Malaysia and its economy are poised to benefit from a 10-year 5G partnership between Ericsson and Digital Nasional Berhad (DNB) to drive the nationwide deployment of the next-generation wireless cellular technology in Malaysia.
5G’s speed, low-latency and large-data-handling capabilities will digitally transform the nation, while creating a 5G ecosystem that will power innovation in areas such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and automation across a range of enterprise, industry and multi-sector Internet of Things (IoT) use cases.
By utilizing the capabilities of 5G and accelerating the deployment of Malaysia’s nationwide 5G network and ecosystem, DNB will provide access and services to mobile service providers and others licensed by the regulators, to enable a world-class 5G experience and make Industry 4.0 a reality in Malaysia.
Ralph Marshall, Chief Executive Officer, DNB, said: “DNB is committed to delivering the best technology and innovation opportunities for Malaysians, businesses and government to ensure that Malaysia takes its place at the forefront of the global digital economy. We identified Ericsson to offer the best next generation 5G technology and professional services available to suit DNB’s specific and unique requirements.”
