Huawei Digital Power Thailand has joined hands with Planet Communications Asia Plc.

As a partner, Huawei will offer the most efficient data centre facilities possible as well as providing our wealth of knowledge and experience to PlanetComm. We believe that this collaboration will greatly benefit Thailand’s data centre market and marks a significant step forward for green data centre trends across Thailand and global industries.”
Mr. Prapat Rathlertkarn, CEO of Planet Communications Asia Plc., punctuated the start of the long-term partnership between the two parties by underlining another significant development in data centre trends in Thailand: “With the Government announcing tax exemptions for businesses related to data centres in Thailand, the demand for data centres has undeniably grown. PlanetComm is looking for a partner that meets our high standards and requirements for data centres. Huawei’s Prefabricated AIO Data centre FusionModule DC 1000A more than meets the level of efficiency and reliability we are looking for. With the same mission and vision, we are very pleased to welcome Huawei into an alliance with PlanetComm and will continue our goal of introducing new technologies to the market in accordance with the increasing needs of data centre trends in Thailand.”

The solution offers higher efficiency, lower carbon emissions, quicker delivery time, a longer lifespan, and better O&M efficiency than traditional data centres.
Mr. Prapat Rathlertkarn added: “In addition to being one of Huawei’s most recent value-added partners, PlanetComm is also an experienced data centre technology provider that stands as one of the most significant players in the data centre market in Thailand, largely thanks to its vast experience with containerised data centres, telemedicine, smart pole for digital cities, Cloud CCTV, and more.
