Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) issues a new frequency band plan.

The IA450 applauds MCMC/Malaysia for allocating the 450MHz frequency band with the capability to use one of the worlds most advance telecommunications technology, CDMA450. The technology is able to provide affordable voice/VoIP and high speed Internet services to the citizens of Malaysia, as has been proved in other markets throughout the world

The International 450 Association congratulates the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) on the issuing of a new frequency band plan outlining requirements for the 452.000 - 456.475 MHz / 462.000 -466.475 MHz (sub-band B) bands for the current NMT450 and future digital mobile systems. The use of these frequency bands is for mobile cellular services but may also be used for fixed wireless access or limited mobility services.

The channelization of the new frequency band plan is based on a 3 Carrier Channeling Plan, which is ideally suited to the use of CDMA450. MCMC does note that there is a proposal to introduce the 450-470MHz band as a part of the spectrum for the 3G/IMT2000 and that this proposal could have an affect on the way this band is channelized.

"The IA450 applauds MCMC/Malaysia for allocating the 450MHz frequency band with the capability to use one of the worlds most advance telecommunications technology, CDMA450. The technology is able to provide affordable voice/VoIP and high speed Internet services to the citizens of Malaysia, as has been proved in other markets throughout the world," said Safwan Zaheer, Chairman of Regulatory and Standards group within IA 450.
