International internet connection: key to assure digital companies growth

In 2018, various digital companies in the region are estimated to hit USD 72 billion in gross merchandise value, a growth of 37 percent. This exceeds compounded annual growth rate records between 2015 and 2018.

Investments in technology companies are also growing. Investors are funneling more than USD 11 billions in 2018, nearly twice invested in the previous year (USD 5.8 millions).

The need for reliable connectivity is not limited just to the region. Carriers and digital businesses still have the need to reach other parts of the world. Expansions will demand the companies to connect to other countries and continents. Conversely, international companies will want to take advantage of opportunities open in the region. International companies may want to sell products and services directly to the new consumers in the region, or invest in expanding their business. 

Submarine cables as the backbone of the world communication network 

Submarine cables carry most of digital global connection, and the rest are handled by wireless systems. Every company with international business or employees relies on submarine cables, directly or indirectly. Most enterprises do not buy cable capacity directly and relies on their service providers to take care of their connectivity needs. But large content providers, digital players, and financial institutions recently have become big direct consumers of the submarine cable capacity.

Although submarine cable systems are capable of transmitting huge amounts of data compared to the alternatives, these cables are possible to be vulnerable towards disruptions. About 100-150 undersea cable failures happen every year all over the world, mostly (about two-thirds) caused by fishing gears and ships dropping anchors. Many submarine cables traverse geologically active area, and are vulnerable from seismic events, especially in the infamous "ring of fire" of Asia Pacific region. For example, various earthquakes have severed undersea cable systems near Taiwan in 2006 and 2016, disrupting business across Asia.

To mitigate the disruption to undersea communication, submarine cable builders should plan for possible threats and build diverse connectivity. When a disruption occurs to an undersea cable system, it should not interrupt global business operations of the cable users.

Telin diverse submarine cable systems deliver dependable global connectivity to business

To keep your global business connected, Telin offers international private leased circuit (IPLC) service, which provides customers with dedicated pure Layer-1 international data bandwidth.  Customers will get access to high-quality and reliable point-to-point private connections on our fibre optic network, dedicated for their exclusive use. The service will allow global companies to deliver real-time and mission-critical applications including data, voice and video.

Telin submarine cable system offers international data link to companies that requires global reach, to the US via SEA-US submarine cable and to the Western Europe via SEA-ME-WE5. Both cable systems are integrated directly by Indonesian Global Gateway (IGG cable). In 2019, Telin extends the infrastructure coverage through the Pacific Light Cable Network (PCLN) which will link Los Angeles and Hong Kong, and capable of transmitting 120 terabits data per second.

Our submarine cable service offers guarantee up to 99.9% end-to-end circuit availability. Ensuring this service levels, Telin submarine cable network has numerous circuit bearers and 65 Point of Presences (PoPs) in key countries and cities. The diverse network enables us to reroute traffic when unwanted breakage occurs, and thus avoid any single point of failure. Telin offers diversity by connecting to major cable networks including BSCS, TIS, SMW4, AAG, APCN-2, C2C, JUS, TGN-IA, UNITY and SJC.

Linking Manado (Indonesia), Davao (Philippines), Davao (Philippines), Piti (Guam), Makaha (Hawaii, the US), and Hermosa Beach (Los Angeles, the US), the newly built SEA-US cable bypasses seismically active area like South China Sea, Luzon Strait, and Japan. This line thus can avoid subsea earthquakes that can damage and disrupt the fibres, unlike many other submarine cables which run through earthquake-prone East Asian countries. 

In 2018, Telin achieved TTI (Threat to Interfere – Network Congestion) compliance and TTRec compliance by effective regular review which accomplished by 100% compliance. This shows our commitment to prevent the occurrence of congestion problems and interruption of transmission of data signals. Other than that, Telin also leads the supply on internet capacity by implementing new Session Border Controller to provide better security, connectivity, quality of service, regulatory, media services, improved statistics and billing information.

With its various submarine cable systems, Telin creates reliable global communication network, and ensure your operations run uninterrupted and assure your business growth.  Our 24-hour Network Management Team ensures that IPLC Service runs smoothly round-the-clock every day.

If you are looking for high quality, reliable global connectivity, Telin's submarine cable service is available today for you. Please visit our website at https://www.telin.net for more detailed information about Telin submarine cables.
