mPrest to Deliver Smart City Application with Telecom Bezeq

By Ken Briodagh August 23, 2017

mPrest, a global provider of mission-critical monitoring and control software for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), has announced a collaboration with Bezeq, Israel's largest telecom provider, to deliver a Smart City/Smart Campus software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering. The collaboration is designed to bring mPrest's system-of-systems expertise to smart cities, integrating all of their IIoT systems, from video cameras to waste and water management to environmental and parking monitoring.

Bezeq's Smart City Application will use mPrest's software, used in the Iron Dome missile defense system, to connect sensors and smart systems across smart cities with advanced analytics, monitoring and control capabilities, including Video Management Systems, Smart Parking, Environmental Monitoring and Waste Management. The application also includes tools for monitoring public sentiment on city-related issues, a smart irrigation solution and smart water monitoring. These functions will help cities collect, analyze, manage and provide invaluable insights from complex sets of data in real-time. The data and insights cities receive from this application will allow them to provide a safer environment and better service to their citizens, together with enhanced bi-directional communications.

"With the Smart City SaaS solution that we are creating in partnership with mPrest, our municipal and campus customers will soon have access to a highly customizable, flexible and comprehensive system for creating more efficient and safer environments for the people they serve. All that is achieved with record time to market," said Yaki Zano, VP, Technologies, Bezeq. "After a detailed selection process, we chose mPrest, a world leader in IIoT software, because of the information and operational technology (IT/OT) integration and analysis capabilities that mPrest's application offers, which really bring the value of the Smart City application to new operational levels. This partnership is integral to our strategy for growing our business by providing intelligent IIoT solutions that operate within advanced telecommunications infrastructure."

The software platform will provide cities with unprecedented insight on how infrastructure and services are performing. Additionally, it will empower them to control and monitor systems across various departments in an integrated way, improving security and response capabilities. All systems integrated by the mPrest application can be expanded and upgraded without calling upon mPrest or other third-party software engineers—mPrest provides all the tools in-house operators need for such adjustments.

"This application is the first step towards smarter cities of the future," said Natan Barak, CEO, mPrest. "With our system-of-systems application, customers will be able to command, control and analyze city or campus assets from a single command center. As the number of IIoT devices increases in cities, so too will need for oversight to ensure harmonious operation of those devices and realization of the many benefits they offer."
