NCT Group of Cos and Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) through TM One, signed a cooperation agreement yesterday for the integration of end-to-end digital solutions for NCT’s landmark, Selangor Smart Industrial Park (SSIP).
Both companies said the collaboration is in line with NCT’s aspirations to create a dynamic and future-ready real estate development while redefining the concept of Malaysian industrial parks, with SSIP on track to become a Managed Industrial Park certification park that is the first in Malaysia.
NCT Group MD Datuk Seri Yap Ngan Choy (picture) said in a statement that TM’s role is essential in providing the foundation and framework to realise their vision to create fully integrated end-to-end digital solutions for their customers.
“With the development and application of advanced technology, we aim to set a new benchmark to transform the design of industrial parks in the country while playing an active role in advancing Malaysia’s digital aspirations.
“It is a privilege to work with TM to ensure a full network of connectivity to power our SSIP. Coupled with the huge economic potential, SSIP will continue to improve Selangor’s position as a major investment destination in the country,” he said.
Meanwhile, TM One’s executive VP Shazurawati Abd Karim stated that they are excited to start this alliance with NCT and support their aspirations to create a smart, efficient, resilient and sustainable industrial park — which will redefine the digitisation of real estate development in Malaysia.
“In line with TM’s mission to be a human-centric technology company, our comprehensive solutions from connectivity to smart services and digital innovation will advance the quality and efficiency of businesses and residents in SSIP — bringing forward transformation for the community of the future,” she said further.
Powered by TM’s robust and secured digital infrastructure for both fixed and wireless connectivity, as well as digital solutions including smart services, ICT solutions, Cloud and cybersecurity services, among others, SSIP will offer a differentiated experience with the latest in smart innovations — becoming one of the leading developments in Malaysia to effectively implement end-to-end digitisation across all its facilities that will enable more efficient, modern and sustainable operations.
In addition to the digitalisation of business and residential facilities, SSIP will also include an artificial intelligence-managed centralised employee quarters complete with smart surveillance, supporting NCT’s close to 10,000 workforce more efficiently, in a safer and secured environment.
It will also house a smart wellness centre leveraging TM One’s end-to-end comprehensive digital solutions.
SSIP will reflect NCT’s environmental, social and governance aspiration and decarbonisation goals, with plans for 1,000 units of solar-ready factories and warehouses. Coupled with TM’s smart service solutions such as smart surveillance, smart street lights, smart buildings, smart premises, smart parking and smart community, this will also factor into creating a comfortable and greener ecosystem in SSIP.
