The Hajj attracts millions of people each year. The 18-kilometer Makkah Metro that connects the holy sites of Arafat, Muzdalifah and Mina is one of the main means of transportation for those pilgrims. Although the Makkah Metro is only open to the public during the annual Hajj, it is one of the busiest metro routes in the world during this period.

Given that the previous communication system had been running for almost 10 years and became inconvenient and costly to maintain, a replacement of the system was urgently needed. Drawing on its extensive experience in the railway industry, Hytera proposed to the Saudi Railway Company an integrated solution that covers the manufacturing, delivery and installation of the communication system.

“As this year Saudi expected to welcome over 1 million people for the biggest Hajj pilgrimage since the outbreak of the pandemic, the challenge for the transportation system was huge,” said Stanley Song, Deputy General Manager of Hytera Overseas Sales Department. “To ensure a safe Hajj season for pilgrims taking the Makkah Metro, we decided to customize most of the equipment even under a tight schedule.”

The hardware, which includes 5 TETRA base stations and 34 TETRA on-board radios, as well as the combing system and antenna system were all customized to for the optimal performance of the overall system. The tailor-made on-board radios were engineered to connect with the Public Address Systems to enable broadcasting to passengers’ cabin in case of emergencies.

In addition, during Hajj 2022, 2 engineers were assigned by Hytera to work in the operation control center 24/7 consecutively to guarantee safe and smooth running of the system.

Hytera’s involvement in the Hajj was not limited to the Metro. It also provided diversified services to the Ministry of Health, SAUDIA (Saudi Arabian Airlines) at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah (the gateway to the holy city of Makkah), Saudi National Water Company and other organizations to ensure the success of Hajj 1443.

Survey Reveals Tech Trust Gap Amongst UK Bank Customers3.10.2022 15:38:00 CEST | Press release

New research by Mitek, a global leader in digital identity and digital fraud prevention, and YouGov has found that banking customers’ trust in technology remains low in the United Kingdom. Only half (52%) of UK bank customers feel that technology like artificial intelligence (AI) and biometrics positively impacts their trust in banks, and only 5% would prefer all interactions with AI/automated systems when engaging banks. These findings are based on a survey of more than 2,200 adults across age groups and UK regions. The industry has undergone a rapid digital transformation in the last few years, with Gartner predicting IT spending by banking and investment services firms growing by 6.1% by end of 2022, to US$623 billion worldwide. While nearly eight in 10 (79%) customers are satisfied with their bank’s digital experience (rating it “good”, “very good”, “or “excellent”), banks are in danger of facing a market-driven stalemate in their research and development should the tech trust gap
