“There is an immense amount of opportunities for NB-IoT especially around big data analytics and in enabling real life use cases.

The launch will encourage the development of an ecosystem of partners, developers and customers that will offer even more opportunities for enterprises, to better manage and optimise their assets, their environment, their energy usage and the safety of their people, and to unlock the potential for the delivery of new services in the Malaysian market.
