EdgePoint Infrastructure via EdgePoint Towers Sdn Bhd, has partnered with Sunway Group to upgrade the telecommunications infrastructure in Sunway City Kuala Lumpur.
The deployment will benefit Sunway Pyramid, the largest themed mega mall in the country, the adjoining Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre as well as the internationally recognised Sunway Medical Centre.
In the recently signed agreement, EdgePoint will be deploying refreshed neutral hosted In-building Coverage (IBC) systems at the mall and convention centre.
These next generation coverage systems, which are also 5G ready, will enable seamless mobile coverage throughout the mall, in line with the Group’s target to provide seamless connectivity towards catering to the annual footfall of 42 million coming through Sunway City Kuala Lumpur each year.
This agreement will also see similar IBC deployments across other Sunway-owned commercial properties.
The installation of the IBC systems and adoption of 5G network technology builds upon Sunway’s digital transformation journey since 2000. The Group’s digital arm is accelerating digital adoption across the conglomerate’s business divisions and further integrating technology into Sunway City Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s first integrated green city.
In addition to being a smart sustainability city, Sunway City Kuala Lumpur is also advancing the “15-minute city” model, where people can easily navigate essential services and business premises within a 15-minute walk or bike ride.
