Huawei’s strength in Communications and IT, combined with I-Berhad’s property development experience is a recipe for success.  This alliance creates opportunities to provide innovative business models and sets a new standard in Asia for the way smart homes will be implemented; from intelligent energy delivery, to forming building codes.  More connected homes will offer a safer environment for dwellers.

Lim Chee Siong, Chief Marketing Officer, Huawei Southern Pacific Region, explains, “As leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, Huawei aims to enhance and enrich peoples’ lives through technology advancement.”

“Technology plays an integral part in our lives, touching almost every aspect, from our homes to our workplaces, and reaching out to the whole communitieS,” he goes on to say. “For the past 15 years, Huawei has been focusing on improving the ICT infrastructure and development of smart cities in Malaysia.”

Looking to Malaysia’s future

According to Siong, Huawei wants to ensure that the Malaysian intelligent home experience is a comfortable and safe one, where families are entertained and economically protected. It just makes sense that as Malaysia celebrates 15 years of continuous innovation, the next steps are taken for consumer transformation.

There is a lengthy process for deploying a smart home, and a critical one is the creation of a large and reliable communications network layer that uses a cloud based IoT platform, referred to as the Foundation. As the intelligent home market develops, this foundation will open the door to other smart city features, such as smart street lighting and traffic management that will help make Malaysian cities smarter and a better place for families living there.
