  • So even if the doctor is not physically with the patient, he or she can still aid in the diagnosis and treatment process.
  • Patients in remote or underserved areas will also be able to receive quality healthcare without having to travel the distance for it.

2) Multi 4K Streaming

Wong Heang Tuck, CEO of U Mobile, shared that participating in the 5G Malaysia Showcase is just the beginning for the telco. “U Mobile is investing in our infrastructure to power 5G technology. In fact, we have embarked on Proof of Concept (POC) projects in two verticals. In Education, we are speaking with universities to provide fixed wireless access to all their students. In Healthcare, we are collaborating with healthcare institutions to make teleconsultation a reality for their patients. So not only will 5G technology enable faster download speeds, lower latency and massive connectivity, it will drive other business verticals which will immensely improve the daily lives of Malaysians.”

Beyond the POC projects, U Mobile also recently signed collaborations with partners to kickstart its journey on the road to 5G. With Razer, U Mobile will conduct eSports-related 5G testbeds and trials that will bring gaming to the next level. With ZTE, the telco is pursuing various 5G developments, including the implementation of Massive MIMO in parts of Kuala Lumpur. On the healthcare front, U Mobile and Sun Life Malaysia will explore 5G trials on digital health use cases.
