Quote:
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.

French IT service provider Orange Business Services has rolled out a suite of public cloud services in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, pitting itself against a growing list of suppliers hoping to capture a slice of the fast-growing cloud computing market.

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

Malaysia’s Internet connection is Asia-Pacific’s 10th fastest



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s average Internet connection speed is the 10th fastest in Asia-Pacific, says international content delivery network service provider, Akamai.

According to Akamai’s First Quarter 2017 State of the Internet Report, Malaysia has an average connection speed of 8.9 Megabits per second (Mbps), a 9.1% increase from last quarter and a 40% improvement from the first quarter of last year.

“Malaysia’s 10 Mbps Broadband Adoption has also increased, recording a 17% quarter-on-quarter change and a 179% year-on-year improvement,” it said in a statement on Thursday.

It said recent advancements in the Malaysian telecom space, including the introduction of 5G and 4.5G network, had given a strong impetus to digital adoption in the country.

“Malaysia has a growing millennial population of young, tech-savvy consumers with substantial purchasing power.

“Historically, this demographic has always been the early adopters of new technology, and factors such as the growth of smartphone adoption and affordable data plans, stand in Malaysia’s favour towards driving an Internet economy,” it added.

Regionally, the report said South Korea, Hong Kong, and Singapore had an average peak connection speed of above 100 Mbps, while 12 of the surveyed Asia-Pacific countries saw an average peak speed of above 50 Mbps, excluding China, the Philippines and India.

It said Singapore once again led the region and the world with an average peak connection of 184.5 Mbps in the first quarter of this year. - Bernama

Najib: Over 4.2mil households to receive MYTV decoders
BY MARTIN CARVALHO



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Some 4.2mil households that are entitled for BR1M will receive special MYTV decoders as the nation moves towards full digital broadcasting by June 2018.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said that some 2.2mil BR1M households will receive the MYTV decoders free in phases while MYTV Sdn Bhd have committed an additional 2mil decoders.

"This would mean that a total of 4.2mil BR1M households will receive the decoders for free," he said when launching the myFreeview Digital Broadcast at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on Tuesday.

He said the decoders would be fully distributed to the 4.2mil BR1M households by 2018.

He said that myFreeview is a free Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) service.

Najib said the migration towards digital broadcast comes under the National Digitisation Blue Print.

He noted that some 60 developed nations have already ended analogue transmission and migrated to digital broadcast since 2007.

"Asean and Malaysia had set 2015 to 2020 to end analogue transmission.

"Singapore has set 2017 as a target to end analogue transmission while we will end ours by June 2018," he added.

At present, Najib said that myFreeview has an 87% coverage nationwide and that this would be expanded to 98% by the end of this year.

He said that the myFreeview will be the combination of free-to-air broadcasts by Media Prima, RTM, TV AlHijrah and Bernama TV.

This, he added, will allow Malaysians access to nine stations namely TV1, TV2, TVi, TV AlHijrah, TV3, NTV7, 8TV and Bernama News Channel.

There will also be four RTM radio stations - Nasional FM, Traxx FM, Minnal FM and Ai FM.

Najib said that more content would eventually be added to the service including interactive online shopping and mobile TV.

Maxis sees high demand for 4G in East Malaysia
June 9, 2017, Friday Sharon Kong, [email protected]


Bong (left) posing with Navin (right) at the launching of Hotlink FAST in Kuching yesterday.

Quote:
KUCHING: Maxis Bhd (Maxis) saw a surge in demand for 4G services particularly from Sabah and Sarawak on the back of rising consumer data needs.

According to Maxis head of Sarawak region Alexius Bong, to date, consumers today are using more data on the back of an increase in smartphone penetration and growing accessibility to the internet.

“Smartphone penetration in Sabah and Sarawak has grown to 77 per cent while the average internet usage for 4G users now amounts 7.1 gigabites (GB) for East Malaysians. This amount of 4G usage is 10 per cent higher than the nationwide average of 6.5GB,” he said to reporters during the launch of Hotlink FAST.

Hotlink FAST is Maxis’ latest prepaid plan, offering consumers greater features to more data.

Sarawak is in fact the state with the highest consumption rate in Malaysia, added Maxis’ head of prepaid, Navin Manian.

“With the explosion of streaming and sharing on social media, we have seen a surge in demand for 4G data especially in East Malaysia. In fact, usage (here) is among the highest in the country, averaging 7.1GB per month for those on 4G,” he added.

To note, Maxis’ 4G LTE network is the widest in the country with 89 per cent population coverage. Particularly in Kuching and Kota Kinabalu, Maxis has more than 98 per cent 4G coverage and more than 80 per cent in secondary and tertiary towns in East Malaysia.

In Sarawak, customers in secondary towns (such as Sibu, Miri and Bintulu) as well as tertiary towns (such as Bau, Lundu, Sematan, Padawan, Saratok, Niah and Betong) are now enjoying 4G experience with fibre-like speeds.

Meanwhile, in Sabah, Maxis’ 4G LTE network has also been rolled out in towns like Putatan, Semporna, Kota Belud, Papar and Beaufort in addition to Sandakan, Lahad Datu and Tawau.

This was among the reason why Maxis enhanced its prepaid offerings via Hotlink FAST.

“This new prepaid offering from Maxis comes with even more data. This means customers in East Malaysia can now surf, stream and share non-stop,on the No.1 4G network,” Navin added.

Now availabe in Sabah and Sarawak, Hotlink FAST comes with free 8GB of 4G data during the weekends together with free 1,000 minute calls to five friends using Maxis or Hotlink numbers.

Customers will enjoy these benefits for life, as long as they keep their account active, Navin said. There is no minimum spend or minimum reload required.

“In addition, Hotlink FAST customers can also look forward to the newly launched Hotlink Happy Hour that offers 1 Hour of Free 1GB high-speed Internet daily during the week,” he explained.

“In total, Hotlink Happy Hour offers Free 30GB of high-speed Internet every month. While other prepaid free data is limited and exclusive to certain app usage, such as social media apps. Hotlink FAST offers customers unrestricted app and internet usage.

“Customers will also be getting ‘Internet Larut Malam’ that offers free 1GB of high-speed Internet every night (from 1am to 7am). That is free 30GB of high-speed Internet Larut Malam every month with no app and Internet restriction as well.”

The Hotlink FAST starter pack is priced at RM10 and comes with 300MB preloaded 4G high-speed Internet, RM5 preloaded airtime and free basic Internet, on top of the 8GB weekend 4G Internet every month and free calls to Friendz.

Naza unit, partners ink Nuri deal
Published on: Friday, June 23, 2017


Quote:
Kuala Lumpur: Naza Corp Holdings Sdn Bhd's unit, Naza Communications Sdn Bhd, has inked a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with its collaboration partners to empower selected rural communities through the usage of mobile broadband with Naza Universal Rural Initiatives (NURI) Programme.

The collaboration partners are Malaysian application developers, Buy Malaysia, Car Bengkel, Ezyhaul, Living Space, My Homestay Malaysia and the Telecommunications Engineering College (TEC).

Chief Operating Officer of Naza Communications, Subhash Devan, said the NURI Programme, a multi-phase three-year programme, would be implemented around 200 villages in 80 locations nationwide in three phases throughout a 36-month plan.

"Naza Communications plans to achieve its objective through three criteria, to increase the income of selected rural communities through the mobile economy; utilise mobile applications in assisting the transformation of rural areas to uplift their well-being; and, instil responsible Internet usage to promote lifelong learning and skills enhancement," he told reporters after the MOU signing ceremony.

He said the first phase of the NURI Programme has already been carried out earlier this year at 10 villages in Kedah and Perak.

Naza Communications engaged with TEC as its education partner, together with Human Resources Development Fund and Yayasan Peneraju Bumiputera, to implement the Graduates Enhancement Programme for Employability and Peneraju Skil Iltizam programmes to develop skilled technicians among school leavers and unemployed graduates in selected villages.

TEC would be a one- stop centre to deliver the learning needs for the programme, he said. – Bernama
