5G: putting in the nuts and bolts

5G: putting in the nuts and bolts. [Newspaper] (2021)


The rollout of 5G connectivity is in the spotlight at the moment as telecommunications companies, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and Digital Nasional Bhd (DNB) work out the kinks that come with deploying a single wholesale 5G network (SWN).

There is no doubt that 5G connectivity is important for the country’s development, as the leveraging of 5G networks will enable industrial innovation in the automotive, digital healthcare and agritech spaces, to name a few. This is also why many countries, including Malaysia, are accelerating their 5G adoption.

Prof Dr Tharek Abd Rahman, adjunct professor at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, tells Digital Edge that infrastructure is important for 5G rollout, specifically good fibre internet connectivity, which will be able to support 5G connectivity. He uses South Korea as an example, as it was one of the first to roll out 5G because it had good fibre connectivity nationwide.
