24 Mar 2022

Nokia has been selected by Malaysia’s TIME dotCom for the supply and delivery of a DWDM optical network. According to the vendor, the nationwide rollout will help TIME meet fast growing traffic demands by enhancing connectivity across data centres and cable landing stations in Malaysia with a highly resilient optical network.

In a press release regarding the development, it was noted that the new infrastructure will connect multiple data centres, cable landing stations, and telecom exchanges spanning across peninsular Malaysia to Singapore and Thailand. Meanwhile, the deployment will feature Nokia’s 1830 PSS portfolio to provide a level of scalability for supporting a wide range of applications and services, with it claimed that this platform will allow TIME dotCom to deploy services rapidly, reduce network total cost of ownership, and extend network lifecycles. In addition, the optical solutions being deployed to further future-proof TIME’s network will reportedly offer customers enhanced service quality and higher speeds while the operator benefits from a simplified network that increases operational and cost efficiency.
