Level 3 Communications has reached an agreement with Telekom Malaysia (TM) to provide internet localisation services.

The deal will allow TM to cache high-demand content locally on its network, enhancing internet connectivity, network efficiency and security.

"The rapidly increasing consumption of high-bandwidth content is changing the internet landscape and altering the way communications providers configure and manage their network infrastructure," said Gary Breauninger, Level 3's VP of strategic enterprise and wholesale sales. "By leveraging the global reach of the Level 3 network to deliver content closer to high-demand population centres, we are able to dramatically improve content access and provide a richer internet experience."

Level 3's internet localisation service combines the company's content delivery network (CDN) with deep edge caching and high-speed IP to route traffic on TM's network.

“Working with Level 3 will definitely help to enhance TM's customers' surfing experience and also provide a cost-saving prospect by reducing TM's usage of international capacity," added Rozaimy Rahman, EVP of global and wholesale at TM.
