Globe Telecom has expanded its network points-of-presence to Equinix’s Tokyo-2 (TY2) International Business Exchange (IBX) data center to improve network performance and enhance customer experience.

Globe is the first Philippine network carrier to be deployed in Equinix’s Tokyo facilities and can now be directly accessed by other networks and telecommunication service providers inside Equinix’s TY2 data center.

TY2, recognized for its state-of-the-art infrastructure and network density, is strategically located to access multiple subsea cable systems.

Deploying the Globe Telecom network node at Equinix’s TY2 data center will enable an international gateway between the Philippines and the US and help the company meet increasing demand for connectivity services, including International Private Leased (IPL), Ethernet and IP services.

“Japan is an important location for us, and Equinix makes our expansion to strategic global networks possible. The network community can benefit from the efficient and highly resilient connectivity to the Globe Telecom network in order to help meet their customers’ needs,” said Jesus C. Romero, enterprise segments head of Globe Telecom’s Globe Business unit.
