) LIMA Estate, the top-selling and largest privately-owned industrial park in the Philippines, has tapped PLDT Enterprise to roll out fiber connectivity within its 794-hectare industrial-anchored development in Lipa-Malvar, Batangas.
LIMA Estate is a mixed-use development zone that hosts 130 locators, 167 retail stores and restaurants, a 138-room 4-star hotel, a transportation hub, and holds over 2,000 households. It also employs over 60,000 employees.
PLDT Enterprise will provide solutions and services to support the connectivity requirements in the area. These include Smart postpaid plans, mobile number portability (MNP), and ePLDT services such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), cloud, and cybersecurity services.
Dennis Magbatoc, AVP and Corporate Relationship Management Head of PLDT Enterprise, said that the fiber rollout would provide high-speed internet, both wired and wireless connectivity, inside the industrial estate’s existing offices and Enterprise locators.
“This project will also provide significant benefits to the Estate’s tenants and residents, giving them high capacity for their voice, data and Internet connectivity needs including access to Cloud services,” Magbatoc said.
“We are excited to partner with LIMA Estate as it endeavors to enable fast and reliable Internet connection within their vicinity. We share Aboitiz InfraCapital’s vision to strengthen their network infrastructure to allow efficient and secure telecommunication that is needed to open up new possibilities for LIMA Estate’s future growth,” the PLDT Enterprise executive added.
PLDT Enterprise will also activate a new Smart LTE Site that will be upgraded to 5G in the first quarter of 2022.
Currently a thriving industrial-anchored estate, LIMA Estate’s developer and operator Aboitiz InfraCapital envisions it to be the next leading mixed-use economic center in the CALABARZON region. It targets to accommodate business process outsourcing companies, dormitories, hotels, schools, hospitals, and other establishments in the coming years.
LIMA Land Vice President for Operations Clifford Academia expressed his gratitude to PLDT Enterprise for their support in enabling connectivity solutions and services essential for the growth and expansion of businesses within the economic zone.
“With this fiber rollout, we are assured of high-quality and reliable internet access for businesses, as well as for homes in the area. With the assistance of PLDT Enterprise, we will have an even greater experience at LIMA as we provide network redundancy, keeping communications services constantly up and running in the premises with little to no downtime,” said Academia.
“This will greatly benefit the requirements of our existing industrial locators as well as the future users in both the industrial expansion and fast-growing Central Business District, especially with the anticipated influx of BPO companies in LIMA Tower One,” he added.
PLDT Enterprise has been assisting various companies and institutions in expanding their network infrastructure.
