Maxis sets up A.I. network to support 5G technology
In 2020, worldwide 5G wireless network infrastructure revenue will reach $4.2bn, an 89% increase from 2019 revenue of $2.2bn, according to predictions from Gartner, a global research and advisory firm.
Moreover, Gartner forecasts that investments in 5G network infrastructure will account for 6% of the total wireless infrastructure revenue of communications service providers (CSPs) in 2019, and that this figure will reach 12% in 2020.
Maxis has been at the forefront when it comes to staying on track with the latest technology developments, and recently the company has been creating an advanced and intelligent network, dubbed the A.I. Network, which is ready to support 5G speeds, resilience and latency demands.
The A.I. network was developed with Maxis’ in-house capabilities and is built upon a 5G-ready infrastructure with the widest fibre-optic footprint to mobile base stations across the country.
Furthermore, the network was built on Next-Gen IP network architecture and the latest software-defined networking technology. The network itself self-optimises data traffic along the most efficient routes and even self-heals by anticipating and rerouting traffic around potentially problematic areas.
Consequently, this will lead to a more seamless and lag-free internet experience and ‘Always On’ connectivity for mission-critical business applications.
“At this exciting juncture for Malaysia, where demands for digital services, content and connectivity is at unprecedented levels, we are once again staying ahead to ensure that we are ready for the future. A highly resilient, agile and ready-to-scale network is particularly important for our growing suite of enterprise solutions that address the mission-critical requirements of our customers,” said Maxis Chief Technology Officer Morten Bangsgaard.
There are some examples of how the Maxis A.I. Network has helped with certain systems. The said network is able to anticipate potential usage spikes and open up more bandwidth in preparation for it.
Other than that, the network will provide strong support for Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technology built with 5G-like capabilities and designed for mass-scale industrial deployments for enterprise and government.
Besides that, it can provide precise analysis in the event of a network outage for individual customers, leading to better first call resolution. On top of that, it can alert enterprise customers on performance updates within five minutes, making it possible for earlier business contingency planning.
In addition, the network health dashboard app also helps Maxis service managers to work remotely to troubleshoot issues and identify solutions for enterprise customers.
Morten said, “And with 5G and fibre expected to be at the heart of our evolving digital lifestyles, a highly intelligent network will work hard for us so that we can focus on providing the best possible customer experience. Our own-built A.I. Network is also a testament to our focus on building our capabilities and encouraging our talents to be a big part of this exciting journey.”
In conclusion, the Maxis A.I. Network has contributed positively to many different systems, which will help pave the way for Malaysia to become a smart city in the near future.
