Telekom Malaysia (TM) has signed Memorandums of Collaboration (MoCs) with the Langkawi Municipal Council, the City of Tourism, and Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) to deploy 5G-enabled use cases as part of the 5G Demonstration Projects. With this collaboration, TM along with its enterprise and public sector business solutions arm – TM One, and its research and development arm – TM R&D, will deploy a total of five Smart City use cases with the municipal council. The 5G use cases aim to create a more convenient and safer environment for locals and tourists at the duty free island.
The use cases by TM ONE include Smart Traffic Light Solution, Smart Parking Solution, Smart Safety and Security Solution. Meanwhile, TM R&D will be setting up a 5G-enabled digital signage at Dataran Cenang that will stream 8K ultra high definition content from the cloud.
