A new Content Delivery Network (CDN) Point of Presence (PoP) has been deployed in Bangalore by Pacnet. Bangalore is the epicentre of India's IT industry and home to many of country's most tech-savvy Internet users and has the nation’s largest number of broadband Internet connections. In March this year it became the first city in India to offer free Wi-Fi hotspots.
The new PoP complements its existing CDN PoP in Mumbai, which was deployed in 2012. By deploying more CDN PoPs across Asia-Pacific, data centre provider Pacnet is able to store and deliver digital content at CDN PoPs in local markets, which accelerates the speed and distribution of content such as rich media and applications to Internet users.
Pacnet deployed two new PoPs in China early this year to increase the performance and speed of digital content delivery in that country.
"The addition of the CDN PoP in Bangalore is one more step we have taken to expand the reach of our CDN service, and accelerate web content to users in the region's two largest markets – India and China,” said Jim Fagan, President of Managed Services, Pacnet.
The company’s service portfolio includes extensive MPLS and International Private Line coverage throughout India, Asia-Pacific, North America, and Europe along with interconnected data centres in most major markets.
"Pacnet has built a robust service portfolio to address the needs of large Enterprise and Carrier companies in India," said Sunanda Das, Managing Director - India, Pacnet. "India has seen explosive growth over the past several years and more-and-more companies are looking to expand their current operations to better support their customers in India and around the world."
