Epsilon completes Singapore fibre roll-out
27 August 2015 |
Epsilon has rolled out fibre infrastructure in Singapore in a bid to strengthen its local reach for cloud and communication service provider customers across Asia-Pacific.
The company will use local fibre infrastructure to connect data centre sites – including Global Switch, Equinix, Keppel DigiHub, 1-Net and Digital Realty – and enterprises to its global network.
“Singapore has emerged has a hub for cloud services in the Asia-Pacific region and we are using the most robust and reliable infrastructure available to serve growing demand for cloud,” said Jerzy Szlosarek, COO at Epsilon.
“By rolling out new fibre infrastructure, we are extending our capabilities and offering cloud service providers a unique business model that matches their need for agility, reach and performance in their network.”
Epsilon’s network leverages the infrastructure of 500+ network operators, as well as its own network technologies, and today’s deployment follows the company’s roll-out of a 100G backbone network in Europe last year.
“The future is on-demand network infrastructure that is ready to serve the needs of the cloud,” said Andreas Hipp, Epsilon CEO.
“This fibre roll-out will enhance our connectivity to local data centres and enterprise locations while also supporting our solutions for customers connecting their cloud services. We see Asia-Pacific as a key driver for growth in cloud and Singapore as a major global hub for cloud services.”
