ADMCC taps Dell EMC for control centre project
Platform will enable IT staff to focus on productivity rather than support the infrastructure
The Abu Dhabi Monitoring and Control Centre (ADMCC) has announced a partnership with Dell EMC to meet to meet its surveillance data needs.
ADMCC will deploy Dell EMC ViPR Controller storage automation software as it seeks to reduce human error and the number of staff focusing on managing the infrastructure. This move comes in light of the government agency efforts to better pre-empt and respond to emergencies and safeguard the city’s inhabitants.
Surveillance cameras are a critical building block of an intelligent city, which can provide real-time data on a number of city services such as police and emergency services, electricity, water, lighting, and traffic management. However, eliminating human error is a key driver to increase operational efficiency of video streams. To this end, ADMCC, through the project with Dell EMC, aims to deploy to build an advanced control centre and manage mission critical applications, which can monitor and analyse video streams from surveillance cameras.
His Excellency Saeed Saif Al Neyadi, Director General at Abu Dhabi Monitoring and Control Centre said, “We are proud to announce this strategic step in our journey of innovation and sustainability. Making a city safer and secure directly contributes to its ‘intelligence’, hence a strong ICT infrastructure is critical to our ability to equip city services with new tools to improve public services and resources. By leveraging Dell EMC solutions to create an agile, highly available and space efficient monitoring and control centre, we hope to realize our digital agenda that is to create not only intelligent, but sustainable cities with higher quality of life for our citizens.”
ADMCC’s control centre will act as a hub enabling the capital to develop capabilities of exercising situational intelligence, such as intelligent traffic management.
Fady Richmany, senior director and general manager, United Arab Emirates at Dell EMC said, “We aim to enable ADMCC to achieve their vision of an intelligent, innovation-backed city that offers its citizens and community a sustainable future and improved quality of life.”
