Security and safety challenges rank among the most pressing issues of modern times, and Bhopal is not too far behind in this either. To enhance safety, security and provide better public services for the Bhopal Smart City Development Corporation Ltd (BSCDCL), Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced new customer deployments in India.

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

Said Som Satsangi, Managing Director, HPE India: “One benefit of creating one unified command center is the significant cost savings as compared to deploying individual command centers across each city individually.”

“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, CEO, BSCDCL. “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 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.
