UAE-based real estate company, Deyaar Development PJSC, has signed a five-year memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Chinese ICT solutions provider, Huawei.
In a statement, Deyaar revealed that it has partnered with the telecom firm in order to provide residents of its properties with advanced technologies, including smart home applications and network facilities.
Under the terms of the agreement, Huawei will implement network facilities and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) capabilities in a number of existing Deyaar properties, including Mont Rose, The Atria, and Al Barsha Hotel, as well as the developer’s headquarters and its future projects.
According to Deyaar, its partnership with Huawei also covers the development of technology plans for its Midtown residential project and the installation of Huawei’s CCTV Video Cloud system in its properties.
Saeed Al Qatami, chief executive officer of Deyaar, said: “Connected homes are no longer a futuristic concept; they are realistically achievable today.
“By entering into a five-year partnership with Huawei, we are enabling the provision of smart home and advanced technology solutions for residents in our properties across Dubai, which will be equipped with the latest network infrastructure, cloud-based safety, and smart solutions to provide an elevated standard of living for our customers.”
He continued: “Huawei is the ideal partner for us in this endeavour, and we are pleased to be joining forces with them.”
Meanwhile, Colin Hu, managing director of Huawei Enterprise (UAE), commented: “Our partnership with Deyaar is an excellent example of the expanding reach of the digital transformation here in the region.
“With technology changing at such a rapid pace, it is especially important for buildings to be equipped with scalable and sustainable network capabilities. Deyaar’s leadership rightly understand the need to develop cross-industry capabilities in IoT solutions, network security, and smart technology in order for residents to enjoy a continuous high-level experience.
“Huawei has long advocated the fostering of such integration, and is committed to forming strategic partnerships with regional players like Deyaar in order to contribute positively to the Middle East’s emerging digital ecosystem,” Hu added.
