San Jose, Calif. -- LGC Wireless, a market leader in in-building wireless networking solutions, announced the installation of its InterReach(tm) Unison system in Berjaya Times Square located in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur. The LGC Wireless solution allows for improved wireless capacity and coverage for the 3 million monthly guests that visit this integrated retail, entertainment and leisure complex which spans over 7.5 million square feet. LGC's solution ensures its visitors are never out of touch and every mobile call arrives safely at its destination.
Berjaya Times Square has 1,000 shops, 65 restaurants, a hotel, convention center, indoor roller coaster and it's own helipad. Times Square is set to be an international landmark for shopping, luxury accommodations, business, amusement, dining and entertainment. The shopping mall alone is 2,100,000 square feet. This is the second biggest in-building wireless project for Malaysia after the Petronas Towers, which also has LGC's wireless solution deployed.
LGC teamed up with system integrator and distributor ENC Sendirian Berhad along with the largest Malaysian GSM operators- Celcom, DiGi, and Maxis, to implement the InterReach Unison system. InterReach Unison is a fiber optic wireless networking system designed to handle both wireless voice and data communications and provide high quality, seamless access for mobile users.
"We were happy to work with LGC Wireless on the project at Berjaya Times Square, Kuala Lumpur," said TK Lum, managing director of ENC Sendirian Berhad. "Our partnership with LGC enabled us to successfully complete the project ahead of schedule. This in-building system was designed for current 2/2.5G and future 3G networks. It is shared commonly by the three cellular operators; Celcom, Digi, and Maxis. With more than 1300 wideband antennas covering 7.5 million square feet, this installation is the largest single shared in-building network in Malaysia and possibly the world. "
"LGC Wireless is proud to provide Times Square with superior wireless access," said Ian Sugarbroad, president and CEO of LGC Wireless. "The expertise and complimentary strengths of LGC Wireless, ENC, Celcom, DiGi, and Maxis bring a best-in-class wireless solution to Times Square ensuring uninterrupted wireless communication throughout Malaysia's biggest commercial complex."
