Digi on Thursday demonstrated its 5G network preparedness to members of the media, ahead of its debut at the 5G Malaysia Showcase happening from 18 to 21 April 2019.

An onsite speed test revealed faster data speed and greater network capacity—with transmission speeds hitting up to 1.6GBps on the 100MHz spectrum 5G network.

Digi’s efforts in 5G testing is in line with the industry’s move towards showcasing the next generation network’s benefits and key impacts.

Super high speed, low latency and network slicing capabilities will enable 5G to connect millions of devices, build new services, and support a broader adoption of applications that can impact businesses, governments and consumers.

At the upcoming showcase, Digi will present three 5G use cases in the areas of Emergency Services, Learning and eSports. The uses cases will demonstrate how 5G can assist to accelerate emergency response times in a road accident, learning through Augmented Reality (AR) and eSports through a Virtual Reality (VR) experience.

Telenor Research’s Head, Bjorn Taale Sandberg is also slated to share global insights on how 5G will enable Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT). He will also share insights from Telenor Group, which piloted 5G projects in Norway back in November 2018.

The 5G Malaysia Showcase, themed “5G Malaysia: Progressing Humanity (#5G Malaysia #ProgressingHumanity), is hosted by the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia, and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), in collaboration with leading communication companies and higher institutions of learning.

The event is open to public on 20 and 21 April at Kompleks Perbadanan Putrajaya.
