Epsilon has rolled out new fibre infrastructure in Singapore to strengthen its local reach, and support the growth of cloud services in Singapore and across the Asia-Pacific region.

Global communications service provider Epsilon will use local fibre infrastructure to connect data centre sites and enterprise locations to its global network spanning Europe, Middle East, North America and the Asia-Pacific.

The company said it will use fibre infrastructure to connect five additional data centres in Singapore including Global Switch, Equinix, Keppel DigiHub, 1-Net and Digital Realty facilities.

"Singapore has emerged as a hub for cloud services in the Asia-Pacific region and we are using the most robust and reliable infrastructure available to serve growing demand for cloud," said said Jerzy Szlosarek, Chief Operating Officer at Epsilon.

"By rolling out new fibre infrastructure, we are extending our capabilities and offering cloud service providers a unique business model that matches their need for agility, reach and performance in their network," he said.

Epsilon recently deployed a 100G backbone network in Europe, and the company says both the Singapore network and the European infrastructure have been specifically designed to support cloud, content and high-performance communications services.

According to Epsilon, service providers must focus on on-demand infrastructure provision to remain competitive in today's market.

"The future is on demand network infrastructure that is ready to serve the needs of the cloud. This fibre roll out will enhance our connectivity to local data centres and enterprise locations while also supporting our solutions for customers connecting their cloud services. We see Asia-Pacific as a key driver for growth in cloud and Singapore as a major global hub for cloud services," said Andreas Hipp, Chief Executive Officer at Epsilon.
