Celcom + Maxis : First 5G Network Sharing Trial Succeeds!

Celcom and Maxis conducted Southeast Asia’s first 5G Multi Operator Core Network (MOCN) trial in December 2019, following the MoU agreement on 25 November 2019.

It utilised the Maxis 5G site at Seaview Hotel in Kuah, and the Celcom 5G site at The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa, testing their capability to support both Maxis and Celcom users.

MOCN is a sharing mechanism that allows two different core networks to share the same RAN (Radio Active Network).

Using MOCN allows Celcom and Maxis to quickly extend their 5G coverage across Langkawi, just by leveraging their existing 5G sites.
