We are confident in serving the needs of the region not only through our solutions, but also with our proven local and international technology leaders to deliver cutting-edge solutions to various sectors.

“We look forward to partnering SDEC in co-creating innovations and growth opportunities that will power digital societies, businesses and Government, and propel Sarawak towards its next phase of digital progress and economic development,” she shared.

“SDEC is proud to announce this strategic partnership with TM One as we continue our effort and pursuit in digitalising Sarawak. This collaboration enables the parties to leverage on each other’s skillset and work in tandem to unlock new and potential opportunities for the benefit of our people, particularly the state’s infrastructure, and subsequently increase access to digital services and information as well as enhance online experiences and improve livelihoods for Sarawak’s citizens in the digital economy,” said Ir. Ts. Sudarnoto Osman, Chief Executive Officer of SDEC.

With Sarawak’s digital economy expected to contribute RM56.4 billion to Sarawak’s GDP by 2030, TM One and SDEC also aim to raise awareness and enable the digital transformation of private corporations and enterprises through emerging IR 4.0 technologies. This includes insights and access to TM One’s suite of next generation networking solutions, data centre and cloud services, smart services, 5G, cybersecurity and other digital solutions, which will enable better operational efficiency and innovation among industries.

TM migrating unifi customers to private IP for more seamless connectivity and better security

With the rapid growth of Internet usage, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) worldwide are facing the exhaustion of IPv4 addresses. As such, TM has started migrating its unifi customers to private IP to enable more seamless connectivity and better security. The migration involves its unifi customers subscribing to unifi 30Mbps, 50Mbps and 100Mbps plans and are currently on dynamic public IPv4 Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. These customers are being migrated to private IPs, which will enable them to experience seamless connectivity in a more secured environment. The process will be executed remotely from our end, so the customers involved with this migration need not perform any action at their end. Customers using CCTV IP-Based and known hosting will not be impacted as they will be excluded from the migration exercise. This activity is ongoing, with minimal downtime (if any) of merely between 2 – 5 minutes. Upon completion of the migration, customers’ internet performance will not be affected. All impacted customers are notified in advance. We trust this exercise will provide our unifi customers with enhanced security when browsing the Internet or utilising any online tools and applications. We at TM are continuously upgrading and improving our product offerings to cater to the evolving needs and usage of our customers across all segments.
