PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia International (Telin), Indonesia's leading telecommunication and network provider, has selected Platform Equinix in Singapore and Hong Kong as one of its global partners to provide secure, reliable and multi-venue connectivity to its customers in Asia Pacific.
This was announced today by Equinix, a provider of global data centre services.
Telin, which operates as the international arm of PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom), is currently deployed in Equinix's International Business Exchange data centres in Singapore (SG1) and Hong Kong (HK1).
Outside of Asia Pacific, Telin also has a U.S. presence with Equinix in its Los Angeles (LA1) and Silicon Valley (SV8) data centres.
Telin is part of the consortium that owns the Asia-America Gateway (AAG) cable network, which connects Southeast Asia and the United States.
"As a result of soaring trans-Pacific bandwidth demand, the cable network will undergo an upgrade that will be completed by Q4 2012, allowing Telin to provide bandwidth capacity at a minimum of 180 Gbps to its customers," the company said. "Telin will also join the upcoming Southeast Asia-Japan Cable (SJC) consortium, which will be in service by 2013."
