Converge ICT Solutions, a telecommunications services provider in the Philippines, has announced that it inked a memorandum of understanding with South Korean company KT Corp., to provide digital tools and innovations for the benefit of the local enterprises as the demand for businesses to use technology in their operations increases.
The companies are set to work together in several technological advancements, such as cloud-based video surveillance solution and transportation management technology.
Converge president and co-founder Maria Grace Uy said “As businesses continue to move their operations online, the demand is strong for cutting-edge enterprise solutions that would enable their different business processes,”
Converge CEO and co-founder Dennis Anthony Uy added they were “continuously working with global technology companies to provide augmented digital solutions that adapt to the requirements of our evolving business environment.”
Last week, converge announced it had started the construction of a cable landing station in Davao, which is part of the 15,000-kilometer (km) Bifrost cable system. The 745-square-meter (sqm), one-level facility sits on a 8,000-sqm lot.
The Bifrost project, Converge’s venture with Keppel Midgard Holdings Pte. Ltd., will connect the Philippines to Singapore, Indonesia, Guam and the west coast of North America. Expected to go live by 2024, the submarine cable has a design capacity of up to 15 terabits per second (Tbps).
The subsea cable system is designed to support the growing digital connectivity needs in the Asia-Pacific region while establishing a direct link with North America.
Consequently, converge continues to invest in new international cable networks to meet the growing need for data centers in Asia and other regions. To increase its data capacity, the company signs new contracts to install subsea cable infrastructure.
