Advanced Info Service (AIS) is planning to launch its first 5G service for the business sector with commercial 5G fixed wireless access (AIS 5G FWA) as the first operator in Thailand.
The top mobile operator by subscriber numbers targets corporate customers, particularly to enhance flexibility in sending and receiving corporate data on a wireless network.
The features of 5G support multiple usage, including being an extension of network slicing innovation on 5G FWA. This technology holds the potential to design each layer of the network to be consistent and flexible to each type of usage in each area, making it able to ensure the quality of the connection and the speed.
5G FWA offers higher internet speeds to enhance the efficiency of enhanced mobile broadband, which can reach speeds greater than 4G with far lower latency, supporting high-bandwidth applications.
Yongsit Rojsrikul, chief enterprise business officer of AIS, said the company is committed to bringing 5G technology to bear in helping with the recovery of Thailand, especially in dealing with the coronavirus outbreak.
Several organisations need to adjust to a new strategic plan to be able to manage their organisations moving forward, Mr Yongsit said.
The 5G FWA multi-protocol label switching service uses technology to be a virtual private network. It features easy installation and easy relocation as a network allocation for organisations that use the service.
Furthermore, the service is suitable for personal networks that require sending data with high security.
