Piraeus Port Authority
The Shenzhen-headquartered Huawei Technologies has won the open tender to redesign and replace the network infrastructure used by the Piraeus Port Authority (PPA).
The scheme comprises requirements analysis; designing of project implementation; supply, installation, and adaptation of equipment (incl. internet routers, firewall protection, and switches); as well as transition, training, and support.
By modernizing its network infrastructure, the PPA, which is run by the Chinese COSCO Shipping, will enjoy network services of guaranteed availability and high-speed data rates from 20 Gbps up to 80 Gbps, capable of supporting any future needs, as well as shielding against network threats.
"PPA SA with this important cooperation with Huawei is taking another step towards a new era of providing high quality services, using the most advanced IT communication solutions," Fu Chengqiu, CEO, PPA SA, said.
Mr. Chenle, Managing Director, Huawei Greece, added, "We are very pleased that Huawei Greece will actively contribute to the modernization of Piraeus Port Authority, the largest port of the country. In accordance to the range of the operational sectors of PPA, namely container, cruise, passengers and cars, and the particular demands in the areas of performance, reliability, and security of its network infrastructure, Huawei will provide solutions based on the best international design practices and the group’s latest technology products in order to meet PPA’s operational demands."
