Completes comprehensive portfolio of CDN solutions in India and Asia Pacific region

Pacnet has completed the deployment of a Content Delivery Network (CDN) Point of Presence (PoP) in Bangalore, the networking company announced on 29 May.

Pacnet is a leading provider of integrated and full-service network and data solutions to the Enterprise, and Carrier customer segments in the Asia Pacific region.

The new PoP complements its existing CDN PoP in Mumbai, which was deployed in 2012. 

By deploying more CDN PoPs across Asia Pacific, Pacnet is able to store and deliver digital content at CDN PoPs in local markets. The company deployed two new PoPs in China early this year to increase the performance and speed of digital content delivery in that country.

"The addition of the CDN PoP in Bangalore is one more step we have taken to expand the reach of our CDN service, and accelerate Web content to users in the region's two largest markets - India and China," said Jim Fagan, president of Managed Services, Pacnet.  "It also marks the successful installation of our 10 self-owned and managed CDN PoPs throughout Asia Pacific."

Over the past several months, Pacnet has announced a new data centre build in Singapore, the opening of its facility in Chongqing, China, and an expansion of its Sydney, Australia facility. The company also announced an investment into its sub-sea fibre networks to build a 100Gbps network, and an expansion of its IP VPN licence in China.
