Opened in partnership with CMC Telecom, one of the country’s leading telecommunication service providers, the new PoP will serve one of the fastest growing IP markets in Asia, providing high performing IP Transit and Ethernet services to local ISPs and content providers.
Fully interconnected with Sparkle’s Tier 1-grade Global IP backbone Seabone, with access to the most important submarine cables connecting Asia to Europe – such as SEA-ME-WE 5 - the new PoP in Vietnam marks a further expansion of Sparkle’s reach across Asia, adding to the existing PoPs in Singapore, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur.
Furthermore, Sparkle launches a new multi-service PoP in Singapore. Located at Global Switch’s data center, one of the most important telecommunications and internet ecosystems in Asia, the new PoP is designed to serve both the local and the global IP markets, providing high performing IP Transit, DDos mitigation and virtual NAP services to operators, OTTs and content providers.
Leveraging on Global Switch’s access to all sub-sea cable systems landing in Singapore - including SEA-ME-WE 3, SEA-ME-WE-4 and SEA-ME-WE-5, of which Sparkle is a consortium member – the new PoP will provide top quality east and west bound low latency connectivity solutions on the submarine route connecting Asia to Europe. In particular, access to the new generation SEA-ME-WE 5, which is natively extended to Sparkle Sicily Hub consolidates Sparkle’s role as leading European doorway for the Asian market.
