Telin, the international arm of Indonesia's PT Telkom, has selected Platform Equinix in Singapore and Hong Kong as one of its global partners to provide connectivity to its customers in Asia Pacific.
 
Telin has deployed into Equinix’s International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers in Singapore (SG1) and Hong Kong (HK1).
 
Outside of Asia Pacific, Telin also has a US presence with Equinix in its Los Angeles (LA1) and Silicon Valley (SV8) data centers.
 
The Equinix Marketplace provides access to more than 4,000 networks, enterprises, cloud and content service providers across the globe.
 
Telin is part of the consortium that owns the Asia-America Gateway (AAG) cable network, which connects Southeast Asia and the United States. In response to 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 of at least 180 Gbps to its customers.
 
Telin will also join the upcoming South East Asia-Japan Cable (SJC) consortium, which will be in service by 2013.
 
“The proliferation of communications devices and applications is driving the need for advanced telecom infrastructures to host and transmit data. To meet this demand, we need to constantly evolve our networks and service offerings,” said S.P.Natigor Sitorus, chief marketing officer, Telin.
