The partnership gives both Flexential and Telstra customers the ability to directly interconnect to the FlexAnywhere Network and the Telstra network proving the lowest latency possible for domestic and international connectivity.
"We've seen incredible demand for connectivity into Asia-Pacific over the last year, so partnering with Flexential allows us to establish a U.S. Pacific Northwest presence for our customers at the most interconnected data center in the region," said Nick Collins, President of Telstra, Americas. "Interconnection is the key to modern computing, cloud, AI and ecommerce. Our customers want secure, low latency connectivity between Asia Pacific, the U.S. and beyond."
Telstra, one of the largest mobile network operators in the world, manages a core subsea network of more than 400,000km that terminates in 58 data centers in Asia, Europe and the Americas, with access to more than 2,000 PoPs in 200 countries around the globe.
The NAP of the Northwest houses the New Cross Pacific?subsea cable (NCP) with 80 Tbs of capacity, which supports China Telecom, China Unicom, Chunghwa Telecom, China Mobile, and Korea Telecom and is the largest in the Pacific.
