BEIJING, June 5, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChinaCache International Holdings Ltd. ("ChinaCache" or the"Company") (Nasdaq:CCIH), the leading total solutions provider of internet content and application delivery services in China, announced today that it has established a strategic partnership with Telecom Malaysia Berhad ("TM"), Malaysia's leading new generation communications provider and broadband champion, to provide China-originated internet content locally in Malaysia.
Under the partnership, ChinaCache will provide the technology to localize China-originated content in Malaysia, allowing content to be stored in and served via caches deployed in Malaysia before reaching end customers through TM's network. The partnership will thereby improve the accessibility of China-originated content for Malaysian internet users, enhancing their experience and reducing costs for carriers.
Historically, internet users in Southeast Asia received large amounts of content such as websites and videos from the North American region. This partnership between ChinaCache and TM will cater to and further encourage the increasing demand for China-originated content in Malaysia.
Commenting on the partnership, Rozaimy Abd Rahman, Executive Vice President, TM Global said, "TM is very pleased with this collaboration with ChinaCache, where Malaysians, especially TM's customers, will not only be able to enjoy excellent Chinese content but also enjoy enhanced surfing experience as the source of content is stored locally here, which will result in seamless network performance. This new collaborative effort will definitely help cement the value of Malaysia as an important content hub in this region, complementing Malaysia's existing sound internet infrastructure."
Joe Zhu, General Manager of ChinaCache's North American branch stated: "The strong social media presence in Malaysia has led to growing interest in Chinese content and ChinaCache is committed to the goal of making that content easily accessible internationally."
"We are very pleased to partner with one of Malaysia's leading telecoms providers and to enhance the internet experience of Malaysia's 17.5 million internet users. This partnership enhances ChinaCache's international footprint and is illustrative of ChinaCache's ambition to boost its presence across Asia in the coming years," commented Mr. Song Wang, founder, chairman and CEO of ChinaCache.
