Cisco is a recognised global leader in data center technology. The MOU is regarding PPTelecom’s business collaboration with Cisco to accelerate and develop a Mega Data Center (MDC) Hub in Sarawak by utilizing the strategic advantages of Sarawak, namely Sarawak’s abundant hydropower, safe and stable climate and strategic location in the center of Asia. Cisco also intends to support the development of the Mega Data Center hub’s client base.

We are glad to have strong and reputable international partners like PCCW / HKT and Cisco whose global expertise are undoubted. That coupled with the strong support of our Government makes me certain of the huge market potential for our project in Sarawak. PPTelecom welcomes continued discussions with tech companies around the world to invest in our Sarawak hub, as an outstanding outside-the-box location for mega data centers and internet transit.”
