This week, Indonesia’s telecommunications firm Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom) has announced the launch of a state-of-the-art data center “Telin-3” in Singapore’s Jurong Data Center Park. This facility has been launched through the company’s subsidiary, Telin Singapore.
The company says that the facility occupies 20,000 sq.mt. of space and is designed as a premium data center. It is the first in Singapore to receive Tier-IV design certification from the Uptime Institute. The construction of the facility began in June last year
Arif Prabowo, Vice President for Corporate Communication, Telkom Singapore said :
Telin-3 is designated to absorb the rising demand for a data center in the region.
Our existing data centers, Telin-1 and Telin-2 in Changi, Singapore, have been overwhelmed due to high demand.
Septika N. Widyasrini, Telin Singapore’s CEO said that Telin-3 would also run as a carrier-neutral data center in which Telkom group submarine cable systems are connected via Telin Singapore’s domestic fiber network.
She added :
This well-connected network infrastructure will position Telin-3 as a telecommunications hub as well as a gateway to Indonesia and the rest of the world.
