Current 5G Technology Deploys On Non Standalone Architecture

Malaysian Research Accelerator for Technology and Innovation (MRANTI), Digital Nasional Berhad (DNB), and Ericsson have extended their Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the commercialization of 5G-enabled Science, Technology, Innovation, and Economy (STIE) solutions for businesses in Malaysia.

The three parties signed a memorandum of understanding that was presented to the partners at Global System for Mobile Communications Association (GSMA) Mobile World Congress (MWC) Barcelona 2023 event,.

According to the expanded Memorandum of Understanding, the partners will aid in the creation of the MRANTI 5G Experience Centre by offering information and assistance to startups, researchers, innovators, and technology companies in Malaysia to help them become 5G literate. The acceleration of 5G technology adoption by industry is one of its common objectives.

The collaboration will, in the words of MRANTI CEO Dzuleira Abu Bakar, “strengthen MRANTI’s position as the leading 4IR hub with facilities and resources to support industry growth in dronetech, healthtech, agritech, bioscience and 4IR enabling technologies.”

“In particular, we want to hasten the commercialization of STIE-related innovations made possible by 5G. As well as opening our 5G experience centre to businesses, the partners hope to facilitate more focused conversations and interactions with innovators in the upcoming year “A further statement was made by her.

With this renewed partnership, it is hoped that a sizable group of innovators will visit the park. Moving forward, MRANTI, DNB, and Ericsson will continue to collaborate closely on the development of 5G infrastructure, knowledge-sharing sessions, and related capabilities.

“I am hopeful that businesses in the area can now take advantage of the ultrafast and low latency connectivity to develop new and exciting 5G-enabled products and services,” said DNB Chief Operating Officer Nasution Mohamed. Over the past year, DNB has provided 5G coverage to MRANTI Park.

“This initiative will help Malaysia leapfrog the region and become more competitive by preparing it for greater digitalization and adoption of 5G enabled technologies such as large numbers of connected devices, real-time interactions, artificial intelligence, and machine learning,” said David Hägerbro, head of Ericsson Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh.

In July 2018, Ericsson chose Malaysia as the first country in Southeast Asia to manufacture 5G equipment for domestic and regional markets.

In 2021, Ericsson entered a 10-year partnership with DNB to deliver a nationwide 5G single wholesale network for Malaysia. The MRANTI Park’s 5G Experience Centre, which will open in March of this year, will serve as a venue where visitors can learn about 5G technology advancements through use cases and experiences.

Prior to that, the MoU was signed in 2022 with the initial objective of preparing MRANTI Park for 5G technology and increasing local awareness of it. The partnership made the park 5G-ready, enabling download rates of more than 600 Mbps. During MRANTI 5G Open Day and National Science Week, it also hosted physical and digital 5G engagements with MRANTI innovators and the community.
