Celcom mobile users will be able enjoy speeds of up to 480Mbps (megabits per second) in August when its “Lightning Fast LTE” network goes live.

The Lightning Fast LTE network is based on LTE Advanced Pro which is an industry standard that’s between LTE-A (LTE Advanced) and the next-gen 5G.

According to Celcom Axiata Bhd deputy CEO Azwan Khan Osman Khan, the initial rollout will start in the Klang Valley before it’s expanded to the rest of the country.

“Speed is important but so is consistency,” said Azwan Khan. “The Lightning Fast LTE transmission speeds of up to and beyond 400Mbps will enable seamless experience for HD, 2K, and 4K multimedia without compromising on quality,” he said.

For instance, the current network, which has a max speed of 300Mbps, can only handle 10 users streaming 4K videos simultaneously but the new network will be able to support up to 20 users.

To be able to enjoy the higher speed, users will need to upgrade their mobile devices to the latest models such as the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ or Huawei P10 which support 4x4 MIMO (multiple-input and multiple-output) antenna technology.

According to Azwan Khan, the company will be spending RM1.5bil in capital expenditure on the network upgrade.

Celcom’s 4G network blankets 268 major cities and towns nationwide, with a population coverage of 76%. It targets to hit 85% coverage by year-end.


It said that it will start testing 5G as early as May and has partnered with network equipment giants Ericsson and Huawei.

Axiata taps Thaicom to fuel XL's market expansion
By FRANCIS DASS - May 2, 2017 @ 1:16pm



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Axiata Group Bhd has signed a deal with Thaicom Public Company Limited (Thaicom) for a four-year multi-transponder contract for leased capacity and teleport services in Indonesia.

The deal, signed by Axiata Group's subsidiary Axiata Business Services Sdn Bhd (Axiata Business Services) and Thaicom's unit IPSTAR International Pte Limited (IPSTAR), sees the former purchasing the remaining capacity on IPSTAR over Indonesia to deliver Axiata’s operating company, PT XL Axiata Tbk (XL), over 1 Gbps High Throughput Satellite (HTS) capacity for the provision of broadband services in Indonesia.

“We are leveraging on Thaicom’s capabilities in Asia to grow our enterprise business quickly and flexibly while providing reliable broadband services to all potential customers regardless of location,” said Axiata's group chief business operations officer Asri Hassan Sabri.

In an emailed statement, he said that the HTS connectivity will serve as an enabler to unlock the digital ecosystem for new market opportunities in places where terrestrial-based connectivity is limited or unavailable.

"As the world’s first ever HTS, launched in 2005, Thaicom’s IPSTAR helps us to connect users in remote and underserved areas of Indonesia cost-effectively. We are confident that the partnership will enable us to continue to grow our business faster without infrastructure limitations,” he said.

XL's chief executive officer Dian Siswarini explained that Indonesia is the biggest archipelago in the world with many areas and islands that have not been served by internet services.

Orange eyes APAC cloud market, expands footprint in Malaysia
The French IT service provider rolls out public cloud services in the region and plans to grow its workforce in Malaysia by 70%

The services include Flexible Engine public cloud, an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering jointly developed with China’s Huawei, along with professional and managed services to assist businesses with cloud migrations and application management.

Orange said its public cloud services, already available in Europe, will support Asian businesses that are looking to expand across China, Southeast Asia and Europe, as well as European companies operating in Asia. The company is planning a US rollout in 2017, followed by the Middle East and Africa in 2018.

Besides touting its global network reach, along with data security and service management capabilities, Orange said the services will make it easier to manage a multi-cloud environment securely by tapping the expertise of Orange Cyberdefense, a dedicated business unit formed in 2015.

Helmut Reisinger, executive vice-president for international business at Orange Business Services, noted that while cloud adoption remains a focus among businesses in 2017, enterprises still face significant challenges such as infrastructure constraints, security concerns and limits in scalability.

“The launch of our new suite of global public cloud services demonstrates our commitment to support enterprises’ digital transformation pursuits in Asia-Pacific and beyond,” Reisinger said, adding that businesses will also get the best of public and private cloud models in a highly-tuned hybrid cloud environment.

To support its growth in the region, Orange has recently moved to a new office in Malaysia that will support the delivery of cloud services across Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, South Korea as well as ASEAN, the fastest growing region for the company.

In addition to providing sales and operations support, the Malaysia office in Kuala Lumpur will offer services such as network design, with localised language support for all Asian customers. It will also bring together global employees skilled in cyber security.

“We believe that this cross-sharing of knowledge and expertise will further elevate our teams’ skillsets and capabilities to better serve our customers in Asia,” said Tuan Le, general manager for ASEAN at Orange Business Services.

Axiata takes majority stake in Thai IT solutions company
BY M. HAFIDZ MAHPAR



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Axiata Group Bhd is acquiring a 65% stake in Suvitech Co Ltd, a Thailand-based owner and operator of a mobile virtual network enabler (MVNE) platform, for “up to” US$11.05mil (RM47.78mil).

Through its MVNE platform, Suvitech provides sales/dealer management, products/pricing and provisioning, and billing for consumer, enterprise and Internet of Things (IoI) services, Axiata told Bursa Malaysia.

Axiata saw the proposed purchase in Suvitech as both strategic and synergistic, as Suvitech’s platform was a plug and play solution for unit Axiata Business Services Sdn Bhd’s (ABS) enterprise and IoT business in Thailand.

Suvitech’s’s MVNE business also fits perfectly into the mobile virtual network operator/enabler (MVNx) strategic pillar of ABS and will provide solid grounds for future growth,” it said.

Axiata said Suvitech’s MVNE platform was fully integrated with a major mobile network provider in Thailand, providing full suite services to a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO). The MVNE platform can also be customised to suit the needs of customers.

Celcom and Ericsson bring 5G to Malaysia


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: The domestic telecommunications technology is set to evolve into a whole new level after Celcom Axiata Bhd and Ericsson on Thursday conducted the country's first 5G trial.

Deputy Minister of Communications and Multimedia Datuk Jailani Johari said the 5G technology was crucial - from empowering the local industry across telecommunication, finance and industrial sectors; to government and private sectors - thus becoming the key to achieving the target to become a developed nation by 2020.

"With the recent launch of the premier digital hub of the world's first Digital Free Trade Zone and Kuala Lumpur Internet City, Malaysia envisions to be the epicentre of South-East Asia's Internet economy.

"This will drive Malaysia to become one of the world's largest purpose-built digital hub for technology giants and leading startups from around the globe.

"This is where 5G comes in and plays a key role in ensuring not only efficiency, but also to open a window of opportunity for digital players.

"Ultimately, 5G will be a solid foundation in creating a strong ecosystem to enable innovation," he said in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday.

Earlier, Celcom chief executive officer Michael Kuehner said Celcom was always committed to developing and continuing the evolution of its network with the latest technologies and to bring the best digital experience to Malaysians.

"5G is very important to Celcom as it will support the development and meet the communication needs of consumers and digitisation of various industries. It is critical that we explore this new generation technology and its capabilities with global partners like Ericsson," he said.

Meanwhile, Todd Ashton, the president of Ericsson Malaysia and Sri Lanka, also described the collaboration with Celcom as a further demonstration of Ericsson's support for Malaysia on its journey towards 5G, following on the success of the Innovation Centre for 5G set up last year with Universiti Teknologi Malaysia.

"Together with partners like Celcom, we will study and test this new technology to capture the full potential of 5G for consumers, business users and entire industries in the country," he said.

Speaking at a press conference later, Kuehner said a lot more trials need to be conducted, from the aspect of technicalities, as well as, the ongoing discussion with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission on the regulatory aspect.

The full roll-out of the network to consumers in Malaysia was expected between 2020 and 2025, while global consumers could experience it as early as February 2018 during the Olympic Winter Games in South Korea and the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2020. - Bernama
