sin1Data center Information

Singapore is a critical location in VPLS’ continued expansion into Southeast Asia because it is the epicenter of technology and a major fiber landing point connecting the East and West. VPLS chose Global Switch’s facility in order to bring us closer to our major private peering partners such as China Telecom. Our Singapore data center offers increased bandwidth capabilities to customers in Thailand, Indonesia, Hong Kong and China as well as the entire Southeast Asia region. Singapore is also a great location for backup and disaster recovery services for our customers in Thailand.
