ePLDT bolsters telco ecosystem with Radius Telecoms partnership

July 24, 2023
The enterprise-focused service provider adds providers to enhance its fiber connectivity options when the data center is activated next year.

ePLDT, PLDT’s ICT subsidiary, supported by its B2B arm, PLDT Enterprise, partners with fiber internet provider Radius Telecoms, Inc. to strengthen its telco ecosystem in its upcoming VITRO Sta. Rosa (VSR) Data Center when it goes live in early 2024.

Radius Telecoms will establish a point of presence at VSR, providing connectivity solutions to enterprises and hyperscalers who will soon collocate in the facility.

Similarly, Radius Telecoms is working with ePLDT to expand the fiber connectivity of the VITRO Data Centers with a diverse fiber facility linking VSR to VITRO Makati 2 and other vital data centers in Metro Manila, advancing ePLDT's data center interconnect service.

"The addition of Radius Telecoms, Inc. will undoubtedly enhance the hyperconnectivity, resilience, and scalability of VITRO Sta. Rosa, ensuring our clients can navigate the digital landscape with confidence and seize endless growth opportunities," said Victor S. Genuino, ePLDT President and CEO.

Designed to be what ePLDT claims to be the Philippines' first true hyper scale data center, VSR is equipped with at least three diverse points of entries connected to eight telco-neutral meet-me-rooms to cater to the stringent network requirements of hyperscalers looking to set up Availability Zones and Points-of-Presence in the country.

"Radius and ePLDT's visions are very aligned," said Quiel Delgado, president and CEO of Radius Telecoms. "Through this partnership, I believe we can create a big ripple in the industry. That's why I'm excited to see the formalization of this partnership. But much work needs to be done, and you can count on Radius and the team to ensure that we will be successful in this endeavor."
