Advanced Info Service (AIS), Thailand’s largest mobile operator, is revolutionizing the country’s telecom industry with cognitive technology and a focus on sustainable growth. Under its concept of a sustainable nation, AIS is taking steps to become a cognitive tech company by next year. This evolution will be driven by three core pillars: digital infrastructure, cross-industry collaboration, and the sustainable growth of people and society.
AIS has invested approximately 1 trillion baht in its network expansion over the past three decades. With 46,590 cell sites nationwide and a 254,000-kilometer-long fiber cable network, the company believes that telecom networks are more than just cables. AIS aims to add intelligence to its networks to deliver greater benefits and create added value for customers.
To enhance its capabilities, AIS is expanding its enterprise infrastructure and platforms. One notable addition is the Communication Platform as a Service (CPaaS), a cloud-based solution for corporate communications that connects with AIS’ 5G network, fiber network, edge computing system, cloud system, and software application networks. This expansion will enable AIS to offer advanced services to its customers.
In partnership with Triple T Broadband (TTTBB), AIS is collaborating to bring extensive benefits to their combined user base of over 13 million households. The collaboration will enhance the broadband service infrastructure, providing improved connectivity and services to customers.
AIS is also introducing its Living Network service, which goes beyond telecommunications. This service allows customers to control and design their own data use cases according to their lifestyles. It aims to provide a personalized experience for customers and will be launched next month.
Furthermore, AIS is keeping pace with technological advancements by introducing the latest WiFi 7 technology in partnership with TP-Link. This technology features WiFi 7 standard routers that can connect devices, alleviate signal congestion, support 8K video streaming, and meet the demands of every household member.
In terms of cross-industry collaboration, AIS is working with ZTE to roll out a Cloud PC for Enterprise solution. This cloud-based system enables companies to manage their resources in the form of a Desktop as a Service (DaaS), ensuring maximum security in terms of data protection. Additionally, AIS has collaborated with Microsoft to provide the services of Microsoft Teams Phone, allowing companies to manage their communications efficiently and cost-effectively.
AIS recognizes the importance of fostering sustainable growth for society and the public. The company has been promoting the responsible use of technology through programs like AIS Aunjai Cyber, which educates users about cyber threats and scams. Additionally, AIS has implemented artificial intelligence technology in network towers to manage energy consumption in line with customer load, aligning with its green network policy.
Through its vision of a sustainable nation, AIS is leveraging its strengths and partnerships to revolutionize the telecom industry in Thailand. With its focus on digital infrastructure, cross-industry collaboration, and the sustainable growth of people and society, AIS is poised to lead the next evolution in the country’s telecom sector.
