Partnership Details

The agreement was signed on December 9, 2022, to formalize the collaboration between PPj and Favoriot in setting up a municipal-operated IoT platform. The first use case of the project involves integrating the existing Putrajaya multitype sensors. The partnership falls under the Single Site Innovation Sandbox category. Favoriot will provide an open-system IoT middleware that can interoperate with different kinds of IoT sensors from multi-vendors. This allows for integrating multi-vendor environments that conform to standard protocols and are readily displayed and managed by the Putrajaya Command Centre.

Smart City IoT Platform

The Favoriot platform will enable PPj to integrate IoT solutions and display them on a single dashboard in Putrajaya Command Centre. This provides a single platform for managing and displaying data from multiple IoT solutions, preventing the need for multiple dashboards to view data. The platform conforms to standard protocols and is easily controlled by the Command Centre.

Perbadanan Putrajaya’s Smart City Blueprint aims to create a well-connected city with an efficient IoT infrastructure. By expanding IoT’s development and use cases in the city, PPj is heading towards including infrastructure and environmental monitoring in its IoT solutions. According to Dato’ Fadlun bin Mak Ujud, President of PPj, IoT’s impact is one of the things that everyone is talking about nowadays, and the Sandbox initiative gives new innovative solutions to manage the city better. This Sandbox initiative also provides opportunities for local entrepreneurs and start-ups to put their resources into further facilitating urban living.

Benefits of the Smart City IoT Platform

The Favoriot Smart City IoT platform is a tool to boost and create innovative Smart City solutions and a developer tool for new Startups or existing IoT companies to build their IoT solutions. Putrajaya City will become a place where local talent gets their IoT solution tested and certified in a real-city environment. Dr. Mazlan Abbas, CEO of Favoriot, hopes that Putrajaya will become a model for other cities to emulate and develop a similar “innovate and trial-before-commercial” approach.

IoT Training

Favoriot, in partnership with PPj, will also provide IoT training at Putrajaya’s premises to encourage the growth of IoT talents. The Sandbox project is implemented on the Build-Operate and Transfer Model, where PPj will operate and manage the Smart City IoT Platform. The project has already achieved a critical milestone, with several existing IoT solutions integrated and now working in Putrajaya Command Centre.

Conclusion

The collaboration between PPj and Favoriot marks a significant step toward building a Smart City IoT platform in Putrajaya. The project’s success will depend on the ability of the platform to integrate various IoT solutions and provide a single dashboard for managing and displaying data. Additionally, the platform will serve as a developer tool for new startups or existing IoT companies to build their IoT solutions. The collaboration also provides a platform for IoT training, encouraging the growth of IoT talents. The Sandbox project’s implementation of the Build-Operate and Transfer Model is an excellent way for PPj to manage and operate the Smart City IoT Platform.
