WHA Digital Platform, through WHA Infonite Company Limited - a subsidiary of WHA Group, Thailand's leader in fully-integrated Logistics, Industrial Estates, Utilities & Power and Digital Platform - continues to develop its fiber optics (FTTx) services to answer the growing IT and data needs of its customers. By the end of this year, the company will be able to provide FTTx full coverage in seven out of its ten operating industrial estates in Thailand, and partial coverage in the remaining three.
Underground FTTx infrastructure, based on Air Blowing Micro-Fiber technology, will bring numerous advantages to WHA industrial estate customers, such as high-speed, low latency and enhanced connectivity with both local and international networks. In addition to cloud services and data storage, security and compliance will also be improved, with the possibility to connect directly with WHA Tier III data centers, providing full Outside Full Backup, as well as Disaster Recovery (DR) services.
Likewise, it will facilitate the development of 5G technologies and solutions, such as PaaS (Platform as a Service) and SaaS (Software as a Service), for WHA industrial estate and warehouse customers, after WHA Digital Platform recently signed a series of MoUs with major telecom operators to collaborate on 5G network planning. The company also finalized an agreement with JasTel Network Company Limited, a subsidiary of Jasmine International Pcl, to provide colocation and system network services.
"FTTx deployment in all our industrial estates and warehouses will guarantee business continuity and enhanced performance for our customers," said Mr. Kraitos Ongchaisak, Chief Executive Officer, WHA Infonite Co., Ltd. "Between major local and international operators and Internet providers, they will have up to 9 options to choose from. It will also be a great accelerator for the use of 5G technologies by those who want to implement smart manufacturing as part of their digital transformation. This will drive businesses towards greater success and create a positive impact on the country's economy," he explained.
