The Fast and Effective Way To Connect You With the World

Posted by Briana from Telin on Feb 18, 2021 9:30:00 AM



With the global nature of data sharing these days, peering has become an important part of information exchange. ‘Peering’ means that two networks exchange information directly without using a third-party transit point. As such, peering typically delivers faster connection and lower latency.

Peering can deliver key benefits for companies including reduced cost and reliance on outside transit points, as well as lower latency. However, when looking for a partner to establish peering arrangements with, it goes without saying that not all partners are created equal.


 How the Right Peering Arrangements Can Benefit You

Enterprises need to consider whether the provider in question can help them access enough eyeballs to make the effort worth it, and whether the provider can help them access more reliable and secure network quality with guaranteed SLA.

These benefits are particularly important when reaching users in countries like Indonesia. Indonesia is home to 272 million people, making it the fourth population in the world, of which 197 million people were connected to internet as of the end of 2020. This vast population is spread across 17,000 islands including 5 major islands. From East to West the entire archipelago measures 5,245 km (116% wider than the USA, a 7-8 hour flight). As such, Indonesia is a highly promising market for digital content and connectivity. 

But this enormous demand for digital content must contend with still limited infrastructure, with most traffic routing through the main exchange in Jakarta. Previous studies by Telin have found that latency for users can be significant, especially in remote areas and outer islands of Indonesia.

For Enterprises interested in reaching Indonesia’s fourth largest global population and tapping its above-average demand for content, therefore it is important to consider whether a peering arrangement would be beneficial.


Why Consider Telin as Your Peering Provider

To optimally support businesses and organizations with activities in Indonesia, Telin has set up multiple fast peering connections globally, enabling foreign companies to reach Indonesians and vice versa. Mostly of the leading OTT players in the world are able to connect with Telin’s numerous global PoP, which are located in 58 different locations worldwide. Through these PoPs they can then tap into Telkom’s 200 million eyeballs.

These connections are supported by Telin’s resources and vast network as a subsidiary of Indonesia’s largest telco provider, Telkom Indonesia, which has over 200 million subscribers and the most expansive domestic infrastructure in Indonesia. The latter is important as these eyeballs are scattered throughout the archipelago, and other providers may not be able to give the widespread geographical distribution needed to effectively reach the population. 

In addition, if you need any other services, Telkom Indonesia and Telin have a broad range of offerings geared towards both B2B and B2C businesses. With Telkom Indonesia and Telin, you get:

  • access to the best infrastructure in Indonesia including data centers
  • 24/7 support and monitoring
  • secure, reliable connectivity
  • professional and trustworthy counterparts  

In short, Telin’s resources and network in Indonesia can help you to connect to Indonesian eyeballs more effectively and efficiently.
