Anacle Wows Leaders at ASEAN Summit
Singapore, 22 November 2018－Anacle Systems Limited (“Anacle”) was one of the privileged companies to be showcased at the recent 33rd ASEAN Summit and Related Summits. The Summit was chaired by Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and attended by leaders from 20 countries including the United States, China, Russia, and Japan. One of the main themes of discussion at the summit was the digital transformation of the region and the development of smart cities.
A key outcome of the Summit was the adoption of the ASEAN Smart Cities Network (“ASCN”). ASCN is an initiative launched during Singapore’s chairmanship of the regional bloc. ASCN was established with the aim of achieving smart and sustainable urban development across 26 ASCN pilot cities. Support for smart cities investment and innovation was further boosted by the announcement of the “U.S.-ASEAN Smart Cities Partnership” by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on the sidelines of the ASEAN Summit.
Underscoring the Smart Cities theme of the Summit, Anacle was one of the selected few invited to showcase its smart city software, Simplicity® and hyper smart meter, the Tesseract®. Summit delegates were able to experience and interact with the next-generation smart city capabilities of Anacle’s solutions.
“The widespread support of the ASCN framework, including funding, reflects the significance and commitment the governments are placing on digital transformation. Innovative, cost-effective solutions that are scalable will be critical at this stage of development. This presents a plethora of opportunities for companies like Anacle to bring our smart cities expertise and knowledge across the region”, said Alex Lau, CEO of Anacle.
The Tesseract®, in particular, was a big draw at the event. The Tesseract® represents Anacle’s bold vision of a smarter and more energy efficient future. The Tesseract® is an all-in-one energy device that operates as an energy meter, a power quality analyzer or an intelligent demand-response system that allows customers to control their energy use. The Tesseract® is the world’s first smart meter equipped with Android or Linux, offering access to an expanding ecosystem of smart energy applications. Tesseract® works with established 3G/4G Internet of Things (IoT) networks including LTE, Narrowband IoT, SigFox and LoRaWAN. Coupled with its remote upgrade capabilities, the Tesseract® is a truly future proof device.
In Singapore, the Housing & Development Board is organizing a utilities management challenge to educate HDB residents on smart home living and utilities conservation. Households that achieve the targeted reduction in household energy and/or water consumption will receive incentives. The Tesseract® is planned for deployment to help drive these energy efficiency targets.
“Residents of Teck Ghee precinct will soon have the chance to use this nifty device in their homes. They will have the ability to track their energy and water consumption in real time, identify periods of peak usage, and which appliances are causing this. They will also be able to experience a smart home with the ability to remotely turn on and off common household appliances such as their aircon and washing machine. All of this will help residents intelligently identify how they can conserve energy and water”, said Satin Sandhu, Vice President of Regional Business Development, Anacle Systems.
