Nov 11, 2013 (Mon): AIMS Group (‘AIMS’), Malaysia and South East Asia’s leading operator of premium carrier-neutral data centre and managed service provider, today announces its partnership with China Telecom (M) Sdn Bhd (‘CT’), the world’s largest wireline telecommunications and broadband services provider as well as the world’s largest CDMA mobile operator.
According to CEO of AIMS Chiew Kok Hin, the partnership will see AIMS’ collaboration with CT in two areas – AIMS will be a reseller of CT’s premium IP routes as well as Chinese data center capacity to local corporations seeking for extension into the various Chinese cities.
“In hand with this arrangement, AIMS will be working with CT to roll out IPVPN (Internet Protocol Virtual Private Network) services as more Chinese Internet Content is expected to be in demand by the Malaysian market.”
He adds that the move is also aligned with the Malaysian government’s EPP 3 vision to positioning Malaysia as a World-class Data Centre Hub.
“AIMS’ select partnership with CT as Asia’s premier telecommunications and Internet Service Provider (ISP) is part of our on going effort in providing more value added services and competitive variation to our customers who require a niche from their data center provider.”
President of China Telecom (M) Sdn Bhd, Li Jun adds, “CT’s partnership with AIMS is also with the objective of attracting ISPs and Internet Data Center (IDCs) providers in Malaysia to do business with CT.
Indeed, this partnership marks an important milestone in CT’s supporting role to complement Malaysia in establishing itself as ASEAN regional hub for telecommunications.”
Li adds that CT has a vast experience in the operations of data centers – with more than 300 IDCs in mainland China including major cities such as Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen and Chengdu; and currently has also built five (5) IDCs overseas.
Chiew ends, “With the CT-AIMS partnership collaboration, Malaysian companies and AIMS’ customers seeking to venture into the Chinese market can now leverage on the established premier IP China routes for more synergistic business and content sharing opportunities between China and ASEAN ISPs.”
