The University of Canada is Reborn
Cairo, the capital of Egypt, is a spectacular city that sets along the Nile River. Founded around 3000 B.C. in Egypt’s ancient kingdom, Cairo is a long-standing political, economic, cultural, and commercial center for the Middle East. The population of Cairo has increased from 3.6 million in 1960 to 20.4 million in 2019, with growth currently projected to reach 28.5 million people by 2035.
Cairo’s urban border has already expanded to the edge of the pyramids, and the chaotic city contrasts with this ancient ‘world miracle.’ The Egyptian government decided to build a new administrative capital for 5 million people in the desert 60 kilometers west of Suez and 60 kilometers east of Cairo — a development now known as ‘New Cairo.’ It is well understood that quality education is an important source for sustainable development in ‘New Cairo.’
The University of Canada in Egypt (UCE) is the first international Canadian branch campus in Egypt that will open in the New Administrative Capital. The students will get the chance to transfer and study in Canada and will be given equal opportunity to apply for internships in pursuit of their careers.
In 2018, UCE took a leading position in support of the new capital by launching a branch campus with the encouragement of the Egyptian government. With a total of 12 buildings, the new UCE campus has become a benchmark for attracting additional investment.
More than 1,000 information nodes have been deployed on the new UCE campus. The construction of new classroom and library buildings has been completed, and the installation of an ICT infrastructure comprised of an optical network, wireless coverage, small data center, and cabling services is underway.
All-Optical and Agile
Campus networks are developing toward smart, generalized, and shared networks; and teaching is transforming from infusion modes to interactive and social modes like Massive Open Online Courses (MooCs).
Office networks must now cope with increased traffic and O&M pressure caused by the heavy load of scientific research and management systems. Wi-Fi access points, such as those in stadiums and canteens, were facing the challenge of handling excessively high numbers of users. UCE needed a campus network capable of handling heavy workloads and large numbers of connected devices with high speed, wide coverage, easy maintenance, and the capacity to expand.
Considering the customer’s requirement for an innovative solution, Huawei proposed the AgilePOL solution for an all-optical and agile campus. Since no such solution had previously been deployed in Egypt, UCE’s consultants, technical teams, and local channels had concerns about AgilePOL’s technical capabilities, operating costs, and post-delivery performance.
The value of Huawei’s solution stood out among competing vendors with the following highlights:
UCE chose Huawei to help build its new ICT infrastructure and make the institution a beacon for smart campuses from around the world.
Lighting New Cairo
Huawei’s AgilePOL agile campus solution is built to support campus network operations and provide excellent user experiences. The UCE campus has learned that it can now easily adapt modern teaching practices that will allow teachers and students access to various Internet education applications anytime and anywhere.
“We are looking forward to the future development of the new campus,” Canadian International College (CIC) President Dr. Magdy M. ElKady said. “We hope that Huawei’s innovative ICT solutions can bring better network experiences to students and enable new jobs, education, and life in New Cairo.”
Successful network deployment for UCE’s New Cairo branch has provided customers and partners with a large amount of trust and expectations in Huawei’s AgilePOL solution for an all-optical and agile campus. In addition, Huawei has attracted the attention of hospitals, governments, and hotels with similar scenarios — lighting the beacon for the next phase of ICT construction in New Cairo.
