PacketFabric has selected subsea fibre-optic network operator StrataNet to provide secure, private intra-Asia capacity, extending its disruptive Software-defined Network (SDN) platform into Asia.
This strategic partnership should enable PacketFabric to reach the Asian continent, making PacketFabric’s network-as-a-service platform accessible throughout StrataNet’s intra-Asia locations.
In addition, StrataNet will gain instant access to 19 additional markets and more than 150 collocation facilities across the United States, as well as the ability to reach Europe.
The PacketFabric platform enables connectivity services between carrier-neutral collocation facilities at terabit-scale. PacketFabric is said to reduce the sourcing and provisioning times of network services to minutes by leveraging an innovative, automated SDN-based network architecture and the latest in optical and packet-switching technology.
“Most of our focus had been on establishing a robust, reliable network footprint throughout the United States,” explains Chad Milam, president and COO, PacketFabric. “Our partnership with StrataNet will allow us to bring our network to new markets in Asia and offer reliable, private access to network and cloud environments throughout our ecosystem, regardless of physical location. We couldn’t be more excited about redefining the way clients in the Asian market procure and manage network connectivity within the region and the rest of the world.”
“We’re excited to partner with PacketFabric,” states StrataNet CEO Chris de Josselin. “This mutually-beneficial partnership will also expand StrataNet’s North American footprint, enabling us to serve a wider range of customers beyond Asia across the continental United States, with an extremely fast time to market.”
