edotco Poised to Usher in the Era of Internet of Things 
Kuala Lumpur, 13 September 2016

edotco Group Sdn Bhd (“edotco”) announced today that its innovation, experience and regional network are ready to support the Internet of Things (IoT) aspirations of Axiata and Atilze, after reaching an agreement to provide 25 sites for low-power, long-range wireless protocol (LoRa) networks in Klang Valley.

Axiata and Atilze have recently announced their 12-month collaboration agreement to trial, explore, develop and pursue viable IoT opportunities across Southeast Asia. Their immediate focus would be on connected car solutions as well as commercializing city-wide LoRa network deployments by implementing Proof-of-Concept (POC) pilots in Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.

LoRa technology allows for connectivity solutions at reduced costs with wide coverage and efficient power consumption, making it an environmentally friendly solution as well. Several global telecom companies have thrown their weight behind this technology, designed to cater to IoT applications and services.

Wan Zainal Adileen Wan Puteh, edotco Group Chief Sales & Marketing Officer remarked that, “The recent developments represent an exciting opportunity for edotco as our philosophy is to pursue high quality innovative telecoms infrastructure solutions. The efficiencies and seamless connectivity that can be achieved by leveraging our wide infrastructure coverage and regional footprint will enable breakthrough applications to be implemented.”

Even at the POC stages, established innovative infrastructure plays a critical role in providing the right support for any potential deployment. As more organizations begin to explore IoT opportunities, the capability of the infrastructure becomes paramount to eventual success.

This agreement with Axiata and Atilze follows suit similar agreements with Symphonet Sdn Bhd to provide the backbone infrastructure to sustain their broadband services, and with MSD Digital Intelligence Sdn Bhd, who are in collaboration with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) for the “Pusat Internet 1Malaysia” project, enabling ICT and mobile connectivity in rural areas.

edotco is a regional integrated telecommunications infrastructure services company in Asia with more than 16,000 towers in Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Pakistan and Myanmar.
