ChinaCache, TM in strategic partnership

KUALA LUMPUR: ChinaCache International Holdings Ltd and Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) have established a strategic partnership in a joint effort to provide Chinese content localisation in Malaysia.

The partnership will improve the accessibility of Chinese content for Malaysian Internet users, where ChinaCache will provide the technology to localise Chinese content in Malaysia which will enhance users’ experience and reduce costs for carriers.

“The localisation technology will allow content to be stored in, and served, via the caches deployed in Malaysia before reaching the end customers through TM’s network,” it said in a joint statement.

ChinaCache is a leading provider of content delivery network services in China.

ChinaCache’s North American branch general manager Joe Zhu said the strong social media presence in Malaysia had accounted for growing interest in Chinese content and ChinaCache was committed to the goal of making that content easily accessible internationally.

“TM is indeed very pleased with this collaboration with ChinaCache.

Malaysians, especially TM’s customers, will not only be able to enjoy excellent Chinese content but also enjoy enhanced surfing experience as the source of content is stored locally here, which will result in seamless network performance.

“This new collaborative effort between both companies will definitely help cement the value of Malaysia as an important content hub in this region, complementing Malaysia’s existing sound Internet infrastructure,” TM Global executive vice president Rozaimy Abd Rahman said. - The Star
