Integrated Emergency Communications System for Ho Chi Minh City; Smart City Intelligent Operations Center for Ho Chi Minh City.
In 2018, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam engaged Winbourne Consulting to plan an integrated emergency communications system for the city. We completed the project in 2019, after which the city allocated nearly $110M USD to implement the solution. The Covid-19 pandemic has delayed the implementation phase of the project.
Ho Chi Minh City is a leader in Southeast Asia’s transformation to Smart City technology and operations. In 2020, Ho Chi Minh City awarded our firm with a project to provide technical assistance to plan the Intelligent Operations Center or IOC. The IOC is the operations center for the city’s data collection, management, and implementation of numerous Smart City initiatives across the city government. This project is ongoing.
The United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) and Winbourne Consulting, LLC funded both of these projects with Ho Chi Minh City. The city government has allocated significant resources to support both projects is funds for implementation.
