Hytera celebrates 10th anniversary of its UAE subsidiary

Hytera, a global provider of professional communications technologies and solutions, celebrated the 10th anniversary of its subsidiary company in the United Arab Emirates with an impressive light show at Burj Khalifa during its partner summit of the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region in Dubai on 16 May.

Founded in Shenzhen, China, in 1993, Hytera has spent the past decade helping to drive digital transformation across various verticals in the Middle East, with its UAE branch as the regional powerhouse. Here, it has improved public safety communications systems whilst enhancing operations safety and efficiency for the utility, transportation and energy sectors through technologies including critical communications, control room, body-worn cameras, digital evidence management, etc.

Having played a pivotal role in reshaping the professional mobile radio (PMR) communications landscape for 10 consecutive years, Hytera UAE welcomed industry stakeholders, partners and guests to join the Hytera Global Partner Summit (HGPS)-MEA at Atlantis The Palm. Alongside celebrating a series of key partnerships, projects and achievements since 2014, the occasion was marked by the Hytera branding show featured on the iconic Burj Khalifa’s LED display — symbolising a decade of local partnership, progress and innovations across MEA territories.

“The 10th anniversary of our UAE office not only marks a significant milestone but also underscores our enduring commitment to driving innovation and fostering partnerships throughout the region,” said Stanley Song, VP of Hytera and Head of Hytera UAE.

“From the very beginning, establishing Hytera operations across the Middle East markets was pursued with an aspirational vision to meet rapidly evolving communications needs across key sectors. Fast-forward to the present, we could not be prouder with the way we’ve worked alongside our partnership ecosystem to deliver tangible, forward-facing value to the region — led by a unified commitment to innovate.”

Hytera has achieved significant market penetration in the last 10 years, as evidenced by the fact that approximately 50% of communications devices such as two-way radios, LTE and PMR dual-mode radios, and ruggedised smartphones used by public safety agencies in the region are from Hytera. The company has also built a dominant presence in sectors such as energy (70%) and mass transit (50%).

Hytera has played a pivotal role in upgrading safety and connectivity standards with its intrinsically safe (IS) explosion-proof radio series across high-risk working environments such as fire rescue, oil and gas, refinery, chemical and mining. Some of the company’s most recent projects have included establishing a Training & Factory Acceptance Test Centre in Dubai (2022) and signing a memorandum of understanding with Omani service provider Omantel (2023).

“We remain steadfast in our commitment to providing our regional partners with the latest cutting-edge communications solutions that empower organisations and further enhance safety and efficiency across sectors,” Song said. “The Middle East is a shining example for the world to emulate in terms of embracing digital transformation and, with many more opportunities on the horizon, we’re looking forward to the next 10 years and beyond.”
