The event, held December 1-4 under the patronage of H.E. Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, President of the Arab Republic of Egypt, highlighted Egypt’s digitalisation ambitions and drive to integrate advanced technologies into the country’s key sectors.
“At the heart of all smart buildings and cities is stateof- the-art technology, enabled by IIoT systems and advanced data analytics. As leaders in this field, we are pleased to be implementing cuttingedge technologies for the New Administrative Capital in Egypt, one of the world’s largest smart city projects,” said Khaled Hashem, president, Honeywell, Egypt and Libya. “At Cairo ICT 2019, we demonstrated the latest digital platforms and solutions that will ultimately lead to a smarter, safer, more efficient and more prosperous society.”
Visitors and industry audiences at Cairo ICT were introduced to Honeywell’s industry-leading Command and Control Platform (CCP) solution for the first time. CCP enables urban developers to build a city-level digital platform that integrates data from various connected systems like city surveillance, access control system, city vehicle, building and roadside sensors. It aggregates, stores, and analyses the data to efficiently support city administrative services.
With plans for the new administrative capital now well underway, Egypt is building a fourth generation smart city that will respond to the growing demand for more efficient and sustainable urban development. The project will redefine smart living in the country and help enable a competitive and diversified economy in line with the national development objectives outlined by Egypt Vision 2030.
