Ericsson and Digital Nasional Berhad win at Glotel Awards in the “Best Vendor 5G Innovation” category for Malaysia’s 5G network
Malaysia’s 5G network has received another award, this time at the prestigious Glotel Awards that recognizes innovation and excellence when it comes to advancing and transforming telecommunications.
Ericsson’s joint submission with Digital Nasional Berhad (DNB) won the ‘Best Vendor 5G Innovation’ category, which goes to the telecoms companies that have developed the best new technology or service that raises the bar for 5G while demonstrating a significant contribution to the advancement of 5G on the whole.
The award-winning entry was for ‘Multi-Operator Core Network and Dynamic Resource Partitioning for the National Wholesale 5G Network’.
“It is testimony to the technology and innovations that are being incorporated into the network that Ericsson is delivering for DNB, which will be the backbone for Malaysia’s digital transformation,” said, Head of Ericsson Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh David Hägerbro.
“Ericsson’s first-in-the-world application of our Dynamic Radio Resource Partitioning technology on DNB’s 5G Network is just one example of our commitment to providing a world-class 5G network to Malaysia.”
DNB’s 5G network is the first commercial network in the world to apply Dynamic Radio Resource Partitioning (DRP), a 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) Slicing solution from Ericsson.
This technology solution enables six telecommunications operators on DNB’s shared network to deliver customized 5G services with guaranteed performance as each has access to the full spectrum asset.
It allows them to achieve the best possible speed, while simultaneously ensuring the pooled spectrum is efficiently used and maximized in order to ensure a good end-user experience.
RAN Slicing also gives the telcos the differentiation and guaranteed performance needed to monetize 5G investments with diverse use cases, which drives value for the network with 5G as an innovation platform.
Ericsson’s first-in-the-world application of our Dynamic Radio Resource Partitioning technology on DNB’s 5G Network is just one example of Ericsson’s our commitment to providing a world-class 5G network to Malaysia.
The DRP technology complements the Multi-Operator Core Network (MOCN) that is also used on DNB’s 5G network that allows operators to share radio resources fairly during busy hours.
Ericsson introduced its world first MOCN functionality into the network last year that allows each of the MNOs to access 5G Radio Access Network with their own core network. With each MNO owning their respective Core Network and user database, they can differentiate their offerings for customers.
Malaysia can expect to have a world class 5G network and what this means is accelerating the digital transformation and becoming an attractive destination for foreign investment where secure and robust connectivity is required for operations and manufacturing.
For consumers, 5G will enhance their digital lifestyle in areas such as gaming, healthcare and education while enterprises will be able to rely on business critical use cases in areas such as mining, logistics and agriculture.
“We’re looking forward to achieving more technological milestones in partnership with DNB for the benefit of Malaysia” states David Hagerbro.
