In his comments, HE Khalifa Al Zaffin, executive chairman of Dubai Aviation Corporation and Dubai South, said, "Dubai's status as a worldwide communication hub has been activated and achieved through its relentless efforts towards innovation and investment in cutting-edge technology. The collaboration with Huawei enables us to build a connected aviation community capable of supporting sophisticated services that cater to the future of transportation and mobility. We are certain that our valued partners and customers will benefit from cutting-edge infrastructure through which they can offer bespoke services to their clients."

To develop a dynamic smart transportation system, Dubai South plans to deploy a fully connected, high-bandwidth, low-latency private network for massive machine interactions built on Huawei technology. Moreover, the entity will tap into Huawei's expertise by designing an advanced integrated operations center for centralized monitoring and control operations, traffic, security, and other services.

Jerry Liu, CEO, Huawei UAE, said, "Huawei's solutions already power some of the most prominent airport projects in the UAE. This partnership is yet another milestone in the pipeline of Huawei solutions that help develop regional economies through the latest digital technologies, underpinned by strong cybersecurity design that can address hot-button, board-level concerns, such as ransomware. Eventually, this project will set the benchmark for other connected communities towards the region’s rapid digitalization."

Furthermore, the two organizations will also explore innovative solutions to support a mixed-traffic, intelligent transport system for autonomous and driver-assisted vehicles; an AI-enabled platform for diverse stakeholders, such as aviation, logistics, education, and training for operational purposes; and promote unified international cybersecurity standards to safeguard digital transformation projects.

Huawei is committed to supporting customers in the government, transport, real estate, education, healthcare, and hospitality sectors to accelerate the digital transformation and reduce their overall IT spending. By offering comprehensive solutions for large-scale infrastructure projects, Huawei brings the UAE closer to embracing a fully connected, intelligent world.
