PLDT and Cisco have announced a partnership to build a 5G Stand Alone (SA) service platform in Manila. This will be housed in the telecommunications giant’s existing 5G TechnoLab in Makati City with the aim of driving innovation in consumer and enterprise 5G solutions across the Philippines.

Powered by Cisco’s 5G SA solution, the platform will enable PLDT TechnoLab to provide an end-to-end network sandbox of the latest private 5G SA service architecture, where enterprises of all sizes, as well as numerous vertical industries, can develop digital use cases .

As part of the agreement, Cisco will share their global 5G experience in different industry verticals, with a specific focus on digital transformation and deploying 5G-enabled manufacturing.

“Cisco brings together technologies like 5G, Wi-Fi6 and IoT integrated with enterprise IT policy and security frameworks,” said Sanjay Kaul, president of APJ Service Provider at Cisco.

“For example, for hybrid work, connected remote workers with experts on demand, allow enhanced collaboration with WebEx. This allows enterprises to leverage 5G for remote asset connection with SD-WAN, while at the same time, protecting critical infrastructure with Cisco Meraki cameras and IoT sensors connected to video AI solutions over 5G. “
