DEWA completes extension of 350 kilometres of Fibre Optic ducts across Dubai

In 2022, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) will have completed the expansion of more than 350 kilometers of fibre optic (FO) ducts throughout various Dubai areas.

This makes the total length of these cable ducts from 2015 to December 31, 2022, 3,634 kilometers longer. This is one of DEWA’s ongoing efforts to accelerate its digital transformation and support its smart infrastructure.

All of the Fibre Optic (FO) cables used for communication, data transfer, and remote operations are directed and protected by the external FO ducts. This improves DEWA’s FO smart grid and infrastructure. In addition, it ensures that integrated and connected services that run continuously meet the highest standards of sustainability, accountability, and availability.

The MD and CEO of DEWA, HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, stated that DEWA is committed to continuously expanding the FO network, which is secure, dependable, and fast. Additionally, it makes important contributions to Dubai’s new digital future. Additionally, DEWA adapts to the requirements of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

“DEWA backs the Dubai 10X initiative, which was started by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai. This initiative helps Dubai move ahead of other cities ten years in the future. This is being accomplished through government innovation and a rethinking of conventional employment practices.
We have made significant progress in this area thanks to Digital DEWA, DEWA’s digital arm that aims to rethink utility. DEWA has a cutting-edge, adaptable infrastructure for managing facilities and services using cutting-edge, disruptive technologies like those from the Fourth Industrial Revolution. These systems are smart and integrated. Al Tayer added, “These include AI, blockchain, energy storage, the Internet of Things, and others.”

In order to enhance smart services, Digital DEWA’s data center, and cloud computing value-added services, DEWA’s FO network supports the InfraX Network Operations Centre, which DEWA implemented in collaboration with Huawei. Under Digital DEWA, InfraX is a subsidiary of DEWA. In addition, the fiber network plays a crucial role in expanding the UAE’s use of cutting-edge communication services that comply with international standards. This is accomplished by leasing out a portion of DEWA’s dark fiber networks for communication services through partnerships with a variety of government agencies and businesses.
