KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 30 — Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) has embarked on a total of 11 use cases in Langkawi and deployed the operations of an Integrated Operations Command Centre (IOCC) which is at the heart of 5G implementation in Langkawi.
TM said the state-of-the-art IOCC, also known as 5G Command Centre (5GCC), is an integrated command centre where the data feed and dashboard monitoring of TM 5G network and use cases in Langkawi are centralised.
Group chief executive officer Datuk Noor Kamarul Anuar Nuruddin said the company is fully supportive of Malaysia Communications and Multimedia Commission’s 5G Demonstration Project (MCMC’s 5GDP) and is currently testing the implementation of a converged 5G core network which allows co-existence of a Non-Stand Alone (NSA) (5G-enabled on current 4G network) and Stand Alone (SA) dedicated 5G network in Langkawi.
“SA is the future of the 5G network deployment and this demonstration is crucial to fast-track 5G implementation in the country.
“With the implementation of the SA network in Langkawi for the 5GDP, TM is the first telco that has deployed the first SA dedicated 5G network in the country and in the region.
“We are also proud to note that 5G speed tests conducted within TM’s 5G use cases sites have achieved up to 1.5 Gbps.
“I’m also pleased to update that TM is the first telco in the region to update our Radio Access Network (RAN) and devices with SA dedicated 5G network,” he said in a statement today.
He said for the 5GDP in Langkawi, the company has deployed the highest number of 5G use cases among the participating telcos, and all the 5G network and use cases sites can be monitored via the dashboard at the 5GCC, monitored by an expert and qualified technical team.
“It is also linked to the local authorities and emergency response services which allow for the communities as well as tourists to experience smarter, safer living.
“In addition, we open the 5GCC for all other service providers to deploy their monitoring dashboards so all relevant data can be centralised for collective insights,” he added.
Currently, the 5GCC houses the dashboard for the following use cases: Smart Traffic Light; Smart Parking; Smart Safety and Security Solutions; Langkawi Smart Tourism Dashboard; and Gerbang Langkawi Platform.
Backed up by analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things and data-driven insights, the 5GCC is furnished with advanced integrated security features to serve as a security monitoring centre through closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras being installed at hotspots on the island.
