Honeywell, Etisalat Misr and ACUD to deploy technology for Egypt’s smart city

Honeywell Etisalat signingHoneywell and Etisalat Misr have announced a partnership to deliver city management services for citizens at Egypt’s New Administrative Capital

The agreement, signed in the presence of executives from both sides during an official ceremony at Intersec 2020, will see Honeywell deploy advanced Internet of Things (IoT) software and hardware solutions for the new City Operations Center (COC) as part of Phase 1 of the project.

As reported earlier, the collaboration will result in the establishment of a state-of-the-art City Operations Centre (COC).

Honeywell will provide the IoT platform underpinning the central COC platform that will enable data analytics, a city-wide management dashboard, smart city services citizen engagement portal and mobile application capabilities. This will support administrative functions and deliver smart city services for citizens, as well as public and private sector entities, in the new capital.

“Leading Egypt’s most ambitious development project to date, ACUD is committed to leveraging innovation as well as services to deliver a smart city based on the principles of safety, security, productivity and sustainability. We are glad to be building on our existing relationship with Honeywell through this collaboration and are confident this takes us one step closer to achieving our vision,” said Ahmed Zaki Abdeen, chairman, administrative capital for urban development.

Honeywell technology will power advanced management systems for smart parking and smart utility services for electricity, water and gas. This will include street lighting, smart metering, smart grid monitoring services and integration with smart digital signage management, billing and financial systems. In addition, the technology deployed will include Honeywell’s latest cyber-proof services.

Egypt’s new capital, one of the world’s largest smart city projects, is being built in three phases 45 km east of Cairo and will expand to cover more than 700 sq km once complete.

The partnership with Etisalat is an extension of Honeywell’s scope in the New Administrative Capital. In February 2019, Honeywell in collaboration with MTI, announced it will deliver city-wide security and surveillance systems for the Administrative Capital for Urban Development (ACUD). This effort will integrate security systems across the capital into a single point of control, known as an Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC).

Honeywell’s partnership with ACUD and Etisalat reinforces the company’s commitment to developing smart cities in Egypt and enabling effective skills and knowledge transfer, in line with the goals of Egypt Vision 2030. The company’s diverse hardware and software solutions promote greater safety, security and energy efficiency for cities and buildings, leveraging data analytics and cloud technologies.
