Equinix (News - Alert), a provider of global data center services and telecom platform deployment solutions, has just revealed that PT Telekomunikasi (News - Alert) Indonesia International (Telin) has selected Platform Equinix in Singapore and Hong Kong as its global partner.
Telin has deployed Equinix’s International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers in Singapore (SG1) and Hong Kong (HK1). The solution will help Telin deploy telecom platforms to offer secure and multi-venue connectivity to its customers in Asia Pacific.
“In today’s increasingly connected world, businesses see high-performance network connectivity as a critical enabler of competitive advantage in the global economy,” said Andrew Oon, business development director, networks and content for Equinix Asia Pacific, in a statement.
“Our global footprint and high quality of security, service and high-speed connectivity across multiple markets will help Telin build its networks and innovate for the future.”
Telin is a member of the consortium that owns the Asia-America Gateway (News - Alert) (AAG) cable network, which connects Southeast Asia and the United States. As a result of the growing bandwidth demand, the cable network will undergo an upgrade that is expected to be completed by Q4 2012, allowing Telin to provide bandwidth capacity at a minimum of 180 Gbps to its customers.
Additionally, the company will also join the upcoming South East Asia-Japan Cable (SJC) consortium, which will be in service by 2013.
Telin’s participation in the Equinix Marketplace provides the company with access to more than 4,000 networks, enterprises, cloud and content service providers across the region and the globe and helps it to improve various telecom platform deployment ventures.
In addition to Singapore and Hong Kong, Telin also has a U.S. presence with Equinix in its Los Angeles (LA1) and Silicon Valley (SV8) data centers. The partnership with Equinix will enable Telin to experience the direct benefits of access to an established, network-dense and highly secure ecosystem, powered by high connectivity and low latency.
“The proliferation of communications devices and applications is driving the need for advanced telecom infrastructures to host and transmit data. To meet this demand, we need to constantly evolve our networks and service offerings,” S.P. Natigor Sitorus, chief marketing officer, Telin, added. “We chose to work with Equinix because they help to broaden our services and provide easy access to customers and global partners, as well as increase the quality of interconnectivity across an extensive digital supply chain.”
