Equinix, Inc., the leading provider of network-neutral data centers and Internet exchange services, today announced that it is hosting the Singapore Peering Forum 2007, featuring speakers from network and content industry leaders Yahoo!, Limelight Networks and Etisalat. The forum will take place at the Sheraton Towers Singapore on November 27, 2007.
With the increasing popularity of content, such as online video, driving bandwidth demand in Asia, both network service providers and content providers have turned to peering to support the growth. Peering allows network service providers, content companies and content distributors to directly connect to each other thus enhancing performance, reliability and reducing transit costs.
At the Singapore Peering Forum, Equinix will discuss local and global peering dynamics while leading network providers and content providers, such as Yahoo!®, Limelight Networks and Etisalat will share their insights on content delivery and networking strategies in Asia.
The Singapore Peering Forum will be chaired by Raphael Ho from Equinix and scheduled speakers include Kirk Williams from Yahoo!®, Limelight Networks’ Akito Kurokawa, and Khalid Ismael of Etisalat.
