Besides universities, 31 polytechnics, 85 college communities, 5 hospitals and 6 government agencies have also subscribed to this project.

With such high-speed connectivity, scientists and researchers will be able to carry out high-impact projects at their respective institutions. Plus, it can also boost the collaboration between local and foreign scientists.

“With MYREN-X, we hope to further boost capacity to 3,200Gbps, which will really improve big-data processing and high-performance computing,” our Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Najib Razak said. 

“In medical research of cancer, it is required to have high-performance computing system that can process up to 26 billion character codes per second, with the aim of reducing the fatality rate among patients,” he added. 

Let’s hope that with fast internet connectivity, more high-impact research can be done and our universities can place better in the world university rankings next year.
