Key information

Date started: 2014

Completion date: 2016

Client’s requirements

Telin Singapore, a facilities-based operator (FBO) licensed by info-communications media development authority (IMDA) of Singapore, is the first overseas subsidiary that was incorporated as part of Telkom Indonesia Group to spearhead its international expansion programme. As a member of Telkom Group, Telin Singapore’s strategic focus is to provide Infocomm and connectivity services from Indonesia and beyond. Telin Singapore has developed its own cable landing station within Singapore in 2008 and its first data centre located in Changi.

The project consists of a large Uptime Institute certified multi-tier (Tier III and Tier IV) data centre facility. The concurrent maintainable facility will be capable of offering disaster recovery services to Telin Singapore’s clients. As a carrier neutral facility, it will also have multiple Meet-Me-Rooms, 24/7 operations command centre, and also its own cable landing point.

Telin Singapore has recently achieved BCA-IMDA Green Mark Platinum accreditation, which in turn has led to stringent MEP design and energy optimisation.
