Huawei Builds Smart Airports For Dubai.

A Huawei cargo vessel loaded with computers, mobile phones and prefabricated modular data centres arrives the world's seventh largest container depot- the Jebel Ali Port Dubai.

Dubai Airports which has been characterised  with rapid business growth, eco-friendliness and energy conservation processes has several data centres provided by vendors in the airport business space.

However, this new business centre is designed by Huawei to have 100 service cabinets with up to 10kW/rack in a single cabinet. Huawei prefabricated modular data centre is adopted to build the new data centre for Dubai Airports.

With the Dubai Expo 2020 approaching and increasing pressure mounting on the Arabian airport to perform more efficiently the airport  seeks to obtain full Tier 111 certificates from Uptime Institute for both design and construction. Thus, the data centre must ensure an availability of 99.98 per cent and an annual downtime within 1.6 hours.

The modular centre solution saves nearly half of the time and construction costs to erect a traditional facility also saving engineering costs and floor area space.

"Dubai Airports is joining forces with key stakeholders to design product innovation and operational improvements that will deliver on the sector's ambition; endure world-class customer experience from 'cloud to curb'"explains Mr. Peter R. Moore, Director of Development (Design) Dubai Airports.

Meanwhile, in a worldwide survey conducted by International Air Transport Association (IATA) in 2016: 64% of respondents prefer to board aircraft using electronic boarding passes on their mobile phones; 39% prefer electronic bag tags; 61% expect to track their baggage throughout their journeys similar to the ways courier companies allow them to track parcels while 52% say their acceptable queue time at immigration is between 5-10 minutes.
