Advanced Info Services (AIS), Thailand's largest mobile operator, has launched the AIS e-sports studio to support Thais training to compete at competitions around Southeast Asia.
Winners of competitions hosted by AIS will be able to practice e-sports at the studio. The studio brings together high-speed internet networks and equipment to support e-sports, primarily for training in preparation for the next regional competition.
Competitions hosted by AIS include the AIS e-sports Thailand Campus Championship 2020, a university challenge that uses the digital infrastructure of AIS 5G and AIS Fibre, with a maximum speed of 1,000/1,000 megabits per second.
AIS uses a caster and production zone with modern production techniques and full equipment to organise live events on high-speed internet networks for e-sports fans.
The company plans to organise two more e-sports tournaments this year beginning with AIS e-sports Thailand Campus Championship 2020 Season 2, and the AIS e-sports Thailand Open Championship for players of all levels.
