New police station to serve i-City

TENANTS and visitors to Malaysia’s premier digital city in Section 7, Shah Alam, will be conducting their business with an added sense of security.

The Shah Alam police is planning a new police station at the western boundary of i-City, which will enable them to respond to calls within a minute and offer 24-hour patrol.

Strategic alliance: Selangor Police Chief Deputy Commissioner of Police Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar (front row, third from left) and IBerhad deputy executive chairman Datuk Lim Kim Hong (in suit).

Other safety services, such as ambulance and fire brigade, will respond within 15 minutes of any call from i-City.

In the interim, the security measures planned by the police include linking the current CCTV surveillance in i-City to the Shah Alam police station.

Apart from having patrols from i-City, the police also plans to train i-City in-house security staff.

In today’s competitive environ-ment, a safe and secure zone is an additional competitive edge for i-City, and the strategic alliance with the Polis DiRaja Malaysia (PDRM) is an important feature in ensuring i-City can compete to attract international investors to Malaysia.

The digital city is designed to be managed as one large complex with a controlled tenant mix.

There is CCTV surveillance as well as patrolling guards.

The Concierge in i-City serves both as a meeting point and a one-stop centre.

From a master planning perspective, i-City is bordered on three sides by either a river or housing.

Only the western border is open, but there is a 30.5m-wide (100ft-wide) buffer between this boundary and the main MBSA road.

The site is accessed by a main boulevard with only two entry points, so although it is not a gated community, the development easy security controls.

The project caters for two communities — the knowledge workers and the tourists.

In line with this, there are two major components in the development, i.e. the managed offices and the tourism components.

The office component comprises the MSC cybercentre offices, office towers, data centres and the related infrastructure, while the tourism component comprises the shopping mall, citywalk and media hub.

However, both the knowledge workers and tourists will have many similar requirements.

First, there is a need for i-City to operate round the clock seven days a week as many of the operations have international linkages.

Furthermore, as a tourism destination, i-City has to operate all year round and till late into the night.

Secondly, both the offices and tourism components cater for the international community, for which cosmopolitan outlets and other entertainment facilities like cinemas are integral to their lifestyle.

Then, there is the atmosphere of the place.

Thus within i-City, both the workforce and visitors would want a safe and comfortable environment, both in terms of personal safety and the security of their assets.

And, even more importantly, for i-City Data Centre Park, the operations not only require restricted access but have also to be secured against info-security risks.

The development’s infrastructure is based on the Cisco Connected Real Estate solutions. Cisco is the leading network services in the world from both the technology and data security perspectives.
