The partnership makes SGIX available to STT GDC’s customers across its six data centre facilities in Singapore through metro links.

ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC) partnered with Singapore Internet Exchange Ltd (SGIX) to augment internet interconnectivity in the country with the launch of a SGIX point of presence (PoP) in STT Tai Seng 1, an announcement revealed.

With SGIX in STT Tai Seng 1, STT GDC’s customers will be able to peer with its members and benefit from improved traffic routing performance and cheaper Internet traffic exchange.

“SGIX continues to strive and promote efficient exchange of Internet traffic with the objective of lowering interconnectivity costs and improving our peering members’ network performance,” SGIX Chairman Patrick Scodeller said.

Located in eastern Singapore, STT Tai Seng is a co-location facility hosting network service providers, digital media and content providers, and submarine cable systems.

“The advent of latest technologies like Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AIT) further escalates the critical need for reliable and efficient data flows,” STT GDC group chief marketing officer Chris Street commented.

The partnership makes SGIX available to STT GDC’s customers across its six data centre facilities in Singapore through metro links.
