Epsilon, a unique technology company providing global connectivity services, has been chosen by (LWS) Lifeway Singapore, an information technology (IT) service provider, to deliver colocation, remote peering, and data centre interconnection solutions in order to power its global 5G Cyber Range solution. Epsilon delivers on-demand connectivity services that LWS benefits from and this can be extended to meet enterprise and regulator 5G testing scenarios.
The Cyber Range 5G infrastructure of LWS delivers its customers with a flexible and secure testing environment, where they can ensure their 5G solution’s performance, feasibility, and security. The private network infrastructure and interconnection services of Epsilon will support its Cyber Range environment that allows LWS’s customers to secure their smart cities, smart factories, self-driving cars, and other Industry 4.0 solutions under production and operational scenarios. Worldwide 5G network infrastructure market revenue was estimated to almost double in 2020 and reach $8.1 billion, as per Gartner.
“5G deployments are accelerating around the world and that requires robust testing environments to ensure security, viability and optimal performance. We’re excited to support LWS’s 5G Cyber Range solution by offering scalable, agile and global connectivity. With Infiny and our on-demand connectivity solutions, we are enabling LWS to scale-up testing environments and better serve its customers’ requirements across the globe,” said Warren Aw, Managing Director, Asia Pacific at Epsilon.
“It’s great to be supporting LWS in its plans to roll out the 5G Cyber Range solution and realise the future of Industry 4.0.”
LWS has a 5G Cyber Range infrastructure that is deployed at Epsilon’s colocation data centre facilities in London, Singapore, and New York. Epsilon’s secure and interconnected colocation delivers LWS with the base it needs to host, connect, deploy, and manage its services, network, and applications. Above this, LWS uses Epsilon’s Data Centre Interconnection and Remote Peering services to maintain traffic close to LWS’s customers via a carrier-grade MEF-certified backbone network for optimal user experience and lower latencies.
“In 2021, 5G deployments are going to grow with more organisations developing 5G applications and services. The challenge is to ensure that these solutions and critical data that are traversing through the 5G network are secured under production environments. With the support of Epsilon, we’re offering 5G infrastructure that spans the globe and our customers such as enterprises, telcos and regulators should be able to validate the resilience and security of IoT or private data. We can spin up a testing environment wherever it is needed and help to bring the next 5G innovation securely to market,” said Freddi Huang, Chief Executive Officer at Lifeway Singapore.
“Whether that’s a new application, protocol or technology, 5G is something that will change how we live and work. It’s a tremendous opportunity and that requires agile infrastructure and robust cyber testing,” he added.
Epsilon’s services are provided via Infiny, a Network as a Service (NaaS) self-service platform that permits its customers to get on-demand connectivity access to the world’s leading data centres, internet exchanges, and the clouds. With Infiny, LWS has quick access to Epsilon’s global ecosystem of more than 260 world-leading communications and technology hubs over 41 cities.
