Motorola + du Implement Mobile WiMAX Network for Dubai Metro
Motorola has announced its Home & Networks Mobility business has joined forces with UAE telecom provider, du, in the successful launch of Dubai Metro's mobile WiMAX network. Motorola's WiMAX equipment provides mobile connectivity and effective backhaul for Wi-Fi traffic on the Dubai Metro transport system train carriages as well as in the Metro stations. The Dubai Metro will be the longest fully automated rail transport system in the world. The Red Line, which is 52km long, is already functional and is expected to be followed by the Green line in early 2010. Once completed, the Metro will have 47 stations, four of which will be underground.

With the implementation of Motorola's WiMAX network, du offers its customers wireless internet access whilst travelling on the metro at speeds of up to 90km/hr using PDAs or laptops via Wi-Fi services. The Dubai Metro WiMAX initiative is part of Motorola's strategy to provide world class WiMAX technologies, solutions, and services to leading regional and global telecom operators. The deployment of the network included network design, installation and optimization. The Motorola WiMAX equipment ensures peak performance of nomadic data services to mobile customers across the Dubai Metro system.

Commenting on the implementation, which is effectively the first truly mobile WiMAX network in the country, Motorola’s Ali Amer said: “This project reaffirms Motorola’s longstanding reputation for undertaking major technology advancements and working with leading organizations. With our WiMAX technology, du will provide its customers with high-speed wireless service and all the benefits of real-time information-exchange on the go.”
