Ericsson and its partnership with Digital Nasional Bhd (DNB) on the 5G deployment, will contribute positively to the economy as the global telecommunication hardware vendor assures that local contractors will be engaged for the project.
Apart from knowledge transfer and skilling a new workforce on the workings of 5G, the project is expected to generate a new class of experts who would be valuable for the ecosystem moving forward.
Head of Ericsson Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh David Hagerbro claims Ericsson is deploying a world-class 5G end-to-end in the country leveraging on its global technology leadership and 5G deployment experience.
Once initiated, operators will be able to leverage advanced solutions like multi-operator core networks which use the 5G radio resource partitioning feature so that the radio access network could be shared by six operators at the same time. This will allow each operator to have their own core for differentiation.
According to the Swedish communication giant, The 5G network will be operated using largely local resources and the latest tools and artificial intelligence with the lowest cost per gigabyte in order for an affordable 5G experience.
