DEWA to extend fibre optic ducts to cover 394km

In 2021, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) will have completed the extension of 394 kilometers of Fibre Optic (FO) ducts throughout Dubai.

Since 2015 and until the end of last year, the total length of these cable ducts has increased to 3,275 kilometers. All Fibre Optic Cables in communication, data transfer, and distant operations are protected and directed by the external FO ducts.

This improves DEWA’s FO infrastructure and smart grid, as well as speeding up its digital transformation.

DEWA’s MD & CEO, Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, said the initiative is part of the company’s ongoing efforts to develop its Fibre Optic (FO) network, which is dependable, safe, and fast. It also promotes Dubai’s new digital future in key areas.

The development of FO ducts in DEWA’s infrastructure is part of the InfraX project, which is run by Digital DEWA, DEWA’s digital arm. This enables VSaaS and the Virtual Desktop Interface, which are provided through Data Hub Integrated Solutions (MORO), another Digital DEWA affiliate.
