Singtel has launched an optimized internet service promising to provide enterprises with up to ten times faster access to cloud applications.

The operator’s new ConnectPlus Optimized Internet Service provides assured internet connectivity between enterprise’s offices worldwide by taking advantage of the ConnectPlus IP VPN network comprising around 430 PoPs worldwide.

Enterprises can take advantage of the network by connecting their offices worldwide using a hybrid WAN configuration capable of delivering assured, high-performance connectivity, which will also allow enterprises to expose less critical data to attack over the public internet.

The second component of the service is the ConnectPlus Optimised Internet Cloud Access service, which Singtel said can overcome latency problems to boost cloud connection speeds tenfold.

“Many enterprises use the internet to access their applications on public clouds as it is convenient and widely available. However, internet access can be affected by unstable connectivity or latency issues,” Singtel Group Enterprise CEO Bill Chang said.

“With the Singtel ConnectPlus Optimized Internet service, enterprises are not only assured of reliable and secure internet connectivity, they can also raise their productivity by accessing their data and business solutions in the cloud much faster.”
