May 31, 2021 - 6 minutes read

Allo Technology Sdn. Bhd (Allo), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), and Singapore’s SEAX Global Pte Ltd (SEAX) today announced that they have entered into a Joint Collaboration Agreement that will promote robust connectivity in Malaysia and neighbouring countries.

This strategic alliance and infrastructure sharing will allow both Allo and SEAX to leverage each other’s existing infrastructure to offer faster and larger data transmission through a secure transborder terrestrial system.

“We are honoured to join forces with an international company like SEAX in promoting robust connectivity and more offerings in Malaysia and neighbouring countries, which contributes further to the backhaul of Allo National Fiberisation Plan’s coverage expansion. This is especially important now that digital transformation is on the rise, contributing to the digital economy of the countries,” said Allo Chief Executive Officer Rodzi Ahmad.

The collaboration allows Allo to expand its resilient connectivity nationwide through its Allo Carrier Network System (ACNS) – with a total of 25.6Tbps from border to border (Thailand-Singapore) with highly advanced 600G Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology.

“Through the superhighway backbone, massive quantities of data can be transported securely over great distances. The network deployment delivers terabit capacity-on-demand in an easy-to-operate, highly compact form factor,” Rodzi added.

The ACNS is designed as a fully meshed network targeted to deliver up to 99.999% uptime, with multiple diverse routes of over 4,500 km on TNB’s grid infrastructure, making it the most robust transborder terrestrial system ever built.

With a scalable infrastructure, Allo is well-positioned to meet the demands of emerging technologies and services, making it ASEAN’s main connectivity hub.

“ACNS has landing points around peninsular Malaysia’s perimeter with two international gateway points from Thailand to Singapore. Thus, seamless connectivity for customers in the region is better facilitated through the collaboration of both companies that share the same mission,” said Rodzi.

SEAX Chief Executive Officer, Louis Teng said, “We are very honoured to be able to form a strategic alliance with such a complementary partner like Allo. With the consolidation of our existing SEAX network infrastructure, we are now able to jointly deliver to our customers a well thought out integrated, coherent, and protected border-to-border network within Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore with greater economic benefits. We anticipate a strong demand growth coming from mobile data users within Indo-China and we think this strategic partnership with Allo will enable SEAX to further strengthen its existing capabilities and offerings to our Thai partners for future network expansion possibilities at Padang Besar and Bukit Kayu Hitam, thereby allowing SEAX to realise our vision of being a regional facilitator for ASEAN-centric connectivity needs.”
