Inneonusa Sdn Bhd's Integrated Operations Centre (IOC) in Iskandar Puteri. Inneonusa is a joint venture between Telekom Malaysia Bhd, UEM Sunrise Bhd and Iskandar Investmemt Bhd.

KUALA LUMPUR: The country’s first integrated operations centre (IOC) for Internet of Things (IoT) operations of smart city services has been set up by Inneonusa Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM), UEM Sunrise and Iskandar Investment Bhd.

TM, which is the majority shareholder in Inneonusa, said in a statement that with the centralised command centre in Iskandar Puteri, Johor, Inneonusa would be able 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. 

Telekom Malaysia group chief executive officer Tan Sri Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa said in a statement: “The aim of the IOC is to manage the operations of smart services nationwide such as smart ICT, safety and security, smart mobility, city-wide services, energy and facilities management, digital signages as well as citizen portal.

“The efficiency of the IOC relies on the information and communications by a large pool of sensor network. This means optimising a city’s operations to make it a better place to live, work and play for its community as outlined in our promise, Life Made Easier.”

UEM Sunrise executive director Datuk Izzaddin Idris said his company was thrilled to be part of this broader smart city initiative as it integrated a diverse range of technologies for safe cities.

“This bodes well with the Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design principle - a multi-disciplinary approach to deter criminal behaviour implemented at our various projects and built environments which is in line with our positioning in Iskandar Puteri as a value-driven developer of smart communities surrounded by catalytic developments creating a unique lifestyle,” he said.
