It is part of its nationwide expansion
Converge recently opened a new network node in Taiwan as part of its expansion efforts. In a press statement, Converge owner Dennis Anthony Uy said that the Taiwan node will “serve as a buffer and backup for Converge ICT’s current fiber network, providing better and stronger network resiliency and reliability in case of emergency network downturns.”
Among the benefits of the Taiwan node includes a direct connection to Google’s data center in Changhua County, Taiwan—the tech company’s largest data center. Currently, Converge has nodes in Singapore, USA, and Hong Kong.
“This critical deployment for Converge ICT’s network operations is also done in line with the company’s current campaign to attain global-standard technical requirements for reachability and reliability, spreading its network capacities to address any possible points of failure and congestion beforehand,” Converge said in its statement.
