Certifications from Uptime Institute and Telecommunications Industry Association.
Global technology company NTT has received Uptime Tier III Certificate of Design Documents and the Tier III Certificate of Constructed Facility for its fifth data centre at Cyberjaya Campus, Cyberjaya 5 (CBJ5) in Malaysia.
In addition, CBJ5 has achieved the TIA-942 Rated-3 certification by EPI, the only ANSI/TIA-942 CAB (Conformity Assessment Body) authorized under the official TIA-942 Accreditation Scheme.
The UPTIME Tier III certificates mean CBJ5 meets the performance and reliability requirements for around-the-clock operations and efficiently operate without any shutdowns, ensuring maximum level of safety and security for optimum performance. Its TIA-942 Rated-3 certificate confirms that CBJ5 can undergo any planned maintenance without downtime or disruption to its operations.
Zulkarnain Mohd Yasin chief regulatory officer at Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) strengthens the region as a business and economic hub while contributing to the new digital initiative, MyDIGITAL, which aims to transform Malaysia into a regional leader in digital economy.
“NTT in Malaysia has been successfully operating the Cyberjaya campus data centre for over 24 years,” he said. “The recognitions and achievement reflect the exceptional standards that NTT has always worked towards.”
CBJ5 was awarded the certifications following a rigorous inspection of the facilities and operations by Uptime Institute and EPI upon its completion in February 2021. Furthermore, CBJ5 meets other global standard practice such as Payment Card Industry and Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Threat and Vulnerability Risk Assessment (TVRA), and Data Centre Risk Assessment (DCRA) which was carried out based on Bank Negara Malaysia’s (BNM) Risk Management in Technology (RMiT) framework.
