Con­tin­u­ous growth and evo­lu­tion

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - World Cities Day -

WORLD Ci­ties Day pro­motes the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity’s in­ter­est in global ur­ban­i­sa­tion by ac­cel­er­at­ing co­op­er­a­tion among coun­tries to meet op­por­tu­ni­ties; ad­dress­ing chal­lenges in ur­ban­i­sa­tion and con­tri­bu­tions to sus­tain­able ur­ban de­vel­op­ments around the world.

Be­ing the en­trusted City Builder of Cy­ber­jaya, Se­tia Haru­man to­gether with the key stake­hold­ers of Cy­ber­jaya, have el­e­vated this hub to the next level and has put in place a vi­sion and bench­mark to trans­form Cy­ber­jaya into a tech­nol­ogy-driven live­able city.

This is to en­sure its con­tin­ued growth and evo­lu­tion in be­com­ing one of the most vi­brant ci­ties in the Asean re­gion for peo­ple to Work, Live, Study and Play.

Cy­ber­jaya, Malaysia’s Cap­i­tal of Cre­ation is a fast-mov­ing global tech-hub, built on the pil­lars of smart city and liv­ing lab, that em­pow­ers the com­mu­nity via the pro­vi­sion of a com­plete ecosys­tem.

Bear­ing the re­spon­si­bil­ity of build­ing Cy­ber­jaya into a live­able Smart City that will at­tract new in­vestors and the pub­lic at large, in­no­va­tive strate­gies and in­vest­ments are needed to pro­mote a sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment that is not only pro­gres­sive and mod­ern, but also con­scious of the en­vi­ron­ment.

With 48% of land ded­i­cated to green space and ameni­ties, in­clud­ing 400 acres of nat­u­ral wet­land lakes, sus­tain­abil­ity is the key­word for Se­tia Haru­man.

This will en­sure the pro­mo­tion of green tech­nol­ogy ini­tia­tives.

The mas­ter plan in­cludes go­ing green and re­duc­ing the over­all en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact.

One di­rect re­sult of this is seen in bird mi­gra­tion, which only hap­pens here due to the plant­ing of cer­tain fruit trees.

Ad­di­tion­ally, most of­fice build­ings in Cy­ber­jaya are equipped with district-cool­ing sys­tem (DCS) for en­ergy-ef­fi­ciency.

There are also a to­tal of 15 elec­tric ve­hi­cle charg­ing sta­tions to date, the largest num­ber in one de­vel­op­ment.

Fur­ther­more, bike-shar­ing con­cept had re­cently been in­tro­duced and gain­ing pos­i­tive trac­tion from the com­mu­nity.

When it comes to com­mu­ni­ca­tion, Se­tia Haru­man via its Se­tia Haru­man Tech­nol­ogy sub­sidiary, to­gether with Cy­berview Sdn Bhd and the state gov­ern­ment, have cre­ated a bor­der­less com­mu­ni­ca­tions com­mu­nity by en­abling WiFi in all pop­u­lated ar­eas within the city.

Safety within Cy­ber­jaya is en­sured with the close mon­i­tor­ing of all pop­u­lated and res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment ar­eas via CCTV that is con­nected to the sta­teof-the-art Cy­ber­jaya po­lice sta­tion.

In line with this year’s theme of ‘In­no­va­tive Gover­nance; Open Ci­ties’ that high­lights the im­por­tance of ur­ban­i­sa­tion as a source of global de­vel­op­ment and so­cial in­clu­sion, Se­tia Haru­man’s vi­sion is to be the builder of ci­ties that shapes the fu­ture of com­mu­ni­ties.

Hav­ing in­vested over RM2.8bil to build the in­fra­struc­ture in en­abling a quick ‘plug-and-play’ im­ple­men­ta­tion, Cy­ber­jaya is one of the few ur­ban town­ships with world-class in­fra­struc­ture that is 85% com­plete.

For fu­ture de­vel­op­ments, there are still over 600 acres of free­hold land avail­able to sup­port its growth.

Cy­ber­jaya has also re­ceived strong sup­port from com­pa­nies and start-ups from ma­jor stake­hold­ers such as MDEC, Cy­berview and MaGIC.

Draw­ing from the rel­e­vant stake­hold­ers, sup­port­ers and in­cen­tive driv­ers en­riches and en­hances the busi­ness ecosys­tem of Cy­ber­jaya.

When it comes to tal­ent, Cy­ber­jaya has an ex­ten­sive pool of highly skilled tal­ent that draws from five uni­ver­si­ties and four col­leges within the lo­cal­ity as well as the ex­pe­ri­enced pro­fes­sion­als and skilled work­ers from over 40 multi­na­tional com­pa­nies and over 400 MSC sta­tus com­pa­nies.

In the face of new changes and trends, Se­tia Haru­man is open to ex­plor­ing new op­por­tu­ni­ties and in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy.

In­no­va­tion-driven strate­gies and in­vest­ments are needed to move to­wards a much more sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment in fu­ture.

To date, Se­tia Haru­man has in­cor­po­rated re­li­able and vi­able in­fra­struc­tures to ease im­ple­men­ta­tion of new tech­nolo­gies and ap­pli­ca­tions, es­pe­cially in util­is­ing In­ter­net of Things (IoT) plat­forms — the 250km dark fi­bre, which op­er­ates on an open net­work ac­cess com­ple­ments the re­quire­ment of in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies cur­rently op­er­at­ing in Cy­ber­jaya.

Also, with the im­ple­men­ta­tion of 22 units of 4G LTE cel­lu­lar tow­ers, mo­bil­ity cov­er­age within Cy­ber­jaya is en­hanced and in­ci­dences of dropped-call rate (DCR) have been elim­i­nated.

A long-range wire­less tech­nol­ogy, the LoRa net­work sys­tem is one of the first im­ple­men­ta­tions of its kind in the Asean re­gion, an ini­tia­tive via Cy­berview Sdn Bhd and Atilze.

The net­work con­nects sen­sors and ap­pli­ca­tions for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of IoT projects.

Se­tia Haru­man Tech­nol­ogy has also em­barked on tech-driven and IoT projects.

It pro­vides ser­vices that in­clude su­per-fast speed and af­ford­able broad­band of 1Gbps to both com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial ar­eas.

One ma­jor chal­lenge en­coun­tered is in con­vinc­ing peo­ple to live in Cy­ber­jaya, which is only just 30 min­utes away from Klang Val­ley and Greater KL.

To en­cour­age po­ten­tial com­mu­nity mem­bers, a pos­i­tive en­vi­ron­ment has been cre­ated to pro­vide com­fort­able liv­ing with con­ve­niences by com­bin­ing in­te­gra­tion and co­or­di­na­tion with part­ners and in­vestors to tackle is­sues.

The is­sues in­clude trans­porta­tion and trans­porta­tion in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment, em­ploy­ment, af­ford­able res­i­den­tial prop­er­ties, en­er­gysav­ing and green tech­nol­ogy ini­tia­tives as well as the es­tab­lish­ment of ed­u­ca­tion and health­care ameni­ties.

With all th­ese in place,

Se­tia Haru­man is set to­wards achiev­ing its vi­sion and goals to el­e­vate Cy­ber­jaya into a Smart Live­able City where peo­ple Work, Live, Study and Play.
