Singapore to Hong Kong to Los Angeles: Enterprise Customers will Access Trans-Pacific Capacity via Megaport's Global Software Defined Network
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 16, 2017 /CNW/ -- Megaport (USA), Inc, the US subsidiary of Megaport Limited (ASX: MP1) ("Megaport"), the global leading provider of Elastic Interconnection services, today announced a new route for customers, connecting Hong Kong to Los Angeles and a secondary path from Singapore to Hong Kong to meet high customer demand.
As with all Megaport enabled infrastructure, consumption will be based on cloud computing models, including month-to-month services. Through this link, enterprise customers can now access trans-pacific capacity via Megaport's global Software Defined Network. This means that Megaport customers can now link services including cloud connections, Point to Points, and remote peering between Hong Kong, Singapore, and the U.S., without requiring a physical presence in all locations.
"This link represents a great step forward for Megaport from a growth standpoint as we not only are enabling a secondary path between Singapore to Hong Kong to keep up with demand, but are also linking two of our key markets," said Denver Maddux, CEO, Megaport. "Through this new route, we are able to bring together Megaport's backbone in Asia and our terrestrial network in North America, therein providing a more immersive network and a richer fabric through the increased number of customers, partners, and providers on the combined footprint."
For enterprise customers in Asia Pacific and North America, this link enables Megaport to provide greater value by expanding each regional footprint and allowing for two key markets to be connected. Customers can directly connect to Amazon Web Services, Google, Microsoft Azure, and more cloud service providers through Megaport partnerships.
This launch comes at the heels of another recent announcement, wherein Megaport enabled transatlantic capacity for customers through an innovative partnership with Aqua Comms Limited, the owner/operator of AE Connect, a 13TB undersea cable connecting New York, Dublin, and London. This link went live on 12th January, 2017.
