With this announcement, Tamdeen Square features Kuwait’s first 5G-connected smart residential towers.
The announcement came during Zain’s participation as a Strategic Sponsor in the Kuwait Tech Expo 2020 at the International Fairground in Mishref. The signing ceremony witnessed the presence of Zain Kuwait CEO Eaman Al-Roudhan, Tamdeen Real Estate Company CEO Mohammed Abdulhamid Al-Marzouq, Zain Kuwait’s Chief Enterprise Business Officer Hamad Al-Marzouq, Zain Kuwait’s Chief Corporate Communications and Relations Officer Waleed Al-Khashti, as well as the executive management teams from both companies.
As part of this MoU, Zain will offer a number of the latest and most advanced smart services and solutions in networking and home security to power the three residential towers in the Tamdeen Square real estate project at Sabah Al Salem area. The solutions will be fully powered by the revolutionary fifth generation wireless technology (5G), including superfast 5G Internet coverage, integrated VSaaS surveillance platform for video recording, storage, remote viewing, and management alerts, as well as a wide range of cybersecurity solutions.
Zain will also offer many of its Zain LIFE smart home services and solutions to power the residential apartments in the three towers, including indoor surveillance cameras, smart doorbells, motion sensors, smart smoke detectors, and much more.
Tamdeen Square is considered one of Kuwait’s leading and largest real estate projects for residence, shopping, and hospitality. The project comprises three impressive 40-story high-rise residential towers, one of the highest residential towers in Kuwait, that are strategically located in Sabah Al-Salem with access to two of Kuwait’s main highways – the Fahaheel Expressway and the Sixth Ring Road Expressway. The project features 256 sea view residential apartments, a shopping center with 74 retail stores, as well as two buildings with hotel apartments and a business hotel, all over 37,000 square meters.
During the signing ceremony, Zain Kuwait CEO Eaman Al-Roudhan said: “Today we are pleased to sign an MoU with our partners at Tamdeen Real Estate Company to power Kuwait’s first 5G-connected smart residential towers. This partnership is a clear reflection of Zain’s leading role as a main partner in creating the future of smart life in Kuwait, where we offer the latest and most advanced tech solutions as per the highest international standards to the local business community”.
Al-Roudhan added: “In the past few years, we have put forth many strategic goals through which we demonstrate our utmost commitment in expanding in smart life and digital transformation applications in the country, with the aim of achieving the goals of Kuwait’s National Development Plan (New Kuwait 2035) that stems from His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s conceptualized vision of a New Kuwait by 2035. With today’s partnership, we take a new step forward into achieving these goals”.
Al-Roudhan explained: “To affirm its leadership, Zain was the first telecom operator to commercially launch fifth generation wireless technology (5G) last year in the GCC region via the Kuwaiti market with nationwide coverage of all areas. As the telecom sector is currently directing towards digital transformation with significant pace, it was evident that mobile telecom networks were not capable of meeting the future needs of the business sector with what was available back then. For that, Zain’s early commercial launch of 5G services came to keep up with the fast-paced and ever-evolving lifestyle patterns of the community on all levels”.
Al-Roudhan continued: “After we succeeded in designing an integrated network for 5G services built on a world-class infrastructure, we are proud to announce that 5G technology will be the cornerstone for powering all the solutions and services we will be offering to Tamdeen Square’s three residential towers. This will make them the first 5G-connected smart residential towers in Kuwait, and we are excited to see the innovative services this revolutionary technology will allow on our network, the biggest and most advanced in the country”.
During the signing ceremony, Tamdeen Real Estate Company CEO Mohammed Abdulhamid Al-Marzouq said: “We are delighted to sign this MoU with Zain to power the residential towers of our unique project, Tamdeen Square, with the latest innovative solutions, especially 5G technologies, to make them the first smart residential towers of their kind in Kuwait. The project features a cutting-edge blend of innovation, smart design and the highest quality standards, as well as high-end services and facilities, making it a premiere address for a modern lifestyle”.
Al-Marzouq added: “We selected Zain to power Tamdeen Square with the latest communications and home security solutions due to the fact that it is the leading provider of the most advanced digital services in Kuwait. We were keen on offering our customers a comprehensive package for a full residence, shopping and hospitality experience, powered by the latest technologies that meet the highest international standards. Through this project, we aim at redefining residential real estate projects in a unique and unprecedented way, while offering the real estate sector an added and refreshed value”.
Zain recently announced its strategic sponsorship of Kuwait Tech Expo 2020, considered Kuwait’s biggest event for technology and telecommunications services. The event aimed at offering effective solutions to the country’s various bodies with the aim of serving the community’s needs.
Zain’s support to the event came to affirm its commitment in being present at the various activities and programs that contribute to pushing the national economy wheel and achieve the country’s developmental goals, especially those centered around technology and telecommunications. As the world goes through comprehensive digital transformation, Zain expressed its commitment and readiness to be a main contributing partner of Kuwait’s digital transformation journey.
Through its dedicated booth at the Kuwait Tech Expo 2020, Zain showcased its capabilities as an active partner in empowering a smart life, a safe community, and an efficient business sector to achieve the goals of the Kuwait National Development Plan (New Kuwait 2035), which is based on five expected outcomes and seven key pillars. Zain considers itself a main partner in the achievement of this plan.
Zain strongly believes in the crucial role played by private sector organizations in supporting social and economic sustainability projects, as well as further pushing the entrepreneurial community’s growth in the country. Springing from its growing commitment towards practicing its social responsibility, the company is committed to printing a positive print through all its activities.
