Singtel introduces Optimised Internet Service globally to provide enterprises with assured internet performance

Service boosts access to cloud applications by up to 10 times faster

Singapore, 30 March 2017 - Singtel today launched ConnectPlus Optimised Internet Service to provide enterprises with secure, reliable and high quality internet connectivity between their offices worldwide. The service also allows enterprises to access cloud applications by up to 10 times faster than conventional internet connectivity.  

Mr Bill Chang, Chief Executive Officer, Group Enterprise at Singtel said, “Many enterprises use the internet to access their applications on public clouds as it is convenient and widely available. However, internet access can be affected by unstable connectivity or latency issues. With the Singtel ConnectPlus Optimised Internet service, enterprises are not only assured of reliable and secure internet connectivity, they can also raise their productivity by accessing their data and business solutions in the cloud much faster.”

The Singtel Optimised Internet Service comprises two features: Singtel’s ConnectPlus Optimised Internet Cloud Access and ConnectPlus Optimised Internet VPN (Virtual Private Network). The ConnectPlus Optimised Internet Cloud Access overcomes latency, providing users with up to 10 times faster access to public cloud applications. The Singtel Optimised Internet VPN empowers enterprises to use the Internet to extend their corporate VPN to branch offices. This allows the branch offices to enjoy secure, fast and reliable business--grade Internet with guaranteed availability and high throughput.

The new service complements Singtel’s extensive ConnectPlus Internet Protocol VPN network of more than 428 Points-of Presence (PoP) around the world. Together, they help global businesses improve productivity by offering a hybrid and ‘cloud-friendly’ Wide Area Network (WAN) solution that connects to their global locations seamlessly. Enterprises can use a hybrid WAN architecture to channel less critical data onto the public internet, and more critical data onto the IP VPN across different geographic regions.
