Infrax Maximizes Resource Value of Power Substations for FTTH in Dubai
DEWA – the exclusive provider of electricity and water services to residents of Dubai – is the world’s first digital utility, using stand-alone systems for renewable energy and storage, actively expanding adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) to provide comprehensive digital services. DEWA launched Digital DEWA as a digital arm in 2017, with the ambition to forge a new digital future for the city.
As such, InfraX, the information and communications technology (ICT) arm of Digital DEWA, focuses on connecting customers with value-added services from its data centers and the cloud. .
How to quickly deploy data centers using existing substations?
DEWA optical cable resources are installed along transmission and distribution lines Dubai, with substations covering all residential communities. He wanted to use these resources to help achieve the goals of Digital DEWA. And research has already shown that government departments, businesses and data centers all need to be urgently connected using high-quality, enterprise-class broadband services.
However, most substations do not have enough space to accommodate new ICT devices. In addition, to ensure the safety of existing services and personnel in substations, the co-deployment of ICT devices with power supply devices inevitably makes operations and maintenance (O&M) difficult. Therefore, within the substations, it is better to find a new site to build a room dedicated to communication equipment. Traditionally, construction is time consuming, involving a survey and approval process before construction can even begin. However, if a ready-to-build, flatbed, or common container solution is used instead, the specifications for protection, fireproofing, and impact resistance cannot be guaranteed. There is another way, however.
Building prefabricated data centers with Huawei
Huawei’s solution to solving equipment room construction problems like this includes the unique FusionDC1000A solution, which offers rapid deployment, high reliability, fully digital operation and maintenance, and a high level of convergence for business users. ICT devices.
A highly integrated modular design is used, the FusionDC1000A can be brought online in just one day after simple lifting and commissioning work, saving more than 85% time. FusionDC1000A uses very reliable and robust containers with a lifespan of 25 years. While an IP65 rating indicates that they are both dust and moisture resistant, the shock absorbing ability is equivalent to McNair’s Intensity 9 and comparable to that of traditional buildings. A high strength mechanical lock protects core assets, while high temperature resistant applications are ideally suited to the harsh climate of Dubai. In addition, the container is naturally isolated from DEWA’s core business, ensuring reliability and safety at all levels. An intelligent management platform implements unified power management, making unattended sites possible and dramatically simplifying the operation and maintenance experience.
The value Huawei FusionDC1000A brings has been recognized by InfraX, from deployment to O&M. Indeed, FusionDC1000A has enabled InfraX to deploy reliable and scalable services. The digitization of DEWA takes place within the framework of the Dubai 10X Initiative – launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai – which aims to propel Dubai in the future, positioning the city 10 years ahead of other cities in the world through government innovation and reform of traditional working practices.
Founded in 1987, Huawei is one of the world’s leading providers of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices. We have more than 197,000 employees and operate in more than 170 countries and regions, serving more than three billion people around the world.
