The Bhopal Smart City Development Corporation Ltd (BSCDCL) has launched cloud-based Common Integrated Data Centre, Disaster Recovery Centre and Integrated Control and Command Centre (ICCC). The Integrated Control and Command Centre is powered by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Universal IoT Platform.
The ICCC will enable the Madhya Pradesh state administration to monitor and administer multiple city civic utilities and citizen services across seven cities in the state through a central cloud. These cities include Bhopal, Gwalior, Jabalpur, Indore, Ujjain, Satna, and Sagar. It will also enable state-wide monitoring of these cities from a central command view and result in significant cost savings as compared to deploying a full-fledged data and disaster recovery centre along with command control centres in each of these seven cities. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, Shivraj Singh Chouhan has assured that in next two months Integrated Command and Control Centres in all the 7 smart cities in Madhya Pradesh would be established.
HPE has provided 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. The HPE Universal IoT platform is critical to the ICCC, as it adapts and integrates thousands of discrete sensors and applications on the platform. It also enables the state government to remotely manage and control various citizen services via a single platform. These services include Smart Lighting, Smart Parking, Smart Traffic and Transport, Smart Waste Management and Smart Water.
