Realising smart city concepts in Iskandar Puteri

ISKANDAR PUTERI: An urban design guideline to support Iskandar Puteri’s vision for a smart city is being developed by Inneonusa Sdn Bhd.

The Smart City Urban Design Guideline (SCUDG) was launched along with its Smart City Centralised Monitoring Services (SCCMS).

SCUDG will apply to the township, offices, residential homes, offices, technology parks and retail malls.

Inneonusa is a tripartite joint venture between Telekom Malaysia Berhad, UEM Sunrise Berhad and Iskandar Investment Berhad.

The guideline aligns with the vision and mission of Iskandar Puteri Municipal Council and developers to deliver a holistic smart city living experience.

The SCCMS set up in Iskandar Puteri is a 24-hour managed security monitoring service by certified and licensed personnel.

In the event an incident is triggered, the SCCMS subscribers will be contacted for verification and a response team will be dispatched immediately.

Inneonusa chief executive officer Akram Mackeen said, “Inneonusa via TM is able to provide a Smart City platform by leveraging on TM’s integrated core infrastructure, including connectivity, data centres, ICT and cloud services.”

“This means, Inneonusa is able to support the current stakeholders of Iskandar Puteri citywide ecosystem. The SCUDG further enables us to develop the industry’s business best practices and operating processes together with our stakeholders, to deliver better experience and value to everyone within Iskandar Puteri and potentially beyond.”

He added that the service was available for all Iskandar Puteri residences at RM80 per month and could also be requested on a pay-per-use basis.

The service can also be easily replicated to other developments throughout Malaysia.

“Iskandar Puteri has achieved another milestone with its smart city concept now becoming a reality,” said Iskandar Investment Berhad chief executive officer Datuk Khairil Anwar Ahmad.

“In time, we hope to bring more smart solutions and citizen-centric technologies to increase the quality and efficiency of businesses, residential homes and environment in Iskandar Puteri.”
