Maxis is collaborating with Huawei to accelerate 5G in Malaysia: the telco signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Chinese tech giant at the 2019 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
The MoU states that both parties will work to speed up the rollout of 5G technology in the country, working on full-fledged trials with end-to-end systems and services.
“Maxis has long started its 5G journey, and we are already focusing on live trials, investments and evolving our network infrastructure to be ready for a future where smart solutions will be part of everyday life,” Maxis CEO-designate Gokahn Ogut said in a statement.
“We look forward to delivering the best 5G innovation for both consumers and businesses for the future,” he added.
Huawei Malaysia CEO Michael Yuan added that the development of 5G requires the cooperation of its partners and the company is keen to help Maxis expand the boundaries of their business with their simplified 5G products.
“We have signed over 30 commercial contracts as of now and shipped more than 40,000 5G base stations across Europe, Asia and the Middle East,” said Yuan.
