Farnek aims to activate digital intelligence by connecting facilities and assets through HITEK 4.0 using Huawei’s hi-tech solutions
Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Leading UAE-based smart and green facilities management (FM) company Farnek, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, Huawei.
Under the terms of the technical partnership, Huawei will assist Farnek with periodic knowledge transfer and support on smart initiatives, developed and supported via Farnek’s AED 200 million state-of-the-art staff accommodation centre – ‘Farnek Village’ located in Dubai South.
More specifically, Huawei will be supporting Farnek’s latest smart initiative, HITEK solution 4.0. by not only providing a combination of 5G and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, powered by AI and Huawei Smart City, but also bringing operational technologies including AI security platforms and smart plant rooms. This will contribute towards Farnek’s increased agility, efficiency and dynamism.
HITEK 4.0 uses the increased bandwidth, ultra-low latency and enhanced security, to connect assets from multiple sites, so that they can be centrally monitored and managed.
This is achieved through the concept of a digitally connected workforce and customers, to its in-house stream of technically advanced and cost-effective solutions, utilising the Internet of Things (IoT), Mobility, Cloud, Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) based technologies, amongst others.
“The system supports operational efficiencies, staff welfare, and sustainability while saving clients significant amounts of money by reducing manpower costs by up to 17% by transferring from traditional FM operational management to HITEK’s smart management,” said Markus Oberlin, CEO, Farnek.
“Delivering quality services and offering a seamless experience, which enhances our business capabilities, through our connected workforce, has always been our top priority and this is one of the main reasons why we decided to partner with Huawei,” added Oberlin.
Commenting on the technical aspect of the agreement, Javeria Aijaz, Senior Director – Technology & Innovations, Farnek, said, “Huawei is renowned for implementing the industry’s best enterprise high-speed network with 5G/Wi-Fi 6 and Smart innovative technologies which will be the basis for many of our innovative solutions moving forward, based on IoT, AI, high speed internet/network and smart gadgets.”
