Dubai Creek Harbour teams up with Huawei to build an all-optical Smart Campus
Feb 21, 2019
[Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, February 21, 2019] Dubai Creek Harbour, the 6 square kilometre mega-development described as ‘The World of Tomorrow’ today announced that it would use Huawei's 10G passive optical network (PON) campus solution for the project. With this solution, Dubai Creek Harbour will deploy a future-proof all-optical network for integrated services, and ultimately build a leading international smart community.
Built along the Dubai Creek, the Dubai Creek Harbour features the iconic Dubai Creek Tower, the Creek Marina, the Dubai Creek Beach, Dubai Square, the retail metropolis of the future, world-class residences, intelligent office, entertainment, public art, hotels and more.
Huawei's Agile POL solution is built on the all-optical architecture and offers various features such as ultra-high performance, simplified deployment, intelligent operations & maintenance (O&M), and flexible scaling. The solution delivers Gbps connectivity, high-quality services, and intelligent O&M to build a network highway across the entire campus. This makes it a perfect match for the network required by the Dubai Creek Harbour community.
The Dubai Creek Harbour smart community will break the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living by delivering network services for commercial office, home broadband, security surveillance, hotel IoT, and more. Huawei's Agile POL solution will enable Dubai Creek Harbour to provide all of these services through one network and thus enable unified O&M. With this full-stack, all-scenario solution, it can quickly deploy networks, offer high-quality services, and build a leading global campus that brings premium living, entertainment, and working experiences.
The Huawei 10G GPON campus solution is built on three core value propositions:
Ultra-high bandwidth and simplified architecture for a smooth network highway: This solution uses 10G PON technology to achieve a Gbps working experience with ultra-high bandwidth and ultra-low latency, and offers high reliability that enables real-time, online services such as business management systems (BMS) and wireless Wi-Fi. The hierarchical quality of service (HQoS) mechanism will guarantee bandwidth resources for high-priority customers and services.
Integration of services and future-proof evolution: This solution will help integrate all services into one network, including fixed office access, wireless coverage in public areas, hotel IoT, and security surveillance video. Future technical upgrades and bandwidth expansions can be achieved without replacing transmission media. The platform capabilities offered by the solution can meet the demands of the next 10 years, securing the long-term investment of customers.
Rapid network deployment and proactive O&M for higher efficiency: With the plug-and-play distributed optical network units, massive devices in the Dubai Creek Harbour smart community can be deployed up to 80% faster than traditional switch networks. The visualized management platform eSight will enable proactive O&M of the community network and increase network O&M efficiency by 60%.
"We are more than happy to work with leading ICT manufacturers like Huawei," said Mr Muzamil Abdulkarim, the director of Emaar Group. "Huawei is a trustworthy all-optical network solution provider, and we hope to establish long-term partnerships with Huawei and develop high-quality services based on premium networks."
