Telekom Malaysia and Tata Communications team up on ASEAN IP transit services (Channel Asia)

Tata Communications has struck a deal to tap into Telekom Malaysia Berhad’s (TM’s) data centre, connectivity and network infrastructure to expand its IP transit (IPT) service coverage in the country and further afield.  

Specifically, Malaysia’s national connectivity and digital infrastructure provider, through its global and wholesale arm TM Wholesale, is partnering up with Tata Communications to offer stable, high-speed and reliable connectivity in the ASEAN region while opening access to global enterprises.

It is thought the collaboration will enable Tata Communications to optimise TM’s presence within the ASEAN region through terrestrial networks and submarine cables to neighbouring countries.  

The submarine cables in the network include the Malaysia-Cambodia-Thailand submarine cable for connectivity to Indochina and, Nusantara Gateway submarine cable for connectivity to Indonesia.

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