Apr. 26, 2017 – CDNetworks, a global content delivery service provider, announced a strategic partnership with Indosat Ooredoo Singapore Pte. Ltd (ISPL), a group member of Indosat Ooredoo, regarding the offering of CDN services with the intent to expand the CDN market into Southeast Asia.
As Indonesia’s leading digital telecommunications company, Indosat Ooredoo itself has 86 million mobile subscribers at the end of 2016 and thousands of enterprise customers for connectivity such as Internet, international and domestic connectivity, satellite video distribution, data center, as well as IT solutions. ISPL, as a group member of Indosat Ooredoo, provides international connectivity and data center services in Indonesia through Indosat Ooredoo’s network and infrastructure in addition to neighbouring countries to move content closer to Internet users or eyeballs in the region.
CDNetworks will leverage the partnership with the company as a platform to penetrate into the Southeast Asian market. Through the partnership, CDNetworks will work extensively with ISPL and Indosat Ooredoo to expand its CDN network infrastructure and broaden the availability of CDN services for local content businesses.
ISPL expects that the partnership will help reduce its cost of building infrastructure and broaden its sales channels by expanding CDN service network infrastructure in Indonesia and the regions where Internet users are growing. It also anticipates that web content providers will capitalise on CDNetworks’ CDN service to make their offerings available to users in the region, in a faster and more secure manner.
The partnership will also enable Indosat Ooredoo to use the combination of its own network and CDNetworks’ CDN platform to reduce its traffic cost and add an additional source of revenue to its existing business line with CDN services. It will utilise CDNetworks’ network of over 200 global PoPs (points of presence) to transmit content faster and more reliably to help Indonesian content providers expand globally.
“We are extremely pleased to have this partnership with ISPL,” said Youngwook, Choi, VP of CDNetworks. “Based on our experiences in successful operations of CDN services through diverse global telecom carriers, we will do our best to operate the CDN platform with the highest stability and support our partner so that both parties can benefit from the synergy intended by this partnership.”
“This partnership is part of our strategy to strengthen our services in the content and OTT market. The massive number of mobile subscribers of Indosat Ooredoo combined with our ability to connect to Internet users in Indonesia is very important for content & OTT players to be successful in their business. This will surely bring more opportunities to our customers in doing their business with their end-users.” said Bambang Varia Wibowo, Managing Director of ISPL.
“We are pleased to have this CDN partnership with CDNetworks facilitated by ISPL. We strongly believe this partnership will deliver more advantages for our corporate customers who are willing to reach Internet users in Indonesia as well as for Indosat Ooredoo mobile users in which they will have access to contents in faster and more reliable way.” said Mrs. Herfini Haryono, Director & Chief Wholesale & Enterprise Officer of Indosat Ooredoo.
