PLDT Enterprise inks deal with internet providers for use of int’l leased circuit

PLDT Enterprise, the B2B arm of digital services provider PLDT, sealed a deal with Japan-based IPS and InfiniVAN to provide reliable connectivity to customers through its international private leased circuit (IPLC).

IPS is a premier international data communication provider focused on connecting businesses in the Philippines to Hong Kong and North America through submarine cables. InfiniVAN was established in 2015 to provide network services to enterprises in the Philippines.

Through the deployment of PLDT Enterprise’s IPLC, InfiniVAN will be able to ensure the reliability of its operations. IPS and Infinivan’s seamless service is also made possible by the collocation of its data at ePLDT’s VITRO Data Centers — the country’s largest data center network, supported by PLDT’s expansive fiber optic network of over 300,000 kilometers.

“We at the PLDT Group are taking the necessary steps to be able to accelerate the fourth industrial revolution in the Philippines given the impact such transformation would have on both business and technology,” said Al Panlilio, president of Smart Communications and president and chief revenue officer of PLDT. “By forming partnerships that seek to improve the fundamental aspects of digital transformation—such as connectivity and infrastructure, we are setting the groundwork for the Philippines that is ready to take on the future.”
