Project Background

Dubai Creek Harbour is a leading international smart community located at heart of a bold new vision for Dubai developed by Emaar Properties. The mixed-use development offers over 7.3 million SM of residential space and 3.2 million SM of retail, hotel, office, cultural and community space, creating a high density urban district capable of accommodating over 200,000 residents, and 450,000 living and working population. The master plan incorporates a permeable accessibility network composed of streets, squares, parks and plazas, allowing people a range of choices in moving from place to place within the community. The mega-development covers 6 square kilometre and is described as "the World of Tomorrow." Dubai Creek Harbor represents the frontier in contemporary life and work with spectacular cultural offerings, world class residences and offices. BMS service, video and Wi-Fi backhaul consumes huge bandwidth in the density scattered high-rises. Emaar aims to construct an all-optical 10GPON network with advantages such as large bandwidth, high security and reliability, flexible. All of which can provide an OPEX saving and future-oriented network.

• Huawei Campus OptiX Solution

Huawei has more than 20 years of experience in the optical access field and has been the global leader in the PON field for more than 10 years. In the Campus OptiX solution, Huawei introduces several leading and innovative technologies, including the XGS-PON Plus(20G-PON) solution that provides a rate higher than 10 Gbit/s, the DQ ODN solution that accurately restores ODN live network information by collecting and identifying image information, and the industry's first AFwP solution. These technologies depend on Huawei's continuous R&D investment in the optical access field.

Emaar Creek harbor has been built with Huawei 10GPON solution to support the Digital Media, Broadcast Music and Wi-Fi backhaul, BMS. Symmetrical 10G GPON are suitable for high-bandwidth service and with 40km long distance coverage which can meet the requirements for the large community. Use ONU EG8084P for outdoor service such as Digital Media for Advertisements & real-time live streaming, Music and WI-FI backhaul, which can meet outdoor high-temperature environment, and ONU EG8080P for indoor service such as BMS. And use Huawei unified O&M system eSight to manage the whole system, with centralize configuration, and ONUs are plug and play.

• SmartAX EA5800 Series

Full-service distributed Optical Line Terminal (OLT) - building green, ultra-broadband, and intelligent aggregation access networks. The EA5800 series multi-service access devices feature distributed architecture and provide users with a unified transmission platform for broadband, wireless, video, and surveillance services. The EA5800 provides GPON, XG-PON, XGS-PON, GE, and 10 GE access, and supports multiple network construction modes, including POL, FTTH, FTTB, and FTTC. One optical network covers all services, simplifying the network architecture and reducing OPEX. The EA5800 is available in small, medium, and large specifications, making it suitable for every scenario.

• EchoLife EG8084P

The Echolife EG8084P is an industrial ONU developed for governments, the transportation industry, and large industrial parks. The EG8084P supports high-performance forwarding capabilities that deliver high-quality experience with Internet and video backhaul services. It can be installed in an indoor or outdoor rack or network box, mounted on a wall, or installed on DIN rails.

• eSight NMS Platform

Huawei’s unified software suite for planning, operating, and maintaining complex enterprise ICT infrastructure — from global, converged networks and data centers to multimedia and video communications — that includes the facilities necessary for delivering high-performance, resilient IT services. eSight provides an open, flexible platform that supports infrastructure and devices from third-party providers, and makes it easy to develop custom management applications. From planning and design to provisioning and troubleshooting, the eSight Management System improves O&M efficiency, reduces costs, optimizes resource utilization, and ensures responsive, high-availability systems.

Solution value

Huawei has cooperated with more than 48 partners to promote the prosperity of the POL industry. With the higher requirements of speed and qualities of bandwidth, Huawei’s fiber based network will bring Dubai Creek Harbour more advantages.

  • Large bandwidth for multi-service: Suitable for such bandwidth-hungry services as video and Wi-Fi backhaul with symmetrical 10G GPON. HQoS guarantees network quality for multi-service.
  • Safe & Reliable: with GPON Type B Protection guarantees “0” service interruption (video, Wi-Fi and BMS) during network fault, switching within 50ms, saving OPEX. 10G GPON Bi-Directional AES algorithm ensures data security.
  • Flexible and Flatter Network: 40km super long distance coverage, saving CAPEX. Only 2 layer network, future network upgrade reusing ODN, smooth evolution from 10GPON to 100G PON.

“Dubai Creek Harbour will be another milestone project of Emaar Properties’ journey towards to an international leading real-estate giant. Empowered with Huawei’s edge-cutting technologies, we are aiming to build a world class, green, and smart community with multi-functions.
