Macao’s telecom company CTM has partnered with Huawei and the Macau University of Science and Technology (MUST) to address the SAR’s campus development needs through 5G technology.

The partnership has developed the city’s first “5G Smart Campus Network” in Macao, as well as the first cross-regional data solution between mainland China and Macao.

Using Huawai’s 5G mobile VPN, the network gives teachers and students high-speed access to MUST’s intranet regardless of their location – with improved data protection measures.

In October, the collaborative solution won first prize in the 6th Bloom Cup 5G Application Competition, organised by the national Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. It also won the Best International Application Award, out of applicants from 23 countries and regions worldwide.

The 5G Smart Campus Network has been designed to facilitate academic research and enhance user experiences both within Macao and when MUST students or staff are overseas, using international roaming capacity.

CTM has said it will waive its usual 5G data usage fees for users connecting to the university intranet from Macao, the mainland and Hong Kong.
