The National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan (NFCP) is a 5-year plan that aims to provide robust, pervasive, high quality, and affordable connectivity to all. U Mobile is fully supportive of this initiative and believes 5G will be a key enabler to that vision and hence, we have been conducting several use cases to demonstrate how 5G will help verticals like healthcare, education, tourism and manufacturing to advance.

5G Connectivity helps to change the healthcare landscape through U Mobile's collaboration with MEDCOM, a 5G enabled telemedicine device that acts as a secure gateway between patients and doctors. It seamlessly integrates and transmits high-definition data from various medical devices using 5G mobile connectivity to allow doctors to view real time, high quality and ultra-reliable clinical, physiological and diagnostic parameters to guid management and decision making from distance.

The DOCpod by DoctorOnCall powered with U Mobile's 5G connectivity enables patients living in areas that have no access to a qualified medical doctor access to face-to-face qualified medical advice.

Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) is available at a location that is fitted with a fixed wireless access router that receives 5G signal from a 5G telco tower. Once the signal is received, the router will be able to provide connectivity at 5G speed to all devices in the area, regardless of how many devices are conenected.

In remote areas, FWA enables network operators to deliver high speed internet to the people, wuthout having to lay and maintain fiber broadband.

5G will change travel experience for Malaysians who love to travel and are always looking for their next destination. Instead of reading sites or watching videos about the destination 5G will enable Virtual Tourism where one can experience their destination remotely. With Virtual Tourism, those who may not have the opportunity to travel will be able to have an immersive experience and not miss out on all the benefits travel has to offer.

Security and safety are of utmost importance in the manufacturing industry with thousands of staffs. Hence, U Mobile partnered with Huawei and Hotayi to install Smart AI Facial Recognition and Thermal Recognition Solution powered by 5G at the entrance of Hotayi’s manufacturing plant.

Leveraging on 5G’s high bandwidth, Smart AI Facial Recognition Solution is able to process multiple faces and authenticate against Hotayi’s database in real-time for security purposes; while Thermal Recognition Solution is able to detect the temperatures of up to 10 people at once, upload in the system and inform security of any abnormalities to prevent the potential of cross-infection. Thereby, tightening security and safety measures with greater efficiency.
