S. Korea's LG Uplus to supply Thailand's AIS with 5G content
LG Uplus Corp. has signed a deal to export US$11.14 million worth of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) 5G content to Thailand's top mobile carrier, Advanced Info Service (AIS).
Under the deal, LG Uplus will also oversee the rollout of the service from its testing to launch.
The South Korean telecom operator expects its immersive 5G content to gain popularity in Thailand.
The latest deal expands LG Uplus' total 5G exports to $22 million since 2019.
LG Uplus also supplies 5G content to China Telecom Corp., Hong Kong Telecommunications Ltd., Japan's KDDI Corp., and Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom Co.
Last September, LG Uplus formed a global AR and VR alliance with telecom operators to collaborate on developing 5G-based immersive content.
The mobile carrier also released 5G-based AR glasses last August in the local market with Chinese mixed-reality developer Nreal.
