Du provides Dubai Taxi with wi-fi, smart screen
(29 December 2016)


du, the Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company, has entered into a new cooperative agreement with Dubai Taxi Corporation of the Roads and Transport Authority to provide country-wide wi-fi access and smart screens in 500 cars of the Dubai Airport Fleet. 

Wi-fi UAE is a country-wide initiative by du to enable wi-fi access to the public, in line with UAE Vision 2021. The smart screens will be provided through du’s partnership with Malaysian ICT solutions developer, Gigalink Solutions for Dubai Airport Taxis. 

"Our pre-eminent cooperation with du to provide internet connectivity and smart screens across our Dubai Airport fleet truly embodies Smart Dubai strategy to bring innovation and smart living to Dubai," said Dr Yousef Mohammed Al Ali, CEO of Dubai Taxi Corporation. 

"The importance of this agreement lies in the consolidation of our partnerships with various parties to improve the quality of services provided to the public – to reach the seven-star level Dubai is renowned for. Smart screens will allow the customers to view promotional advertisements, RTA services, and give visitors and tourist information about Dubai’s popular tourist destinations. Moreover, this service will offer customers transparency when it comes to the cost of the journey prior to departing." 

Dr Al Ali stressed that the project is a part of the RTA’s plans to provide innovative and distinguished services for its customers, while meeting the increasing needs of Dubai residents and visitors in time for Expo 2020. 

Carlos Domingo, chief new business & innovation officer, du, said: "As part of our efforts to adopt and deploy the latest services and smart technologies in line with the vision of the wise leadership of Dubai, to make the city the smartest in the world, du is excited to initiate this one-of-a-kind collaboration with Dubai Taxi Corporation. We see it as our responsibility to cooperate with the various entities in the public and private sectors to implement smart services and interconnected networked technologies throughout the city."
