Maxis and Huawei Malaysia have begun scaling up the 4G network to prepare for a seamless transition to 5G.
Maxis selected key areas in Kuala Lumpur to conduct trials with Huawei, with a focus to increase 4G capacity and user experience, enable fast 5G deployment and achieve optimization of network resources – all of which will prepare for 5G deployment once spectrum is made available.
This follows the TechCity partnership which was formalized early this year. This is dedicated to building an excellent 4G and 5G infrastructure to bring the best connectivity experience and digital quality of life for the people and businesses in Malaysia in the future.
Through the programme, Maxis joins global leading operators in having closer R&D collaboration and access to the latest development of 5G applications. Huawei’s TechCity had already launched in leading cities such as London, Seoul and Tokyo.
Michael Yuan, Huawei CEO of Malaysia, said: “Malaysia has been making tremendous headway with its forward ICT policies towards building a digital economy, and TechCity is fundamental to this journey to cultivate a robust ecosystem to deliver exceptional user experience and network efficiency.
“We are pleased to be working with Maxis on the TechCity initiative to successfully create 5G solutions that can be replicated in global markets.”Click below to share this article
