Sheikh Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, wants everything connected and automated – car parks, power grids, roads and government services. One partner the city’s administrators have chosen to help make their plans possible is the Chinese firm, Huawei.

According to Safder Nazir, the regional vice president of smart cities and IoT:

“As Huawei continues to provide solutions and services to multiple Dubai industries including healthcare, education, finance, transportation, and energy, standardizing more components of ICT infrastructure – particularly in the IoT era – will help foster this necessary development.”

Nazir adds that smart cities usually provide its citizens with a better quality of live by better services provided by the government, cleaner environmental practices and improved experiences for the cities’ citizens and tourists. They will focus on making Dubai “user-centric and user-friendly”. With over 100 smart cities on Huawei’s track record, it’ll be no problem for the company to help Dubai make it a smart city as well.
