Farnek aims to activate digital intelligence by connecting facilities and assets
Leading UAE-based smart and green facilities management (FM) company Farnek recently 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 200mn (US$ 54.45mn) 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. that not only provides 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, according to a press statement.
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.
“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,” commented Markus Oberlin, CEO, Farnek.
“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,” added Javeria Aijaz, Senior Director, Technology & Innovations, Farnek.
