KUALA LUMPUR: Telekom Malaysia Bhd's innovation arm is exploring a collaboration with ZTE (Malaysia) Corp sdn Bhd on optical network research to bring 50Gbps bandwith to Malaysia.

In a statement, the telco said Telekom Research & Development Sdn Bhd and ZTE will jointly explore the capabilities of next-generation passive optical network (PON) acess technology, 50GPON, to support various application scenarios.

In addition, it said both entities will look into use cases that can deliver ultra-broadband access to the government, enterprise and consumers, as well as support the requirements of innovative services such as 5G, Cloud Virtual Reality (VR), industrial intelligent manufacturing for high bandwidth, low latency & jitter, and clock synchronisation.
