EDOTCO team up with Telecom Infra Project to offer 5G/4G in-building solutions in Malaysia

EDOTCO Group Sdn Bhd will start a strategic initiative with Telecom Infra Project in Malaysia as part of a series of pilots before making the 5G connection accessible to a broader part of the region in the next three years.

In a statement today, EDOTCO said the initiative will deploy six pilot in-building solutions with a Neutral Host model and shareable 4G and 5G small cells in identified iconic buildings in Malaysia, such as the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, KL Sentral and Merdeka 118.

It said that the effort will provide better indoor coverage for users — in tandem with the increasing requirement to generate more traffic in the next decade. 

With the deployment of the solution, it added that mobile users will be able to enjoy high speed, low latency and metaverse-ready internet experience.

Through this initiative, TIP will provide strategic direction and technical know-how to improve global best practices for in-building solutions scalable worldwide. EDOTCO, on the other hand, will own, operate, manage and lease the infrastructure as a Neutral Host Network-As-A-Service model to telecom operators. 

Upon implementation success, EDOTCO intends to roll out sharable small cells in mass quantities, replicated in other Asian markets within their footprint. — TMR / graphic TMR
