Sunway Bhd (Sunway), Celcom Axiata Bhd (Celcom) and Huawei Technologies (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Huawei) yesterday sealed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to explore Malaysia’s first tripartite collaboration towards advancing smart township solutions encompassing Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), with fifth-generation (5G) connectivity.

The MoU aims to explore the potential for Celcom and Huawei to be the 5G technology enabler for Sunway Group. Sunway City in Selangor will be the “launch pad” of this ground-breaking partnership.

All three parties will explore the possibility to facilitate and support one another within the digital ecosystem to promote technological adoption to enrich people’s lives.

The proposed collaboration will see the development of smart solutions in the areas of public safety and security, telehealth, e-learning, hospitality, leisure and retail experience using the latest telecommunications technology as they become available for Sunway City Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s model smart sustainable city, as well as other existing and upcoming developments of Sunway. The tripartite collaboration will also contribute towards achieving sustainable development. 

As 5G will drive optimum adoption of IR4.0 solutions for smart township,the three parties involved will potentially develop an architectural design, use cases and deploy projects for Sunway City.

“We are proud to partner with Celcom, as the leading telco with widest network coverage in the country, and Huawei, one of the global leaders in 5G applications, on this first-of-a-kind tripartite partnership to advance 5G technology for Sunway City, Selangor,” said Chew Chee Kin, president of Sunway Group.
