PPTEL (PP Telecommunication Sdn. Bhd) selects Juniper Networks, a leader in secure, AI-driven networks, to provide solutions to build a new core network that will support its growth plans in East Malaysia. This network will provide the foundation to help PPTEL meet the demand for critical high-speed internet connectivity, enabling consumers and businesses access to richer digital experiences and services. PPTEL is a network service provider based in Sarawak.
The move also comes as Sarawak, the largest state in East Malaysia, prepares to undergo major changes to its digital infrastructure as part of the Sarawak Multimedia Authority’s (SMA) plans to fast track the state’s digital economy.
PPTEL’s infrastructure puts the company in a unique position to support these plans – the company relies on submarine cables from strategic locations in the region to drive latency down while keeping services efficient and cost-effective. PPTEL is also building the first Tier IV data center in East Malaysia, a testament to the company’s commitment to delivering effective, scalable and flexible services that will drive Sarawak’s digital economy.
To better support Sarawak’s digital economy goals and PPTEL’s own plans to expand its services to Southeast Asia, the service provider selected Juniper’s routing and switching solutions to build its new core network. Juniper’s MX Series Universal Routing Platforms and QFX Series Switches will deliver industry-leading system capacity, density, security and performance.
PPTEL’s Juniper powered network, in combination with its BaSICS Cable System, will enable the service provider to provide high-quality, low-latency connectivity to consumers and businesses in Sarawak and Southeast Asia. Furthermore, with 5G on the horizon, the solutions offered by Juniper will enable PPTEL to scale their network efficiently and ensure that consumers and businesses are able to fully harness the benefits of 5G connectivity from providing high-volume streaming content and new digital experiences to unlocking business opportunities.
