28 August, 2009, Kuala Lumpur - Green Packet Berhad (Green Packet), a leading developer of next generation mobile broadband and networking solutions, announced today the release of a new case study detailing its integral role in the successful rollout of WiMAX in Malaysia by Packet One Networks (P1).
In August 2008, P1 rolled out Malaysia's and Southeast Asia's first large scale 802.16e 2.3GHz commercial WiMAX deployment. In just twelve short months it has acquired over 80,000 subscribers and is maintaining a respectable ARPU (Average Revenue per User) of above US$26 (RM93).
P1 attributes part of its success to the technology and R&D strength of its partner, Green Packet, who supplied a host of stylish and user-friendly plug-and-play fixed and mobile devices and connectivity solutions.
The case study explains how Green Packet rose to the challenge to provide products and solutions which not only accelerated P1's launch preparedness but continues to help it gain traction in the marketplace.
Some of the highlights include:
- Best-in-class WiMAX Modems with high aesthetic value
- Connectivity solutions that improve the subscriber's experience
- Over-the-air update mechanisms
- Dynamic coverage information assisting sales growth initiatives
"The P1 case study illustrates the strength of our technology and R&D and our ability to provide world-class products and solutions to fit our clients' needs," said Kelvin Lee, Senior General Manager of Green Packet. "We are also very proud of the fact that these are delivered with the highest level of customer service."
Michael Lai, P1's CEO advocates the importance of WiMAX DNA (Device, Network, and Applications). "We were one of only four companies to acquire WiMAX licenses in Malaysia and it was our aim to be the first to launch. When we were setting up, WiMAX devices on the 2.3GHz spectrum band were practically non-existent. However, we had the advantage to leverage on Green Packet's technology and R&D strength as it was already supplying wireless connectivity products and solutions for the international market. Barely 17 months into operations, P1 launched commercial services with the go-to-market brand of P1 W1MAX and the competition was nowhere in sight!"
