KUALA LUMPUR, 24 MARCH 2011 - Malaysian communications provider Telekom Malaysia [TM] has launched a network infrastructure project called DBKL*Net, which will boost communications delivery for local public service departments.
TM executive vice president, government, Dato' Kairul Annuar Mohamed Zamzam, said DBKL*Net is an information sharing backbone between departments and branch offices of the Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) department.
"With this three-year collaborative project between DBKL and TM, we will see networks across various DBKL operations transform into a single fast, secure and reliable telecommunications network using Metro-E on a leased line platform," said Kairul Annuar, during the launch by Kuala Lumpur's mayor, Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Ismail.
"TM has upgraded the bandwidth capacity in each department and branch office of the City Hall to support the application system requirements and faster Internet access," he said, adding that TM is providing DBKL with Metro Ethernet virtual private network (Metro-E VPN), which will boost DBKL's Internet access speed to its various offices and departments. This will allow DBKL to enjoy increased connectivity, higher productivity, faster access speed and bandwidth, better security and higher transparency."
"With the integration, all application systems can be accessed from a single PC, as compared to multiple PCs to access different applications previously," he said. "This move also allows DBKL to roll out a centralised monitoring system of its whole network."
"With the integration and faster connection, DBKL's network infrastructure will be more efficient, centralised and secure," said Kairul Annuar. "Moving forward, this will also help the City Hall to enhance its public service delivery and performance."
