Bhopal Smart City Development Corporation Ltd. (BSCDCL) has launched India’s first cloud-based Common Integrated Data Centre, Disaster Recovery Centre and Integrated Control and Command Centre (ICCC). It is powered by Hewlett Packard (HP) Enterprise’s Universal Internet of Things (IoT) Platform.
ICCC will enable Madhya Pradesh State administration to monitor and administer multiple city civic utilities and citizen services across seven smart cities in state through central cloud. These seven cities include Bhopal, Gwalior, Jabalpur, Indore, Ujjain, Satna, and Sagar.
It will also enable state-wide monitoring of these cities from central command view and result in significant cost savings as compared to deploying full-fledged data and disaster recovery centre along with command control centres in each of these seven cities.
HP has provided an end-to-end solution for BSCDCL that combines its Universal IoT platform, industry leading servers, Edge compute systems, HP Pointnext services and broad ecosystem of partners. HP Universal IoT platform is critical to ICCC, as it adapts and integrates thousands of discrete sensors and applications on platform.
It will enable state government to remotely manage and control various citizen services via single platform. These services include Smart Parking, Smart Lighting, Smart Traffic and Transport, Smart Waste Management and Smart Water.
