Huawei collaborates with Telekom Malaysia

Huawei today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Telekom Research & Development (TM R&D), a wholly owned subsidiary of Telekom Malaysia (TM).

The MoU aims to launch joint innovation efforts to co-develop next generation access technologies for both fixed line and wireless connectivity in Malaysia. The two will jointly research the most suitable, customized copper access and 4G solutions for Malaysia’s fixed and broadband landscapes. Through this collaboration, both parties will share research facilities and encourage knowledge transferring, as well as establish a joint lab within the TM Innovation Center, in Cyberjaya within the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) of Malaysia.

Commenting on the partnership, Mike Wang said, “By jointly developing technologies that utilize TM’s existing copper wires, TM can make efficient use of resources, quickly implement bandwidth strategies, and launch additional new services, including IPTV and HDTV based on the fast broadband to score more commercial success.”

“The collaboration reflects our commitment to evolve the nation’s HSBB network project and underpins the long term value of TM’s current assets. We believe the next generation access technologies will further enhance our broadband user experience and TM’s wireless coverage in the long run,” said Dr Gopi Kurup.

“Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC) is not only one of the most important trends in the industry but also a strategic turning point for telecom operators. Huawei has rich experience in FMC. We are willing to share our knowledge with TM, to help our customer prepare for the challenges and opportunities that the Digital Economy brings,” Mike Wang concluded.
