KUALA LUMPUR, 24 September 2021 – H3C, a leader in digital solutions, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) to improve and upgrade the campus’s network. Through the collaboration, H3C has provided a campus network, Wi-Fi 6 solution and Cloudnet solution to UTAR using the latest public cloud management platform to monitor and manage their network devices.
In addition, one of H3C’s partners, Extreme Broadband Sdn Bhd, a local internet service provider, will be providing broadband internet service to the educational institution. The MoU was signed by Rockies Ma, Country General Manager of H3C Malaysia and Ir. Professor Dr. Ewe Hong Tat, President and CEO of UTAR.
The Cloudnet solution is capable of overcoming the limitations of traditional IT infrastructure, which are becoming more inefficient over the years. Cloud-based services offer a much more scalable and reliable IT infrastructure that is specifically designed to streamline business performance and support development and growth. These products and solutions will provide UTAR greater flexibility, agility and resilience to meet the demands of the new digital economy.
Rockies Ma, Country General Manager of H3C Malaysia, said the partnership with UTAR underlines the company’s goal of building its strategic partner ecosystem to support Malaysia’s digital economy.
“We work closely with partners in key sectors such as education, government, healthcare, telecommunications, and manufacturing to promote digital transformation and build a new smart future for them as Malaysia undergoes the Malaysian Digital Economy Blueprint (MyDIGITAL) initiative,” said Rockies Ma.
Through the announcement of this partnership, H3C 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 the necessary campus 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 method would shape the future of talents to understand the world of the digital economy.
