Saldanha Bay Municipality Smart City View:

Saldanha Bay Municipality strives to be innovative and at the forefront of technology.  To this effect, it has embraced the challenge to prepare the municipal area for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) with an inclusive approach, enabling citizens to engage in a digital transformation.

Saldanha Bay Municipality is proud to announce that the Baobab open-access network (OAN) fibre project, a multi-centric utility focus, is delivering on two important Smart City building blocks.

The first building block, being the installation of a singular master open access network, is a digital highway unlocking a wide variety of approved Internet Service Providers (ISPs). Secondly enabling all Saldanha Bay Municipal residents and businesses the freedom of choice to contract with and make use of the value-added services on offer (data, content, bundle services, and municipal utility management).

Saldanha Digital Citizen Application (App):

On Friday, 1 July 2022, the Saldanha Bay Municipality delivered on the second building block by activating the Saldanha Bay Municipality Digital Citizen App that is integrated with the open access network to deliver its utility services digitally to prospective users.  The Digital Citizen App will connect citizens, businesses and the municipality with one another to create a smarter, more efficient working community.

The Digital Citizen App, conceptualised by Amoeba TSC and aligned to function effortlessly with municipal systems, forms part of the Baobab fibre project, which is focused on connecting every single household in the municipal area.
