Cisco launches TREC in Saudi Arabia
Cisco, the worldwide leader in networking for the Internet, announced today the launch of TREC in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. TREC is designed to address increasing demand for intelligence in network infrastructure from the tourism, real estate and construction sectors.
"We have launched TREC in KSA as part of Cisco's commitment to developing the real estate, tourism and constructions sectors in the country," said Dr. Badr bin Al Hamoud Al Badr, Cisco's KSA General Manager. "Saudi Arabia is witnessing an unprecedented boom and TREC is an ideal solution to support the industry in overcoming the challenges relating to employee productivity, legacy communications systems, energy costs, and lost revenue streams."
The TREC framework is based upon the convergence of network infrastructure and building systems onto a single Internet Protocol (IP) environment. It harnesses the power of IP to transform building construction and management.
Amr Salem, Manager of Real Estate Vertical at Cisco, said: "For property owners, there is an incremental multiplier effect as more properties are connected together. Networked buildings can be linked together into a connected portfolio. The open standards-based building infrastructure encourages a centralized approach to monitoring, maintenance and control of the building environment, where building control systems across all properties can be controlled from a single place."
He added: "TREC will bring huge financial and operational advantages not only to the construction, real estate and property services industries but also to downstream constituencies – such as hotel operators, multiplexed retail outlets, and corporate tenants – in sectors as diverse as leisure, healthcare, education and retail finance."
Through TREC, Cisco will automatically and securely connect building owners and tenants to innovative amenities, applications and features that allow people to do things, better, faster and cheaper.
"Tenants benefit from differentiated bulk services – such as broadband – with lower costs and higher service levels. Additionally, real savings to tenants include reduced IT resource requirements, cheaper communications costs, faster service delivery, simplified partner management, and greater control over their environment," Salem concluded.
