TM has started migrating its Unifi customers to private IP to allow more seamless connectivity and better security.
As there is rapid growth of Internet usage, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) worldwide are facing the exhaustion of IPv4 addresses.
The migration involves customers subscribing to Unifi 30Mbps, 50Mbps and 100Mbps plans and are currently on dynamic public IPv4 Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
“These customers are being migrated to private IPs, which will enable them to experience seamless connectivity in a more secure environment,” TM said in a statement today.
The implementation will be executed remotely and customers are not required to perform any action at their end.
Whereas for those customers who are using CCTV IP-Based and known hosting will not be impacted as they will be excluded from the migration exercise.
TM added that this activity is currently ongoing, with minimal downtime (if any) of merely two to five minutes.
After the completion of the migration, TM said it guarantees customers’ internet performance will not be affected and it will notify impacted customers in advance
“We trust this exercise will provide our Unifi customers with enhanced security when browsing the Internet or utilising any online tools and applications.
“At TM, we are constantly upgrading and improving our product offerings to meet the changing needs and usage patterns of our customers in all segments,” it added.
