Internet for a Better Connection Stability

Posted by Briana from Telin on Sep 28, 2020 11:51:00 AM

Internet connection has become essential for more than half the world’s population. More than 4.57 billion people around the world now use the internet - close to 60% of the world's total population. While the latest data showing that more than 346 million new users came online prior July 2020, equivalent to an average increase of almost 950,000 new users each day. According to Global Digital Report, average internet user spends 10 hours online every day, there is 88,555 GB of internet traffic and will reach 4.8 ZB per year of traffic by 2022.

Going forward, mobile trends, digital wearables and contactless technology are predicted to give rise to some 28.5 billion networked devices and connections by 2022—a trend that the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated. Indeed, the internet is proving to be critical role to helping us navigate through this crisis with the minimum possible damage. Digitally advanced countries and regions have been able to make drastic shifts to telemedicine, online education and teleworking, and these capabilities will be crucial to the recovery of their economies.

With that in mind, how do you make sure that your own organization is positioned to reap the benefits of the digital trend?

Make Sure You’ve Got High Speed Internet Provider 

Not all internet providers are created equal. To ensure fast connection, you should look for internet providers that, among others, have high number of connections to other major networks. The  fewer points of transit there are, the smaller the potential for failure or slow connection.

In doing so, Internet Protocol (IP) is arguably the most important protocol in enabling the internet’s connection, as it is responsible for    transmitting digital packets (datagrams) from the source host to the destination host over a network connection. Each IP packet datagram is comprised of a header, which includes addresses for the destination, and a payload which is the data that is transported.

As such, Telin has invested significant resources in expanding its IP network, including IP transit points, with ability to deliver high SLA for 99.5% or more for IP Packet deliveries. This is backed by the Telin Internet Global Network (TIXNet) which comprises 207,300 kilometers of submarine cable and 59 Points of Presence in 28 countries, enabling Telin to offers superior services and solutions for every type of business starting from SME to Large Enterprise and Carriers.

Is Your Data Backed Up In Case of a Disaster?

Data centers have been around for a while now, but COVID-19 has thrust their role into the spotlight as businesses have moved to remote operations. In particular, enterprises and service providers are accelerating their moves into colocation facilities so they can move more of their workloads and data into the cloud.

According to Omdia, data center CAGR from 2019 through 2024 for physical facilities is expected to total 6.6% and the CAGR for interconnection during the same period is predicted to amount to 12.1%.

Over the past few years, Telin has built out a regional network of data centers in Southeast Asia and East Asia. At present we operate 19 Tier II to Tier IV Data Centres from Hong Kong all the way to East Timor, all of which are connected to Global Internet Network supported by seamless submarine cable connectivity and more. 

All of Telin’s data centers are equipped with backup power and disaster management plans, continuously updated security features, and highly reliable local as well as global connectivity. Moreover, Telin as a subsidiary of Indonesia’s largest telco provider, Telkom Group, also gives superior access to the Indonesian market, the largest in Southeast Asia.

As such, for customers who have dominant presence in Asia region and need a secure, efficient connection to the global network, Telin’s network is a leading choice with its best in class, seamless data centre solutions to meet your global needs.

Secure Your Connection

With cyberattacks on the rise, it’s also a good time to review your security arrangements. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks aims to bombard your website and servers with lots of traffic until your system is overwhelmed and can no longer respond to legitimate requests. DDoS attacks have been around for years, but lately a new, disturbing trend has emerged with hackers offering DDoS services for hire.

In June, Akamai, a leading internet infrastructure company, mitigated the largest packet per second (PPS) distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack ever recorded on the Akamai platform. The attack generated 809 million packets per second (Mpps), targeting a large European bank. Akamai also reported of mitigating a DDoS attack of 1.44 Tbps in the same month.

Fortunately, DDoS defense services are rising to the challenge by upping their capability to filter out anomalous traffic. Ideally, such filtering capacity is also backed by the ability to load balance among a wide network of distributed servers as solutions like Telin’s Content Delivery & Security (CDS) solution are designed to do, thus preventing the system from becoming overwhelmed.

CDS is designed to intelligently load balance traffic going your site or network. Under this approach, if some servers are congested or overloaded, other servers on Telin’s globally distributed network can share the load, thus maintaining availability of your sites and thwarting Distributed Denial of Services (DDoS) attacks. At the same time, each CDS server simultaneously inspects and filters traffic if it detects undesired anomalies, thus further protecting you.

In addition, CDS can improve content response time by caching static content in servers that are located closer to end users—with the benefit that our customers only have to invest in enough servers to handle their dynamic content.
