Epsilon, a global provider of connectivity, has partnered with SEAX, a provider, owner, operator, and partner of neutral ICT infrastructure, to boost its presence in Southeast Asia. The new partnership allows Epsilon’s partners and customers to connect with the fast growing market of Indonesia, as well as with SEAX points of Presence (PoP) located in Malaysia and Singapore.
With the increasing demand of customers for connectivity to Indonesia, Epsilon is expanding its reach for customers, as well as helping SEAX customers gain access to an evolving ecosystem through its Network as a Service (NaaS) platform, Infiny. SEAX’s infrastructure links Southeast Asia with further connectivity with fiber backhaul networks and subsea cable systems including SEAX-1 cable, along with onward connectivity with more than 30 subsea cables in Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
“Working with SEAX helps us to take our regional connectivity to new places and provide our partners and customers with seamless interconnection between Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia through Infiny,” said Warren Aw, Managing Director, Asia-Pacific at Epsilon. “We are excited to be growing our partnership with SEAX as we continue to expand network footprint to meet rising customer demands. With rapid adoption of digital services and application in Southeast Asia, the time is right for us to enable businesses in this region to connect on-demand to the digital infrastructure they need.”
Having a population of more than 677 million people, Southeast Asia has a rapidly growing digital economy and nearly 400 million internet users. Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore serve as key markets for Epsilon as demand for network connectivity are driven by increased consumption of digital services, for example, food delivery and e-commerce. The bilateral partnership allows SEAX to use Infiny to deliver on-demand connectivity to the Epsilon global private network, while Epsilon enables high-capacity network services through SEAX’s PoP located in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore.
“Our continued partnership with Epsilon epitomises the commitment both companies have to providing a better customer experience when interconnecting across the region,” said Louis Teng, Chief Executive Officer at SEAX. “SEAX existing network infrastructure and Infiny’s platform are complementary in nature. This partnership will enable both SEAX and Epsilon to provide our customers with scalable, private, secure and direct connectivity to a growing ecosystem of data centres, cloud service providers and internet exchanges and we’re pleased to be able to work hand in hand with Epsilon to value add to both our customers and theirs. We look forward to seeing what’s next for our ongoing partnership.”
