What work is Telin currently engaged in to deliver next-gen services through partner CDNs?
Telin is the part of Telkom Group that is responsible for international business, and is currently engaging with two Content Delivery Network players – EdgeCast and Conversant.
However, we are deploying more than 14 nodes on all over Indonesia, and will soon become the biggest CDN provider in Indonesia in our own right.
Telin will have 3 Super Points of Presence (PoPs) in Jakarta, Surabaya and Batam, each offering connection speeds of more than 10 Gbps.
With these points of presence, Telin will provide the biggest CDN network in Indonesia to fulfil the content delivery requirements of our potential customers.
What advantages and disadvantages have you identified for this approach?
Through its partnerships, Telin will have advantages to faster deployment of CDN coverage either domestic or International.
Telin will have capability to work side-by-side with CDN providers that have already started operating CDN services, and marketing and sales teams will be prepared to accelerate expansion of the business.
The disadvantage of this partner-led approach is the risk of not choosing the right partner for jointly deploying CDN services, but this issue has been reduced by doing a very comprehensive evaluation of prospective partners.
Can you tell us more about Telin’s recent data centre initiatives?
Telin has a Tier-3 specification datacenter in Singapore right now, which has the capability to serve potential customers with hosting, colocation, security and also cloud services.
Powered by its CDN service, Telin’s datacenter will be the most attractive data centre there and will be ready to provide all services needed.
Besides Singapore, Telin also has a cooperation with SIGMA to provider data centre services to the domestic market in Indonesia, and also has plans to build several data centres in the other countries.
How do you plan to expand and develop Telin’s CDN services in future?
Telin’s CDN service will be expanding to cover the entire region in which Telin has a footprint, in addition to the existing branches in Singapore and Hong Kong.
With this CDN service, Telin will have the capability to deliver video services, games, applications and other content with more cost effective and enhanced customer Quality of Experience.
