Ericsson Malaysia Launches 5G Network Operations Center

By Luke Bellos

Global IT networking and telecom leader Ericsson recently revealed the formation of a new Network Operation Center (NOC) in Malaysia, which will support Digital Nasional Berhad’s 5G network.

Ericsson intends to utilize the NOC to oversee 5G network activity as part of DNB’s managed services plan, in order to provide regional citizens and businesses with the reliable 5G coverage needed to thrive in the increasingly connected world. Additionally, the launch of the NOC has created new employment opportunities for Malaysian workers, allowing the country to continue toward becoming a global technological hub.

“Powered by the Ericsson Operations Engine, the Ericsson NOC is capable of maintaining the most complex and large-scale 5G networks round the clock and will serve as an assurance to the MNOs using the DNB 5G network regarding the performance and health of the DNB network. Setting up the NOC in Malaysia has also opened the opportunity for more Malaysians to be hired and acquire skills in the latest technologies.”

With remote and hybrid access now being essential to business functionality, the timing for 5G’s recent introduction couldn’t be more perfect. However, this surge in online activity is causing security concerns and networking problems to rise, creating a need for better management beyond human capabilities. Thanks to Ericsson’s Operations Engine, the DNB can easily thwart the most common 5G networking problems with the help of automation, advanced AI, and deep analytical insights.

“The dedicated DNB 5G NOC is an example of our commitment to deliver a cost-efficient, world class 5G experience for the people and businesses of Malaysia. The NOC will support the national 5G infrastructure by providing proactive, fast detection and isolation of network faults, monitor security events or threats and reduce response and rectification time.”
