PT Telkom subsidiary Telin Singapore has entered a strategic partnership with Super Sea Cable Networks (SEAX) to offer high capacity, low latency domestic network solutions in Singapore.
The partnership is expected to help regional operators enjoy a more diverse footprint in Singapore whilst meeting the increasing demands for bandwidth in the region.
The SEA Cable Exchange-1 (SEAX-1) will land in in Tanah Merah (Singapore) and be coupled with Telin Singapore’s scalable and protected dark fiber ring connecting Telin Singapore’s carrier neutral data centers and carrier hotels in Singapore.
Scheduled to launch in Q1 2018, SEAX-1 is a 250km high-speed, large capacity, 24-fiber pair subsea cable that will connect Mersing (Malaysia), Changi (Singapore), and Batam (Indonesia).
“SEAX is pleased to partner with Telin Singapore in providing our customers with high-capacity submarine cable connectivity to implement its plan to be one of the leaders in ASEAN to establish an ASEAN broadband corridor,” SEAX CEO Joseph Lim said.
“This is in line with the ASEAN’s ICT focus, which is expected to be an engine of growth for the region. The partnership with Telin Singapore, a member of Telkom Indonesia Group, is a step closer to realizing this.”
