Fortesys Distribution now known as just “Fortesys”

Fortesys Distribution has shortened its name to just Fortesys Sdn Bhd to reflect its  ‘strong culture of innovation’. The company is widely known for the delivery of ‘business value’ so that customers enjoy lower TCO (total cost of ownership) and realises effective RoI (return of investment).

Fortesys today has become synonymous with being a leading distributor and solutions partner for total IT Networking Solutions – ranging from structured cabling, data network (wired and wireless), network management, network security, storage area network (SAN) and voice communications – throughout Malaysia and Southeast Asia.


The company, however, is not resting on its laurels and is committed to continue bringing in ‘best practice’ solutions for the benefit of customers, said Fortesys managing director Loh Leh Hui (picture above).

“Demand for networking solutions have been rising rapidly in Malaysia, and set to accelerate even more due to the impending 5G network in the foreseeable future,” he said.

Fortesys has built up a strong reputation for enabling customers to streamline their IT operations with their networking solutions, while transforming infrastructure to be ‘intelligent’ by leveraging on artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies.

“We are proud to be providing top-notch services and endeavour to integrate strategy and adding high value to our valued customers,” said Loh.

“Right from the start, we are motivated to achieve satisfaction for jobs well done while delighting customers along the way. Thus, quality and customer satisfaction rank high on our list of priorities.”

One such happy customer is City Bayview Hotel Georgetown.

TechARP, a reputable technology portal spearheaded by editor-in-chief Dr Adrian Wong, recently ran a comprehensive report about the hotel’s CommScope-RUCKUS network upgrade which you can view here.

Bayview Georgetown started work on a massive RM 1.7 million digitisation project in 2020, which took several months to complete.

A major part of that project involved the complete replacement of their existing network using CommScope-RUCKUS networking products from end-to-end.

As a result, Bayview is now empowered to offer guests fast and reliable Internet connectivity at their hotel.

The hotel’s regional IT Manager Leslie Lim was certainly pleased with the CommScope-RUCKUS end-to-end networking solution implemented by Fortesys partner, Pentech Solution Sdn Bhd.

“City Bayview Hotel Georgetown now has the strong value proposition of fast and reliable internet for all our guests,” said Leslie.

CommScope is renowned for innovating across wired technologies, as well as wireless, to enable superior customer experiences.

The RUCKUS ICX family of fixed form-factor switches work together to simplify network set-up and management, enhance security, minimise troubleshooting and make upgrades easy. The low-latency, non-blocking architecture ensures excellent throughput for the most demanding applications.

ICX switches work seamlessly with RUCKUS Wi-Fi access points, RUCKUS SmartZone network controllers and RUCKUS Cloud to deliver the most performance and cost effective unified wired and wireless access solutions on the market today.

Meanwhile, Bayview Hotel Georgetown is a 340-bed hotel in Georgetown, Penang. It is one of two hotels run by Bayview International Hotels & Resorts, the other being Bayview Beach Resort which is right by the Batu Ferringhi Beach.

While the Bayview Beach Resort is full of tourists, their Georgetown hotel caters more to business travellers who expect fast and reliable Internet connectivity.

They are certainly assured of this benefit, now, thanks to CommScope-RUCKUS and Fortesys’ partnership with Pentech.
