KUALA LUMPUR, June 30 (Bernama) -- Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) and Cisco International Ltd has announced a strategic partnership to supercharge Malaysia’s ambitions in becoming a technology-driven nation and regional digital leader as part of Cisco’s Country Digital Acceleration (CDA) programme.
A joint statement by TM and Cisco today said both companies would join hands to co-invest in projects for 5G innovation and the digital acceleration of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) aimed at fostering greater inclusion and growth in Malaysia’s digital economy.
It said the two collaboration agreements are 5GaaS Innovation Platform, where Cisco and TM would build a 5G-as-a-service Centre of Excellence to springboard 5G adoption and develop proof of concepts for enterprises and vertical industries, and Accelerating Digital Transformation of SMEs to drive a joint digital solution seeding programme through a proof of concept for selected SME customers.
“TM’s partnership with Cisco focuses on three key pillars -- digital transformation in the public sector, specifically education, which will be launched at a later date; digital transformation for service providers, focusing on 5G innovation; and digital transformation for SMEs,” it said.
It said Cisco’s CDA programme is a strategic partnership with governments worldwide to accelerate their national digitalisation agendas and create new value for the country, businesses and citizens.
“The CDA programme in Malaysia was unveiled as a collaboration framework between Cisco and MyDigital Corporation in May 2022.
“It is aligned with MyDIGITAL, the government’s Digital Economy Blueprint, aimed at accelerating the growth of Malaysia’s digital economy, with a focus on driving digital transformation in the public sector, building digital infrastructure and cultivating agile and competent digital talent,” it said.
Cisco Asia Pacific, Japan and Greater China president Dave West said the CDA programme in Malaysia is focused on turning the country’s digital economy blueprint into reality by leading the development of core 5G technologies and infrastructure, accelerating the digital transformation of SMEs and nurturing a pipeline of next-generation IT talent.
“We are thrilled to embark on a new chapter of our collaboration with TM and the Malaysian government through our CDA programme and we’re excited about the opportunities ahead,” he added.
