A new agreement was signed between mu Space and Thai government agency Digital Economy Promotion Agency (DEPA), calling for cooperation to build a Digital Park to help fast-track the country’s digital transformation.

Commenting on the agreement, mu Space CEO and founder James Yenbamroong said: “We support the government in its digital transformation efforts. We have several satellite solutions in place to help accelerate the adoption of smart cities in Thailand. We believe the solutions we develop will help bridge the digital divide, improve the quality of life and enable Thai cities to become more sustainable for the future.”

Earlier in July, the Thai government revealed the vision of developing a Digital Park to support the country’s plan to become a destination hub in Southeast Asia for technology and innovation. According to the plan, the Digital Park will have a super-fast broadband infrastructure, submarine cable station, data center and satellite earth station. The park is proposed to be built on a 960,000sqm land in Sriracha, located in the eastern province of Chonburi.

Satellite technology will provide invaluable digital solutions for the Digital Park, highlights James.

“From telecommunications and environmental monitoring to navigation and emergency management, the use of satellites is predicted to grow over the next decade. We look forward to the commencement of work and delivering the project according to the high standards we are expected to meet.”

There are many challenges ahead to fully integrate different technologies, including satellites, into the Digital Park, notes James, but there are also many opportunities to make this project possible and success may well depend on collaboration.

“The need is for continued collaboration by government decision makers and technology providers who can collectively deploy the full range of digital solutions. To do this, respective players must reach out to others and develop bigger plans built on a long-term vision, with a detailed roadmap to get there,” concludes James.

The deal was signed at the Digital Thailand Big Bang event. Dubbed as Thailand’s largest technology exhibition, some 100,000 people participated in the event from 21 until 24 September.
