Malaysia Gains Enhanced Mobile Broadband with SES Networks and CompuDyne

CompuDyne, a leading telecommunications solutions provider in Malaysia, is partnering with SES Networks to bring high quality and cost-effective cellular backhaul service to Malaysia and its surrounding islands.

SES announced that CompuDyne has signed a multi-year, multi-transponder agreement to lease Ku-band capacity on SES-9, SES’s largest satellite dedicated to serve Asia-Pacific, for its customer Digi, the country’s leading mobile network operator.

Making a shift from a C-band to Ku-band system, CompuDyne can now deliver more cost-effective and reliable satellite connectivity, enabling Digi to extend its cellular network to underserved consumers residing in rural areas and in the far reaches of Malaysia. At the same time, Digi also plans to use the capacity to introduce mobile broadband services and packages for an increasingly connected population.

“In the eastern and western parts of Malaysia, there is incredible growth in mobile broadband usage today from both business and consumers. Utilising Ku-band capacity on SES-9, our customers have the opportunity to tap into this rising demand and offer improved services and greater value for end-users,” said Dato’ Mohd Hanafiah A Jalil, Managing Director at CompuDyne.

“With SES-9’s high-powered and comprehensive Ku-band coverage over Malaysia, the satellite is ideal for providing cellular backhaul services,” said Imran Malik, Vice President, Fixed Data, Asia-Pacific at SES Networks.
