Epsilon boosts Asia presence through SEAX partnership
Epsilon has expanded its partnership with SEAX allowing its customers and partners to connect into Indonesia, as well as between SEAX points of presence (PoP) in Singapore and Malaysia.
Epsilon said Indonesia is seeing growing demand for connectivity. As such it is tapping SEAX’s infrastructure which extends across Southeast Asia with a fibre backhaul network and subsea cable system including the SEAX-1 cable, and onward connectivity with more than 30 other subsea cables across Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.
In turn, SEAX customers will gain access to an evolving ecosystem via Epsilon's Network as a Service (NaaS) platform, Infiny.
"Working with SEAX helps us to take our regional connectivity to new places and provide our partners and customers with seamless interconnection between Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia through Infiny,” said Warren Aw, MD for the Asia-Pacific region at Epsilon.
“We are excited to be growing our partnership with SEAX as we continue to expand network footprint to meet rising customer demands. With rapid adoption of digital services and application in Southeast Asia, the time is right for us to enable businesses in this region to connect on-demand to the digital infrastructure they need.”
The bilateral partnership enables SEAX to use Infiny to deliver on-demand connectivity over Epsilon global private network, while Epsilon enables high-capacity network services via SEAX’s aforementioned PoPs.
"Our continued partnership with Epsilon epitomises the commitment both companies have to providing a better customer experience when interconnecting across the region,” said Louis Teng, CEO at SEAX.
“SEAX existing network infrastructure and Infiny’s platform are complementary in nature. This partnership will enable both SEAX and Epsilon to provide our customers with scalable, private, secure and direct connectivity to a growing ecosystem of data centres, cloud service providers and internet exchanges and we’re pleased to be able to work hand in hand with Epsilon to value add to both our customers and theirs. We look forward to seeing what’s next for our ongoing partnership.”
