edotco Introduces Innovative Mobility Solution for Telecom Operators
KUALA LUMPUR, 21 January 2016
edotco Malaysia Sdn Bhd (edotco) today launched an innovative product for telecom operators, the edotco Mobility Solution (eMOS), first of its kind in Malaysia.
eMOS is a mobile cell site consists of a cellular antenna tower and electronic radio transceiver equipment, designed to be part of a cellular network typically on a temporary or short-term basis. Used to provide extended cellular network coverage for short-term demands in areas where cellular coverage and capacity is minimal, was never present or was compromised by natural disaster.
The first in Malaysia, eMOS promotes sharing of mobile cell site amongst multiple telecom operators. This is instrumental in allowing a number of operators to enter remote regions/areas that would normally cost higher in rollouts.
The major advantage of eMOS for telecom operators are:
- Rapid set-up for telecommunication services at temporary locations;
- Can be deployed to supplement a growing market in advance of a fixed tower. In addition to short-term uses, eMOS can also be used for medium-term situations such as limitations involving property rights or ecological restrictions;
- Allow operators to cut down on capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operations expenditure (OPEX)
The partnership with Virtech Engineering, a services company with comprehensive technical expertise in telecommunications industry to establish the first-in-the-country eMOS, affirms edotco’s commitment to enabling connectivity in the country; delivering reliable and superior infrastructure to the operators through the deployment and effective management of passive telecoms infrastructure.
