Malaysia, the third largest economy in Southeast Asia, is facing a substantial increase in networking traffic. With a high density of knowledge-based industries and an aggressive adoption of cutting-edge technology, capacity demand and bandwidth allocation are also growing exponentially.
New markets are emerging, existing markets are expanding, and digital inclusion initiatives driven by the government are forming.
To manage these growing demands, mobile network operators (MNOs), Telcos, Internet service providers (ISPs) and Enterprises across Malaysia are facing several challenges. New 4G sites and substantial upgrades to existing 3G sites and underlying networks will be required. Operators will also have to overcome network expansion challenges related to geography and network infrastructure, particularly in the mountainous regions in Sabah and vast areas of Sarawak, making it either physically impossible or economically infeasible to provide communication services using fibre and microwave.
Overcoming these challenges and enabling the adoption of more data-intensive cloud-centric applications will present tremendous growth opportunities for operators—and enterprises— throughout Malaysia.
Connectivity opportunities in Malaysia
Population: 32 million; 6.4 million living in underserved East Malaysia
Digital Inclusion Initiative: 30Mbps broadband service available in 98% of populated areas by 2023
Digitalisation Growth Forecasts:
Enterprise: Energy and Agriculture expanding to other sectors
Small/Medium Enterprises: Growing to one million in 2021
Smart Community: Aggressive IoT VSAT in-service units growth driven by utilities market
