In its commitment to accelerate technology breakthroughs and digital transformation, Maxis is working closely with its 5G Alliance partners on initiatives to create and commercialize 5G use cases and IoT solutions across industries in Malaysia and Asia-Pacific.
Since its launch in June 2022, Maxis 5G Alliance has gained momentum, adding seven new partners, namely Gamuda Land, Garuda Robotics, ITXOTIC, LinkUp Smart Solutions, NOKIA, NVIDIA and ZTE, bringing the total to 23 members.
“At Maxis, we remain committed to bringing 5G to the nation and are excited to leverage the benefits that 5G will bring to businesses in strengthening Malaysia’s competitiveness in the region. Our 5G Alliance community is expected to continue growing as it is intended to be an open collaboration across all organisations to fast-track the adoption and deployment of innovation. Members will benefit from this ecosystem where their collaboration and initiatives can foster innovation and truly unlock the value of IR4.0 across economic sectors,” said Gokhan Ogut, chief executive officer, Maxis.
As one of the initiatives, the GSMA APAC virtual event – 5G Ecosystem: Unlocking opportunities through strategic partnership – will be held on September 20. Maxis is a key partner for the event and will gather tech and industry leaders to drive innovation, partnerships, policies, and the ecosystem at large. With APAC being a huge market with great opportunities, the event aims to be a catalyst for regional support to educate industries and strengthen the ecosystem through collaboration and advocacy.
Meanwhile, Maxis, together with Alliance partner OMRON, is showcasing Autonomous Mobile Robots powered by Maxis’ next-generation network, enabling a plant to run 24/7 with zero downtime, reduce operational costs and improve safety and productivity for manufacturers.
In another initiative, Maxis, Huawei and MIMOS are fast-tracking industrial use cases enabled by 5G, IoT, Cloud and Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the 5G and AI Innovation Hub at the MIMOS campus. The hub serves as a co-creation testbed for research and development and an incubator for innovative solutions, which will enable businesses to access infrastructure and facilities powered by advanced technologies.
