TM ties up with Tata Communications


The collaboration, through TM’s global and wholesale arm TM Wholesale Trading Sdn Bhd, will enable service providers, mobile network operators, and Internet service providers in the region to address their customers’ growing data connectivity needs by providing access to a global Tier 1 Internet Protocol (IP) network.

PETALING JAYA: Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) will be collaborating with global digital ecosystem enabler, Tata Communications, to offer stable, high-speed, and reliable connectivity in the Asean region and open access to global enterprises.

The collaboration, through TM’s global and wholesale arm TM Wholesale Trading Sdn Bhd, will enable service providers, mobile network operators, and Internet service providers in the region to address their customers’ growing data connectivity needs by providing access to a global Tier 1 Internet Protocol (IP) network.

“This will help deliver reliable, stable Tier-1 IP Transit (IPT) service, an Internet connectivity service that enables end-users to access all websites and content on the Internet. It will further boost sectors such as e-commerce, online entertainment, retail, online banking and delivery services that have accelerated in recent times,” TM and Tata Communications said in a joint statement.

As part of the deal, Tata Communications will expand its IPT service coverage leveraging on TM’s data centre, extensive connectivity, and network infrastructure in Malaysia.

The collaboration will also enable Tata Communications to optimise TM’s reachability within the Asean region through terrestrial networks and submarine cables to the neighbouring countries. The submarine cables include the Malaysia-Cambodia-Thailand submarine cable for connectivity to Indochina and Nusantara Gateway submarine cable for connectivity to Indonesia.

At the same time, TM will benefit from Tata Communications global Tier-1 IP network to serve customers in more than 190 countries and territories, hence further extending TM’s IP transit coverage and enhances its regional TMiX offering.
