In line with the UAE's smart city vision for a sustainable future, du, from Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC), is collaborating with NXN (Formerly Nexgen), leader in smart cities and next generation technology innovation domains, to bring smart energy management solutions to buildings and facilities across the UAE.
The partnership will help achieve optimal energy efficiency metrics that adhere to environmental legislation, as well as delivering extensive facility intelligence through a universal dashboard that seamlessly manages and monitors energy consumption in buildings.
du's partnership with NXN provides advanced facility intelligence functionality that can be overseen on a single platform to help users monitor, validate, predict, and control all energy-related expenses while informing users' decisions regarding energy use and allocation. Their collaborative solutions will offer real-time management and monitoring of energy assets from an Integrated Operations Centre (IOC) using connectivity and end-to-end solutions by du to operate on a NXN powered platform.
"At du, our environmental sustainability is based on integrity and transparency. These are among our top business commitments as we make progress in Smart City transformation. Reducing energy use and water and electricity consumption is an undeniably vital component of building a sustainable future, and a driving force behind the environmental initiatives being executed all over the UAE today," said Jihad Tayara, VP - ICT Commercial, du. "By joining hands with a reliable partner such as NXN, we are combining unique tools and expertise at our disposal, to offer cloud based energy management solutions by offering Energy Management as a Service from our world class data centre in the UAE."
