Mr. Thanasorn Jaidee, President of True Digital Park said, "True Digital Park has brought together the most cutting-edge and advanced technology, including Augmented Analytics and Big Data Analytics, AI, IoT and 5G testbed, as well as various digital services to drive True Digital Park into becoming Thailand's first digital innovation hub, and the largest in Southeast Asia where technological ecosystem is rapidly growing. The infrastructure that supports all types of communications would be in place as we partner with the world's leading technological companies to install advanced systems and devices to enhance the work process and lifestyle at the facilities. Smart solutions will be implemented to ensure that everyone will receive maximized benefits from intelligent systems that are convenient, energy-saving and eco-friendly at True Digital Park.

True Digital Park, in collaboration with four leading world-class IT partners, has introduced a range of hi-tech innovations featured in the project, as follows:

  • Cisco: Cisco will incorporate Heat Map that collects data on space utilization within True Digital Park for further analysis, management and effective communication with the users; and Smart Lighting that operates power control at the office and meeting rooms to ensure Smart Office and Smart Building.
  • Microsoft: To enhance the security standards at True Digital Park, Microsoft would introduce an AI-driven face detection and facial recognition system to automatically monitor incoming and outgoing foot traffic instead of relying traditional card-based alternatives. This new system is powered by Cognitive Services on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.
  • Epson: Epson's innovative "Laser Projector" delivers better resolution and longer service life than those of conventional projectors. Epson will also provide interactive projectors at board rooms and high-contrast projectors at large conference rooms. All projectors support wireless connection to ensure efficient and engaging meetings.
