Etisalat, Honeywell enhance cooperation on Internet of Things provision

Etisalat and Honeywell sign fresh IoT agreement: Our friends at Etisalat Misr have signed an MoU with US tech giant Honeywell to provide Etisalat customers with internet of things (IoT) services as part of their ongoing work to co-build a cloud-based IoT platform, Al Mal reports. The two have been working together to build a network of smart cities and buildings through their IoT platform, which seeks to provide high-tech services in sectors including manufacturing, healthcare, hospitality, education, real estate, and transport. In early 2020, the two companies signed a contract to develop a smart city management system for the new administrative capital.

Other things we’re keeping an eye on this morning:

  • The Transport Ministry plans to sign an MoU by June with Abu Dhabi Ports to set up a cargo route across the Nile — passing through Minya, Alexandria and Damietta — to transport products from Canal Sugar’s Minya sugar factory.
  • Fortress Egypt: Egypt is purchasing a mobile border surveillance system from US-based Advanced Technologies Systems in a USD 93.8 mn contract announced by the US Department of Defense last week. Work is expected to be completed by February 2027.
