KUALA LUMPUR – 27 Nov 2008

YTL e-Solutions Berhad (YTLE), a subsidiary of YTL Corporation Berhad, today signed a strategic collaboration agreement with Cisco Systems (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Cisco) to establish its WiMAX CORE network in Peninsular Malaysia.

Under the agreement, Cisco will build and integrate YTLE’s WiMAX CORE network which includes IP CORE, Operating Support Systems, Billing Systems, Proactive Network Operating Centre (PNOC), and IOT labs. The business relationship is in line with YTLE’s goal to provide mobile internet services nationwide

“We have chosen Cisco because of its proven expertise and leadership globally in IP CORE network technology and experience in setting up PNOC. We need a technology partner that can enable a fast and efficient WiMAX CORE Network establishment. Cisco has proven it with their innovative and leading-edge IP Technology solution” said YBhg. Tan Sri (Dr) Francis Yeoh, Executive Chairman and Managing Director, YTL e-Solutions Berhad.

 

“Together with Cisco, YTLE will create a WiMAX centre of excellence in Malaysia to become a world destination for WiMAX technology development.” Tan Sri Francis added, “I encourage all of you to start imagining the soon-reality of Mobile Internet Anywhere, Anytime and Anyhow.”

 

According to Wim Elfrink, Executive Vice President, Cisco Services & Chief Globalization Officer, “This project model is a first for Cisco around the world, and exemplifies how Cisco is evolving its business models to accelerate customer innovation and momentum.”

 

YTLE plans to deliver affordable WiMAX packages with fast, wide coverage and always-connected mobile internet services that will cater to and complement the personal and business communication needs of consumers as well as the enterprise community.

 

Upon the nationwide commercial service launch in 2009, Malaysians in both urban and rural areas will be able to simultaneously enjoy converged services - mobile voice, data and video with full mobility using personal WiMAX mobile devices over the YTLE’s WiMAX network.

Speech by Tan Sri (Dr) Francis Yeoh CBE

 

  • Mr. Wim Elfrink, EVP of Cisco Services & Chief Globalization Officer
  • Honourable Guests
  • Members of the Media
  • Ladies and Gentlemen

 

In June of this year, YTL e-Solutions Berhad signed a strategic collaboration agreement with XOHM, a broadband business unit of Sprint Nextel. XOHM will bring its global expertise to Malaysia and support us in setting up our WiMAX ecosystem.

 

As you are fully aware, XOHM successfully launched its own WiMAX commercial service in Baltimore. The September 2008 launch has already created waves in the US, particularly for its excellent internet connectivity within Baltimore. XOHM is turning a promise into reality that we will soon have “Mobile Internet Anywhere, Anytime and Anyhow”.

 

XOHM’s network coverage will soon be extended to other major cities in the USA.

 

It is my pleasure to inform you, we are here today to witness another strategic collaboration agreement with a global leader within the Industry. Cisco will be supporting us in establishing our WiMAX CORE network in Malaysia which includes the components of IP CORE, Operating Support Systems, Billing Systems, IOT labs, and the design and operation of a state-of-the-art Proactive Network Operating Centre (PNOC).

 

Together with Cisco, we will realize our vision to create a WiMAX Centre of Excellence in Malaysia as well as to become a world destination for WiMAX technology development.

 

Cisco has proven expertise and leadership globally in IP CORE network technology. We need a reliable technology partner that can implement a fast and efficient WiMAX CORE network nationwide. I am most confident that Cisco can deliver this, especially with its innovative and leading-edge IP technology solutions.

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are building a nationwide WiMAX network that will provide extensive service coverage, which we will be launching next year. We would like you to start imagining the soon-reality of “Mobile Internet Anywhere, Anytime and Anyhow”. YTLe will bring to you that reality.

 

YTLe will deliver affordable WiMAX packages with fast, wide-coverage, and always-connected mobile internet services that will cater to and complement the personal and business communications needs of consumers from all walks of life as well as the enterprise community.

 

Upon the full commercial launch of our network, Malaysians will be able to enjoy converged services: Mobile Voice, Data, and Video with full Mobility, all from the convenience of their personal mobile WiMAX devices, anywhere, anytime, anyhow.

 

After all, YTL Group’s business philosophy has always been ‘World Class Products and Services at Very Competitive Prices’

 

We firmly believe that our strong partnership with globally known business partners like CISCO will greatly spearhead our WiMAX initiative.

 

I am confident that together, we will be the driving force behind the Malaysian Government’s effort to increase the broadband penetration rate, as well as to bridge the digital divide in Malaysia.

 

I thank the Lord for this wonderful opportunity to be a pioneer in this new age of Mobile Internet. I pray that the Lord will richly bless our collaboration.

 

Thank you and God bless all of you.
