TIME dotCom Berhad (TIME) is a data-centric telecommunications and solutions provider based in Malaysia, with a business reach across the Asia-Pacific region. With fixed-line telecommunications, submarine cable and data centre businesses, TIME has been breaking ground since starting out in 1996.
TIME's core business focuses on providing best-in-class backhaul and wholesale bandwidth to leading local, regional and global operators in Malaysia and the Asia-Pacific region. The Group delivers extensive fibre optic-based telecommunications solutions, including private leased lines and dedicated Internet services to large corporations, government organisations and enterprises that demand state-of-the-art, always-on connectivity.
In Malaysia, TIME has made considerable headway in the consumer segment, with the country's first 100% fibre-optic broadband service. With speeds of up to 100Mbps, TIME's service, currently the fastest in the country, has been effectively supporting some of the industry's biggest names with innovative solutions.
TIME's Malaysian business is anchored by its Cross Peninsular Cable System (CPCS™), a 6,000 kilometre-long advanced fibre optic network that traverses Thailand through Singapore. Designed as a fully meshed network, the CPCS™ is the most robust trans-border terrestrial system ever built. Following extensive upgrades in 2012, TIME is today, the only provider in Malaysia to have a next-generation, 100% IP|MPLS network.
Regionally, TIME's network extends beyond Malaysian shores via its investment in the Global Transit Group of Companies (GT). GT's global footprint includes Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan and the US, and strategic investments in submarine cable systems. These include the highly-sought Unity Cable System connecting Japan and the US, and the Asia-Pacific Gateway (APG), a 10,000 kilometre-long international fibre optic cable system linking Malaysia to Japan and South Korea. The APG is expected to be completed at the end of 2014.
The Group's data centre business is spearheaded by the AIMS Group of Companies (AIMS), one of the region's most inter-connected sites. Located strategically in the Malaysian capital's central business district, AIMS is an award-winning, carrier-neutral facility. AIMS is already home to all of Malaysia's telecommunications providers and approximately 200 service providers, making AIMS a premier choice for discerning customers.
The industry has recognised TIME's push for service and technological excellence. In 2012, TIME was accorded the prestigious Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) certification, making the Group one of 47 international firms to win recognition for the performance, interoperability and reliability of its network. TIME's compliance with global standards ensures that it is able to link up to any other telecommunications network in the world.
TIME's domestic fibre optic network, combined with GT's regional nodes for wholesale bandwidth and ownership in several submarine cable systems, as well as AIMS' data centre business, offers customers a complete land and subsea fibre optic network and value-added services that tap fast-growing ASEAN demand for fast, reliable bandwidth.
