BY LEE KAH LENG

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.

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

5G Technology to transform the Malaysia's communications landscape
By NST Business - August 15, 2017 @ 5:06pm


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: NEC Corporation of Malaysia Sdn Bhd and Netcracker Technology announced today their collaboration with technology giants Red Hat, Juniper Networks and Dell EMC to offer an end-to-end multivendor 5G-ready virtualization platform for service providers and enterprises in Malaysia.

In a statement today, the company said the partnership will see NEC Corporation of Malaysia/Netcracker positioning itself as a full SDN/NFV (Software-Defined Networking/Network Functions Virtualisation) solution provider.

At the SDN/NFV Solution and Partnership launch today, NEC Corporation managing director Chong Kai Wooi said service providers and enterprises in Malaysia will eventually have the need to adapt to 5G technologies to stay competitive in a global economy.

“Around the world we are seeing service providers in the US, South Korea, Sweden, Estonia, Turkey, Japan and China upgrading their network infrastructure in preparation to offer 5G communications services which are imminent.

“Commercialising such services, including the massive connectivity of people, transportation, objects and cities, is expected to take off in the next two to three years.

“With our SDN/NFV 5G-ready solution, companies will be able to speed up the time-to-market for their potential communications services and/or any applications that run on 5G technology, improve cost efficiency and have the ability to offer new, revenue generating-services,” he said.

A 2017 study conducted by the European Communications on behalf of Netcracker, which surveyed individuals representing 56 different service providers in the communications industry from around the world, discovered that the top four benefits expected from SDN/NFV solutions include reduced time-to-market, improved network efficiency, capital expenditure savings and the opportunity to create and innovate new services, including over-the-top services.

Today, service providers and enterprises need six to twelve months to introduce a new service.

With the full service SDN/NFV solution in place, leveraging on the Ecosystem 2.0 Program, the time to launch new enterprise services can be reduced by up to 70 percent, according to a research by Netcracker, it said.

Netcracker chief technology officer Aloke Tusnial said as the industry moves quickly towards 5G technology, getting the management and orchestration environment right is critical to enable new IoT use cases requiring dynamic network slicing.

“This is a key focus for us at Netcracker and we are delighted to be part of this strong collaboration to bring 5G virtualization to market faster,” he said.

The company said with 5G, public services can be enhanced further to offer next level of services where federal and state governments to connect people, transportation, objects and cities at higher speed and with fewer delays.

Besides that, it said smart cities or smart communities will also be closer to reality.

As technology affects nearly all aspects of life, many governments are committed to staying current with technological developments and innovation to improve the lives of their citizens and continue to evolve in the global economy, it said.

By offering a multivendor 5G-ready virtualization platform, NEC Corporation is optimistic that it can contribute significantly to its revenues in Malaysia.

Currently, 50 per cent of its revenues are derived from carrier solutions, and the other 50 per cent from enterprise and public safety solutions.

“As service providers and 5G technology services take centre stage in the near future, we foresee our SDN/NFV solution to contribute 10 per cent to our carrier solutions revenues for the first year and 30 per cent for the next three years,” said Chong.

Malaysia: Axiata unit close to acquiring Veon Towers in $1b deal
Elffie Chew, Faseeh Mangi August 29, 2017


Quote:
Axiata Group Bhd., the biggest Malaysian mobile operator, is nearing a deal to acquire Veon Ltd.’s Pakistan wireless towers for around $1 billion, people familiar with the matter said.

Edotco Group Sdn., Axiata’s infrastructure arm, plans to announce an agreement as soon as this week, according to the people.

The purchase of about 13,000 towers will make Edotco the biggest independent telecommunications tower operator in the South Asian nation, one of the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private.

Axiata has been pursuing overseas deals as it seeks to reduce reliance on a home market where it’s losing subscribers and average customer revenue is flattening.

Any deal will add to the $3.1 billion of acquisitions announced in Pakistan over the past 12 months, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

The acquisition would help Kuala Lumpur-based Axiata meet a goal of expanding its overseas infrastructure operations ahead of an eventual listing of the business.

Axiata wants to increase its phone towers in Southeast Asia and South Asia to 26,000 from 16,000 within three years, Chief Executive Officer Jamaludin Ibrahim said in an interview last year.

Shares of Axiata have fallen 12 percent over the past year, giving the company a market value of $10.2 billion.

A representative for Edotco said he couldn’t immediately comment, while a spokesman for Veon’s Pakistan unit declined to comment.

Last year, Axiata bought control of Nepalese operator Ncell Pvt for $1.4 billion.

The company also has interests in Indonesia, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

Axiata said earlier this month that Edotco had completed the $89 million purchase of Tanzanite Tower Pvt, which owns about 700 phone towers in Pakistan.

Veon, the wireless carrier formerly known as VimpelCom Ltd., said earlier this month it was in advanced talks to sell its Pakistan tower business to an unnamed buyer.

A deal could come as soon as the second half of this year, Veon Chief Executive Officer Jean-Yves Charlier said in an August interview.

Celcom confident of increasing LTE coverage to 85pc
Published on: Wednesday, September 13, 2017


Quote:
Kuala Lumpur: Celcom Axiata Bhd is confident of increasing its LTE (4G mobile network) population coverage to 85 per cent by year-end from the current 77 per cent, said Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Michael Kuehner.

He said the company had allocated RM1.5 billion as capital expenditure (capex), of which RM400 million was utilised during the first two quarters of 2017.

"Our capex remains at RM1.5 billion for this year, and we are investing around RM1 billion for ongoing network expansion, which is within the approved budget," he said during a media briefing on Celcom's second quarter business update here, yesterday.

Kuehner said the telco company's quarterly performance showed positive signs of further stabilisation in an increasingly saturated industry.

He noted that Celcom had improved in terms of addressing consumers' needs, and the company had streamlined its financial and operational management.

On the recent spectrum refarming project, Kuehner said Celcom had formed a high-calibre cross-functional team, ahead of the deadline set by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission.

The team completed the first phase of the project delivered in March and the second at end-June.

"The telecommunication spectrum refarming of the 900MHz and 1800MHz frequencies will enhance network services at affordable rates in the urban and rural areas," he said, adding, the exercise covered 7,400 sites in six regions.

Meanwhile, Chief Financial Officer, Jennifer Wong said the ongoing cost optimisation efforts under the company's transformational "Accelerated Cost Efficiency" programme was expected to strengthen the company's profitability.

Celcom posted higher service revenue and total revenue quarter-on-quarter in increasing 1.4 per cent to RM1.495 billion and 0.7 per cent to RM1.621 billion, respectively. – Bernama

NEC Completes Construction of "SKR1M," a 100Gbps Submarine Cable in Malaysia


SKR1M Route Map


Quote:
Tokyo, September 20, 2017 - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) today announced the completion of the Sistem Kabel Rakyat 1Malaysia (SKR1M) 100 gigabit per second (Gbps) submarine cable linking Peninsular Malaysia with Sabah and Sarawak.

SKR1M was established through a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) collaboration between Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) and the Malaysian Government through the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC). TT dotCom Sdn Bhd (TTdC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of TIME dotCom Berhad (TIME) also funded and owns a portion of this submarine cable.

SKR1M was built with the objective of enhancing the existing domestic submarine cable connectivity between Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak, thus catering for future bandwidth growth requirements. The new submarine cable system spans over 3,800 kilometers and lands at six landings, namely, Kuantan, Mersing, Kuching, Bintulu, Miri, and Kota Kinabalu. It is upgradable to 12.8 terabits per second (Tbps) of capacity.

Datuk Seri Panglima Dr Mohd Salleh Tun Said Keruak, Minister of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia said, "This new submarine cable system is part of the Government's initiatives via MCMC to increase the capacity of high-speed broadband and data traffic between Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah and Sarawak. This is among the measures which the Government is undertaking to improve the socio-economic status of people in Sabah and Sarawak through ICT adoption and broadband connectivity and was mentioned by our honorable Prime Minister during the tabling of the 2014 budget. Thus, I am delighted that today, this goal has become a reality."

Atsuo Kawamura, Executive Vice President of NEC Corporation said, "NEC has been active in the submarine cable system business for more than 40 years, and in 1980, NEC supplied Malaysia with its first domestic coaxial submarine cable system. NEC has laid a total of more than 250,000 kilometers of cable—the equivalent of six trips around the earth's equator, and we are now recognized as one of the world's top submarine cable vendors. On this occasion, I would like to extend my congratulations to MCMC and TM, and my heart-felt thanks for yet again selecting NEC as your partner to build SKR1M. I sincerely hope that our partnership will be further enhanced, and be given the next opportunity to contribute to the various regions of Malaysia."

TM offers free internet at 5,800 hotspots nationwide with i-foundit! app
By RUPA DAMODARAN and ARNAZ M. KHAIRUL - September 25, 2017 @ 10:49pm



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Telekom Malaysia's Unifi service will be available free of charge at 5,800 hotspots around the country via the national telco's 'i-foundit!' app until Dec 31.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, in launching the 'i-foundit!' app today, said this is part of TM's answer to the government's call for higher speed internet connection in tandem with the rapid growth of the digital industry.

"We were even talking about internet data at double the speed and half the price, which TM says they can deliver soon, by 2019," said Najib.

The 'i-foundit!' app can be downloaded via the Google Play Store or App Store soon.

The app locates wifi hotspots and connects its users to them. After Dec 31, users will only be charged 10 sen per hour for data use over the app.

At the same function, Najib said Malaysia's multi billion ringgit investments in the United States recently have been taken out of context by other parties to confuse the people.

Najib said the procurement of 25 Boeing aircraft for Malaysia Airlines and real estate investments by the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) were decisions made by these organisations' respective investment panels made up of professionals.

"It wasn't me who decided," said Najib, addressing a crowd of over 28,000 Telekom Malaysia management and staff.

"It was the investment panels with professionals and experts, who see the benefits of such investments for the workforce in the country, who are EPF contributors.

"Where investments locally usually generate profits of about seven per cent, by investing in the United States, the benefits will be 11 per cent, which will be returned in the form of dividends for EPF contributors.

"This has been distorted by 'the other side' to confuse the people and make it seem like we are just going and spending billions in the US for nothing," he said.

Najib said such investments are part of a global investment strategy aimed at bringing profits to the country, which will eventually benefit the people.

Myren-X uses blazing broadband speed 100Gbps to link all public varisites - PM Najib
By SYED UMAR ARIFF
October 4, 2017 @ 6:53pm



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Research and Education Network's online ecosystem has been upgraded to Myren-X, which links all 20 public universities at a blazing speed of 100 gigabytes per second.

Launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak today, the cloud-based network is also connected to 130 public higher learning institutions nationwide including polytechnics, community colleges and teaching hospitals.

The ecosystem's speed is the first and fastest in Malaysia.

Najib said the speed was in line with Malaysia's objective to meet the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR4.0), which emphasises on the use of efficient cyber infrastructure.

"We are in this journey to face IR4.0 and the era of digital economy.

"We need an infrastructure which will provide faster connectivity to facilitate access and collaboration especially for research and education," he said in his speech.

Najib outlined two possibilities in the advancement of research and education through Myren-X.

"Firstly, it is possible to produce (Malaysia's own) Nobel Laureate scientists, through research in Frontier of Knowledge (programme) which is a collaboration between the world's researchers.

"Secondly, (Myren-X) will be able to transform the country's higher learning (system) into an ubiquitous medium, whereby learning can be done anytime and anywhere, other than meeting current and future job demands," he said.

Najib said previously the ecosystem was known as Myren, and linked to only public universities.

"(Back then) our researchers and academicians were left behind in various fields to create high-impact research, particularly those involving big data.

"Myren could only provide speed of 20 megabytes per second for each university," he said.

Najib said Myren-X was the outcome of efforts to increase the speed of broadband service in public universities to a maximum 100 gigabytes per second, as tabled in the 2017 Budget.

"This is also to ensure that the cyber infrastructure at all public higher learning institutions are on par with the ones in developed countries," he said.

Myren-X is managed by a consortium of all 20 public universities known as Myren Network Sdn Bhd. which is spearheaded by Universiti Teknologi Mara through UiTM Holdings Sdn Bhd.

Also present were Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak, Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh and his deputy Datuk Dr Mary Yap Kain Ching

Maxis, Digi, Celcom have better chance getting 700MHz portion: MIDF Research
By NST Business - October 12, 2017 @ 10:33am
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Maxis Bhd, Digi.Com Bhd, Celcom Axiata Bhd, U Mobile Sdn Bhd and YTL Communications Sdn Bhd have a better chance of getting a fair portion of the coveted 700 megahertz (MHz), premised on the rollout of mobile services on 2,600Mhz.

In a research report today, MIDF Research said Maxis and Celcom may bid for one block of 2x5Mhz while Digi and U Mobile may bid for two blocks of 2x5Mhz to compensate for the shortfall in 900Mhz.

Based on the current allocation of 900Mhz, Maxis and Celcom have 2x10Mhz each while Digi and U Mobile have 2x5Mhz each.

MIDF Research said taking cue from the current allocation of 2,600Mhz, a total of eight mobile telecommunication service providers could be bidding for the 700Mhz spectrum.

These include Maxis, Digi, Celcom, U Mobile, Webe, Altel, Redtone and YTL Comm (YES).

Nonetheless, Maxis and Celcom may bid for one block of 2x5Mhz while Digi and U Mobile may bid for two blocks of 2x5Mhz to compensate for the shortfall in 900Mhz.

Assuming that each bidder bids for one or two blocks of the frequency band, Maxis, Digi, Celcom, and YTL Communications have sufficient cash reserve to fund the bidding, MIDF Research said.

From the available payment options, MIDF Research said the first option – of a total spectrum amount of RM215 million with a payment tenure of one year, at an average annual fee of RM215.25 million – would be the most viable.

However, it said there is a possibility that the bidders may also opt for the instalment term.

“This is in view of the annual maintenance fee and more importantly, the capital expenditure (capex) required to efficiently rollout the services on the 700Mhz frequency band.

“Note that the mobile telecommunication service providers may balance between the allocation of the spectrum band and the capex required for the infrastructure.

“Nonetheless, we view that should Digi bid and opt for a lump sum payment for two blocks of the 700Mhz spectrum, it could affect its dividend payment ability, where Digi typically pays 100 per cent of its net earnings,” it said.

Meanwhile, MIDF Research said given that the successful bidders would need to pay a hefty sum for the 700Mhz next year, there is a possibility that the spectrum allocation for much awaited 2,300Mhz and 2,600Mhz could be postpone further.

This would provide more time for the telcos to strengthen their respective financial position.

The Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) announced the 700Mhz frequency band available from January 1, 2019, will be assigned via tender.

To participate, telcos will need to submit a five-year detailed business plan based on 2x5Mhz spectrum block.

A total of eight spectrum blocks will be made available and each bidder may only apply up to four spectrum blocks.

MCMC provides several payment options for the bidders with payment terms of up to 15 years which would raise the spectrum cost up to RM417.1 million from RM215.5 million.

In addition, successful bidders have to pay an annual fee of RM18.5 million for each year of the 15 years of spectrum for each of the 2x5Mhz spectrum block.

MIDF Research reiterated its neutral stance for the sector.

“Competition remains intense as mobile players are constantly solidifying its market position.

“On another note, the hefty cost of acquiring and maintaining new spectrum allocation serves as a challenge to local mobile players.

“To seek refuge from the competitive mobile landscape, we advise investor to shift the telecommunication portfolio to fixed line players such as Telekom Malaysia Bhd who control the majority of the fixed line market,” it said.

Business
Kota Kinabalu’s free WiFi service to spur Sabah’s digital economy
October 21, 2017, Saturday


Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: The introduction of free broadband or WiFi service in Kota Kinabalu will help promote the development of Sabah’s digital economy and tourism industry, Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Aman said.

He said the service would also become a platform for future public initiatives in developing and enhancing the e-government digital network.

“I am confident the service will be able to attract more foreign direct investments and turn Kota Kinabalu into a business-friendly and liveable city, as well as a pleasant place to visit,” he said at the launch of the facility yesterday.

Musa said the WiFi service would also enable Kota Kinabalu to become a smart city, enabling people to work wherever they are and anytime they want, while enhancing the effectiveness and productivity of the state and country.

“Increased use of e-services in both the public and private sectors has also made online services a norm. People now prefer to get information online and entertainment via internet applications,” he said.

Earlier, Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak said the Kota Kinabalu’s free WiFi project for people and tourists, which began in May last year, would also help enhance information and communications technology (ICT) literacy in the community.

He said the WiFi service, which was developed through a public and private partnership between the Kota Kinabalu City Hall and Borneo Global Connect Sdn Bhd, was aimed at positioning Kota Kinabalu to be on par with other cities in terms of ICT facilities and Internet access,” he said.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has also agreed to develop WiFi facilities in rural Sabah, Salleh said, adding that, “In terms of implementation, the federal government will discuss with the state government on how the project to ensure it would run smoothly,” he said. — Bernama

City WiFi benefits locals and tourists
21st October, 2017
By DK RYNI QAREENA

Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: The newly launched KK City WIFI will benefit locals and tourists in KK with free internet access.

“On May 2016, I had raised the proposal on the need to set up free WiFi service for the people and tourists in this city,” said Communications and Multimedia (MCMC) Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak.

He added that a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed on Sept 23 last year between Kota Kinabalu City Hall (DBKK) and Borneo Global Connect Sdn Bhd in the effort to place KK City on the same level with other ICT savvy and internet accessible cities.

“This project will provide free WiFi access around KK; to maintain its quality, the WiFi access would be connected with high speed fibre,” said Salleh during the KK City WIFI launching ceremony here yesterday.

The first phase of KK City WIFI covers hot spots around the city from Jalan Tun Fuad Stephens to Jalan Pantai – Jalan Tugu, Lintasan Deasoka, Kg. Air and Shell Plaza.

According to Salleh, the project is in line with MCMC target to improve communication infrastructure in Sabah.

“Through MCMC, focus is given to include wider broadband, improve service quality and close the digital gap through digital services such as e-government, e-health, e-commerce, e-payment and more.

“To generate strategy for the digital economy development, good broadband connection is seen as the main catalyst where RM1 billion was allocated for 2017,” he asserted.

This include rural broadband project which will improve internet speed from 5Mbps to 20Mbps; high speed broadband project (HSBB) and submarine cable system (SKR1M) which connects Peninsula with Sabah and Sarawak.


“To encourage broadband usage, the government has set a vision that in two years, users will enjoy broadband twice as fast for half the price,” noted Salleh.

Meanwhile, DBKK director of Information Technology department, David Ng said some 55,000 registered users have been recorded using the free WiFi since early this year.

“Users only have to register through any social media. With the speed of 30Mbps, each user is entitled to 10GB of quota with no time limit every day,” he said.

According to Ng, the KK City WIFI is modeled after New York City WIFI structure which provides strong Access Point (AP) thus creating a wider coverage.

“The APs are close to each other so when users move from one place to another, they would not lose the connection,” he said, adding that Gaya Street is the only area that has not been equipped with the free WiFi.

“We face technical issue in Gaya Street because of the limited space to place the APs. We will have to discuss with business owners to place APs over the buildings.

“However, they are very cooperative and I believe the free WiFi would also benefit their business,” said Ng adding that the project is expected to be completed next week.

He further stated that phase two of the KK City WIFI will cover the cycle-way from Taman Awam Teluk Likas all the way to Imago cycle-way.

Also present during the launching ceremony yesterday were Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Haji Aman, Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun, Assistant Minister of Agriculture and Food Industry, Datuk Musbah Haji Jamli and Mayor Datuk Yeo Boon Hai
