Nokia to help improve Maxis' network security, reliability

KUALA LUMPUR: Maxis Bhd and Nokia will collaborate to improve network security and reliability.

The deepening collaboration between the two companies will see Nokia develop a segment of Maxis' 5G Core ecosystem to meet future connectivity needs.

The partnership was solidified during a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing at the Malaysia Pavilion of the Mobile World Congress 2024 in Barcelona, Spain with the presence of Communications Minister Fahmi Fadzil.

Maxis said it will work with Nokia on the adoption of advanced technologies aimed at enhancing the resilience and security of its networks.

"This includes quantum-safe optical networking that protects against threats by both classical and quantum computers. 

"In addition, both companies will explore innovation around facilitating efficient and scalable connectivity across cloud environments to bolster network security, with the strengthened security to also benefit enterprise customers," it added.

Maxis emphasised that these initiatives align with the increasing need for network infrastructure capable of facilitating strong connectivity and smooth cross-border data transfer, supported by enhanced security provided by optical data centres.

Maxis chief executive officer Goh Seow Eng said the collaboration extends the longstanding working relationship of both parties spanning two decades, marking a pioneering effort at the forefront of connectivity.

"As Malaysia's leading integrated telecommunications provider, we look forward to closer collaboration to innovate across our network ecosystem and 5G offerings. 

"This will ensure we are future-ready to meet customers' ever-increasing demands for fast, secure and reliable connectivity," said Goh.
