The Company’s Connected Vehicle Solution, a complete transportation security solution designed particularly with the requirements of the education and transportation sectors in mind, has been widely taken up by establishments in Bahrain since its launch in the middle of 2016. The solution is aimed at equipping vehicles, such as school busses, with cameras, sensors, GPS tracker, sound level detector and object count and furthermore the solution is self-powered through the use of solar panels.

As the innovation driver in Bahrain, Batelco was the first in the Kingdom to launch a series of locally hosted cloud-based services and in addition, Batelco collaborated with industry leaders to offer customers a wider portfolio of Cloud services. All are solidified by Batelco’s widely acclaimed ICT services. To suit the organisations’ diverse needs, Batelco offers enterprises the ability to fully customise the specifications for these services.
