KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian-based integrated telecommunications infrastructure services company edotco Group Sdn Bhd is collaborating with New York-listed Intelsat SA to advance connectivity capabilities across edotco’s footprint in South and South-East Asia through pioneering industry solutions.
In a statement, edotco said that under the collaboration, they planned to combine their core expertise in satellite and terrestrial backhaul to offer an improved and more holistic service as a means to deploy a better rural solution, solve backhaul issues and expand edotco’s remote site monitoring and surveillance.
“The need to narrow the connectivity gap is even more crucial now as we move towards the adoption of 5G, Internet of Things (IoT) and smart cities, ” edotco chief executive officer Suresh Sidhu said.
He pointed out that improving connectivity in rural and remote areas has become a key priority for mobile network operators (MNOs).
“Working with Intelsat will allow us to bundle satellite backhaul into our existing offerings, helping operators extend their services to hard-to-reach areas. This collaboration will present MNOs with a new generation of network services, ” he said in the statement.
Meanwhile, Intelsat regional vice-president, Asia Pacific, Terry Bleakley said by collaborating with tower providers like edotco, both companies could use their expertise to expand infrastructure that connected more people and delivered more services. — Bernama
