TTDI Ramadan Bazaar Offers Full Digital Payments!

Tech Hunter just launched a Ramadan Bazaar in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail (TTDI) called #TechMeToBazaar. The massive bazaar boasts over 150 stalls offering local delicacies, and expects to welcome over 200,000 visitors this year.

Thanks to Tech Hunter Global Sdn Bhd (“Tech Hunter”), visitors to the TTDI Ramadan Bazaar can make payments using a variety of digital modes, including debit or credit cards and e-wallets.

All stalls at the TTDI Ramadan Bazaar are fully equipped with payment terminals set up by PayHunter, a Tech Hunter subsidiary, so visitors can simply “wave” their debit or credit cards, or scan the QR codes to digitally transfer money using any e-wallet. Visitors no longer have to worry about bringing enough cash to pay for their buka puasa meals!

TTDI Ramadan Bazaar is also powered by SHOPLINE, a global Smart Commerce Enabler offering omnichannel commerce solutions. SHOPLINE recently integrated its POS system with Tech Hunter’s Smart Mobile Payment Terminal to allow retailers to easily place and checkout a customer’s order via a compact, wireless device – perfect for space-saving and mobile use at the bazaar!

Lastly, YTL Communications’ Yes is the telecommunications provider that powers the 5G connectivity throughout the entire bazaar.

“This Ramadan, we are proud to launch the first ever 5G Ramadan Bazaar, powered by Yes 5G as part of the Tech Me To Bazaar campaign,” said Wing K. Lee, Chief Executive Officer at YTL Communications. “In line with our ongoing mission to enable 5G for All, we are bringing 5G connectivity to one of the most engaged activities of the festive season. Through the Ramadan bazaar at TTDI, we are making 5G accessible for both vendors and customers alike to experience seamless connectivity, fast internet speeds and ultra-low latency through Yes 5G. We welcome all to our Yes booths located within the bazaar, to kickstart their 5G experience powered by Yes”.

Industrial Revolution 4.0 – Turbocharging Malaysia’s Journey!

YES sponsored an expert panel discussion on turbocharging Malaysia’s journey towards Industrial Revolution 4.0, as part of Malaysia Tech Week 2019.

Hear from industry leaders like Microsoft, Qualcomm, NEC, DXC and YTL on what they are doing to accelerate Malaysia towards IR 4.0!


What Is Industrial Revolution 4.0?

Industrial Revolution 4.0, also known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0, is a term that is applied towards the current trend of intelligent automation that is enabled by information technology, interconnectivity and data analytics.


Industry 4.0 employs a wide range of technologies to achieve those aims, such as mobile devices, Internet of Things, smart sensors, big data analytics, augmented reality, cloud computing, and more.

Countries and corporations that successfully make use of these technologies will greatly improve their productivity. Hence, there is great interest by governments and companies to develop and accelerate their IR 4.0 capabilities.


Industrial Revolution 4.0 – Turbocharging Malaysia’s Journey!

Before the expert panel discussion kicked off, let’s get a short update on Industrial Revolution 4.0 from MDEC COO Dato’ Ng Wan Peng, Managing Director of Boston Consulting Group Ong Ching-Fong, and Wing K. Lee, CEO of YTL Communications.


Industrial Revolution 4.0 Panel Discussion

Joining Wing K. Lee for the expert panel on IR 4.0 were industry leaders from Microsoft, Qualcomm, NEC and DXC :

  • ST Liew, President of Qualcomm Taiwan and Southeast Asia
  • Datin Lim Bee Wah, Enterprise Commercial Lead, Microsoft Malaysia
  • Chong Kai Wooi, Managing Director, NEC Malaysia

OpenSignal : YES Has Best 4G LTE Speed & Availability!

In their 2017 year-end report, OpenSignal has named YES as the mobile service provider with the fastest overall download speed, and the best 4G LTE signal availability across Malaysia. This is a big win for YES, which was only launched in 2010 as a digital-only mobile service provider.


YES Has Best 4G LTE Speed & Availability

The OpenSignal report was based on more than a billion data points that were crowdsourced from over 75,000 real world smartphone users in Malaysia. This makes it arguably the most accurate and authoritative reports to date. Only YES and Maxis were recognised as leaders by OpenSignal in that report.

According to OpenSignal, YES customers were able to connect to the 4G LTE signal 93.2% of the time – a whopping 13 points ahead of their nearest competitor. The other four competitors did not even break the 75% mark!

Although YES did not win the award for the fastest 4G download speed, they won the award for the overall download speed. With an average download speed of 19.3 Mbps, they are far ahead of their competitors, and the global average of 16.6 Mbps.

The OpenSignal recognition comes after YES bagged the “Most Innovative Voice Service” from the Telecom Asia Awards 2017, for being the first in Malaysia to provide nationwide VoLTE service, and “demonstrating outstanding leadership in 4G LTE technology innovation”.

Live Demonstration Of YES 4G+ (LTE Advanced) Performance

The CEO of YTL Communications, Wing K. Lee, was justly proud of this achievement as YES launched their 4G LTE and VoLTE (Voice over LTE) service nationally just 15 months ago. He pointed out that the YES network now supports 4G+ across the nation.

Also known as LTE Advanced, 4G+ supports Carrier Aggregation (CA), which is the ability to combine multiple carriers or channels for much faster download speeds. He demonstrated that capability live in this video using the Samsung Galaxy Note8.

As you can see, the YES 4G+ network is capable of delivering blistering download speeds of 125 Mbps, thanks to carrier aggregation. This 4G+ capability solidifies the YES network’s claim to be the best 4G network, bar none.
