In conjunction with the Network Technology Day on 30 April 2019, Celcom Axiata Berhad recently deployed 5G services at its headquarters named “@celcom” in Petaling Jaya Sentral.
DRIVING 5G innovation and showing a glimpse of the future Network at @celcom’s ‘5G Innovation Hub’, several 5G applications were showcased in collaboration of Huawei Technologies (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd. These innovations will also inspire and benefit many households and premises in the future.
During the launch of the showcase, two units of the latest 5G handsets were specially brought in from Shenzen, China, and were used for a one-minute crystal clear voice quality, 5G call between Celcom’s Chief Executive Officer, Idham Nawawi and Celcom’s Chief Network Officer, Yap Chee Sun.
Another 5G innovation that was demonstrated was the 5G facial recognition application for turnstile access control, which was connected to a database server via 5G. The face to facial recognition application delivered a real-time intelligent response, when registering various facial readings in the server.
Throughout the showcase, most of the used cases and innovations were demonstrated using 5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) such as real-time Virtual Reality, 5G face to facial recognition application and 360 degrees live video feed.
The showcase also included booths which provided information, demonstrations and hands-on activities by Celcom’s Network team, which provided other Celcom employees a better understanding of the technologies and solutions behind 5G.
