Servcorp, an Australian-based multinational organization that sells serviced office space, virtual office products and IT services, has expanded its footprint in Asia-Pacific with Equinix’s colocation services, to launch its new mobile VoIP product, Servcorp OneFone.
Servcorp OneFone is a mobile application which allows customers to be contacted on a local telephone number via a cellular network. The deployments in Equinix’s International Business Exchange (IBX) colocation facilities in Australia, Japan and Singapore would give Servcorp a choice of ideal network service providers in each region. Equinix’s established business ecosystems include over 450 cloud partners and 950 network providers, 600 IT service providers.
‘Saved on Cap-Ex and mobility costs’
Through Equinix’s global footprint and network-dense data centers, Servcorp would be able to offer low-latency services to its clients as hops are now reduced during VoIP routing. Besides the low-latency benefits, the Equinix Marketplace has provided Servcorp with access to over 4,400 customers. This enables Servcorp to sell services to other Equinix customers and find best-in-breed service providers to help support the growth of Servcorp’s business.
“The overall benefits offered by Equinix made them the only choice. From a costs perspective we have saved on Cap-Ex and mobility costs,” said Daniel Kukucka, chief technology officer (CTO), Servcorp. “This was made possible through providing consistency across all operating regions, and the flexibility of choice to connect to dedicated network providers. Equinix’s global colocation footprint means we are perfectly placed for expansion into new markets in Europe and Middle East over the next six months, and with the Equinix Marketplace we have access to over 4000 potential partners as we continue to grow our business.”
