Connecting to Indonesia through TCX AWS has never been easier!

Posted by Briana from Telin on Mar 28, 2022 5:35:02 PM


In an era of digital transformation, more and more enterprises are deciding that they want to direct connectivity to the cloud.  Research from IDG Cloud Computing Survey found that 59% of tech buyers said they planned to be “mostly” (43%) or “all” (16%) in the cloud in 18 months, up from 38% who say they are mostly or all in the cloud today.

Compared to in house hosting cloud based hosting, enterprises are increasingly running hybrid, multisite and/or multi cloud service environments. According to The Information, Trends in Cloud Adoption – 2021, 45% of organizations are using two to three cloud service infrastructure providers. 


Enterprises Are Increasing Moving to Cloud Exchanges

Outsourcing connectivity to cloud service providers can  increase operational flexibility, agility and cost savings while delivering better performance, ongoing security and even potentially improving compliance. With cloud, for example, even small businesses can have access to enterprise-level security.  But, with multiple cloud providers involved, the situation still has the potential to create complexity.

Enter cloud exchange solutions to streamline these relationships. Enterprises  can use cloud exchange platforms to simplify their networking requirements and cloud architectures, with all the benefits that this implies for global exchange of cloud resources.

A cloud exchange works by connecting an enterprise directly to a variety of cloud providers networks. The cloud exchange provider acts as a one-stop digital transformation solution that ensures smooth, stable direct connectivity to multiple cloud service networks through colocation services. Instead of dealing with each network provider separately, enterprise customers can simply go through a single cloud exchange.   

Moving your WAN network to a cloud exchange delivers multiple benefits, namely :

  • Increased Reliability
  • Better Security
  • Reduced Cost
  • Increased Flexibility


Why is Telin teaming up with AWS?

For over 15 years, Amazon Web Services has been the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud offering. Telin is proud to strengthen its relationship with AWS as part of Telin’s  development into a Global Hub, in line with Telin’s commitment to delivering excellent service and value add to its customers.

Millions of customers—including the fastest-growing startups, largest enterprises, and leading government agencies—trust AWS to power their infrastructure, become more agile, and lower costs. 

Most recently, in early December 2021, AWS launched The AWS Region in Jakarta, Indonesia The official name is Asia Pacific (Jakarta) and the API name is ap-southeast-3. The AWS Asia Pacific (Jakarta) Region is the tenth active AWS Region in Asia Pacific and mainland China following Beijing, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Ningxia, Osaka, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo.

Meanwhile, Telin and its parent company Telkom are the leading provider of digital connectivity and related services in Indonesia. The synergy between AWS and Telin therefore makes sense as an effort to better serve enterprises in Indonesia through global cloud exchange colocation and  business exchange solutions.


Introducing Telin Cloud eXchange (TCX)

Enterprises looking for a robust and reliable cloud exchange provider now have the option of Telin Cloud eXchange (TCX). Offered in cooperation with AWS, TCX is a high-quality solution managed service backed by Telin’s excellent track record, that offers direct connectivity to the public cloud in a faster, efficient and more secure manner.

Specifically, TCX managed services enable customers to quickly establish a private, low-latency network connectivity from their premises to AWS. Using MPLS as a virtual private network, customers can expect greatly reduced data transit time between routers compared with other IP routing providers, while also reducing costs on two fronts. 

It works like this: first, by transferring data to and from AWS directly, customers can reduce their bandwidth commitment to their internet service provider. Second, all data transferred over  a customer’s dedicated connection is charged at the reduced AWS Direct Connect data transfer rate rather than internet data transfer rates.

Service for this on-demand hosted direct connectivity model is available at various bandwidth options, while a fast-provisioning process lets customers add multiple connections for more capacity.

Meet your needs with easy-to-scale connection. We provide connections starting from 50mbps, and multiple connections for more capacity with a fast provisioning process. 



Experience a much shorter data sending process between routers unlike any IP-routing you know. Using MPLS, a virtual private network, we make everything faster, more efficient, and secure. 



You can use our service to establish a private virtual interface from your on-premise network directly to your Amazon VPC, providing you with a private, high bandwidth network connection between your network and your VPC. With multiple virtual interfaces, you can even establish private connectivity to multiple VPCs while maintaining network isolation.
