SPTel introduces new solutions for data centres in Singapore

Adrian M. Reodique | May 31, 2016
The solution will be offered to telecommunications carriers, retail service providers, data centres and enterprises.

SPTel - the network arm of the Singapore Power Group (SP) - recently introduced OpticNet and SmartConnect suite of solutions to meet the evolving connectivity and infrastructure needs.

SPTel will offer connectivity and enabling-technologies to telecommunications carriers, retail service providers, data centres as well as to enterprises.

According to Poh Mui Hoon, CEO of SPTel: "SPTel offers its customer and partners a unique proposition. Not only do we own and manage an extremely pervasive fibre network, one that that runs alongside Singapore's powerlines; we also combine the agility and flexibility of a start-up with the strong innovation capabilities backed by our parent company Singapore Power."

SPTel said the OpticNet dark fibre network allows data centres to strengthen their offerings to their customers thus future-proofing emerging companies from InfoComm to e-commerce brands and entrepreneurs.

"InfoComm media are increasingly enabling social and economic transformation," added Poh. "Network innovation is gaining momentum, business applications are more data intensive and require more bandwidth. And, with even more international companies using Singapore as a hub, data centres play an even larger role. With this comes added demand for connectivity, speed, diversity and reliability."

The SmartConnect, on the other hand, combines Ethernet with Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) to optimise the connections of people and businesses or data centres and key interconnection hubs.

Moving forward, SPTel said they will provide customers with bundled services in partnership with providers in other industries.
