Telekomunikasi Indonesia International Pte Ltd (Telin Singapore) and Super Sea Cable Networks Pte Ltd (SEAX), announced a strategic partnership to offer high capacity, low latency domestic network solutions in Singapore.

The partnership will help regional operators enjoy a more diverse footprint in Singapore whilst meeting the increasing demands for bandwidth in the region.

With SEA Cable Exchange-1 (SEAX-1) landing in Tanah Merah (Singapore) coupled with Telin Singapore's scalable, diverse and protected dark fibre ring connecting Telin Singapore's carrier-neutral Data Centers and carrier hotels in Singapore, operators will enjoy seamless connectivity in the region.

Scheduled to launch in Q1 2018, SEAX-1 is a 250km high-speed, large capacity, 24-fibre pair undersea fibre optic cable that will connect Mersing (Malaysia), Changi (Singapore), and Batam (Indonesia).

With SEAX-1 landing in Telin-2 and Telin-3 Data Centers, Telin Singapore's flagship Data Centers coupled with virtual Data Centers connect to Indonesia and regional countries to provide digital products and services.

Super Sea Cable Networks CEO Joseph Lim says, “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.

“This is in line with the ASEAN Co-operation'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 realising this.

Super Sea Cable Networks is a telecommunication-based infrastructure company focused on creating a paradigm shift in how wholesale telecommunication data business is done in the emerging markets in South East Asia (SEA).

SEAX's commitment to bring an unprecedented amount of submarine cable capacity into the region and vision to facilitate submarine cable system ownership amongst carriers aims to act as a catalyst of change and economic growth in the region.

Telin Singapore CEO says, “This strategic partnership with SEAX will enhance our capabilities at Telin-3 Data Center and Telecommunication Hub offering both seamless domestic and global connectivity for our customers.

“This will also strengthen our commitment to provide reliable, secure and seamless regional and global telecommunications connectivity services to meet the increasing demand for bandwidth capacity, colocation and critical IT infrastructure services in this region.

Telin Singapore currently manages flexible, modular and scalable data center facilities and domestic fibre networks in Singapore.
