Technology Park Malaysia Selects Juniper Networks for State-of-the-Art Campus Network

Juniper Networks announced that Technology Park Malaysia Corporation Sdn. Bhd. (TPM) has deployed Juniper products and services in a total revamp of its campus network. This will help TPM attract additional tenants and enable it to generate new revenue streams by offering more application hosting, system management and network services.

TPM, Malaysia’s premier technology park, is accessible to all major universities and research institutions and is currently home to over 160 technology-based companies. TPM offers approximately two million square feet of incubation and business commercialization R&D space and about 400 land parcels for supporting innovative technology based-companies in engineering, information and communications technology, and biotechnology. The company's strategy is to use IT infrastructure as a competitive tool to attract and retain local and foreign entrepreneurs.

“We embarked on our latest IT infrastructure enhancement project to build a world-class campus network, enabling us to provide tenants and strategic partners with a range of high-value, network-based services delivered in compliance with ITIL framework standards,” said YBhg Dato’ Hj. Mohd Azman Hj. Shahidin, president and chief executive officer of Technology Park Malaysia Corporation Sdn. Bhd. “After careful consideration of multiple proposals we selected Juniper’s solution, which combined best-in-class technology with easy management, reasonable pricing and strong support. Implementation of the Juniper solution has delivered a rapid improvement in enterprise-level performance, making IT a strategic enabler for the company.”

During the project implementation by Comintel Sdn. Bhd., a Juniper Elite Network Infrastructure partner, legacy ATM switches in TPM's core network were replaced with Juniper Networks® MX480 3D Universal Edge Routers, which were also deployed in the distribution layer, while MX240 routers are now used for Internet routing.

The co-location data center has been equipped with redundant Juniper Networks EX8208 Ethernet Switches, delivering the port densities, non-blocking performance, scalability and high availability required by the most demanding high-tech clients.

Together with Juniper Networks EX4200 Ethernet Switches deployed within each campus building, the MX480 and MX240 routers and EX8208 switches form a high-performance, highly-resilient and highly-secure MPLS infrastructure. Juniper Networks EX3200 Ethernet Switches, meanwhile, provide TPM's tenants with thousands of power-over-Ethernet LAN ports within its campus buildings.

Almost every network device on the campus – including Juniper Networks IDP8200 Intrusion Detection and Prevention Appliances and a STRM 2500 Security Threat Response Manager – run the Junos® operating system, enabling TPM to benefit from lower network operation costs and integrated network and security management, controlled through Juniper Networks NSMXpress Appliance.

The expandability and virtualization capabilities of the Juniper Networks NetScreen-5400 co-location firewalls enable TPM to operate as a managed service provider (MSP) without the need for additional systems. In addition, Juniper Networks SA6500 VPN Appliances, operating in MSP mode, provide remote access for TPM's tenants.

“Technology Park Malaysia is competing in the top tier for hi-tech tenants on a worldwide basis and that's a real challenge for a property company,” said Wan Ahmad Kamal, Managing Director of Juniper Networks Malaysia. “With the deployment of a next generation carrier-class campus infrastructure based on Juniper, TPM is now fully equipped to operate as state-of-the-art MSP and can offer both internal and external clients a full suite of shared and managed services.”

Companies Are Forced To Walk the Talk

In conjunction with PiPR's 1st birthday recently, I took the opportunity to ask the Managing Director Ms. Lee Ting Ting 5 challenging questions.

What does it feels like become 1 year anniversary?

It’s been just slight more than 12 months, but we feel like we’ve come a long way (just turning one on October 1, 2010). Pi was up with a good start against many other more established PR agencies by managing to gain the trust and retainer accounts of several big IT brands in the local market. This significant to us in wanting to established our own positioning as ‘Your boutique IT PR specialist’ in Malaysia.

How has the PR industry changed over the past few years and what are coming next ?

The PR industry landscape has definitely become more competitive, with more and more players coming into this low-barrier industry. This is why Pi needs to ‘go niche’ – that is to focus on providing IT PR consultancy, instead of spreading it thin by claiming to be a PR expert in all fields. It’s pretty hard to have depth and at the same time command the width/ breath of the market at the same time. It is not impossible, but having a known expertise and continuing to hone that expertise, I figure, is not a bad strategy.

In the foreseeable future, I see the PR folks playing a more critical and strategic role in directly impacting the business. PR is a very powerful marketing tool, as communication of corporate and brand message is a major element in building perception. And we know that Marketing is all about Perception.

Companies with more ‘foresight’ will be able see how they can really leverage PR to gain real competitive edge; and how PR is also a way of imposing corporate ‘self-discipline’ – in the sense that companies are forced to walk the talk they have made in PR communication to their audience. The media watches and monitors – pretty much like a watchdog of sorts…so as much as you want to leverage the media for business advantage (read: branding and marketing your products and services), it can also be a double-edge sword if you cannot fulfill what you have committed publicly through PR.

This is why I think that PR consultants are increasingly conscientious of what they advice on the communication of business concept to their clients. In short, the PR industry will alleviate into a much more ‘professional stature’ with organizations relying on them to more and more to achieve a more respectable, clearer and more definitive position in their markets.

Tell us your best experience in servicing your customers in 2010 ?

There have been several good experiences with the successful delivery of PR briefs in some unconventional ways. However I must say that the common thread in all of the ‘good’ customer servicing experiences is when Pi was recruited really to be an integral part of the corporate strategy – in exercises to help the customer gain specific competitive advantage in their marketplace.

The trust and close interaction that Pi shared with these particular customers (or PR projects) deem it the best experience for us.

Everybody is talking about social media, how has that changed the PR industry ?

Really, there is no escaping the social media. The longer companies try to wait for another solution around having to do social media, the more that they are just wasting precious time.

I am not saying that all companies should dive into social media, as it really depends on their sort of business and market they are playing in. But where and if consumers (or the masses) are involved as your target audience, then you have to get involved in social media.

Pi PR has a very strong social media alliance in which has a fantastic track record of successes in leveraging Web 2.0 for many large IT and non-IT PR/ creative projects. From the work done and in progress, I would say that PR consultants today cannot possible detach themselves from questions such as ‘How could social media play in this (PR) scenario?’, ‘What are the costs of NOT doing social media in this (PR) scenario?’, and ‘How can social media synergize the PR plan I have for this particular brief?’

What would you tell your customers about how they can go to the next level by engaging your service ? What do people generally do not realize ?

I can’t speak for all people in the PR industry, but I am probably the strongest advocate of PR for the technology sector – especially when this industry is so (often) convoluted, confusing, technical, dry, boring and yet so important!

The simple truth is that most IT products, solutions and services bring about a good level of advantages if anybody or any organization invests in it, AND ensures that they know how to get an ROI back from that IT investment. PR comes in, quite unexpectedly, in trying to bridge the many ‘I Can! I Can!’s’ of IT vendors, and the ‘I Want! I Want!’s’ of the mass market.

What an IT vendor CAN do, and what the market WANTs can be bridged by PR. People need to realize this as the often understated role of PR – good PR at least.

PR is never about lying about what a company does, it is not about false impression. PR is really a corporate media service for the articulation of concepts, messages and clarifications – in the most diplomatic and honest manner, which IS the way of the media and what they ideally stand for.

Yes (YTL 4G Mobile Internet) To be Launched on 19 Nov 2010

This is a very interesting promotional video for Yes

It is catchy and Malaysian.

I definitely can't wait to get a Yes ID.

Just wondering how it is going to work ? It will come with a 018 number. So, most likely it is relying on MNP (Mobile Network Portability).

So, YTL Communications was reported to have invested in own network infrastructure consists of base stations and backbone.

And their proposed deadline to have commercial launch is on time.

Refer to previous updates.

However, this time around, they seem to have dropped WiMax out of our consciousness.

System.Runtime.Remoting.RemotingException: Server encountered an internal error

Just technical sharing. No big deal.

if you ever encountered the following exception.

System.Runtime.Remoting.RemotingException: Server encountered an internal error. For more information, turn off customErrors in the server's .config file.

It is tricky, because it is not telling you what actually is the exception about ?

The first thing you need to do is to follow as what it suggested, turn off customError.

How you do that ?

At the code segment which remoting is being used. Insert the following codes.

RemotingConfiguration.CustomErrorsMode = CustomErrorsModes.Off

Once this is done, you can see that the exception generated will be different.

The same error, but shown differently.

In this example, you can see that even though the exception message is still 'Server encountered an internal error', however, the stack trace actually shows more meaningful information.

The problem is 'HandleReturnMessage', and it comes from 'get_Var_MyKey'. 'Var_MyKey' is actually a property, which means that it happens while trying to access the value of the property.

This implies two of either one of the followings:
  1. The object which carries the property is already disposed (collected by garbage collector)
  2. In the context of remoting, even if the object is not disposed, it could be however already expired. If this is the case, you must either resort to using local object or implement object leasing and sponsorship. Refer to Client Server Sample (VB.NET) Using Remoting Version 2

PiPR 1st Aniversary

PiPR, celebrated its first birthday on 1st October 2010.

It is a public relation consulting firm who specializes on the ICT industry.

Pi's clients include SAS Malaysia, SL Information, New Age Porfolio, MTouche, MYREN, Tipping Point and many more.

Public relation is an art by itself. It is also a function in marketing for organizations seeking to build and grow brand values and many more; it is marketing.

PiPR believes that recognition (of value) is equivalent to business growth.

And this is what I believe about PR.

In this age of social media, decision makings can be totally non rational most of the time. People choose to believe in trends and lifestyle ideas which they barely familiar with. Such phenomenon is especially true when it comes to buying technology stuffs.

The fact that technology is about best practices which are created by human. In other words, we can almost conclude that most products will ultimately the same. For this reason, why bother to talk about product differentiation so much ? Your products are expected to be as competitive as others.

So help me out, which product should I buy ?

PiPR, having inculcate the essence of Pi, best fit this role of sorting out answers.

SonicWALL Announces Granular Application Intelligence, Control and Real-Time Visualization for Its Next-Generation Firewalls

SonicWALL, Inc. a leading provider of intelligent network security and data protection solutions, today announced SonicOS 5.8 for its Next-Generation Firewall product lines. This enhances its existing application intelligence and control capabilities by integrating a real-time application visualization dashboard and analysis tools, enabling IT managers to visualize all application traffic and determine application bandwidth consumption based on real-time information. Administrators can immediately control and allocate resources for critical applications and users to drive productivity, while blocking or controlling inappropriate activities. All controls operate on specific applications rather than trying to rely on generic port or protocols often used by stateful packet inspection firewalls.

Policies like 'Facebook but no Farmville, and Facebook only uses less than 10% of connections and bandwidth during business hours' are now possible."

Says Greg Young, vice president of research at Gartner: "Firewalls have traditionally been a binary block/allow model. Stateful inspection firewalls can only control ports and IP addresses, so there is no context for what is in that Web session. Intrusion Prevention Systems can spot malware, but application control in Next-Generation Firewalls can limit or control applications such as social media, and with granularity controlling which activities within a social media are allowed, and can allow critical applications get the bandwidth they need.

Juniper Networks Introduces the Next-Generation Core Router for the New Network

Juniper Networks introduced its next-generation and the industry’s fastest core routing platform, and demonstrated a standards-based 100G core-to-edge network. 100G networking technology is vital to the continued growth of IP-based services and applications, including supporting traffic from wireless and wired broadband devices as well as data-intensive applications, such as cloud computing and collaborative scientific research.

Juniper Networks® T4000 Core Router, powered by the Junos® operating system, provides the scalability and flexibility required to meet rapidly expanding bandwidth requirements, while extending the investment protection of the T Series platform, which is the most widely deployed core routing platform in the world.

As well as meeting the growing needs of service providers around the world, the next-generation high-performance processing innovations of Juniper’s routing portfolio will help usher in a new era of scientific discovery. For example, by connecting to Internet2’s recently announced 100Gbps research network powered by the T Series, scientists accessing the Large Hadron Collider at CERN will be able to accelerate the processing of terabytes of data in the quest to advance our scientific understanding of the universe. The same research network will also increase the data transfer capabilities between the two telescopes of the Gemini Observatory located in Hawaii and the Chilean Andes, allowing astronomers to access skies in both hemispheres simultaneously.

Juniper has been showcasing a live demonstration of the 100G network, during the SC10 Supercomputing 2010, international conference on high-performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, being held this week in New Orleans in the U.S.

Juniper Networks Selected for Next Generation Upgrade of Malaysian Research Network

The Malaysian Research and Education Network (MYREN) - which provides high-capacity broadband to universities, colleges, research organisations and scientific laboratories, has migrated its Phase 2A network infrastructure to a robust Juniper Networks routing solution running the Junos operating system, to scale capacity with increased reliability and pave the way for the expansion of its user base, including more public and private-sector universities, hospitals, polytechnics and community colleges.

Launched in 2005 and funded by Malaysia's federal government, MYREN currently links 68 academic research institutions throughout Malaysia and is linked to national research and education networks in Asia Pacific, Europe and North America. After five years of successful first phase operations, advanced data-intensive applications are driving demand for greater bandwidth across the network, and for advanced networking technologies such as IPv6 and virtualization. MYREN is administered by the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) and connectivity is centralized at a Network Operation Centre in Cyberjaya. Researchers are running data-intensive applications such as video conferencing, digital video transport system (DVTS), data computing, visualization/image modeling and e-learning.

Deployment of Juniper Networks M7i Multiservice Edge Routers at MYREN’s backbone network’s five points of presence in west and east Malaysia and at MYREN's peering point, has enabled migration to high-speed backbone links of up to 1Gbps. The M7i's separate hardware-based routing and forwarding engines drive a high-performance distribution layer MPLS network architecture, with Juniper Networks J6350 Service Routers acting as the provider edge at MYREN-connected campuses. As access links are dictated by MYREN's end users, the J6350 has to handle a variety of L2 and L3 connections, with physical media ranging from optical fibre to microwave transmission.

With the advanced Junos operating system running across the entire infrastructure, network administrators are much better positioned to respond dynamically to the bandwidth and network security requirements of researchers and academics across the extended network.

2 Persons, 2 years To Create Netscape

Netscape was created by Marc Andreessen and Eric Bina. Started development in December 1992 and the first beta were released in 1994.

So, it took about 2 years from nothing to something working.

The success of Netscape was attributed to Eric Bina's 48-hour stints of continuous software development.

In 1998, it was bought over by AOL.

I don't know how did they survive from 1994 to 1998. Maybe they provided consulting.

But I think during those days, Internet was more exciting than now.

4 Persons, 1 Year to Create Google Maps

Google Maps was created by Lars_Rasmussen, who is now working for Facebook.

In 2003, Lars and his brother, together with two more persons, took about 1 year to create the software which is Google Map today before it was bought over by Google (in October 2004).

Google Map for Malaysia's maps was only available since December 2007 and probably a year earlier for Singapore.

So, imagine you are an entrepreneur.

You will need a team to develop a prototype, promising enough to be bought over by investor one year later and then 3 years later make it available to the market. It is still about 4 years projection.

Client Server Sample (VB.NET) Using Remoting Version 2

Refer to version 1.

This is an enhanced version which is better.

This version is still single server and multi-client.

In this version, both client and server will expose remoting interfaces and connect to each other. This is the best practice.
