MALAYSIA’S leading communication service provider Maxis Bhd has recently launched its Maxis Programmable Network (MPN) – a next generation enterprise grade network delivering to the needs of all enterprises for their fixed voice and data requirements.
MPN, Malaysia’s first programmable software-defined network, is a converged 5G-ready core network infrastructure designed to give enterprises greater agility, control, scalability and visibility in how they connect their organisations beyond just subscribing to a service.
“To illustrate, the MPN allows enterprises to scale their bandwidth with flexible subscriptions as short as a day,” the communication service provider pointed out.
In addition, MPN is also MEF 3.0 carrier ethernet (CE) certified to deliver enterprise-grade security and reliability for mission-critical applications. Also, it enables a key feature that is a game-changer for businesses – Bandwidth on Demand – which provides companies with the ability to upgrade bandwidth in real-time.
“With MPN, we are essentially making it easier for businesses to balance their costs and performance by having the peace of mind of greater agility and control,” Maxis’ chief enterprise business officer Paul McManus commented.
“Through our new Bandwidth on Demand feature, customers can get bandwidth they need instantly and pay only for what they need – it’s as simple as that. The MPN is a timely launch as businesses have to respond and adapt quickly to a rapidly evolving digital landscape while ensuring cost efficiency.”
The real-time Bandwidth on Demand is available with six fixed enterprise broadband services: Dedicated Internet Access, Managed SD-WAN, Cloud Connect, Multi-Protocol Label Switching VPN, Data Centre Connect, and Domestic Private Leased Circuit.
Meanwhile, upgrading of bandwidth can be done almost instantly with just a click of a button on on the new self-serve portal on the Maxis Business Hub.
Furthermore, data-heavy backups, preventive maintenance, and disaster recovery activities can also now be undertaken more effectively, resulting in savings of as much as 30%.
Maxis highlights the reason on why MPN is the most advanced network for business:
- It offers enterprise-grade performance, thanks to its MEF 3.0 certified infrastructure, the international gold-standard for ethernet services.
- It offers real-time bandwidth on demand which enables businesses to get the bandwidth they need instantly and pay only for what they need.
- It has deep integration with cloud providers to enable businesses to scale their infrastructure with ease throughout their cloud lifecycles. – Feb 9, 2021
