Pilot Deployment of Radio over Fibre (RoF) Technology

A Malaysian made broadband connectivity technology is being piloted in Taman Semenyih Permai and Bandar Tasik Kesuma. The previously underserved community of 24 users are currently enjoying triple play broadband (data, voice and video) services. The successful Fiberhome collaboration starting with a Joint Innovation Lab in 2014, also won the Best Broadband Partnership Award at the 2014  Broadband Infovision Awards in Amsterdam. The innovative RoF technology enables longer reach and faster deployment of TM’s network in areas that are beyond traditional connectivity coverage.
