PUTRAJAYA: RedTone International has successfully completed a project for the Higher Education Ministry, under the Malaysian Research and Education Network (MyREN) programme.
Worth RM14.3mil in total, the project involved RedTone via its wholly owned subsidiary RedTone Marketing Sdn Bhd, providing a customised solution connecting 19 agencies via a high-speed broadband network.
“Unlike other sectors, government agencies’ needs are often more complex requiring multiple types of connectivity,” said RedTone deputy chairman Datuk Wira Syed Ali Syed Abbas Alhadshee during the official handover of the completed phase 2B of MyREN.
The successful completion of phase 2B of MyREN underscores RedTone’s competency in integration and capability in deploying tailor-made solutions and managing a wide area network,” he added.
MyREN is a high-speed research and education network encompassing all public universities, participating private universities, polytechnics, community colleges and research institutes.
It currently links over 300,000 researchers and students locally and to over 8,000 institutions internationally, to enable closer collaboration to underpin critical applications, education and research activities.
A network which combines high-speed 1Gbps and multiple 622Mbps lines, MyREN supports both Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) and Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), enabling new data-intensive applications such as bio-modelling as well as HD video conferencing, online collaboration and voice over IP applications to be conducted more efficiently.
The MyREN project is one of numerous government projects that RedTone has been awarded over the last two years. The company also intends to bid for more government projects in the coming months that are worth some RM800mil.
