Delivers connectivity with speeds of up to 10 Gbps for customers in Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore
Tokyo, Japan, 21 April 2022 – Colt Technology Services has today announced that it can now support
Colt On Demand cloud connectivity to AWS Direct Connect Hosted services, with speeds of up to 10 Gbps,
for customers in Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore.
10 Gbps connectivity was previously only available on AWS Direct Connect Dedicated services, but with
this enhancement, customers can now connect directly to AWS Direct Connect Hosted services without
having to use cross-connects, reducing their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and increasing speed of
delivery. Customers can also make use of different AWS virtual interfaces (private, public, transit).
Initially launched in Europe last year, with this announcement, Colt is now offering the service in Asia (Hong
Kong, Japan, and Singapore), with high bandwidth of up to 10Gbps, in a fully flexible connectivity solution
with Colt On Demand.
The recent increase in hybrid working has also increased the need for flexible traffic control. Colt On
Demand enables rapid network deployment to take full advantage of the flexibility of the cloud. In addition,
bandwidth can be adjusted in real-time, according to the ratio of office workers and those working remotely,
enabling the cost effective creation of a high perfomance cloud computing environment.
Masato Hoshino, President and Asia Representative at Colt, said: “We have built a strong relationship with
AWS and, as an AWS Partner, Colt has provided AWS connectivity to a large number of customers across
all industries in Asia. This announcement highlights our continued investment in APAC and our commitment
to provide our customers with agile, flexible, and secure cloud connectivity services to meet their high
bandwidth needs and help them to take advantage of everything the cloud has to offer.”
Recognised as a Visionary in the Gartner 2021 Magic Quadrant for Network Services, Colt also received
Frost & Sullivan’s 2021 European Customer Value Leadership Award. The company has industry-leading
Net Promotor Scores (NPS), reflecting Colt employees’ high motivation.
