By Digital News Asia July 4, 2016

- IOC will serve as centre for township, commercial and residential services
TELEKOM Malaysia Bhd (TM), via Inneonusa – a tripartite joint venture between TM, UEM Sunrise Bhd and Iskandar Investment Bhd (IIB) – has launched its Integrated Operations Centre (IOC) in Iskandar Puteri in the southern state of Johor.
The IOC, which it described as the first ever in Malaysia, will serve as a centralised command centre for Internet of Things (IoT) operations of smart city services.
This would enable Inneonusa to provide a single nationwide monitoring dashboard to coordinate operations of smart services involving physical devices and sensors, vehicles, buildings as well as incidents and events, TM said in a statement.
“The aim of the IOC is to manage the operations of smart services nationwide – including smart ICT, safety and security, smart mobility, city-wide services, energy and facilities management, digital signages as well as citizen portals,” said TM group chief executive officer Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa.
A smart city operates via people, embedded electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity that enables data to be collected, exchanged and analysed into valuable and timely information at the IOC, TM said.
The IOC, in turn, provides 24/7 support throughout the year via artificial intelligence (AI) based proactive monitoring with services such as situational awareness, smart services analytics, emergency response, as well as alarm management, it added.
“Smart services which are knitted together by the IoT offer the prospects of people and businesses doing more with less in enhancing safety and security to create sustainable and privileged communities,” said Izzaddin Idris (pic), executive director of UEM Sunrise and also group managing director/ chief executive officer of UEM Group Bhd.
“UEM Sunrise is thrilled to be part of this broader smart city initiative as it integrates a diverse range of technologies for safe cities,” he added.
In Iskandar Puteri, smart services are being developed for the various property development projects owned by UEM Sunrise and IIB such as Puteri Harbour, East Ledang, Ledang Heights, Gerbang Nusajaya, Southern Industrial and Logistics Clusters (SiLC), and EduCity.
“The launch of IOC reflects our continued dedication towards sustainability, which is part of our core vision for the region,” said IIB president and chief executive officer Syed Mohamed Syed Ibrahim.
“The partnership reflects the dedication and commitment of key stakeholders in Iskandar Malaysia to creating a vibrant and attractive business and lifestyle environment,” he added.
