Dubai South will adopt Huawei technology to build a connected aviation community capable of supporting sophisticated services that cater to the future of transportation and mobility.

For this, the largest single-urban master development focusing on aviation, logistics and real estate has announced a strategic partnership with Huawei, a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices.

The tie-up will enable intelligent, connected and sustainable communications infrastructure, data management, transportation, operations, security and other related services at Dubai South.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU), was signed on the sidelines of the recent Dubai Airshow by Khalifa Al Zaffin, Executive Chairman of Dubai Aviation Corporation and Dubai South, and Jerry Liu, CEO, Huawei UAE.

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.

Dubai South will also tap into Huawei’s expertise through designing an advanced integrated operations centre for centralised monitoring and control operations, traffic, security and other services. The two organisations will also explore innovative solutions to support a mixed-traffic, intelligent transport system for autonomous and driver-assisted vehicles.

Furthermore, Dubai South and Huawei will consider potential collaboration on an AI-enabled platform for diverse stakeholders, such as aviation, logistics and hospitality for operational purposes.
