It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to TM R&D and to share what we do in the heart of Cyberjaya.
TM R&D is the innovation hub under the Telekom Malaysia (TM) group. Research & Development as a function has always had a strategic role in TM. TM R&D started as a division in the early 80's; and was later incorporated as a company in 2001. We strive to be the innovation and knowledge centre of excellence for TM, supporting the promise to make life and business easier for a better Malaysia.
Today, our focus is to increase the adoptability of our research work. Our research projects span across 3 horizons - solving the operational issues of today, developing on the next generation technologies for emerging businesses, and exploring breakthrough research to create new business opportunities for the future. We have established several successful joint collaboration projects with local and global technology leaders to accelerate the development and commercialisation of our home grown technologies and solutions.
We have an amazing team comprising of individuals with diverse set of backgrounds but with a distinct characteristic - they are sophisticated problem solvers, energetic and have a vibrant outlook on life. They are the catalysts that have made TM R&D the place to be.
Our work has started to gain global attention with Advance Internet Lighting Application (AILA) being crowned with the Chairman's Award at the World Information Technology Services Alliance (WITSA) Global ICT Excellence Awards, held in conjunction with the 2014 World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT) in Guadalajara, Mexico. In 2014, we have also won the Best Broadband Partnership Category for Green Collaboration on Optical Radio Network (G-Corn) at the Broadband Infovision Awards in Amsterdam. In the 2015 Broadband World Forum Awards held in London, our work on Time and Wavelength Division Multiplex Passive Optical Network (TWDM PON) has won the Best Broadband Partnership Category.
We anticipate exciting times ahead, as the industry embraces the next revolution on digital, hyperscale operations, the internet of everything (IoE), advanced analytics, and more.
If you are looking for a place to create, build, innovate and push your limits, then this is the place for you. We look forward to welcoming you into the family!
