Huawei Spearheads 5G Innovation to Build a Fully Connected, Intelligent Malaysia


In conjunction with Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC)’s intent to spearhead 5G technology implementation in the country, Huawei Technologies on 19th April presented its first ever 5G technology showcase in the country. According to the leading ICT solutions provider, by the year 2025, the world will have 1.3 billion 5G connections, and to support these large numbers of data and users, Huawei is developing simple, powerful, and intelligent networks to continuously create value for its customers.

Michael Yuan, CEO of Huawei Malaysia said “As a trusted partner in Malaysia’s digital transformation, we are strongly committed to building a fully connected, intelligent world and to bring the benefits of digital and AI to every person, home, and organization. 5G is not just about better technology, it is an enabler that will create a more connected society, where high speed Internet is not a privilege, but a basic right for people and businesses.

“We certainly hope that the display of our 5G technology and its benefits, at the 5G Malaysia Showcase event here, will aspire 5G adoptions in different industries. We aim to continue being an enabler of the digital economy growth, including areas such as Smart Manufacturing, Smart Agriculture and Smart Healthcare. We at Huawei look forward to continue working with the Government, participating and promoting the adoption of the new General-Purpose Technologies (GPT) in various key industry domains,” he added.

The 5G technology showcase featured seven different types of products and services namely smart manufacturing, drone 4K live broadcast, facial recognition cloud system, digital healthcare, smart agriculture and aquaculture, Huawei’s RuralStar in remote cellular coverage and lastly, Huawei Mate X, the world’s fastest 5G foldable phone.

Up to now, Huawei has cooperated with more than 50 business partners worldwide in 5G commercial use, ranking first in the number of partners that it works with. The company has also obtained the largest number of 5G commercial contracts (30+) in the world, delivered over 40,000 5G base stations for commercial use globally. Huawei will continue to collaborate with partners to foster and accelerate the maturity of a 5G end-to-end industry and promote 5G scale commercialization for a fully connected, digital nation.
