Anilarasu a/l Amaranazan, Chief Operating Officer, Aspen Group. Also present at the event were YB Jagdeep Singh Deo, Penang State Exco for Housing, Local Government, and Urban and Country Planning and Dato’ Seri Nazir Ariff, Group Executive Director of Aspen Group.
Commenting on the collaboration, Wan Ahmad Kamal said, “This collaboration does not only reflect our support towards the development of Aspen Vervea townships, it is also a testament to our commitment to introduce Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Services for the commercial residences of Penang. This collaboration is also aimed at creating more value and delivering an enhanced experience to the township residents. It is our aspiration to be the strategic digital enabler for business verticals, including property developers, in realising the full potential of their digital opportunities. At TM ONE, we strive to offer relevant solutions that will enable Aspen Vision City to establish safe and sustainable smart townships by delivering digital capabilities through share of moments, true to TM’s vision of “Life Made Easier”.”
“In this digital era, the adoption of smart services and converged communications services will pave the way for the development of smart cities. We aim to help organisations and local councils in solving the diverse challenges in mobility and transportation, safety and security, environmental and social sustainability and public services which can be achieved through TM ONE’s smart solutions - supported by our core capabilities and expertise in providing Data Centre, Cloud and Security services,” he added.
Meanwhile, Dato’ Seri Nazir Ariff stated that, “Both residents and business owners at Aspen Vision City will enjoy the distinction of having a wide array of infrastructure, amenities as well as smart facilities and services at their disposal. Owners of residential units, for instance, will enjoy greater convenience and more control over their homes through various life-enhancing technologies such as IoT, Smart Home Systems and many more.”
“Fibre optic cabling has become a vital infrastructure in our developments nowadays. Today’s commercial developments must provide efficient and cost-effective environments for information-age-based workers. This can be done through optimisation of its infrastructure, systems, services and management, as well as the connections between systems. Productivity is the driving force as we are talking about real-time and instant integration and engagement with our customers,” Dato’ Seri Nazir Ariff added.
Set to be developed over multiple phases, Aspen Vision City comprises the highly-anticipated, first and only IKEA store and regional shopping centre in the Northern Region, a dynamic mix of condominiums, designer bungalows, shop offices, serviced suites, a hotel, an office tower, a financial centre, advanced healthcare facilities and an international school, all supported by a diverse array of top notch facilities and amenities. Upon completion, Aspen Vision City is poised to emerge as a leading smart city that will redefine the concept of smart living and serve as a benchmark for other aspiring cities in the North.
With its 441 units of shop offices, Vervea is located at the forefront of Aspen Vision City, its strategic location and comprehensive network infrastructure providing businesses and entrepreneurs a catchment of untapped potential. The development also incorporates a world-class trade and exhibition centre. Upon completion, large scale concerts, auto shows, trade fairs, and consumer exhibitions are expected to become regular events on the Northern Region’s calendar.
Billed as the most connected, integrated and smartest development in Penang, Vervea offers investors, tenants and entrepreneurs the advantage of the move-in, plug-in and log-in ready-connected infrastructure that Aspen Group provides.
“At Aspen Group, we embrace innovation, technology and cross industry innovation because we know where opportunity lies. We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. When the world changes as rapidly as it does today, one of the greatest challenges we all face in business is staying relevant to our target market. In today’s market place, customers have far more distractions, choices and opportunities to make decision. Proactive innovation is one of the best ways to stay competitive in an evolving marketplace and we always believe that when we invest in proper technology, the rewards are manifold,” Dato Seri Nazir further added.
Both TM and Aspen Vision City are committed to leveraging on their core competencies and strengths in providing quality commercial buildings with smart systems. Such collaboration is significant in transforming the trends of local commercial development with the added premise of a digital lifestyle.
