CDN Hosting India

In May, Asia Pacific focused Pacnet completed its Content Delivery Network (CDN) Point of Presence (PoP) in Bangalore. The new Bangalore PoP, which complements Pacnet’s existing CDN PoP in Mumbai, completes the company’s comprehensive portfolio of CDN solutions in India and the Asia-Pacific region. Pacnet also offers colocation and dedicated servers as part of its hosting product solutions portfolio.

Over the past several months, Pacnet has announced a new data center build in Singapore, the opening of its facility in Chongqing, China, and an expansion of its Sydney, Australia facility. The company also announced an additional investment into its sub-sea fiber networks to build a 100 Gbps network, and an expansion of its IP VPN license in China.

Pacnet’s capability to offer international connectivity in India was made possible by the building of its international gateway PoP in Chennai in 2011 with interconnection to Singapore and Pacnet’s EAC-C2C subsea cable and Pacnet’s trans-Pacific cable EAC Pacific. These connections allow businesses in India to get access to high-speed connectivity into Asia, as well as on to the US through a single network.

Pacnet owns one of the region’s most extensive high-capacity submarine cable systems with over 46,000 km of fiber and connectivity to interconnected data centers across 16 cities in Asia-Pacific. Pacnet is headquartered in Hong Kong and Singapore, with offices in all key markets in the Asia-Pacific region and North America.
