A smart city has been created in Kazakhstan, called Aqkol, 100 kilometres from Nur-Sultan. Step by step, it is currently being transformed into a smart city.
Aqkol has 14 000 inhabitants. The first space vehicle complex in Kazakhstan was commissioned here in 2005. According to Alimzhan Yesetov, Director General of Tengri Lab, the digitalisation of the city started last spring.
All the city's subsystems send data to the single secure platform that powers the smart city. All data is displayed on the video wall installed at the Aqkol Situation Centre.
