Celcom Partners With HUAWEI In Creating 5G Innovation Hub
Celcom Axiata Berhad has recently signed an agreement with HUAWEI Technologies to deploy Celcom’s very own 5G Innovation Hub at the Celcom HQ named “@celcom” in Petaling Jaya Sentral.
The new hub will be an opportunity for business partners, technology developers, academia and industry players to experience the fast deployment of new 5G verticals and 5G use cases, maximizing the technology’s potential.
It will also allow Celcom to spearhead future innovations by testing the new 5G network peformance and functionality.
Celcom and HUAWEI will also collaborate to explore further development of the current network, with aims to evolve towards 5G. These include:
- The evolution of RAN equipment to the Next Generation New Radio (NR) Base Station.
- Transport backhaul will be enhanced to carry gigbits of traffic with extremely stringent latency to cope with the demanding requirements of 5G.
- The mobile core network will be upgraded into the NSA Core, equipped with Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) technology to enhance the end user experience of 5G in the future.
The telco company has said that they are looking for approval from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commision (MCMC) to begin 5G network market trials at their new building and surrounding areas.
Pokdepinion: This is certainly a welcoming news. I wonder what services and features that they are able to provide in the future.
