PETALING JAYA: Huawei Malaysia has joined in the country’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic by offering technological solutions to the government.

The tech giant contributed four solutions to the Health Ministry, including video conferencing, wireless network coverage, artificial intelligence (AI) and smartphones.

“Huawei’s Public Health Event Emergency Response Solution will enable health experts to work with frontline medical professionals to conduct remote online consultations, enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment, and ensure continuous communication in real-time between the government and public hospitals, ” the company said in a statement on Friday (April 10).

One component of this is the Huawei Telemedicine Video Conference, which provides secure and reliable connection for quarantine hospitals to enable real-time video conference with the Health Ministry.

It is based on the latest H.265 technology, and ensures a full HD video experience capable of operating even on limited bandwidth.

Another component is the Hospital Wireless Network Communication Solution, which provides wireless network coverage for hospitals, wards and emergency medical tents.

“With Huawei 5G-powered antenna and algorithm technologies, this wireless network communication can provide services with no waiting time and achieve no packet loss during roaming.

“This allows various users, including doctors in diagnostic rooms, nurses in wards, and epidemic emergency teams to utilise the high-speed network connection in their combat against Covid-19, ” it added.
