Demo booths featured interactive applications of this technology, such as low-latency live streaming of various Kuala Lumpur city center views and 3D live content streaming, as well as immersive augmented reality (AR) experiences.

Maxis noted the capabilities of 5G Advanced as being essential in supporting digitalization, automation, and the Internet of Things (IoT) across several sectors. Maxis highlighted these advanced capabilities can aid the digital upgrade of industries, including high-end manufacturing, automotive, and smart transportation, as well as state-of-the-art visual communication through 3D and extended reality (XR) applications. In addition, 5G-Advanced will facilitate affordable IoT solutions development; added the carrier.

Next-gen connectivity solutions

Malaysia had previously indicated it would transition to dual 5G networks once DNB achieved 80% coverage across populated areas – something it accomplished before year-end.

All telcos in Malaysia currently provide 5G services using DNB’s network infrastructure.

Malaysia’s government recently confirmed that a special committee charged with overseeing 5G deployment was working towards producing a Cabinet memorandum soon to decide if additional 5G networks are acceptable in Malaysia.
