BSCDCL smart cities project selects HPE to design, build and run multiple city command center operations in parallel

BARCELONA, 26 February, 2018 – Today, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) at Mobile World Congress, announced new customer deployments in India that will enhance safety, security and provide better public services for Bhopal Smart City Development Corporation Ltd. (BSCDCL)

BSCDCL selected HPE to create India’s first cloud-based Integrated Command and Control Center (ICCC)[1]. The center has enabled the monitoring and administration of multiple city civic utilities and citizen services in each of these cities through a central cloud. It has also enabling state-wide monitoring of cities from a central command view. The selected cities include Bhopal, Gwalior, Jabalpur, Indore, Ujjain, Satna, and Sagar.

“One benefit of creating one unified command center is the significant cost savings as compared to deploying individual command centers across each city individually. Our technology solution has the capability to integrate a multitude of citizen services applications and sensors running across cities in the state of Madhya Pradesh.” said Som Satsangi, MD, HPE India.

HPE provides an end-to-end solution for BSCDCL that combines the HPE Universal IoT platform, industry leading servers, Edge compute systems, HPE Pointnext services and a broad ecosystem of partners. HPE is enabling BSCDCL to collect more of the value derived from the volume of data created by connected devices in multiple cities and use contextual analysis to provide real-time information to citizens and authorities.

“HPE has collaborated with BSCDCL to explore feasible options for our unique vision to transform Bhopal and the other locations into Smart Cities” said Chandramauli Shukla, Chief Executive Officer, Bhopal Smart City Development Corporation Limited. “The range of HPE hardware and IoT design, advisory and integration elements have seamlessly provided us with a unique, innovative, city-specific solution.”

“As cities around the world become smarter, their safety, services, and quality of life are enhanced.” said Dr. Tom Bradicich, VP & GM, IoT and Converged Edge. “HPE and its partner network is a potent combination for enabling these societal benefits with connectivity, compute, and control solutions, from the city’s edge to the cloud.”

In India, work to reach the goal of setting up 100 smart cities across the country by 2022 is being implemented at a fast pace. As the development of these smart cities becomes a priority, HPE is committed to partnering with central and state governments, as well as city administrations, to offer them cutting edge technology that can improve the quality of life of every citizen. HPE’s recently opened a Customer Experience Center in Gurugram that includes IoT-based smart city solution demonstrations that address the complex and fragmented ecosystem that exists within IoT environments.
