BANGALORE, INDIA, 29 May 2013 – Pacnet, a leading provider of integrated and full-service network and data solutions to the Enterprise, and Carrier customer segments in the Asia Pacific region, today announced that it has completed the deployment of a Content Delivery Network (CDN) Point of Presence (PoP) in Bangalore.
The new PoP complements its existing CDN PoP in Mumbai, which was deployed in 2012. By deploying more CDN PoPs across Asia-Pacific, 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. Pacnet also has access to a worldwide footprint through its CDN federation partners in Europe and the United States.
“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. “It also marks the successful installation of our 10 self-owned and managed CDN PoPs throughout Asia Pacific.”
Pacnet’s service portfolio includes extensive MPLS and International Private Line coverage throughout India, Asia-Pacific, North America, and Europe along with interconnected data centers in most major markets in the region. Over the past several months, Pacnet has announced a new data center build in Singapore, the opening of its facility in Chongqing, China, and an expansion of its Sydney, Australia facility. The company also announced an investment into its sub-sea fiber networks to build a 100Gbps network, and an expansion of its IP VPN license in China.
“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.”
