The Myanmar International Convention Centre is a newly completed 60,000 square meter convention and exhibition centre that recently held the ASEAN Summit 2014, which Myanmar hosted for the first time.
NEC Asia Pacific developed a comprehensive ICT infrastructure for the convention centre, consisting of network and security infrastructure, integrated voice, data and video services, and a master clock system for the Myanmar government. NEC's sophisticated integrated security and safety system consists of access control system solutions utilising contactless smartcard technology, as well as surveillance systems consisting of intelligent video camera solutions.

NEC will provide comprehensive maintenance and support for these critical services, including helpdesk and event support.
Training for using the systems will be provided to Nay Pyi Taw City Development Council staff and the local team in charge of maintenance in both English and the local Myanmar language.
