SHENZHEN, May 24 (Bernama) -- Huawei Technologies (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Huawei Malaysia) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Universiti Kuala Lumpur (UniKL) to collaborate on academic and research initiatives focused on smart city technology, urban disaster prevention, and other mutually beneficial activities and programmes aimed at technological innovation.

A joint statement issued said that under the collaboration, a Huawei Intelligent Operation Centre (IOC) would be established at UniKL British Malaysian Institute (UniKL BMI), dedicated to research and development (R&D) opportunities, as well as to empower UniKL with the capacity to provide authorised short-course training to its students and the public, while fostering technological innovation and practical training.

It said Huawei Malaysia and UniKL would also embark on the exchange of academic and research information or material specifically on Flood Monitoring Control.

The MoU signing ceremony was witnessed by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi during his visit to Huawei’s headquarters, here, in conjunction with his official visit to China from May 22 to June 1.

The MoU was signed by Huawei Malaysia chief Executive Officer (CEO) Simon Sun while UniKL was represented by its president and CEO, Assoc Prof Ir Dr Azman Senin.

Simon in a statement explained the Huawei IOC was a decision-making assistance model that made predictions using massive amounts of industry-specific data.

“It enables the efficient deployment of manpower and resources in critical situations, such as floods, leading to greatly improved city governance.

“The IOC that will be set up at UniKL BMI will be a powerful educational, research and development tool for both students and researchers alike as we head towards a connected, intelligent future of smart cities,” he said.

Meanwhile, Azman said the MoU was a testament to the university’s commitment to providing its students with the best learning opportunities and resources.

"This MoU opens up new horizons for UniKL and we look forward to a fruitful collaboration with Huawei Malaysia that will benefit our students, researchers, and the broader community," he said.

UniKL is a wholly owned higher learning institution by Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA), an agency under the Ministry of Rural and Regional Development.

UniKL’s collaborative ties with Huawei Malaysia go back to 2012, when UniKL became a Huawei University Teaching Laboratory.

The primary aim of the most recent collaboration with Huawei Malaysia is to strengthen, promote, and develop capacity-building cooperation based on equality and mutual benefit.
