- Announces collaboration with Epsilon and KVH

1-NET said it has its enhanced its data centre connectivity network in Singapore via a collaboration with Epsilon and KVH, part of its strategy to interconnect data centres in the region.
The latest collaboration allows 1-Net’s customers to connect 14 key data centres at either a 1G or 10G capacity to drive more business transactions across multiple data centres in Singapore, the company said in a statement.
This also provides customers with more connectivity options and diversified routes between selected data centres, it added.

This interconnected data centre network with Epsilon and KVH will allow customers to drive better business performance through a ‘Data Centre Corridor,’ 1-Net said in its statement.
With this, customers will benefit from lower latency and the ability to connect to network providers, cloud and application providers, as well as content distributors at a lower cost, 1-Net claimed.
The interconnectivity will allow 1-Net’s customers to operate, or ‘peer,’ between the data centres to facilitate the creation of new business models, enabling them to position themselves as partners or intermediaries that offer services to their partners.
The benefits of having an interconnected data centre network are the low latency and availability of high bandwidth for transferring extremely large files, 1-Net said. For instance, most financial services enterprises use low latency connections to ensure high speeds in executing transactions.
“We are happy to announce the expansion of our data centre network with Epsilon and KVH,” said its managing director Wong Ka Vin (pic).
“With the data centre corridor, our customers will be able to leverage the connectivity to other data centres in Singapore and the rest of Asia as they look to expand their business operations in the region, offering them greater flexibility, resiliency and cost reduction,” he added.
A subsidiary of Singaporean media giant MediaCorp, 1-Net currently manages telco-class carrier-neutral Internet data centres, and also provides domestic and international connectivity, managed services and media delivery services.
In November 2014, 1-Net announced a partnership with TCCT and UIH in Thailand to enable connectivity between Singapore and Thailand. Moving forward, 1-Net said it will establish more connectivity partnerships to interconnect the data centres in the region.
1-Net North, an upcoming data centre by 1-Net, was also announced in June 2014 and will be completed in early 2016.
The facility will be Singapore’s first data centre to be certified with Tier III standards for Tier Certification of Design Documents and Tier Certification of Constructed Facility by the Uptime Institute, an independent data centre research, education, and consulting organisation.
