  • Maxis to provide 4G and 5G network connectivity solutions for connected vehicles and EV charge points in Malaysia
  • Innovative digital solutions to accelerate new EV technologies
  • Collaboration announced at E-Mobility Asia, with Maxis as the official smart mobility solution provider

Maxis is collaborating with Blueshark, a leading smart scooter provider, and EV Connection Sdn. Bhd. (EVC), operator of the JomCharge charging network, to accelerate the adoption of e-mobility solutions.

To kick off the collaboration, a document exchange ceremony was held in conjunction with the E-Mobility Asia (EMA) 2023 exhibition, with Maxis inking Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with Blueshark and EVC respectively. Maxis is the official smart mobility solution provider for the inaugural EMA, which is being held in Kuala Lumpur from 22 to 24 November.

The ceremony was witnessed by YB Senator Tengku Datuk Seri Utama Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz, Minister of Investment, Trade & Industry, Malaysia.

As part of the MoUs, Maxis will provide 4G and 5G network connectivity solutions to Blueshark and EVC to support the e-mobility needs of their electric vehicle (EV) assets and infrastructure.

Maxis will also explore innovative digital solutions with both parties to accelerate the application of new technologies within the EV ecosystem. As a start, Maxis will develop an ESG dashboard to help Blueshark customers measure and analyse their carbon footprint through their electric scooters.

The dashboard will leverage Maxis’ end-to-end capabilities spanning cloud, data analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Maxis’ 4G and 5G network will provide essential connectivity for Blueshark’s fleet, ensuring secure and reliable data collection for the dashboard with full Application Programming Interface (API) integration.

Maxis will also provide network connectivity to Blueshark’s battery swap stations, across Malaysia, to help them analyse and manage their battery inventory.
