EDOTCO Malaysia Sdn Bhd, today, entered into a seven-year mobile infrastructure collaboration with Sunway Digital Wave Sdn Bhd. A business unit of Sunway Technology Group, Sunway Digital Wave manages various telecommunication and information technology requirements for the Sunway Group.
edotco Malaysia will design, build and manage the telecommunications infrastructure for Sunway Digital Wave. The mobile telecommunication infrastructure will then be deployed in Sunway Group’s integrated townships nationwide, including Sunway Group’s commercial buildings, medical centres, universities and shopping malls.
The commercial developments of Sunway Geo, Sunway Pyramid, Sunway Putra and Sunway Velocity will be the first few sites to be fitted with the updated solutions. Other Sunway developments and townships will see similar installations in phases across seven years.
Among the innovative technologies that will be deployed are a network of antennas for in-building solutions (IBS), small cells, and multi-tenant BTS (Base Transceiver Stations) Hotels which will enable mobile operators to rapidly increase their capacity.
The telecommunications infrastructure will have camouflage elements that will help it integrate seamlessly into its surroundings. Coverage will be improved as more devices can connect to the network at greater data speeds.

Both companies have a shared vision of advancing connectivity in this age of digitalisation and understand the importance of adopting next generation technologies.

I am confident this will be a fruitful relationship that will ultimately benefit the end users as well as serve as a benchmark for other players in the property industry.”
Sunway Digital Wave chief executive officer Anandan Balakrishnan remarked, “Mobile infrastructure readiness is crucial to ensuring that the various Sunway business units remain connected. Digital connectivity is crucial in this era, and end-to-end capabilities are key to enabling Sunway’s diversified business units provide next generation solutions.
