Visionaire and Huawei deploy holistic ICT network infrastructure solution for Academy’s new state-of-the-art Digital Learning Center
Dubai, United Arab Emirates – 21 October, 2015: Rabdan Academy, the UAE’s first educational institution for world-class vocational training services that cover the safety, security, defense and emergency preparedness sectors, has appointed Visionaire as ICT solutions provider, to deploy a comprehensive ICT network at its new state-of-the-art Excellence Digital Learning Center in Abu Dhabi mostly using Huawei Network products.
In line with its commitment to offer state-of-the-art learning experiences for its students and create an environment that is conducive to modern learning, Rabdan Academy selected Visionaire to deploy a fully integrated AV and ICT, using Huawei network systems, allowing both its staff and students to enjoy faster connectivity and a streamlined secure access to the Academy’s education tools.
Commenting on the ICT implementation, Khamis Awadh Abulani, ICT Advisor for Rabdan Academy said: “Rabdan Academy is a believer in excellence in education through technology with a mission to drive future-class student learning experiences through innovation. We are therefore pleased to have worked with Visionaire and Huawei to create new ways of enhancing learning at our new Excellence Learning Center in Abu Dhabi, with the introduction of its leading ICT network solutions, and the latest in classroom technology.”
Strengthening its commitment to developing the education sector in the UAE, Huawei have worked closely with Visionaire and Rabdan Academy to complete the implementation of its solutions at the institutions Learning Center in the UAE. Huawei is a strong advocate of helping educators empower youth by equipping them with the right knowledge and tools to help them grow professionally.
Mr. Terry He, President of Huawei Enterprise Middle East said: “In an increasingly digital age, many educators are taking steps to deploy an ICT infrastructure based on campus wide networks that are agile and can easily accommodate new service requests on demand. This has been a prevalent trend in the UAE in light of its Smart City vision to develop into a digital knowledge economy. Being involved in such collaboration with Rabdan Academy is an important part of Huawei’s commitment to enriching the region’s education sector and building a better society through sharing knowledge and ICT expertise.”
Huawei has already modernized learning and development through several education solutions rolled out in the Middle East, such as the deployment of its Cloud Virtual Desktop (VDI) solution in 35 training colleges at Technical Vocation and Training Corporation (TVTC) in Saudi Arabia. The solution has since been able to help the educational institute create seamless integration between college applications and help reduce IT maintenance costs through reducing the level of power consumption by 80% and less need for hardware investment.
Ms. Aneeta Gupta, President and CEO of Visionaire said: “In every aspect of our design, we took into consideration Rabdan’s technology mission to pursue effective ways for learning spaces to be enhanced for better collaboration. Other than working with Huawei on the network infrastructure and its subsystems, we have provided the complete end-to end ICT and AV solutions for Rabdan including video conferencing, wireless media collaboration systems, lecture recording, room signage and schedule, and control systems. I can say that the ICT design at Rabdan marks the success of the integrated future of AV and IT.”
Rabdan Academy is a strategic initiative of Tawazun, a UAE based Investment Company focused on specialized manufacturing in the defense sector. In 2013, Huawei had created a secure network environment to support Tawazun’s growth. This included the deployment of a smart campus networking solution based on IPv6 in its integrated manufacturing zone at Tawazun Industrial Park (TIP), to create a backbone infrastructure that enables seamless wired and wireless connectivity, a highly secured network and higher bandwidth to centrally manage and monitor its physical security. The project was the first IPv6 network solution to be deployed in the Middle East for the industrial, manufacturing and defense sectors.
