New ICT infrastructure for UiTM

Inked: Prof Mohd Azraai signing the virtual MoU.

INFORMATION and Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructure solutions will be built in Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM), thanks to a collaboration between the varsity and Huawei Technologies (Malaysia).

The parties signed a virtual Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate on developing the Smart Campus and a Smart Data Centre within UiTM.

The MoU’s main objectives, UiTM said, is to leverage Huawei’s Smart Campus technology to develop an “intelligent campus”, consisting of cutting-edge digital infrastructure and cybersecurity solutions.

“(We want to) explore initiatives to create a Smart Data Centre and ICT Infrastructure Solutions via workshops and technical discussions using Huawei’s technological and technical expertise, which will then be implemented through digital solutions in UiTM’s campuses nationwide.

“We want to uphold Huawei and UiTM’s commitment to develop local ICT talents through the Huawei ICT Academy to create more ICT talents within UiTM, with the added value of holding Huawei certifications, ” the varsity said in a press release.

UiTM vice-chancellor Emeritus Prof Datuk Dr Mohd Azraai Kassim said the collaboration is a milestone for the university.

“The Smart Campus initiative will make it possible for UiTM campuses throughout the country to be equipped and ready for the future, ” he added.

Agreeing with him was UiTM deputy vice-chancellor (Network, Industry, Community, Alumni and Entrepreneurship) Prof Datuk Dr Rahmat Mohamad, who said Huawei’s presence in UiTM will be a “magnet” for other reputable companies to cooperate and raise academia-industry collaborations.

The collaboration, Huawei Enterprise Malaysia vice-president David Li said, will bring Huawei closer to their goal of empowering universities and communities with the right innovative technologies.

“With Huawei’s innovative technologies and experience, the smart campus solutions will effectively match the evolving needs of higher education institutions and enterprises, which in turn, promote the development of Malaysia’s ICT talent, ” he said.
