Its partner, Extreme Broadband Sdn Bhd, a local internet service provider, will provide broadband internet service to the educational institution, it said.
H3C claimed its cloudnet solution is able to overcome the limitations of traditional IT infrastructure and can offer a more scalable and reliable IT infrastructure that is designed to streamline business performance and support development and growth.
These products and solutions, it said will provide UTAR greater flexibility, agility and resilience to meet the demands of the new digital economy.
“The partnership with UTAR underlines the company's goal of building its strategic partner ecosystem to support Malaysia's digital economy,” said Rockies Ma, country general manager of H3C Malaysia.

UTAR vice president Ewe Hong Tat said, “With H3C coming on board, we are confident that we will be able to digitalise our campus operations to adapt to Malaysia’s rapidly changing economy.”
As part of the partnership, H3C said it will provide training to certify academics at the Lee Kong Chian Faculty of Engineering and Science, and Faculty of Information and Communication Technology of UTAR with relevant network solution skills.
Besides donating devices for the students and lecturers to conduct experiments, H3C will also be offering UTAR graduates internship opportunities as the company believes this will help shape the future of talent.
