edotco Hands Over 113 Towers In JENDELA Implementation

edotco Malaysia today announced the handing over of 113 new telecommunications infrastructure for the Phase 1 of the Jalinan Digital Negara (JENDELA). The new infrastructure to support connectivity were erected across seven states in Kedah, Kelantan, Perak, Pahang, Negeri Sembilan, Johor, and Sabah.

The JENDELA project, driven by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission, aims to help mobile network operators expand and expedite mobile coverage availability in underserved rural areas. To accelerate the implementation, edotco Malaysia commenced the tower installations in February 2020 simultaneously in all seven states. The tower installation includes radio equipment and other ancillaries at all 113 sites.

“edotco Malaysia’s understanding of the project requirements and our track record in pioneering trailblazing projects, made us an ideal partner for MCMC in deploying cost-effective solutions that support the Malaysia Digital Economy Blueprint (MyDIGITAL).

“We are privileged to play a part in the JENDELA project and lend our expertise to realising its goals. edotco Malaysia is committed to helping the nation achieve its digital ambitions by providing the right shareable next-generation infrastructure to support the next phase of growth,” edotco Malaysia’s Managing Director, Wan Zainal Adileen says.

The telecommunications infrastructure bridges the digital divide by enabling public cellular services in areas with limited or no coverage. It contributes towards the goal of empowering the local community with equal opportunities to access socioeconomic benefits. The project supports the national aspiration to transform Malaysia into a digitally-enabled and technology-driven high-income nation and a regional leader in the digital economy.

In total, Phase 1 of the JENDELA project encompasses 152 sites in eight states including Johor, Kedah, Kelantan, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Perak, Terengganu and Sabah.
