Epsilon has today announced that it has partnered with SEAX Singapore to establish its first point of presence (PoP) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The partnership enables Epsilon customers and partners to remotely peer in Malaysia and interconnect at the new PoP using Epsilon’s Infiny software-defined networking (SDN) platform.

Service providers and enterprises in Malaysia will gain on-demand access to an interconnected mesh of over 100 data centres, global cloud service providers (CSP) and major internet exchanges (IX) on Epsilon’s global network fabric. With Infiny, users can provision a suite of high-performance connectivity and intelligent communications services via a web-based portal, APIs and mobile apps.

“Malaysia is a rapidly growing economy focused on the transformation of digital infrastructure and ecosystems. With the launch of our new PoP in Kuala Lumpur, our customers and partners can now interconnect with local service providers to support their customers’ growth across the region. We are also bringing new connectivity options for service providers and enterprises in Malaysia to connect regionally and globally on-demand using Infiny,” said Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO at Epsilon (pictured).

“Together with SEAX, we are excited to extend our presence into this dynamic market to supercharge the growth of Malaysian businesses and we look forward to continuing this partnership.”

Epsilon will connect its new infrastructure in the Menara AIMS facility in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to its Singapore network and onwards to international locations. Situated within the central business district in the capital city, the Menara AIMS facility is leading data centre in Malaysia which houses over 40 service providers. The service is slated to be ready from May 2019.

Louis Teng, chief marketing officer at SEAX Singapore, added: “We are pleased to partner with Epsilon to support their expansion in the region and add new value to their customers across the globe. Malaysian enterprises and service providers now have the power of connectivity at their fingertips. They can use Infiny to scale their business operations with on-demand access to Epsilon’s global network fabric. Our partnership with Epsilon reinforces our position as the preferred partner of choice in the region.”

Last month, Epsilon partnered with NL-ix, a pan-European interconnect exchange to, to provide on-demand access to its internet exchange point (IXP).
