Malaysia partners with Ericsson, Intel for digital projects

Malaysia’s special purpose company for 5G deployment Digital Nasional Berhad (DNB) partnered with Ericsson to boost digitalisation in the country, with microchip giant Intel also involved. 

Ericsson said in a statement the agreement was formalised in a series of memorandums of understanding. 

Intel’s role in the agreement will be as a technology partner to collaborate for the development of 5G use cases and spur adoption of it by enterprises. 

Ericsson and DNB will work with Swedish manufacturer Scania, vehicle automation software provider eMoovit and bearing specialist SKF Malaysia. They will develop solutions, innovations and capabilities based on 5G connectivity to address challenges in the digital journey of enterprises. 

Ericsson Head of Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, David Hägerbro said: “The digital infrastructure that the 5G network has enabled in Malaysia makes doing business in the country more competitive and attractive for foreign investors.”

DNB Chief Strategy Officer Datuk Ahmad Zaki Zahid added: “Due to the world-class 5G network that we have today, Malaysia is in a very unique position to accelerate its digitalisation. The network already covers more than 80% of the population and has one of the best experiential and consistent performances in the world.”
