Chief Executive Officer Datuk Seri Shazalli Ramly said the network would be developed through its collaboration with Ericsson Malaysia Sdn Bhd and Huawei Technologies (M) Sdn Bhd as its main network infrastructure partners.

“We want to ensure the best network quality as demanded by our customers,” he said before the partnership signing ceremony yesterday.

Both partners would be responsible for the full turnkey supply and delivery of product, equipment, system, works and services for Celcom Radio Access Network.
