edotco to transform mobile experience for Sunway Digital Wave with next generation telecommunication infrastructure solutions
Petaling Jaya, 29 June 2018: edotco Malaysia Sdn Bhd, today, entered into a seven-year mobile infrastructure collaboration with Sunway Digital Wave Sdn Bhd. A business unit of Sunway Technology Group, Sunway Digital Wave manages various telecommunication and information technology requirements for the Sunway Group.
edotco Malaysia will design, build and manage the telecommunications infrastructure for Sunway Digital Wave. The mobile telecommunication infrastructure will then be deployed in Sunway Group’s integrated townships nationwide, including Sunway Group’s commercial buildings, medical centers, universities and shopping malls.
The commercial developments of Sunway Geo, Sunway Pyramid, Sunway Putra and Sunway Velocity will be the first few sites to be fitted with the updated solutions. Other Sunway developments and townships will see similar installations in phases across seven years.
Among the innovative technologies that will be deployed are a network of antennas for in-building solutions (IBS), small cells, and multi-tenant BTS (Base Transceiver Stations) Hotels which will enable mobile operators to rapidly increase their capacity. The telecommunications infrastructure will have camouflage elements that will help it integrate seamlessly into its surroundings.
