Maxis is collaborating with Blueshark, a smart scooter provider, and EV Connection Sdn. Bhd. (EVC), operator of the JomCharge charging network, to accelerate the adoption of e-mobility solutions. Maxis will provide 4G and 5G network connectivity solutions for connected vehicles and EV charge points in Malaysia. These digital solutions are expected to help accelerate new EV technologies.

The collaboration was announced at E-Mobility Asia, with Maxis as the designated smart mobility solution provider. To initiate the collaboration, a document exchange ceremony took place during the E-Mobility Asia (EMA) 2023 exhibition, where Maxis signed Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with Blueshark and EVC.

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 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 networks 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.
