Commtel enters into an enterprise agreement for its AI and Analytics Solution with Quality International

20 October 2021, GITEX Global, Dubai, UAE: Commtel, a global leader in engineering and technology solutions, has entered into an enterprise agreement with Quality International (QI), UAE, a leading (process) equipment manufacturer and turnkey provider of total integrated solution to the Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) sectors. As part of the multi-year agreement, Commtel will be transforming QI’s operations through its Artificially Intelligent software solution, CN-SHIELD. 

The agreement signed between Commtel and QI entails Commtel to digitally transform all aspect of QI’s operations, allowing the company to control operations remotely across all its facilities and, most importantly, to predict conditions and failures, ensuring the safety and security of QI’s human assets, equipment, and the physical estate. CN-SHIELD has been built on nybl’s AI platform.

Mr. Shriprakash R. Pandey, CMD, Commtel Networks said, “The systems at a Critical National Infrastructure and companies servicing the CNI sectors presently is a combination of legacy technologies and new digital solutions giving rise to the challenge of getting data AI-ready expensive and time-consuming. The industry’s collective digital transformation is widening the surface for threat actors to attack. The risk profile of a CNI and its ecosystem has broadened with the increasing use of digital, connected, smart IoT (IIoT). CN-SHIELD leverages nybl’s advanced ML technology combined with the deep CNI domain expertise of Commtel, to ensure that there isn’t a trade-off between security and digitalization. QI using CN-SHIELD reflects the interconnections and interdependencies inherent in a CNI ecosystem. It is a partnership for a collective defense”.

Quality International has multiple facilities throughout the UAE, totalling over 400,000square metres of mixed-use space and employing over 1,300 people. “Commtel will be deploying the AI-powered CN-SHIELD to modernize, standardize and automate the QI workplace, allowing QI to monitor and respond effectively to potential risks and establish a modernized and secured digital workplace. We wanted a partner to not only enhance our digital transformation journey but who could eliminate the need to have significant resources to implement sophisticated AI programs to stay secure and advance digital capabilities on our own,” said Mr. Aneesh P. V., Director, Quality International.

Commtel launches CN-SHIELD, its state-of-the-art AI solution offering 360-degree protection for Critical National Infrastructure

19 October, Mumbai: Commtel, a global leader in engineering and technology solutions, launched its new integrated platform that leverages big data analytics to provide actionable intelligence for robust end-to-end protection to any Critical National Infrastructure (CNI). Commtel made this announcement at the ongoing GITEX 2021, Global Event in Dubai, UAE.

CN-Shield is an artificial intelligence software solution that integrates all assets, monitors, assesses the data, and implements faster and cohesive 360-degree protection. It aims at bridging the gap in security in the era of cyber-physical systems. CN-SHIELD is implemented on Nybl’s AI platform.  It is an engineered system deployment that is customised, and purpose built for a specific customer site. Using its unique C6Ai architecture it provides the customer with power to collect data from myriad devices and systems on a single data processing platform.

“Today, when we are witnessing an increasing convergence between the digital and physical worlds, it is crucial for any CNI to detect physical manifestations of cyber events as well physical events that may impact the security and safety of their assets. CN-SHIELD will enable a CNI to achieve that objective. This offering demonstrates our capabilities in building software solutions based upon our accumulated domain knowledge”, says Mr. Shriprakash R. Pandey, CMD, Commtel Networks.

CN-SHIELD is the first in a new line of AI-based solutions from Commtel for protecting the CNI and its ecosystem. The solution uses advanced ML/AI technology for timely delivery and action of threat intelligence, allowing CNI to optimize and secure its mission-critical assets and communications networks amidst the complexity of rapidly digitalizing operating environments. CN-SHIELD will help CNI stay secure, enable them to tap into the power of their organizational data, manage their operations and security fundamentals.

Shriprakash further states, “This significant development is a natural progression for Commtel, as over two decades, we have catered predominantly to customers in the CNI sectors. It is one more step in furthering our vision to help build a smarter, faster, and safer world.”

CN-SHIELD is a perfect example of the incredible achievements possible at the intersection of subject matter expertise and expertise in Artificial Intelligence. Nybl is on a mission to democratize AI by eliminating the technical barriers of developing and deploying AI applications and our partnership with Commtel and CN-SHIELD, built on Nybl, is a testament to the extraordinary results when two experts in their respective domains collaborate.” added Mr. Noor Alnahhas, CEO, nybl.
