Enabling enterprises to Pay As You Use & Scale Bandwidth in near-real-time
Colt Technology Services has extended ‘on demand’ capability to its premium business internet offering in Singapore, becoming the only provider in Singapore and the region to provide customers with IP Access On Demand via its SDN-enabled On Demand platform.
As a ‘pay as you use’ commercial model, enterprises can benefit from high bandwidth and agile internet connectivity, provisioned quickly without signing up for any long term contracts. Enterprises now take full control over their internet connections, flexing bandwidth up and down in near-real-time with a feature-rich self-service portal removing complicated service delivery processes and lead-times. For existing Colt On Demand customers, there is no need to add another port. The same physical port enabling On Demand Ethernet and On Demand Cloud connections can be used for IP Access On Demand – enabling seamless and efficient connectivity.
This new IP Access on Demand service is backed by Colt’s wholly-owned and managed metro area network in Singapore, part of the global Colt IQ Network, which connects to more than 900 data centres and 29,000 on-net buildings globally. Since its launch in 2017, Colt’s metro area network covers over 90% of Singapore and 95% of the Central Business District. With Colt being the only non-native carrier in Singapore that fully-owns its network, as well as fibre metro networks in key Asian cities (including Hong Kong, Tokyo and Osaka), the U.S. and major European cities, Colt is perfectly positioned to offer Singapore-based enterprises seamless connectivity solutions. Colt has branches and offices located around the world and provides a unique proposition to the local market.
Today’s business environment requires flexibility more than ever, and enterprises need connectivity solutions that can react to business challenges in real-time for them to continue to be successful. Colt’s On Demand offering has grown from strength-to-strength, with the current expansion in Asia enabling connectivity across business hubs around the globe.
