Clarion Malaysia, a world automotive supplier specializing in in- vehicle infotainment equipment, has showcased its powerful trial of Malaysia’s second 5G- enabled superior manufacturing line, powered by YTL Communications ‘ Yes 5G Private Network and Cnergenz’s smart manufacturing solutions.

Gobind Singh, Malaysia’s secretary of Digital, remarked,” Clarion Malaysia’s engagement with technology solutions from Cnergenz and Dassault Systèmes is a major move in advancing Malaysia’s IR4.0 interests. The benefits of 5G include not just for users; it will also significantly increase Malaysia’s productivity and competitiveness.

He added that Malaysia will benefit from significant economic growth and become a desirable hotspot for FDI due to the country’s top public and private 5G network.

Tan Teong Khin, managing director of Clarion Malaysia, added that the relationship between Yes and Cnergenz, where their professional knowledge and answer features are crucial, helped to make this game-changing technology possible. By embracing the Yes 5G Private Network and AI-based technology, Clarion is now able to digitally enhance its production process, lower our running time by 70 %, improve materials control, improve performance, and improve quality, leading to lower operational costs and improved manufacturing quality.

For Clarion Malaysia’s production line, the smart manufacturing solution, such as cloud-based inventory systems and AI-powered Autonomous Mobile Robots, is deployed by Yes ‘ high-capacity, ultra-low latency private 5G connectivity to support mission-critical operations and security requirements. These Yes 5G Private Network solutions collectively improve production efficiency and quality by allowing for seamless integration and real-time communication between employees and the machinery managed by Dassault Systèmes ‘ next-generation ERP and PLM, leading to significant increases in productivity and quality.

” We were the first to introduce 5G to consumers and we are proud to be the first to introduce Private 5G Network to advanced manufacturing as the champion for 5G in Malaysia.” Manufacturing is all about actionable intelligence and adaptability in this new era, not just cost management. Yes 5G Private Network provides the critical high- capacity, ultra- low latency communications fabric to enable next- generation smart manufacturing, integrating AI and robotics into the factory floor”, said Wing K. Lee, CEO of YTL Communications.

He added that the Yes 5G Private Network, which is based on the most recent 5G SA ( Standalone ) Network standard, was created to fulfill the mission-critical requirements for enterprise customers with top-notch end-to-end security and resilience, giving Clarion Malaysia flexibility to enable instrumentation and automation anywhere inside the factory in a secure manner.

The Third Generation Partnership Project’s global standards for 5G SA ( Standalone ) and the Network Security Assurance Scheme are adhered to by the Yes 5G Private Network, developed in collaboration with Intel and QCT, for the highest level of 5G security. The No 5G Private Network uses Intel Xeon Scalable processors to provide high-speed connectivity and provide robust security because the traffic is completely self-contained in this onsite private 5G network, from device to device, to 5G SA core, giving the lowest latency and highest level of protection and resilience. This makes No 5G Private Network highly appropriate for mission-critical deployments.

Ahmad Zaki bin Zahid, chief strategy fficer of Digital Nasional Berhad, commented,” We are pleased to be part of this cutting- edge trial, as we continue to expand on our world- class, future- ready 5G network. It is another important milestone in DNB’s drive to transform Malaysia into a digital economy through the application of 5G technology, digitalisation, automation, and artificial intelligence in various industry verticals. Entities within the oil &amp, gas, manufacturing, and logistics sectors are now leveraging private 5G networks to automate their processes, thereby increasing operating efficiency, safety, and overall quality. We want to see more businesses take advantage of the opportunities offered by 5G.

Cnergenz provides Clarion Malaysia’s smart facility with 5G- enabled manufacturing solutions, including intelligent scanners, smart racks, X- ray automated counter, and Autonomous Mobile Robots to automate and minimise human errors, from incoming materials management to the assembly and delivery of end products from factory floor to warehouse.

Meanwhile, Dassault Systèmes ‘ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and DELMIAWorks Manufacturing ERP empower manufacturers like Clarion Malaysia to achieve greater competitiveness. The company can streamline collaboration and provide real-time operational visibility to Clarion by integrating their bill of materials and engineering bill of materials into a single platform, which will speed up the company’s new product introduction process, improve supplier interactions, and secure their intellectual property.
