KUALA LUMPUR, 30 December 2014 – UEM Sunrise Berhad (“UEM Sunrise”) through its wholly-owned subsidiary, UEM Land Berhad has entered into a collaboration agreement with edotco Malaysia Sdn Bhd (“edotco”), an integrated telecommunications infrastructure services company providing end-to-end solutions of towers, energy, transmission and operations & maintenance (“O&M”) for a multi-tenant mobile network infrastructure development in Nusajaya, Iskandar Malaysia, Johor. The collaboration agreement includes the joint identification by UEM Sunrise and edotco of potential sites in Nusajaya for communication towers and structures for mobile network operators (“MNO”), wireless service providers, radio and television broadcast companies and the construction of such communication towers and structures by edotco at its own costs.

This partnership between UEM Sunrise and edotco will encourage the development of mobile or cellular communication services as well as a multi-telco environment and is expected to reduce MNO towers in Nusajaya by at least 40%.  It will also provide a lower entry cost to MNO wishing to locate in Nusajaya in order to ensure mobile services are ready from day one to the residents and businesses there as well as boosts up the infra-readiness for 4G connectivity to cater for optimum coverage and progressive data traffic growth in Nusajaya.

Azhar Othman, Chief Financial Officer of UEM Sunrise says, “UEM Sunrise is pleased to collaborate with edotco as the new mobile network infrastructure and mobile network operators will further enhance the sustainability of Nusajaya, promoting more businesses and multi-national corporations in considering this Flagship Zone B of Iskandar Malaysia as a possible location to set up their headquarters. We hope to continue providing more facilities and amenities in Nusajaya to further enhance its appeal to potential business locators”.

Suresh Sidhu, edotco’s Group CEO added, “This cooperation affirms edotco’s drive to encourage network sharing and to reduce the overall environmental impact of tower infrastructures. With the support of the industry and a partner like UEM Sunrise, edotco will also focus on initiatives such as energy management technologies and innovative engineering to improve operational efficiencies and better serve our customers.”

The signing marks edotco as a preferred partner in delivering multi-tenant infrastructure solutions for all MNO in Nusajaya. edotco’s ability to  provide aesthetic infrastructures that blend into the environment and are smaller in size compared to traditional towers will also play a major role in ensuring space and ultimately, revenue optimisation.
