State-owned fixed network operator, Telekom Malaysia(TM) has entered into a Next Generation Business Collaboration with  Axiata Group's infrastructure unit, edotco Malaysia to provide TM’s next generation services to mobile operators for the expansion of LTE services.

Under the collaboration, TM which owns Webe, will provide its Next Generation Backhaul (NGBH) services for the connectivity between mobile operator’s cell sites and their core network at edotco’s identified ground-based tower sites in selected areas.

TM and edotco Malaysia will also explore opportunities to provide common infrastructure via Smart Centralised Radio Access Network (Smart CRAN) Services allowing mobile operators to expand footprint of mobile coverage leveraging on the strength of a capable local partner in identified dense urban areas. 

Earlier this year, TM deployed its Smart CRAN solutions to provide common infrastructure and Base Transceiver Station (BTS) node for operators in Putrajaya, while edotco has launched its BTS Hotel services in Cyberjaya.

This collaboration will facilitate the expansion of the next generation service offering, rolling out the ideal solution for a township that emphasises skyline harmonisation for space-constrained areas while promoting shared infrastructure.
