Cyberjaya gives broadband order to Swedish firm

PacketFront, a Swedish broadband infrastructure provider, has been selected to provide an operator independent network solution, enabling true broadband services, to Cyberjaya in Malaysia.
     Cyberjaya is at the heart of the country’s Multi-Media Super Corridor, a concentration of high-tech homes, business parks and shopping areas driving Malaysia’s information society.
     In a project planned and implemented by Swedish company AccessGate, on behalf of local property developer Setia Haruman Sdn. Bhd, the fibre to the home network will allow residents and businesses of Cyberjaya to receive next generation broadband services from competing service providers from a single physical network.
     In the first stage of the project’s roll-out, 300 apartments will be connected to Access Gate’s fibre to the home network.
     The Malaysian property developer will then act as the communications operator, responsible for securing service providers to compete for customers over the network.
     “We selected AccessGate and its business partner PacketFront for its ability to provide a complete solution that was compliant with our fibre to the home needs,” said Zakran Abdul Manan, General Manager Infrastructure at Setia Haruman Sdn. Bhd. “Due to the complexity of the network, it was important for us to implement a turn-key solution and that is what we have achieved.”
     The planning documentation and installation of the network will be handled by AccesGate’s Access Design System a design and engineering platform on which AccessGate bases its network solutions.
     It will enable fast and flexible build-out of the next steps of the Cyberjaya roll-out.
     “This project is wholly in-keeping with Packet Front’s vision of a true Broadband network,” said Martin Thunman, CEO, PacketFront. “We are delighted to have been chosen by AccessGate, to assist in this ground breaking project.”
