Allo Technology Malaysia upgrades network stack with Juniper tech

Malaysian IT and telco services provider Allo has overhauled its infrastructure with help from Juniper Networks, tapping into the vendor’s MX480 Universal Routing Platform offering to underpin its modernisation efforts.

A subsidiary of Malaysian electricity utility provider Tenaga Nasional Berhad, Allo used to be known as Setia Haruman Technology. Based in Cyberjaya, Malaysia, the company was formed to facilitate the development of smart cities via IT infrastructure, and provides ‘infostructure’ facilities, broadband internet and a range of other IT services.

Allo is responsible for deploying the Cyberjaya Metro Fibre Network, Malaysia’s first fully fibre optic open access network, and was recently engaged by the Malaysian government to implement the National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan Pilot in Jasin, Melaka under the National Broadband Initiative.

The provider chose Juniper Networks to upgrade its existing network infrastructure in the hope that such an upgrade would support current and future demands for crucial high-speed internet connectivity, especially in previously underserved communities across Malaysia.

“We are excited to expand our partnership with Juniper Networks in support of Malaysia’s immense digital transformation,” said Muhammad Mohd Yunos, Allo Technology chief technology officer. “The government and our partners have repeatedly entrusted us to deliver high-speed and high-quality connectivity.

“As we continue to pave the way toward a fiberised nation, alongside Juniper Networks, we remain committed to creating the connectivity that will enrich the lives of all Malaysians, especially in the previously underserved communities across our nation,” he added.

The move comes after internet and telco service providers experienced a sudden surge in mobile data consumption when, last year, Malaysia introduced lockdown measures to curb the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This network traffic growth continued into 2021, driven by video consumption, cloud adoption and mobile penetration alike, leading to continued strain on retail service providers and enterprise networks.

To keep pace with the growing demand for high-speed connectivity, Allo plans to expand its fiberisation coverage nationwide, targeting 180,000 premises by the end of 2021.
