Nedaa, in collaboration with Nokia, is demonstrating a number of its latest solutions aimed at enabling the use of technology to enable a smart, safe and more sustainable city at GITEX 2017.
The demonstrations, which are taking place at the Nedaa stand located at Sheikh Saeed Hall 3. Stand No. A1, targets LTE and 5G use cases of Nedaa private LTE network capabilities to allow different organisations to deploy smart and safe applications and provide an overall better city experience.
As part of the demonstrations, a live private LTE network for mission critical communication provided by Nedaa will be used by public safety connected officers for live streaming. Live streaming of high-definition videos to the command and control center allows real-time monitoring. This capability will enable first-responders to better address the mission critical needs through various ports including land, sea, and air.
“GITEX Technology Week is widely recognised as the leading and most specialised regional ICT platform that showcases the latest related technologies, solutions and services, giving partners the opportunity to collaborate and deliver the best experiences to end users in different sectors. During the five-day show, we are excited to highlight our partnership with Nokia, which aims to provide the latest technologies tailored to the needs of the government organisations and mission-critical sectors – exactly at a time when cities around the world are being transformed into smart cities, thanks to the interconnected infrastructures and the development of high-speed networks. This event will give us the opportunity to showcase our network capabilities and solutions designed for a smart, safe and sustainable city, which complement Dubai’s Strategic Plan and ensure the integration and unification of sustainable and effective communication systems and networks in compliance with international standards,” said Mansoor Bu Osaiba, CEO, Nedaa.
Nedaa and Nokia will also demonstrate the use of LTE-connected drones to facilitate efficiency in rescuing operations for first responders. The demonstration will showcase how drones can help in real-time road and traffic monitoring as well as other drone use cases that can be implemented through Nedaa private LTE network.
The `Deployable LTE Network’ demonstration will showcase how Nedaa’s plug-and-play solution based on Nokia Ultra Compact Network allows first responders to communicate in remote areas that could be out of coverage, as is usually the case during a natural disaster. The robust and portable solution allows the authorities to respond and make decisions better and faster for rescuing processes in remote and rural areas with limited coverage.
Nedaa will also present how Multi-access Edge Computing can be used in video analytics use cases.
In addition, Nedaa is also displaying its “New Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) and Incident Management Solution” over Nedaa LTE private network that will include call logger, dispatching, and other integrated interfaces, which allows decision makers to manage their operations with different escalation rules as well as reporting capabilities, and to serve as the central coordinating needs.
Joachim Wuilmet, Head of Customer Marketing and Communications, Nokia, MEA, said, “We are honoured to work with Nedaa to demonstrate these technologies in order to enhance the safety and quality of people’s lives. Nokia is at the forefront of driving the use of LTE in mission critical communications and in developing applications for smart cities. We are ideally placed to support Nedaa in its endeavour to provide best-in-class technological solutions for a safe, smart and sustainable city.”
