TELEKOM Malaysia Bhd (TM) and UMLand J-Biotech Park Sdn Bhd, a 50:50 joint venture between Johor State Government via Johor Biotechnology & Biodiversity Corporation (J-Biotech) and United Malayan Land Bhd (UMLand) recently inked a collaboration agreement for the provision of TM’s high speed broadband (HSBB) network infrastructure and UniFi services as well as TM’s integrated business solutions at Johor Halal Park (JHP) development in Pasir Gudang.
Under this agreement, property buyers and tenants of the industrial park will be able to enjoy immediate high speed connectivity and enhanced digital experience upon moving into their premises.
This agreement is the first collaborative agreement between TM and UMLand J-Biotech Park to support the development of JHP, elevating the establishment to become a world class smart integrated industrial park and the first premium bio-halal industrial park in Malaysia.
This business model will be replicated to more industrial park developments enabled by TM in the future.
Commenting on the collaboration, TM Johor state vice president Azhar Omar said, “We are indeed very pleased and excited with this collaboration where JHP has chosen TM as its partner for the deployment of telecommunications and ICT solutions at its future developments in the next five years.
“We acknowledge that the manufacturing industry is very competitive and is mainly driven by a very high demand for customised products. This partnership will provide TM the opportunity to demonstrate our capabilities in the provision of converged communications services and solutions that will fulfill the needs of businesses, especially in today’s sophisticated digital era.
“This not only reflects our commitment to deliver our promise of ‘Life and Business Made Easier’, it also shows our continued effort in bringing seamless digital experience to more Malaysians.
“Living in the Era of Convergence today, as Malaysia’s Convergence Champion, TM is committed to manifest our ‘Life and Business Made Easier’ experience across five pillars namely smarter living, smarter businesses, smarter cities, smarter communities, and smarter nation.
“We leverage on our next generation network and ICT solutions to co-create an infrastructure and services that can boost the manufacturing and real estate industry in Malaysia as well as the way buildings, homes and offices are experienced.”
With the agreement in place, JHP’s clients will enjoy the UniFi package that comes with value added services such as Microsoft Office 365 bundling, enabling them to enjoy high speed internet services with speeds up to 100Mbps, competitive call rates and free initial setup for Microsoft Office 365 user licenses.
Meanwhile, commenting on this agreement, UMLand J-Biotech Park CEO Mohd Noor Abd Salam stated that, “Information technology has become an integral part for majority of business plans. Johor Halal Park views this collaboration as timely with the participation of a smart business partner like TM in our Halal Industry Park which definitely empowers the industrial park with world class ICT solutions.”
“The demand for high speed and quality internet services has accelerated in the country. Johor Halal Park has become technologically astute and requires access to always-on, high-speed data connectivity to cater to their investor needs. With this opportunity for access and aggregation of fiber network from TM, JHP will be able to obtain quick access to fibre infrastructure to support our future network capacity demands, in order to deliver affordable and high-quality internet connectivity.”
