Laila Abdullah Khasib Al Hadhrami (Senior Executive Digital Transformation) will report about the big stimulus for smart services that comes from the acceleration of the fiber-based national fixed broadband infrastructure.
By 2020, over 90% of the Governorate of Muscat- which is equivalent to 350,000 premises- were already covered by the fiber optic network. By the end of 2030, it is expected that most of the surrounding urban areas outside of Muscat will also be covered by the fiber optic network.
She will also address the Muscat Smart City project. The nation’s extreme climate, high standard of living and the need for thorough interconnection between its urban transport systems comprise the basic concepts that drive the project in Muscat.
Oman installed a system that gives an overview of an entire location and centralizes all data for thorough evaluation, enabling traffic to be managed effectively along with other aspects of life in such a smart city. Government officials have highly accurate data to hand as to the situations on roads, if sites are experiencing congestion, the time it takes to travel from one end of the city to the other and where any untapped potential exists to facilitate transit.
