edotco Deploys First High Speed Mobility Solution Site in Cyberjaya
Cyberjaya, 12 May 2016
edotco Malaysia Sdn Bhd (edotco) today launched its High Speed Mobility Solution for Cyberjaya, in line with the company’s effort to establish high quality shared telecoms infrastructure nationwide.
The solution, which integrates the benefits of fiber, common antenna and towers offers substantial benefits to network operators, such as:
▪ Faster deployment of a Plug & Play model – saving on bandwidth lease as operators are not required to invest on microwave equipment for back haul;
▪ Common radio frequency (RF) antenna sharing;
▪ Aesthetic design to harmonize with the skyline;
▪ Enhanced network coverage and capacity within the vicinity;
▪ Cost-effective with up to 35 percent savings compared to traditional sites deployment.
Described in the industry as a “Base Transceiver Station (BTS) Hotel” , the High Speed Mobility Solution aggregates fixed and wireless traffic resources into a single location to provide shared network connectivity to the operators. This makes it an ideal solution for visionary townships that emphasize skyline harmonization for space-constrained areas, while promoting shared infrastructure.
edotco’s first High Speed Mobility Solution site was rolled out in Cyberjaya during the launch, in partnership with Setia Haruman Sdn Bhd, the master developer of the global technology hub township, and its subsidiary, Setia Haruman Technology who owns the citywide fibre network that interconnects all buildings and towers. This ready infrastructure is able to power up not only high speed connectivity and 4G LTE but other future mobile network technology.
Upon full implementation of the planned 22 High Speed Mobility Solution sites, Cyberjaya will become the first township where network operators can rapidly offer high speed internet and 4G LTE connectivity without a major investment.
edotco Group CEO, Suresh Sidhu said, “At edotco, we recognized the different telecommunication needs in each market and we develop innovative solutions to address them. Our solutions have the entire eco-system in mind – MNOs, governments, regulators, end-users and communities. This partnership with Setia Haruman affirms our commitment to enable connectivity in the country, where in this case we establish high quality shared telecoms infrastructure in Cyberjaya for network operators.”
The launch and implementation of the High Speed Mobility Solution is expected to bring Cyberjaya to another level of fully connected economic hub in Malaysia and in turn, the preferred office location for ICT companies.
Present to officiate the launch of edotco’s High Speed Mobility Solution were Dato’ Mohd Ali Hanafiah Mohd Yunus, Chief Officer, Communications and Digital Ecosystem, Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and Ir. Wan Murdani Wan Mohamad, Director, Digital Enablement of Malaysian Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC).
Dato’ Mohd Ali Hanafiah said, “As Malaysia progresses towards its goal of achieving developed nation status by year 2020, digital economy is a key driver to boost development and international competitiveness. The High Speed Mobility Solution integrated rollout with Setia Haruman will be a game changer for the nation’s tech hub, Cyberjaya and this is just the beginning of its many remarkable ‘firsts’ as we move from an era of creating digital access to one of nurturing digital natives.”
