21 Aug 2013

Malaysian mobile network operator Celcom Axiata is targeting an average annual revenue growth of 35% for its digital services business over the next five years through a partnership with Huawei, according to the Star Online. Announcing the agreement with Huawei, Celcom CEO Datuk Seri Shazalli Ramly was cited as saying that the deal is expected to produce an additional MYR11 million (USD3.5 million) in turnover for its digital services segment by year-end. Under the terms of the five-year renewable contract between the two companies Huawei has been appointed as Celcom’s digital service business operation partner for the majority of its digital content providers, with the vendor offering support to them with development and commercialisation tools. Further, the agreement will also reportedly enable Celcom to manage billing and enforce mutual service agreements with its digital partners under one contract more easily.
