CY­BER­JAYA: Busi­nesses in Cy­ber­jaya will have su­per­fast In­ter­net speed, now that the place is wired with a broad­band ser­vice that goes up to 1Gbps (one gi­ga­bit per sec­ond).

The Aries In­fin­ity ser­vice, pro­vided by Aries Tele­coms (M) Bhd, claims to be “the re­gion’s fastest” and runs on the lat­est In­ter­net Pro­to­col ver­sion 6 (IPv6) tech­nol­ogy.

The fi­bre op­tics in­fra­struc­ture cur­rently cov­ers about 90% of com­mer­cial build­ings in Cy­ber­jaya.

Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Mul­ti­me­dia Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak said the Gov­ern­ment lauded ef­forts by Malaysian com­pa­nies to pro­vide In­ter­net ser­vices on the lat­est IPv6 plat­form.

“As the world to­day is pre­par­ing for the tran­si­tion from In­ter­net Pro­to­col ver­sion 4 (IPv4) to IPv6, our Gov­ern­ment recog­nises the im­por­tance of IPv6’s adop­tion to the coun­try’s devel­op­ment.

“Ef­forts by com­pa­nies such as Aries Tele­coms in launch­ing this Aries In­fin­ity ser­vice is very much wel­comed,” said Dr Salleh in his speech at the prod­uct launch yes­ter­day.

He ex­pressed hope that the ser­vice would not just be lim­ited to busi­nesses but also ex­panded to schools and homes.

“Choos­ing Cy­ber­jaya as the na­tion’s first lo­ca­tion to be equipped with the fastest broad­band ser­vice will def­i­nitely el­e­vate Cy­ber­jaya’s rep­u­ta­tion as a global tech­nol­ogy hub.

“I urge more busi­nesses to take ad­van­tage of these new fa­cil­i­ties and make Cy­ber­jaya the op­er­a­tional hub for their busi­nesses,” he said.

Aries Tele­coms chair­man Datuk Zu­raidi Rahim said about 250km of fi­bre op­tic in­fra­struc­ture has been laid out in Cy­ber­jaya for the ser­vice, un­der a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween his com­pany and Se­tia Haru­man Tech­nol­ogy Sdn Bhd (SH Tech).

“The fi­bre op­tics cover 90% of the build­ings in Cy­ber­jaya, thus mak­ing the 1 Gig In­fin­ity Broad­band read­ily avail­able for busi­ness users and en­abling more smart city projects and In­ter­net of Things (IoT) ap­pli­ca­tions to be de­ployed in Cy­ber­jaya.”

The com­pany in­vested about RM1­bil to lay down the in­fra­struc­ture over the years.

The Aries In­fin­ity pack­age is avail­able for busi­nesses in Cy­ber­jaya at the price of RM5,000 a month.
