PT Telkom unit clinches Jurong site in Singapore to build data centre hub

TELEKOMUNIKASI Indonesia International Pte Ltd (Telin Singapore), a subsidiary of PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia, has been awarded the first plot of land at Singapore's Data Centre Park (DCP) by Jurong Town Corporation (JTC) for the development of a data centre and telecommunication hub.

The new facility, resting on an 8,000-square-metre site, will strengthen Telin Singapore's infrastructure to support PT Telkom Indonesia's growth and international network expansion to meet customers' growing demand.

Construction of the 20,000 square metre purpose-built data centre facility will start in 2015 and the centre is expected to start supporting its customers in the fourth quarter of 2016.

The Telin Data Centre and Telecommunication Hub will be connected directly to Indonesia via its wholly-owned submarine cable systems.

DCP is a joint initiative between the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and JTC. DCP is part of Singapore's effort to strengthen its position as an infocomm and media hub to attract multinationals, enterprises and Internet and media companies to host their content and services in the island nation.
