As part of the smart city agreement, Orange Business will create a blueprint for the ICT infrastructure of the tower, from the plan and design, to the build and run phases.
“The implementation of the smart city components is considered as an essential step for delivering an environmentally friendly self-sustainable project,” said Mounib Hammoud, CEO of Jeddah Economic City.
