE's most well-known airport initiatives. This collaboration is a step forward in Huawei's strategy to assist regional economies in flourishing via the use of cutting-edge digital technologies, all while maintaining a robust cybersecurity architecture that can tackle hot-button board-level problems like ransomware.

Dubai South intends to establish a fully linked, high-bandwidth, low-latency private network for enormous machine interactions to develop a dynamic smart transportation system based on Huawei technology. Dubai South will also benefit from Huawei's expertise by constructing an innovative integrated operations center for centralized monitoring and control of operations, traffic, security, and other services. The two organizations will also seek new ways to enable autonomous and driver-assisted vehicles in a mixed-traffic, intelligent transportation system.

Furthermore, for operational purposes, Dubai South and Huawei will investigate collaborating on an AI-enabled platform for various stakeholders, including aviation, logistics, education and training, leisure and hospitality, and other sectors. The two organizations will also establish and promote harmonized worldwide cybersecurity standards to protect digital transformation initiatives.

Huawei is dedicated to assisting customers in the government, transportation, real estate, education, healthcare, and hospitality industries in accelerating digital transformation and lowering IT costs. Huawei pushes the UAE closer to adopting a fully connected, intelligent world by providing comprehensive solutions for large-scale infrastructure projects.
