ViewQwest has acquired Macro Lynx Sdn Bhd and residential operations of iHalo starting with selected locations in Central Peninsula Malaysia and Johor Bahru.
The acquisitions are in its continued long-term push to expand its nationwide footprint and ViewQwest’s coverage has increased to nearly 120 residential, business, and commercial sites around the country at the end of 2020.
Apart from ViewQwest’s additional locations in the Klang Valley (including the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Jaya 33, G-Tower, and Mid Valley City), it will now be available in more locations in the south (Pasir Gudang, Johor), central (Cheras, Selangor), as well as the north (Ipoh, Perak) of the peninsula.
Full integration of the customers and operations onto the ViewQwest network is expected to be completed by the end of Q1 2021.
Following the widespread adoption of Work From Home (WFH) policies by many businesses across Malaysia, the new acquisitions broaden the availability of ViewQwest’s premium networking and digital solutions to meet the demanding landscape of the changing working climate.
ViewQwest will make an improved suite of communications, networking and cybersecurity services accessible for corporate clients and small and medium enterprises.
This includes leading-edge technologies such as Software-defined Large Area Networking (SD-WAN), Protected Access Service Edge (SASE), Cloud Connectivity & Protection, Next-Generation Managed Firewalls, Perimeter Defence, and Endpoint Security & Management.
Vignesa Moorthy, Chief Executive Officer of ViewQwest said, “With the acquisition of Macro Lynx, along with iHalo’s residential operations, ViewQwest is set to serve customers in more locales than ever, including the north of Peninsular Malaysia with our entry into Ipoh.
Through the economically challenging past year across the globe and the region, ViewQwest has remained steadfast in its expansion to serve more customers, especially during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) period, when many people are still practising working from home (WFH).”
“Our robust network is designed to offer faster connectivity and a stable connection for students to access e-learning platforms from home. At the same time, customers can enjoy unrivalled connectivity to entertainment content and leisure sites on the internet.
We will be continuously working to integrate and upgrade our network infrastructure, our technical and business operations, our customer fulfilment and support services, and our portfolio of products and services,” Moorthy added.
Once full integration and network upgrades are completed, former Macro Lynx customers will be able to enjoy enhanced solutions for their businesses and former iHalo customers will have the full selection of ViewQwest residential plans and packages.
