Metro Ethernet is a metropolitan area network that connects multiple networks to provide intranet connectivity. Metro Ethernet infrastructure utilises fiber optic technology over a private and dedicated Ethernet network for data transmission, which is secured, flexible and scalable. Customers who subscribe metro Ethernet services from us have the choice of a wide range of bandwidth, which generally can be up to 1 Gbps.
An intranet connected using metro Ethernet allows our customers to connect multiple sites with multiusers at different locations within the city, in different cities or even states within Malaysia via a private network, which is also known as IPVPN. This provides a dedicated, secured and reliable connection to our customers. On top of that, if required by customers, we are capable of providing dedicated internet access using metro Ethernet via our internet exchange.
While the metro Ethernet infrastructure is owned and managed by telecommunication companies in Malaysia, the design, installation and implementation of metro Ethernet within our customers’ premises are done by us. As such, we cooperate with a variety of third party telecommunication companies in Malaysia on a project basis.
The metro Ethernet intranet solution provides network connectivity for connecting customers’ sites in two or more locations by implementing metropolitan area private network using the metro Ethernet. This network connectivity can be used by our customers who require private and secured connection between two or more locations such as their branches and offices. Compared with a network using VPN, which is a security solution for companies to set up intranets among multiple locations secured by encryption and authentication via the Internet, our metro Ethernet intranet connectivity uses IPVPN technology over metro Ethernet networks to establish a secured and dedicated intranet among multiple locations, which offers intranet connectivity with even higher level of availability and security.
