Out of hundreds of applicants, 25 participants were selected to participate in the ‘Explore the World of Network Infrastructure’ course for the first intake.

“We are deeply committed to empowering Malaysians with the skills and knowledge to thrive in the digital age. This is just the beginning, and we look forward to hosting more sessions in the future to benefit more individuals,” said Ong.

In collaboration with Forward College, the training programme covers essential topics, including IP Network and Systems Operations, routing, BGP, RPKI, ROA, AS-SET, and peering. Participants gain hands-on experience with DNS, DNSSEC, traffic monitoring and analysis, NMS and DDoS prevention strategies.

The training programme, designed for recent graduates and professionals from local companies, aimed to equip individuals with the necessary skills to effectively manage and optimise network infrastructure, ensuring robust, secure and efficient internet connectivity.

Meanwhile, Forward College co-founder and CEO Howie Chang said that the overwhelming response from applications serve as indication of the programme’s importance and the demand for such education in Malaysia’s rapidly evolving digital landscape.

“Working alongside MyIX allows us to contribute meaningfully to the development of Malaysia’s digital infrastructure talent,” he said. “This programme not only equips participants with theoretical knowledge but also practical skills that are immediately applicable in the workforce.”

MyIX is a pivotal player in Malaysia’s digital landscape, operating as the primary hub for internet traffic exchange in the country. Established to enhance the country’s internet speed, reliability and security, MyIX continues to play a crucial role in supporting the nation’s digital economy through initiatives like this training programme.

This programme is made possible by MyIX members including, among others, AIMS, CelcomDigi, Maxis, REDtone, TM Technology Services Sdn Bhd, TIME dotCom, U Mobile and YTL.

This initiative, supported by the collective strength of MyIX members, highlights the importance of collaborative efforts in advancing technological education.

As Malaysia continues to evolve digitally, initiatives like these will be crucial in ensuring that the workforce is prepared to meet the challenges and opportunities of the digital age head-on, promising a brighter future for all Malaysians.
