SUPERLOOP MOVES AT SUPERSPEED
Written on the 8 July 2015
SINGAPORE is almost a-go for Superloop Limited (ASX: SLC), with the Brisbane telco constructing more than 90km of an approximately 110km fibre optic network planned for the region.
The remainder of the initial Singapore network is expected to be completed later this quarter.
Once complete, customers will be able to connect to Global Switch, Equinix SG1, SG2, SG3, Digital Realty (Jurong), Katong and Tuas Cable Landing Stations on a fully geographical diverse network.
This means connections between major data centres and submarine cable landing stations.
On the home front, SLC is pleased to report its Brisbane and Melbourne core networks are now practically complete and serving customers. The primary fibre path in Sydney is also active with only the redundant path yet to be constructed, being scheduled for completion later this quarter.
When Australian construction is completed, SLC will provide connectivity to more than 34 data centres in the Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne markets.
SLC CEO Daniel Abrahams (pictured) says the company is currently celebrating a significant milestone.
"This is an important milestone for the company and represents the first time Superloop has activated services for customers in both Singapore and Australia," says Abrahams.
The newly established infrastructure provider is in the process of building an independent dark fibre network connecting key points of presence in key Asian markets.
SLC's initial key assets include a 15-year exclusive right to a 130km fibre network within Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne connecting many of the key data centres within those metropolitan areas.
