Telekom Malaysia Maxis

To strengthen the nation’s digital ecosystem through industry collaboration, Telekom Malaysia (TM) will access Maxis’ 4G Multi Operator Core Network (MOCN) infrastructure, as well as 4G and 2G Domestic Roaming Services (2G DR) to enhance mobile connectivity nationwide.

MOCN is a radio access network (RAN) sharing mechanism that allows different core networks to share the same RAN. Through this, TM will extend its 4G coverage across the country by leveraging Maxis’ RAN infrastructure and improving Unifi Mobile‘s population coverage to above 95%.

Maxis will provide approximately 6,800 sites for 4G MOCN and domestic roaming (DR) services and 10,000 sites for 2G DR, greatly benefiting all subscribers in rural and urban areas nationwide.

In a ceremony today at TM HQ in Cyberjaya, Maxis was represented by its Chief Executive Officer, Goh Seow Eng, while Datuk Imri Mokhtar, Group Chief Executive Officer represented TM.
