Collaboration signifies TM’s commitment to expand cloud gaming in the ASEAN region, leveraging Radian Arc’s Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) Edge Point of Presence
Kuala Lumpur & Canberra – July 20, 2022 – TM Wholesale, the domestic and international wholesale business arm of Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM), today announced a partnership with cloud infrastructure provider Radian Arc to expand its cloud gaming offerings in Malaysia and other ASEAN countries.
The collaboration will see both parties leveraging each other’s strengths to provide users with high-quality content and cloud-gaming experiences.
Through this partnership, both companies will collaborate to deploy a new point of presence (PoP) in Malaysia, utilizing Radian Arc’s proprietary GPU Edge technology. This PoP will enhance TM Wholesale’s cloud-based gaming solutions as well as other real-time applications that use similar technology.
The availability of this robust platform ensures that these central processing units (CPUs) can provide relevant applications at a lower cost to serve.
Following the rollout of the cloud gaming platform, TM Wholesale and Radian Arc intend to make an array of cloud-based applications, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, and the Internet of Things (IOT) accessible to users in order to accelerate digital transformation and adoption, which is pivotal to Malaysia’s digital aspirations.
Radian Arc is also partnering with cloud gaming platform Blacknut to bring their games catalogue to the region, reinforcing TM Wholesale’s vision of providing better cloud gaming solutions. Through this partnership, TM Wholesale will be able to offer over 500 family-friendly premium games to service providers, with lower latency and faster start times for their customers.
Commenting on the collaboration, Amar Huzaimi Md Deris, Executive Vice President of TM Wholesale said, “TM Wholesale has always been committed to promoting Malaysia’s transition to an advanced digital economy, and given the meteoric rise of cloud gaming, we’ve shifted gears to put this into a higher drive.
“Our collaboration with Radian Arc is among our efforts to fulfil the demands of the gaming industry, while exploring opportunities in other emerging technologies such as cloud and edge computing, and ensure customers enjoy high-quality digital experiences.
“This is in line with our aspiration to position Malaysia as a regional digital hub and expand our reach via edge computing platforms to provide better user experience for next-generation applications and games,” he added.
“As we continue to expand access to cloud gaming around the world, we want to find partners who can elevate our service offerings to telcos and improve the gaming experiences we provide to players,” said David Cook, CEO of Radian Arc. “The collaboration will also look into possibilities for future applications leveraging TM’s extensive network coverage, allowing us and Blacknut to improve the quality of cloud gaming for customers in Malaysia and the surrounding regions.”
