The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) was founded with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration Act of 1985 and is responsible for the management of the city of Bangkok. As the city local authority BMA is responsible for the well-being of Bangkok's residents. BMA is comprised of two main bodies: the Governor and the Bangkok Metropolitan Council.

We considered many technology and device brands to find a partner able to meet our requirements. We found that ALE is one of the leading manufacturer, that they are continuously improving, and that they fulfill their roles perfectly to support the needs of Bangkok's people, both now and in the future.

  • To meet these requirements, and implement BMA's 20-year strategic plan for the city, the administration needed a new network infrastructure backbone.
  • In addition, the solution needed to support the roll-out of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and any other technology to improve Bangkok’s citizen services over the next two years.
