When having a work-related trip to Akmola region, the President of Kazakhstan heard information about the data processing centre of the technical unit, Kazakhtelecom JSC.
This centre collects data from all systems of video surveillance, environmental monitoring, control and accountability of power resources, traffic management, fire safety, which are subsequently transmitted to the Smart Aqkol situational room.
The Head of State has learned about the results of the pilot project on introducing Smart City modern technologies, implemented within the framework of Digital Kazakhstan state program.
Noting the importance of the conducted work, the President of Kazakhstan underscored that the projects realized in the field of digitalization are primarily focused on improving the quality of life, creating a comfortable and safe environment for citizens.
"I have always set the task as ensuring strong leadership of the state. Focused management decisions give good results in the economy," Nursultan Nazarbayev said.
The project is aimed to comprehensively ensure the normal human life via video surveillance of road and public safety, including in educational institutions and social facilities, monitoring and management in the field of health, as well as equipping buildings and residential buildings with "smart" equipment of new generations.
The Situation Centre has all infrastructure required for organizing interdepartmental cooperation, demonstrating decisions on tactical and strategic city management, including the work of public utilities, aggregation of reliable and timely data on urban resources, and security.
Among other things, in framework of implementation, innovative approaches have been introduced in energy efficiency, environmental monitoring and crime prevention, which allowed Akkol to become the first model platform for testing information technologies and developing the Smart City concept in Kazakhstan.
