Colt Launches Ethernet Services in Singapore over its New Metro Network
Singapore version of next-generation Ethernet service “etherXEN”
newly added to Colt’s service portfolio
Hong Kong and Singapore, 18 January 2016 – Colt announced today that it has launched “etherXEN SG,” an expansion of its next-generation Ethernet Service available in Japan, over its newly constructed metropolitan network in Singapore. etherXEN is an ultra low latency and high quality Ethernet service that Colt has provided in the Greater Tokyo and Osaka metropolitan areas in Japan since 2013, which delivers compatibility with cloud and data centre services and at higher bandwidth requirements. Leveraging a total of 48 metropolitan area networks across Europe and Asia, including this new network in Singapore, Colt is focused on satisfying the end-to-end network connectivity requirements of multinational businesses with offices in these metropolitan areas.
With network redundancy across the entire core backbone, Colt will have end-to-end service control and operations for etherXEN SG. In addition, etherXEN SG complies with MEF Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (“MEF CE 2.0”) guidelines to ensure that network specifications and quality match those of international standards. etherXEN SG is offered on a flexible contract model with a three-month minimum contract term and its service quality is backed by additional service level agreement (“SLA”) parameters such as service delivery, MTTR (Mean Time to Recovery) and packet loss.
“After much work, Colt has obtained its FBO (Facility-based Operator) license to expand its etherXEN services portfolio and provide local network services in Singapore,” said Paul Kondo, Head of Asia of Colt Technology Services Co., Ltd. “Obtaining this license is a reflection of Colt’s commitment to Asia, and Singapore in particular, and it supports our business strategy in providing deep metropolitan coverage in major business centres in Europe and Asia.”
etherXEN SG is available in the following service configurations: “guaranteed bandwidth,” “burstable bandwidth,” “shared bandwidth” and as a connectivity service to AWS Direct Connect. All service configurations provide price competitiveness and guaranteed high quality of service.
