Dubai has unveiled the first Smart Street Solution in the Middle East region, at a high-tech park in Dubai, offering WiFi access and real-time news display besides incorporating sensors monitoring temperature, humidity and air quality.
The solution has been installed on a pole in Dubai Silicon Oasis, the free zone technology park, by its regulator Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority in collaboration with ICT solutions provider Huawei.
The smart street solution incorporates a number of features geared towards creating a friendly and secure environment for the community. Digital signage capability enables real-time display of news and information, while the integrated WiFi transmitter offers internet access within a 300 meter radius.
The CCTV solution ensures safety of businesses through intelligent surveillance while environmental sensors monitor outdoor temperature, humidity and air quality. The integrated nature of the solution means it is “future ready”, or ready to add additional services and capabilities in a cost effective and timely manner. In addition, the centrally controlled smart street solution allows greater energy efficiency and management.
The installation of the first smart street pole in DSO will enable collaboration with strategic partners to test this new smart solution to evaluate its feasibility and scalability for large-scale implementation across hi-tech park, as well as the city of Dubai, said Muammar Al Katheeri, Vice President of Engineering Management at DSOA.
He said that this contributes to the vision of transforming Dubai into smartest and happiest cities in the world, as the authority has partnered with Huawei to implement the first Smart Street Solution in the Middle East region.
