Etisalat Digital, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi-based leading telecom group Etisalat will collaborate with the UAE’s largest bank First Abu Dhabi (FAB) to deploy a cloud-based IoT Smart Building solution that will enable FAB to access and operate its assets across the region ‘anytime’ and ‘anywhere’.

With the implementation of Etisalat Digital’s smart solution, the bank will now be able to manage its own buildings and branches which require extensive facilities management, maintenance and operations.

The association and the deployment of a portfolio-wide IoT smart-building management system is a first for any bank in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

“By utilizing our cloud-based IoT Smart Building Platform, all assets and systems within FAB’s buildings will be integrated and centralized into a single platform, providing ‘anytime anywhere’ access and ease of operations across its entire portfolio.”

Etisalat Digital’s Urban Intelligence solutions and IoT platform facilitate advanced and predictive analytics, which in turn provides unique insights into the operations of the building and allows a truly smart facilities portfolio.

Vikas Anand, Executive Vice President and Head of Group Operations, First Abu Dhabi Bank, said, “We are honored to collaborate with Etisalat, one of the world’s leading telecom groups – and, like us, immensely proud of its Abu Dhabi roots – to implement its Urban Intelligence solutions. We look forward to a strong and successful relationship in this regard.”
