PCCW Solutions, the IT services flagship of PCCW Limited, has landed a $17.6 million contract to help the Hong Kong government’s Transport Department modernize its existing transport information system (TIS).
PCCW Solutions implemented the first TIS a decade ago. Under the new contract, the company will design, implement and maintain the advanced TIS, synchronizing with the government’s smart city initiative.
The new TIS will make use of the latest information technology to process both textual and spatial data integrated with Geographic Information System for managing traffic flow. The intelligent transport system will allow the general public access to traffic and transport information in real-time through government portals. The system will also enable real-time traffic condition predictions to improve mobility in Hong Kong.
“We are honored to be the digital transformation partner of the Transport Department to create an efficient and effective solution that provides more informed choices to the road users with access to real-time information and enhance the utilization of existing transport infrastructure,” said Ramez Younan, Managing Director of PCCW Solutions. “It is part of our continuous focus on making Hong Kong a leading smart city.”
