Under the agreement, AsiaSat’s existing satellite and ground infrastructure will be put to work in line with Turbidite’s edge data centre platform to support the accelerated demand for digital services.
The partnership will bring together the expertise and skills of the two companies to provide hosting services alongside satellite and ground-based connectivity from AsiaSat’s Tai Po earth station.
Bill Barney, co-founder and chief executive officer of Turbidite, said: “We are delighted to enter into this partnership with AsiaSat as we broaden our edge data centre solutions to support new mandates by the growing number of OTTs and media companies as they continue to drive up digital traffic.
“Together with AsiaSat, we are able to further empower these customers to transform into digital-ready organisations with secure access, flexible transport/bandwidth options and real-time deployment.”
Also commenting, Roger Tong, AsiaSat’s chief executive, added: “We see this partnership as one of our strategic moves to support customers with a breadth of new services to cope with the rapid pace of digital transformation.
“Turbidite’s extensive expertise in the data centre and network infrastructure deployment and management will truly complement our current satellite and ground-based solution portfolios. We look forward to working with Turbidite to further develop and enhance our infrastructure to meet the flexibility and diversity required by our customers.”
