Motorola Penang once again brushed off the pertinent question about its future in Malaysia after launching a new technology lab in Multimedia University (MMU) inside the latter’s campus in Cyberjaya last week.
Called the Wireless Broadband Technology Lab, the infrastructure is set up with the objective to providing a conducive and comfortable wireless network facility to MMU students, capitalizing on the latest WiMax operability.
Both indoor and outdoor premises will benefit from the wireless technology.
Motorola is also hoping to be able to transfer the knowledge and technology developed by their engineering team to the students and faculty members of MMU. The lab will be equipped with state-of-the-art wireless broadband equipment including access points and customer premises equipment (CPE) that will expose the users with an advanced wireless technology and enable them to discover new applications as well as developing new software.
According to the Managing Director of Motorola Penang, Yew Tian Tek, MMU was chosen since the two have been working in collaboration for more than 10 years, as well as the institution’s competency in providing innovative technology and groundbreaking research.
