Maxis, Huawei accelerate preparation for transition into 5G-ready networks

Maxis and Huawei are gearing up for the next frontier in 5G innovation and development by collaborating on a 5G TechCity in Malaysia.


KATHMANDU – Maxis and Huawei have intensified preparation for transition into 5G-ready networks in Kuala Lumpur as part of their TechCity initiative.

Issuing a statement on Tuesday, they have begun scaling up 4G network to prepare for a seamless transition to 5G. Maxis selected key areas in Kuala Lumpur to conduct trials with Huawei, with a focus to increase 4G capacity and user experience, enable fast 5G deployment, and achieve optimization of network resources – all of which will prepare for 5G deployment once a spectrum is made available.

Earlier in January, Maxis and Huawei signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate on building ‘an excellent 5G target network, the incubation of new services with new business models and to provide the best user experience in building an intelligent, connected world.’

Through the programme, Maxis joined global leading operators in having closer R&D collaboration and access to the latest development of 5G applications. Huawei’s TechCity had already been launched in leading cities such as London, Seoul and Tokyo.

According to the statement, Maxis undertook the first trial of a new radio solution in 4G network with FDD (Frequency Division Duplex) massive MIMO to boost radio capacity by providing higher network gains for existing user devices on a live network.

Huawei also said that they successfully completed trials in LTE and New Radio (LNR), utilizing Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) in the 1800MHz frequency. This is an Asia Pacific Region first exploration for sub-3GHz frequency testing, which allows Maxis to reuse existing 4G frequency and equipment to offer 5G in the future, which can increase spectrum efficiency up to 1.5x compared to conventional static refarming, according to the statement.

“The 5G TechCityprogramme aims to foster an ecosystem of smart solutions that will be key drivers for the nation’s digital economy and elevate its competitiveness from an Industry 4.0 standpoint. We are pleased to be progressing on this programme with a global technology leader and our long term partner, Huawei. Their experience, expertise and capabilities complement our ambitions to be Malaysia’s leading converged solutions provider.

We are committed to delivering seamless digital connectivity for all Malaysians, which will pave the way for a steady transition into 5G technology deployment in line with the nation’s JENDELA aspirations,” the statement quoted Morten Bangsgaard, Maxis Chief Technology and Information Officer, as saying.

“Malaysia has been making tremendous headway with its forward ICT policies towards building a digital economy, and TechCity is fundamental to this journey to cultivate a robust ecosystem to deliver exceptional user experience and network efficiency. We are pleased to be working with Maxis on the TechCity initiative to successfully create 5G solutions that can be replicated in global markets,” said Huawei CEO of Malaysia, Michael Yuan, in the statement.
