UKM Partners With Maxis To Provide Campus-Wide WiFi Access For Total Connectivity

schedule 11 Jan 2018

Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) and Maxis are collaborating to enable UKM’s 13 campuses nationwide to be connected via Maxis’ WiFi services.

The 30,000-strong UKM student community can enjoy an “Always-On” and “Worry Free” experience anytime, anywhere on the best 4G LTE network in the country. In addition to the WiFi in campus, selected UKM buses that ply the Bangi campus route have also been fitted with free WiFi on board to ensure that students in particular are also connected while on-the-go.

“UKM is very determined to produce a digital generation and now each employee and student is geared towards embracing the right ICT technologies in all activities such as research, teaching and learning as well as community and industry networks. This collaboration with Maxis certainly plays a key role in enhancing UKM's desire through engagement in the six areas of UKM's KRA to mold the new Malaysian generation in the digital era, said Prof Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Noor Azlan Ghazali, Vice Chancellor, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.

Shanti Jusnita Johari, Maxis’ Head of Enterprise Product said, “We are happy to be given this opportunity to collaborate with UKM and we feel that we are the right partner as we ourselves are going through digitalisation. At Maxis, we recognise that education is a critical sector where access to communications and advanced technology can play a vital role in driving excellence. By providing connectivity to the campus community, we are helping students and faculty members stay connected wherever they may be.”

This collaboration also extends to student development initiatives such as internship opportunities with Maxis, student entrepreneurship programmes, leadership talks by senior management of Maxis, among others.
