China Mobile International elevates industry with 5G and mCloud solutions

CMI will also assist with the onboarding and migration to the cloud platform.

As today’s businesses shift to digital and new companies that cater to big data are growing exponentially, the need for cloud services and solutions is likewise on the rise. The demand for cloud platforms, which are capable of carrying big data, continues to grow but customers are always on the lookout for better and more secure alternatives.

At the forefront in providing digital solutions to businesses is China Mobile International (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. (CMI), which has introduced new and improved services revolving around 5G and IoT Innovation, AI, Edge Computing, and mCloud.

The company shared these latest offerings during the “Unleash the Power of Cloud” webinar held on 10 March 2021.

CMI’s managing director Adelyn Ong said CMI is working on developing new technologies and partnering with more companies to elevate its services to customers.

“As the world begins to transition from the digital era into the intelligent era, CMI aims to spearhead the development of a new generation of network technology like 5G to encourage the adoption of intelligence technology globally. The dawn of the intelligence era is upon us and we hope to be at the forefront of it. CMI global network resource has grown exponentially,” she said.

According to solution director Chen Choon Kiat, one of their aims is to boost industry application and to present their innovation as 5G+X. This will be a mix of 5G, edge computing, and artificial intelligence (AI).

“The blending of 5G, edge computing, and AI provides a foundation to support new groundbreaking cases in almost every industry. Not only will this enrich our lives, but it will also become a platform for innovation, bringing an array of opportunities to the industry,” he said.

He shared that the trend nowadays is that the use of cloud has become a priority in digital transformation. Public cloud IaaS spending grew 38% in 2019 to a worldwide total of US$49b.

Despite cloud computing being still in its early stages of development, the company projects that 85% of customer service interactions will be centered more on self-service by 2022. This is a huge leap from the current recorded number of 48%.

Included in their array of services is CMI Cloud Connect which is a service based on VPN and SDN, combined with SDWAN. It provides customers with multi-cloud connection and cloud access service, and can serve to connect to the cloud resource, data center, and office.

Solution manager Andrew Aw said that by being an mCloud partner of CMI, customers may receive training and will be put on a priority list when it comes to CMI’s latest services.

“We have launched a consulting partner program. As a cloud partner, you’ll be entitled to better discount rates and priority when it comes to our latest offerings. Additionally, we can also leverage on these partnerships to provide cloud training and certifications,” he said.

CMI can provide these services because it has an abundant backbone of network resources and POPs all over the world.

Through this, the company can provide direct connection service to the major global exchanges and can meet customer demand for ultra-low latency network and high security dedicated lease line, including customers with high frequency transactions (HFTs).

For interested customers and businesses, Aw said that CMI will help with the migration of data to the cloud. Aside from this, CMI will assist in the other areas needed for onboarding such as its financial, operational, and technical aspects.

“On the technical side, we have a solution team that will work with partners and service providers directly to support the technical aspects of the migration. From the operations and the finance perspective, our consultants will work together to better understand the customer requirements and business operations,” he said.

“We will also ensure minimal disruptions to the business operations and also ensure optimization in terms of the migration. We will work together to ensure compliance to the financial regulations specific to each customer as this may differ with each customer,” he added.

In addition, CMI said it can provide the Data Center service to its customers with a variety of financial data center cooperation models to fulfill the needs of customers at all stages.
