Saudi Arabia’s future city NEOM’s already existing ICT structure, is getting an extra digital upgrade. TONOMUS, its cognitive tech firm, opened the first digital communications facility to enhance the data center, 5G, satellite, and fiber cable network connectivity growth in NEOM’s Oxagon.

Called Telecommunications Center, the new facility will enable the provision of secure private cloud services in NEOM without interruption, cutting operating costs. 

“It will also enable the predictive intelligence and cognitive solutions to create the sustainable, livable and equitable future that we aim to make possible in NEOM and beyond,” said Joseph Bradley, CEO of TONOMUS.

The center will power a software-driven network and secure private cloud that is projected to service up to 60 locations, some 1,800 structures, approximately 300,000 construction staff needed at NEOM by 2025, and 200 million IoT devices by 2030. 

“The launch of the Telecommunications Center is another important milestone in the development of NEOM. This center will play a part in realizing our vision for a smart, cutting-edge region that prioritizes livability, where infrastructure and services are designed to give people time back to live their lives to the fullest. It will raise competitiveness in the global ICT industry and support businesses and individuals who will call NEOM home,” says Nadhmi Al-Nasr, Chief Executive Officer of NEOM.
