Telekom Malaysia, through its global and wholesale arm, TM Wholesale and Tata Communications are joining forces with the aim of offering stable, high-speed and reliable connectivity for companies in the ASEAN region.
This collaboration will also 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 IP network. The move will further boost sectors such as e-commerce, online entertainment, retail, online banking and delivery services.
As part of this arrangement, Tata Communications will expand its IPT service coverage leveraging TM’s data centre, connectivity and network infrastructure in Malaysia.
This collaboration will also enable Tata Communications to optimise TM’s reach in the ASEAN region through terrestrial networks and submarine cables. The submarine cables include the Malaysia-Cambodia-Thailand submarine cable for connectivity to Indochina and Nusantara Gateway submarine cable for connectivity to Indonesia.
TM will also benefit from Tata Communications’ IP network across more than 190 countries and territories.
